    Who makes good dissipator uppers? One with a carbine gas system, not just a rifle that's been chopped.

    I had a bushmaster, heavy, fluted barrel dissipator once for several years.........it was insanely accurate but I sold it.

    Oh well.......

    It was super nice though and totally reliable.

    I built one using a Model 1 upper. A2 carry handle/sights. A2 stock. 5.56 chamber. Wanted to keep it simple and able to shoot any ammo. It has a HBAR profile, so is just a tad front heavy, which works out very well for shooting off-hand.

    Shoots great and has been reliable. May build another just like it. Or, maybe a super lightweight :whistling:
