So I bought a spike's lower and I'm looking for an upper; please provide suggestions.
Things I want in the upper:
*Completely flat top - no triangle front sight.
*I am going to put an EoTech and troy sights on it, if it doesn't already include that
*16" M4 profile
*M4 feed ramps
*All black furniture
*Must be ultra reliable
*going for the KISS method
I like this troy model, but I can't seem to find any reviews on it, although I know their sights/add on parts are high-quality. Does anyone have experience with this?
