So that AR15 question I asked the other day was b/c Palmetto had the Colt 6720 (the rifle I have wanted for a LONG time) is on sale for $800 (a fantastic deal for a colt rifle). However, Palmetto is unable to sell the rifle to either me or my FFL due to the convoluted and foggy wording of the laws. I also missed out on all the great BCM uppers as they are all out of stock or out of my price range.

My question to my friends here at NYF, where can I get a quality upper (BCM, Colt, military specification of better) with a pencil profile (.625 at the gas block) that won't break the bank. I've looked all over and cannot find anything. Thanks in advance

Adams Arms Evo Ultralight would work but you either have to have your existing AR's registered or Mag unremovable or Thordson stock

best bet is find an upper you like and swap out the barrel for a pencil profile one. PSA will ship any upper you want right to your door just not a full rifle or stripped lower + LPK in the same order.

They will ship stripped lower and parts kit. I know someone who had it sent to FFL.

What is your budget? i picked up my evo ultralight barrel for only $230. You cant edge much under $200 and expect a quality barrel, especially a niche one.

Learn to build an upper if you really want custom, it's super easy. If you can change a cars oil and tires, you can build an AR-15 upper.

I've liked the Daniel Defense uppers for a few years, quality, at a decent price, though building your own isn't hard as others have mentioned.

Check out primary arms for uppers too. I just bought one with no complaints. I don't know what the carry in pencil or lightweight profiles, but the government profile I bought from them came with BCG and charging handle.
