"I couldn't believe how quickly it showed up, but the paint on the Yankee Hill handguard is one of several flaws. I'm not building a show rifle, but for this price, I expected a little better. I'm not sure if this reflects YHM's workmasnship or JSE's."

"I was very impressed with the looks and finish when the upper arrived.After a good cleaning, I fired about 20 rounds at 100 yards with very good patterns.I plan on buying one more from CTD once they become available.You will not be disappointed with this upper."

"After unboxing and giving it a once over, it attached to my lower with very little play. Pulled the bore snake through and gave it a squirt of oil and went to the range. Took about 30 rounds to get it dialed in and it has been a dream ever since. Highly recommend this upper if you want some pizzazz without the high dollars attached to it:-)"

"Well packaged and shipped really quickly. My gunsmith was impressed with the aesthetics of the handguard. I really like the entire build. No flaws on the stainless steel barrel which is polished sweetly. Receiver is solid and bolt cycles cleanly. My only add-ons were a Vortex Strikefire optic and a Magpul angled foregrip Gen. 2 and I was in break-in mode as per JSE Surplus' instrustions. It was labor intensive and slow but every round fired and ejected flawlessly using American Eagle ammo 55gr out of Magpul Gen. 2 mags and my Bushmaster lower. My only upgrade will be a better charging handle but that's no rush. Now that I am happy with JSE Surplus with this platform then I am confident in purchasing possibly other caliber uppers from them like 300 BLK."

"I am very glad that I bought one of these uppers before they sold out again. I am very pleased with the quality of the parts used in the building of this upper along with the quality of JSE's assembly. What a beautiful combination and the handguard feels great. It has been 15yrs since I have owned an AR15. My previous ones were a Colt SP1 and a Bushmaster and I do not remember them feeling this solid and heavy. I installed this upper on a Semper Fidelis lower and the fit is excellent. I am a huge fan of YHM parts I added a was a railed gas block with a bayonet lug (because I could). I will be upgrading the charging handle to a BCM mod4 very soon, otherwise this is a perfect upper rightout of the box. Cycles properly and shoots straight. I love this upper and couldn't be happier and of course CTD service was excellent and fast. I will definitely be buying from CTD again along with more JSE uppers."

"This upper fit to my Adcore Defense lower with absolutely no play or movement between the upper and lower. I just received it, so I have yet to break in the barrel, but the fit and finish are flawless."

"I just got my upper today and the very first thing I noticed is unlike what is pictured is that the Free Float rail with Todd Jarrets signature is not there. If it is not suppose to be then it should not be pictured. 2nd thing is that I would have expected the barrel to have been oiled slightly and the inside of the barrel to also be slightly oiled. Neither. The shipping was fast though."

"After reading numerous reviews on this upper, I was excited to receive this item. Moments after it was in my hands I cleaned, oiled and installed it on my trusted lower. I cycled the BCG to the rear, the BGC stuck all the way back getting caught up in the buffer tube. I called JSE and informed them of the issue. Through inspection I found out that when I removed the rear pin, attaching the upper to the lower, that the upper dropped just a little bit, bringing the upper and lower closer together. I was speaking with the CSR from JSE and she stated that would definitely be the problem and offered to being the unit back and replace it with one that was working properly. I received the return authorization code and address. They stated that I had to pay for shipping! I quickly responded stating that I was not going to pay for shipping, AGAIN! No response. How dare they expect the buyer to pay for shipping twice on an item that should have shown up working correctly in the first place. I then contacted CTD and informed them of the issue. The immediately issued a pre-paid RTA and shipping label. A fe things to note: 1. JSE were very pleasant to deal with. 2. CTD was Johnny on the spot with resolving my issue. 3. The unit looked great and if it had functioned properly, I'd be shooting tomorrow. 4. The lower that I test fit it on has been run on 3 different uppers prior to this one with zero issues. I hope JSE figures out what their issues are and corrects them quickly because it appears they have a loyal following. All the best to all parties involved!"

"I've yet to take this upper to the range, but my initial impressions are very good. I've since added a Magpul AFG2 and Magpul MBUS sights. The upper seems very well constructed and for the money I believe this was the best I could get."

"I bought this to go with the first lower I have assembled myself. It was a great value. Matched up nice to my Spikes lower. Fit and Finish are great. I finally got it to the range yesterday and could not have been happier with the results. I love the hand guard on this one and have gotten multiple complements already. For the money you can't beat it. I would buy another one."

"Totally happy with this upper. Was originally going to build something similar from parts but it was less expensive to buy this complete upper. M4 stainless barrel is great as is YMH free float forearm. Shoots really well and paired with a Vortex site I am shooting out the bullseye at 100 yards. Great looking as well, gets a lot of comments on the range.Hey CTD--how about offering some options (build your own) style with this upper...would have been perfect if I could have chosen some options like better charging handle, nickel bolt carrier group, and FTD forearm.But all-in-all a great value, perhaps the best on the web for an upper with stainless barrel and free float forearm.Thanks CTD!"

"Looks much nicer than the picture. I put this on an Anderson Lower (cast, cheap). Fit real nice and snug and the finish is identical. Here is some research in advance for ya:-Phantom A1 4 port flash hider.-9.29\" length x 2.43 \"width railTook it to the range and broke it in today. Shot real nice, didn't take but 5 or 6 shots to dial in. Felt a little dumb taking and cleaning it after every shot. Got some weird looks like something was wrong with it but it shot clean and accurate. The rail doesn't have the Todd Jarrett signature which I think is nice. It's got YHM stamped all over the flash hider and the beginning of the rail. Dissipates heat pretty well. No complaints. Love it."
