    Both are great weapons. For the LWRC remember in addition to the coming one peice carrier, don't forget the:

    -cold hammer forged barrel
    -Upper assembly features a ferritic salt bath nitro carburized interior
    and exterior finish
    -Carriers featuring TeflonNickel plating

    These features have made a difference to me.

    I have over 7,000-rounds through my LWRC 10.5-inch upper. Some of that is suppressed and over 2,000-rounds of that was in two different Carbine Courses.

    The only mechanical failures I've had are:
    - The buffer spring that came with the upper was faulty (Wolff Plus).
    - The extractor started failing to extract.
    - One of the Carrier key screws broke.

    LWRC sent me a new buffer spring (which I have since relegated as a backup along with the H2 buffer - I am using an H3 buffer with a flatwire CS spring). The extractor resulted in FTEs and was replaced with no further issues.

    I did not even know that the screw was busted until I decided to check the screws and the broken one kept spinning and would not tighten. LWRC shipped me a replacement Carrier overnight at no charge and I have not had any issues since.

    I am awaiting the arrival of my Select-fire Transferable AR-15 and I am considering buying another LWRC upper to use on it. YMMV.

    I know he hasn't responded yet, but I've asked this very question to rob_s.

    I found that his advice in this regard was worth serious consideration.

    I'll let him speak for himself but he's put a lot of thought into the myriad considerations.

    This parrallels my experience with the 16"--except the extractor hasn't failed yet . I have replaced the buffer spring that came with the rifle and staked the carrier key screws, which were not staked.
    There are none so blind as those who will not see.

    I'd get the LWRC personally.

    Has LWRCi ever gotten into production their (non-black) anodized receivers? I've been waiting.
