Long Range AR15 Complete Upper

I'm looking for an out of the box ar15 complete upper in 5.56/223 to shoot long range. I don't really have a budget. I want a longer barrel, between 18-22". Most of my shooting will be done shorter than 800yds. I'm looking for a quality upper. Out of the box, not looking to build something custom yet.


Thanks in advance, Devin.

That would be "medium"

What I meant by longer was, longer than the 16" on the standard m16/ ar15.

One more vote for Whiteoak. I've got a Whiteoak barrel on my 6.8 and love it, kind of a different creature, but very accurate. Whiteoak came highly recommended by some of the competition shooters, so I gave em a try. Everything they make is high quality. The stupidly long wait for any good AR tube right now is the only problem. Good luck on your search. Let us know what you find.

20" LaRue also shoots lights out.

Re: Long Range AR15 Complete Upper

Seems like were after about the same critter. However I'm building my AR-15 instead of spending all that money for a mil spec weapon. I've currently got a WOA Wilson Match barrel on back order. WOA uses their own varmint chamber for some of their .223's. Its close to the Wylde chamber but with much less free bore. So If your wanting to shoot the lights and not in a big hurry you might look them up.

Here's what I've ordered. With the optional fluting and black DuraCoat options.
White Oak Armament | AR15 Barrels | 20 inch .223 Varmint Barrel | 1 in 8 Twist with fitted Gas Manifold
