Like I said, I'm trying to find a complete upper, I don't feel like paying for a parts kit, and then a barrel, and then an upper, and then a front sight, and then a gas tube, and then paying for my gun shop to put it together for me, if I can find a complete upper instead.

if you Google "a2 complete upper", you get plenty of results. IE:

I'm looking for an A1, apparently they're a bit harder to find, I guess not many people are making new ones, and most of them are sold out with waiting lists.

Any ideas on the easiest way to find a high quality M16A1-style complete upper for a reasonable price? I just want to buy a complete upper that has a built-in carrying handle/rear site, a 20" barrel, the fixed front sight and the triangular handguard.
 
I want an AR-15 that looks like one from the Vietnam area, but I truly couldn't give a rat's ass about making it 100% accurate, so I want to buy a complete upper and then slap it on some random stripped lower, once I find one that has roll marks I like. I don't care about finding one that perfectly matches exactly what they had back in the day, down to the tiniest little detail, I just want an upper that looks the part, with some random lower that has the fixed stock.
 
So anybody got any ideas where I can find that upper? Don't really care whether it's original surplus parts, or new remakes, I just want them in good condition if they're surplus.

You could just get an A2 upper an throw some surplus handguards and a 3-prong flash hider on it. The rear sight will be different since the A2 incorporated windage adjustments, but everything else would more or less look the part.

 

 

Yes, I could, if I could find the handguards. I was asking for links or places to look, for people who have them in stock.

 

And I was wanting a complete upper because I don't want to deal with having to pay my LGS to build it for me, since I don't have the tools to build an upper, or a place to put the tools, which means I can't build it myself. And if I'm going to buy a complete upper, I'd rather buy one with the handguards I already want, rather than the A2 handguards and then have those kicking around in my spares box.

How, also I shot my first 9mm, first 45.acp and first 45 long colt yesterday. Good times

 

How? Same way you get better with a pistol or a shotgun, you practice, and then you practice some more, and after you're done practicing, you practice even more.
