    I started out with this lower.

    Then I did a little horse trading for this new upper and wound up with this!

    I am happy. :supergrin:

    I wasn't really looking for a fluted barrel but I got a great deal on the upper so thats what I wound up with. I am not sure of what advantages it has though.

    And that is simply one very nice looking rifle....FYI, I have S&W MP15 rifles and they have been just as reliable as my Colt and RRA....good stuff.

    I hear a lot of good about DSA as well lately.

    The flutes are intended to help the barrel cool faster and reduce weight. It looks great, too.

    Fluted barrels increase surface area, reduce weight, increase cooling, increases stiffness, decreases vibrational distortion. You can't lose.

    You'd lose money since the only thing about fluted barrels is the higher cost of manufacturing.

    Very nice! I'm really digging that barrel! Only thing I'd add would be a Daniel Defense quad rail, but I'm partial to those. Regardless, you have a very sweet AR!

    Very nice! I've been looking at DSA, their upper prices aren't too bad and they aren't too far from where I live. You gotta post a range report when you break her in.

    I less into the upper than I do the lower and I only have $287.00 into the lower. So this is my budget rifle.
