    I have an opportunity to buy a like new CMMG 16 inch M4 (A3 version) upper. This is a brand I don't know much about. Anyone have any experience with CMMG, good or bad? Thanks.

    CMMG is a low to middle of the road manufacturer.
    What's the sale price?

    $325. Includes BCG and charging handle. I have a DPMS rifle, but it is an A2. I was looking for a flat top when I got offered the CMMG. If I buy it, I was just going to switch out the uppers.

    I've spoken with some people who a lot more "in the know" about this particular manufacturer than I am. They told me that CMMG's quality control has gone steadily downhill the past four or five years, for what that's worth.

    Just like Bushmaster,.......there are better options for more money.
    But the basic upper is solid, I would replace the bolt carrier group.
