    Default AR15 50 bmg Upper

    Anyone have or play around with any of these? there are over a dozen manufactures that make one for the ar15 lower. i figured this is a good starting point to get myself into a 50, and keep the price close to $2000 with some glass if i search long enough. just looking for some insight or recommendation. or if someone has one what they think about it. also anyone who has need them for sale new or used.
    BTW this is the one i have been told to look at http://www.tactilite.com/Uppers-50-B...pua-s/1814.htm

    Would it even fit on a -15, or would you have to go with a -10?

    I was going to go with a Ferret 50 upper, but there was a 6 month wait and I spent my money on something else in the meantime.

    It seems to me in the end you are talking about dedicated lower, potentially a steel one or you will destroy it after a while so why not to get an integral
    system of the popular single shot ones?.... you are not saving any money by going AR upper only.

    The lower will not be "destroyed" but it will be dedicated and any use in any other AR
    that one will have more tolerances than a 80 year old prostitute in a Navy town.
    Unless one doesn't care if the system is accurate or not. There is no recoild lug or
    anything preventing a regular AR lower from being badly hammered. Simple physics.
