I have a complete S&W M&P 15, an Extar EP9 pistol (6") and I bought a complete 300AAC pistol (10.5") upper & lower from Palmetto State Armory and just put it together. I really enjoy shooting all of them.
I recently rec’d a match grade 20" 223 WYLDE barrel from a good friend. He is the editor of a major gun mag and the barrel has the mag name laser engraved. At some point I may put together a dedicated lower for this but for now I want to save some money and put together an upper that I will just swap on/off of my MP15 lower. I found many places that sell complete uppers but as mentioned I have a unique barrel that I’d like to use.
So I was hoping you guys would have suggestions on what components to use and where to find good deals?
Thanks in advance!

I would suggest a free float hand guard for starters. A stripped Aero upper is pretty good quality without the steep price (about $100). I would suggest a muzzle break over a compensator or flash hider. A good BCG with MPI and HPT for durability. Perhaps even a nickel boron. I would lap the upper before installation as well. That should start you off nice.
