I want to get a MK12 and I'm not really interested in having an exact copy but I do want a quality rifle. I can lay hands on a DPMS for $50 and shipping less than a High Caliber upper.

What are your thoughts?

Well there's the $50 difference, plus I have to build the lower for the High Caliber and have to have it shipped in...

Are you talking about the mini sass? All the reviews on it seem to be good. Im looking into this as well. I think Im going to try to find as much stuff used as possible and then use the dpms mini sass barrel to complete the upper.

Pay the extra 50$ and buy a lower and build it up, even if you have to save a little longer, itll be worth it.

Just thought that I would revive this to say that by the end of next week I should have my MK12 up and running. I went with the HC base model. I can't wait!

I just assembled the lower and it's sitting here all lonely...

My .02 is to get what you want the first time. You'll be happier in the end...BTW, i love the MK12. I have an RRA 24" Varmint and am trying to go the MK12/M4 route now..

The difference is more like 500 though.
