    Buyer beware, did not include barrel nut or any hand guard components. A good start to a nice rifle but far from a complete unassembled upper

    absolutely a great price for what is included as it clearly states in the item description… I just forget many people do not know how to read or refuse to read and then complain…

    For the price you can’t beat it anywhere. When will these be back in stock?

    So if I want to build a 6.8 spc I can buy this kit. Then buy the 6.8 barrel and swap the barrel out correct?

    I was a military armorer and licensed gunsmith for 20 years. Not everyone knows the terminology. A photo would help a lot, and there are many items on your site that do not have any photo at all. Put yourself in your customers shoes. You deal with this every day, the customer doesn’t.
