Glocks are nice and dependable, but do nothing for me. I have two M&Ps and LOVE them. In fact I traded a more expensive Kahr for my second M&P for concealed carry.

Other reasons, they are very affordable, they are American made so regardless of bans or embargos in other countries you can get service and parts. The customer service is amazing, lifetime warranty and they pay for overnight shipping both ways. Pretty sweet.

What is about the average weight for an upper rec? I called POF and the guy weighed an upper rec 16" with 12" rail system including the site, and it came to 7.25lbs. Is this about average or is it pretty heavy for an upper rec?

I'm into them... don't own any yet. I've been floating around gun forums for the past year or two trying to figure out what I want. I have yet to fully make up my mind though. Probably set on an xd45c. I also really like the gsg5's, its just a lot of money for a .22.

On the handgun thing I'm a big glock fan, I own several different models in 9mm. They're not the prettiest, or the most comfortable, or the most accurate, so it's not for everyone. But in my experience (and many others), it's one of the best guns for a functional defense item, and the accuracy is more than good enough for any real-world scenario. They're a very simple design with fewer parts than most semi's, insanely reliable, always goes bang when you pull the trigger.

Here's a glock abuse test for your amusement. I've never seen any test of any other handgun on the market come close to what the glock lives through:

Its a matter of personal preference. When I went shooting for the first time, I shot a G19 first, then switched over to an xd45. The XD simply felt better in my hand. I know a lot of other people who swear by glocks though.

So, I just got a price quote of $1749 for a upper lwrc A2. Is this about right for a lwrc brand?
I'm looking into getting a lwrc upper.

Thats on the high side, I paid a little under $1500 for mine IIRC from NW Tactical in Ohio. That was a year ago though so that may be the going price now. Where you buying from?

What brand is a IIRC? Here's the link of the company i'm thinking of buying from:Welcome to U.S. Firearms Academy - On Target with Great Prices, Selection and Service

Although he doesn't have it on his website, he said he has the lwrc a2 available. I was thinking that is pretty pricey. So I may go with a POF which is about $1375. But he told me that there were some issues with the pof. He said he sold one to his friend and he had troubles with it. So, not sure what I want to buy now. I'm trying to google to find other companies that could get it cheaper if possible but so far i only found a couple of places.

I went to NW and the upper a2 is $1644. A little cheaper

Nothing against the LWRC guns, I understand they are running well throughout some high round count trials, but if it we’re my money I would buy a Colt or LMT... in either case my preference would be for a conventional gas gun.

I like Colt and LMT both, but my next upper (still being planned out, probably months away as all my hobby money is going into the Z lately) is going to be a Noveske. This one is going to be an SBR set up for mostly suppressed use, probably this 10.5 model since it comes with an M4-2000 flash-hider (which is the mount for the suppressor I want to use with it), and Noveske's "switchblock" for controlling the gas (basically, lets you cut the gas flow back a bit when suppressed, or cut it completely for manual cycling). I'm still kinda waffling between 10.5 and 12.5 barrel lengths though. The 12.5 gives a little bit more velocity, which extends the useful range of the gun for effective 5.56 terminal ballistics, but the 10.5 obviously has the compactness advantage.
