    Default MR556 Upper versus MR556 Upper receiver kit

    I have a lonely MR556 lower. I am looking for an upper for it. As I recall, the complete uppers were going for around $2000-2100 new. Now I am seeing places selling an HK "upper receiver kit". Says it has everything included for like $1600- 1700. From what I can see of the stock photos, the upper in the kits is not marked with the Columbus, GA or MR556 A1 markings. Looks like it just says HK on the left side of the receiver. This is being sold by lots of sellers and reputable places

    Does anyone know what this is? Why is it a kit, and how is it different than the uppers that have been sold all along...ie the price difference?

    Thanks for the help

    There is no difference, the "kit" means it comes with the HK heavy buffer and spring which they recommend for proper function. $1600 may be because they are trying to sell off the old stock with the old quad rails or it may just be the going price now. Good deal nonetheless.

    Well . . . we were discussing uppers, but no apologies necessary!!!
    I should have acquired an MR556A1 during the rebate--- I like the rail better--- I suppose that I will wait and get the MR556A5 in 4Q/2017.

    I must have missed the A5 being available? What's the story on 2017?
