I really want a 14.5" mid length with a pinned flash hider. I've been looking at spikes and bcm. I'm on the fence. I really want a pinned vortex, but bcm wont do that. Their website explicitly states they will only pin the brakes and flash hiders listed.

That leaves me with trying to find a spikes in that setup. If anyone knows another brand I should be considering, let me know.

If you really want a Vortex then just get the barrel and have the Vortex pinned locally or ship to ADCO.

Also Noveske makes a 14.5 middy with a pinned Vortex.

RifleGear has a good rep. They use DD barrels and such.

14.5 RifleGear (http://www.riflegear.com/p-876-riflegear-145-midlength-chf-complete-upper.aspx)

Spikes 14.5 Dynacomp AimSurplus (http://www.aimsurplus.com/product.aspx?item=XSTU5050MLSDC)

Unfortunately the Spikes Vortex 14.5 (http://www.aimsurplus.com/product.aspx?item=XSTU5050MLS&name=Spikes+Tactical+14.5%22+Lightweight+5.56%2f.223+Upper+Receiver&groupid=55) is out of stock.

I didn't know rifle gear made their own stuff. The noveske is close to 800, a little out of my price range for an upper.

Spikes Elite upper w/14.5 pinned Dynacomp... With the Failzero it's an excellent shooter! Couldn't be happier with this purchase. Might add an Omega rail or Centurion... Someday. Right now, I'm pretty happy.

GAH! So you're the reason I can't get one. Haha I really like that upper. I hope they get some in soon, because I really like that setup.

literally I have pondering this for a while..finally made up my mind, went to AIM website for millionth time, and go figure..sold out..i called them and they gave me a ballpark timeframe of 1-2 months before next batch arrives..

I'm also monitoring this thread for back up suggestions..more for who's got best deal on DD, and other quality brands...
