    I wanted a URGI but the cost killed it for me.

    I had a Colt BCG already and everything else ran me less than $700 and I went 16” instead of 14.5 p&w.

    Upper $80

    dd bcg $160
    charging handle $90
    gas tube/block $60
    warcomp $130


    total $770 and that's just grabbing the parts from Brownells and not waiting for sales.It seems to me that they roughly value that mk16 rail at $500 which is way high for a 556 rifle. I think we'll eventually see it when the clone guys stop buying the urg
    I did a similar breakdown, using the Brownells catalog, and some substitution:

    Colt M4 upper assy $178.99
    DD 14.5" mid-gas govt profile barrel $275
    Colt BCG (Shark Arms, not listed in Brownells catalog) $125
    Geissele ACH DDC $99
    equiv: Surefire 3-prong FH $129
    equiv: Geissele Mk 14 13" rail DDC $275
    Geissele gas block SS nitride $69 (ETA: included w/ Mk 14 rail)
    gas tube (nominal) $10
    pin & weld service for muzzle device $40
    shipping to/from pin & weld service $35 (that's what it actually costs me whenever I do it)
    single cross-pin service for gas block $20

    I come out to $1,255 using those substitutions (3P vs 4P, Mk14 vs Mk16, etc). FWIW. YMMV, your shipping costs are probably different than mine, also.

    -------------------------
    ETA: when deleting the Geissele GB, the revised number is $1,187.

    You wouldn’t need to buy a gas block. The barrel and the rail would come with one so you’d have a $25 has block to sell on the EE.

    you're absolutely right, the Mk 14 rail includes the super gas block, so I should subtract $69 from the total, revised to $1,187.

    Shark arms has the colt uppers for $125 so thats another $50 off. They also have colt upper/bcg/ charging handle for $225. You could sell the ch to make the combo like $200. Just ideas for anyone that does want to build one instead.

    I have ordered from Chris at Shark Arms several times. He is great and they are GTG. I was a little skeptical the first time because of the outdated website and ordering process, but call him and he will take care of you
