REWARD: $100 Finders fee for finding me this upper

Hi Gents-

I'm on the hunt for one of the most in-demand uppers out there at the moment.

Noveske 8.2in Lo-Pro 300 Blackout. The quad rail 8.2, not the NSR rail.

These things are incredibly hard to find at the moment, and rumor has it that they have been discontinued by Noveske. Now I've been gassing for one of these things for months, maybe even over a year, but I had other priorities (M16 for instance).

Anyway, I'm offering $100 to anyone who finds me one that I end up purchasing. Please note, I'm looking for one of these for my own use. I'm not looking to flip it or sell it, nor make a profit in any way. Its likely that if you find one at a decent rate, you could probably buy it and flip it for a few hundred dollar profit.

What I'm hoping is that one of you will be somewhere and see one on a wall or see it come in to the shop and will be able to notify me. As I say, it's kinda like finding a unicorn at the moment.

Thanks in advance to you all. In addition to the $100, the person who helps me out will have my personal invitation to come and shoot my M16 or any other weapon I have to their hearts content. I'll even supply a bunch of ammo.

Below is an image of the upper I'm looking for.

Aww c'mon guys. I recognize it's not necessary, but I also realize that any of you could buy it and make $500+ flipping it. I'm just trying to provide a little incentive to make looking and passing it along worth your while.

I appreciate all the help though

I know nothing about them, so I'd probably overpay by $500 and undersell by $500.

Damn dude. A guy at work just sold a 300 blackout 2 weeks ago. Might not have been the exact one you're looking for but still strangely coincidental.

There's plenty blackout uppers around...he's just searching for the upper that if bigfoot and a unicorn had a child it would be almost as rare as this upper is to find new or lightly used.

Pretty much

Seriously, difficult to find guys. I could score any number of 300 blk uppers, including a plethora of 9 inch AAC ones. But this one is tough

Ah hell, ok. I thought just a blackout in general was a tough find. Didn't realize it was a special variant. Good luck with your search! I'll keep an eye out.

Yeah, you can get uppers. That's not the issue. This particular upper, not to mention ammunition, are the real tough things. It's like Arthur looking for the Holy Grail...

UPDATE. Thanks to be-doubleyou, I ordered an 8/8.2 inch Noveske VIS upper. The upper I bought can be found here.

It's not precisely what I've been looking for, but its pretty close. I wish it came with the factory bcg and ch, but such is life when you're looking for something pretty rare.

I'm still on the lookout for the other one. I've read up on this upper I ordered. It's monolithic, which is awesome, but rumor has it that its extremely heavy as a result. If that's the case, I might sell this one for whatever I have in it if I can find the other.

So keep your eyes open please.

Thanks again be-doubleyou
