For those who would prefer M-LOK over Keymod for the handguard, regardless of phallophobia, Brownells has an M-LOK version on sale for $20 more.

This one is Gen 2, FWIW, but otherwise looks about the same.

The one Q&A says barrel is phosphate COATED. Doesn't say anything about the lining. The Keymod one is nitride coated, inside and out.

I believe if you read correctly it's 259
Not 249
Maybe that's why you can get code in to make cheaper. Lol

Whomever is saying these are bad obviously doesnt know much about the AR world a $240 complete upper the bolt and barrels are worth $200 alone. There are currently only a half dozen of companies producing milspec parts for M4/AR and they all meet the government specs and all our compatible with each other. Unless you're building high end like billet Seekins, Vltor or similar it truely makes very little difference on brand and where you buy them.

They are selling Ruger AR556’s complete for less than $500. Same with the M&P Sport II. Based on what I’m hearing on these Brownell specials, I’d check out other offers for those new to the game.

SG had the Ruger AR556 for <$500 from black Friday to late February on and off. M&P sport II seems like the better buy though each is a deal for $500. No free float barrel, and the annoying gas block site makes them harder to upgrade than should be.

YMMV on quality, but mine was utter junk and was sent back same day. As block was bound up hard on the “free float hand guard”... 3 of 6 bolts attaching to barrel but were cross threaded sideways. Muzzle device had one of the ports half clogged from the factory with steel that wasn’t punched all the way through. Crush washer was off to the side and not centered. Bolt inside BCG barely wanted to move. After lubrication it was not any better. Imported trash... beware!

dang, you can slap one of these on the $150 PSA lower, and have a nice build for under $400 after shipping and FFL

Brownells is fine, until they screw up your order and won't reply to email or pick up the phone. Other than that, you'll never have a problem, until you have a problem.

Ordered a few. Shipped fast and worked perfect on multiple Lowers. Can't beat $239.00 already assembled unless you want real specific build.

Are these uppers pretty much the same quality as those you find in other budget builds? PSA, etc? Or is there an added benefit with this particular brand?

In this price range you will get a decent upper that works and is accurate enough. What company you buy from doesn't matter much other the customer service.

Watch Palmetto State Armory, they will have complete lower halves on sale for $129+ (standard/m4 furniture) - $149+ (magpul furniture), often with free shipping. Their deals change pretty much daily.

I watch PSA everyday, order from them ALOT, 2 rifles and 450 5.56 rounds, and a vortex red dot + 10 Pmag combo in the last 2 weeks just to give you an idea. I've never seen them have a complete upper for less than $250 including BCG and charging handle.

They've had their 10.5 upper w/ BCG & CH for $229 a lot recently. Without BCG and CH its $169.00. I know this because im VERY tempted. I think between the two of us we probably cover the power bill at P.S.A. monthly.

Just ordered mine cant wait to get it. Now gotta find a good deal on a lower. Any suggestions??

Let see here's their likely costs for the budget build:

Stripped Upper 30
Upper Kit 10
BCG 50
Charging Handle 10
Barrel 45
10" FF handguard 20
Gas tube/block 20
A2 muzzle device 5
______________________
Best Guess Cost 190

That's a pretty slim profit margin on an AR like this.

I put together a 186.00 upper build last week, but that involved getting the barrel free from BCA because of a veterans's day giveaway.

At this current price this is a fantastic deal. Would be worth grabbing one or two just to stow away in the safe for "buddy" guns or even for parts. Full 7075 upper, M16 bcg and charging handle included. I just can't see any down side to buying these.

not too bad of a deal. don't like the hand guard being that short. I saw one on i think fully loaded's website that had a 15" hand guard for about the same price.

Serious question..........why is anyone selling/making KeyMod handguards anymore? As soon as I see a combo like this, KeyMod breaks it.

0 votes
0 votes

I like both Keymod and M-lok as far as looks. So far I have 2 uppers with Keymod handguards with Keymod accessories. I want to get an upper with M-lol next. What is the reason it breaks the deal for you? (Just so my tone is clear, I am not trying to me a smartass)

Keymod has been found to be inferior to mlok in virtually every way. It's still better than a full picatinny quad rail due to the weight savings. mlok and keymod are basically the same, but one does it better.

Following up on this months later, I still have this upper and never got the credit from Brownells despite chatting with a guy who said I would. Overall, not a great experience with Brownells but decent enough upper.

0 votes

The reviews on Brownells' website do not inspire confidence. Although, maybe it wouldn't be a bad idea for a steel ammo training upper if you're skilled enough to fix the (apparently) inevitable, out-of-box problems. By way of comparison, it would probably cost you $450 to build one yourself with decent components, if you sniped enough deals over time.

More like $360 with decent components. But piecing together over a year and some change sucks. Gotta wait for fire sales, and turn down "good" deals in pursuit of the ultimate cheapo build.

Got mine when they last ran this special about a month or so ago... flawless and looks good on a 149 PSA Enhanced Lower... 25 transfer is the only thing that put me over the 450 ;-)
