    I'm going to be swapping my A2 upper receiver for a flattop. That's the receiver only, not the entire upper. All other parts with the exception of the FA and the dustcover will be re-used.

    Do I need to headspace after the switch?

    in theory you don't have to... but it's always good to check

    What he said.

    OTOH, how long has it been since you checked your headspace? BSW

    Is that some kinda joke?

    Just kidding! I just got the rifle back in November so it should be ok.
