R-25 308 to 243

I have a Remington R-25 in 308 and was thinking I would like to have a 243 upper to go with it. Can't seem to find one. I found a 243 barrel but would rather have a compleat upper so I could just switch it out. I don't have the money to spend on one with taxes coming up but would like to get one this spring. DPMS didn't have them who else would have them?

    I have "heard" that the "black" gun mfgrs all make each one a little different so parts MAY not be interchangeable.

    I would keep looking for a R25 243 upper. Or maybe another 308 and get a 243 barrel for it.

    I guess I should have mentioned that DPMS builds the R25 parts for Remington, or did.

    That is the first place I looked. They are only showing a barrel on their web site.
