So I'm finally building my first AR!! I got my lower the other day from a great local manufacturer here in town. I am taking the approach that I'd rather spend a little extra to get just what I want so I added some Magpul furniture right off the bat. I couldn't be happier with the lower!!
I'm beyond lost on what to do with the upper.... I will be using it for a little of everything. Range gun, camping, coyotes and want to get into three gun as well. I have been doing quite a bit of research and have it narrowed down to what I want in an upper. I want a mid-length, 1/7 twist, 16 inch among numerous other things. I was originally going to go with a CMMG direct impingement as a starter and go from there. Now that I have decided to spend a little more and get what I want off the bat I need some help deciding between two.
I am leaning towards a LMT direct impingement but also have the option of a gas piston CMMG. They both have all the specs I am looking for and are literally within a few dollars of each other. Never shot a gas piston so I don't know what to think. Like I said I'm leaning towards the LMT as they are one of the top manufacturers around but have heard nothing but good about CMMG.
What do y'all think?
