    Oh, now you bring that up slacker. You should have updated your post so people had some idea what you are talking about.

    If the entire URG was Colt, I would call it with 3 hundo.


    ETA- The more I think about it, the more I would do it. Even as a 1/9 barrel.

    A 1/9 as an SBR barrel makes as much sense as condoms with pinpricks in them.

    Opening post said it was an upper but I added the word complete to make you feel better.

    Did you end up getting it?

    Hopefully the goofing around humor came through in my post and it wasn't taken as insulting.

    Nope I understood, I shoulda included a smiley or something.

    I did not. I might have went ahead and bought it but I haven't heard back from him since I made the thread. He's an older guy with no smart phone and I think he only checks his email from his home computer every couple weeks, I should have got his phone number but oh well. I found a LE trade in 6933 upper instead.

    Agreed. At $300, I would buy a complete Colt upper even with 1:9 twist.
