    What is your budget?
    What will you be doing with this AR?

    Bravo co. might have one, but most have A2 sights. MidwayUSA might have some DPMS set ups like that.

    You could get any barrel and whatever gas block you wanted individually. It is not hard to find barrels with setscrew dimples or add the dimples yourself. This is what i would do.

    Noveske is the best. Followed by DD and BCM.

    Funny when I think of the best its names like Lilja, Krieger, Lothar-Walther, McGowen, Shilen..

    Thou I will give you credit PacNor (Noveske) is miles ahead of the other two you mentioned...

    DD and BCM are great barrels for good accuracy and longevity, but Noveske and the others tarosean mentioned are in a league of their own. White Oak makes a very good upper.

    If i were building a match rifle i would want Krieger.

    BCM is always out of stock for what I'm looking for.
