Guy - We'll have to chat about AR's...I'm torn between adding a flat top upper to my Colt or building another complete rifle....
yesterday I just impulse purchased to get something going.
Did your Colt come with large take down pins, or the smaller mil-spec variety? If the former, you'll need to find an upper that is compatible, or get a large-to-small pin adapter.
Ordered all of my uppers as flat-tops with rails for more flexibility when mounting optics. Ordered the first one with a detachable carry handle with iron sights and added a rail adapter later. I eventually pulled that off when I added the EOTech. Finally added a 1" riser to bring it up to my eye height. Also use risers on ones I'm going to put a "real" scope on. Don't think the Barska is going to need one; it's perfect for me now.
