but I can't find any in stock.

6.8 and/or 300blk, both with 10.x" barrel. Mid-range quality/price. I've tried Brownells, Midway, DD, RRA, Stag, Radical, etc...

Where do y'all suggest I look?

Thanks y'all.

PSA is TO on all 300s in 10" and appears to not do 6.8.

DSG does have in stock Grey Ghost Precision which I'm unfamiliar with and Noveske which I don't wish to afford.

Since I haven't yet even submitted my Form1, I guess there's time to look around.

Hardened Arms has 300 SBR uppers for a great price. Didn't see any SBR 6.8s.


It is far more important to be able to hit the target than it is to haggle over who makes a weapon or who pulls a trigger.

I can personally vouch for Blackstone Arms and they seem to have uppers in stock. They use ARP barrels and my 12.5" easily shoots sub-MOA with everything I've fed it.

Try Rainier Arms as well. They typically are higher end but do have sales.

You'll be hard pressed to find many 6.8 in a 10.5". I know Wilson Combat has a SBR rifle with 11.3" barrel. Noveske makes a 6.8 short barrel but not sure what chamber it is, just says MOD 1 match chamber. Plus the twist is an 12 which I feel isn't enough in a short barrel.

The 6.8 is the #1 choice for hunting deer and hogs in an AR15

Try Aero Precision for your 300blk upper if PSA is out.

No worries. up I guess I misread the OP was needing a 10 incher.

I bought a complete SBR upper from Aero. Seems like a nice unit for the $. I have an Aimpoint on it so can't say how accurate it, don't really care much at the ranges it's used for anyhow. I'd buy one again.

I second Blackstone Arms for 6.8.... given at some point you realize that 12.5" is a lot more realistic.

I spoke with Eric at Black stone. Yes, sounds like I’ll be going 12.5”.

Thanks for y’alls input.
