As a brand, are they any good?
No. There are few brands I actively steer people away from but they are one. Their QC and manufacturing as a whole is abysmal.

Well, was about to order a RRA upper until I foound out there is up to a 90 wait for one to be available to ship.

Am now considering a Bear Creek upper as they have some in stock. As a brand, are they any good? I like the fact the upper, in which I am interested, has a 1:8 twist rate.

In addition, some info about an M-LOK rail as opposed to a Picatinny rail would be appreciated. Will they accept the same accessories or does each require accessories (like sights) that are compatible with that specific type of rail?

Searching for available uppers at this point in time is a bit trying.
M-Lok accepts m1913 rail sections as an accessory.

Benefit of an M-Lok is lighter weight...you’re not adding material for a quad rail that goes unused, and believe me, most of that space goes unused.

SOCOM moved to M-Lok rails years ago.

Rock River makes great stuff. I have an AR, and their two-stage trigger is awesome. I took the Swat entry model upper off and use it with my long range upper, because that trigger is so good.

Brownells has some colt uppers in stock. Probably double a PSA upper though.

PSA has a CHF upper in stock, just as good premium brands.
