Stripped Uppers In A2 & Flattop Styles; Genuine Factory Parts

Build your next custom AR-15 with an original Colt factory upper fully finished and ready for installation. Made from a high-quality aluminum alloy forging machined to precise tolerances for correct fit on Colt lowers and clones. Hardcoat anodized for added surface strength, abrasion resistance, and corrosion protection, with a uniform, matte black finish that matches other factory components and easily accepts alternate finishes. These are “stripped” receivers (except as noted below), so you can select the bolt assembly, carrier, gas key, and other components to suit your specific needs. All models designed to accept spring-loaded ejection port covers. Carry Handle – Classic, carry handle configuration of U.S. military M16A2 rifles. Models for .223/5.56 chamberings come with forward assist housing and shell deflector behind the ejection port, and are pre-cut for A2-style adjustable rear sight assembly (not included). 9mm upper does not have shell deflector or provisions for forward assist; accepts original A1-type rear sight. Flattop for.223/5.56 or 9mm rifles and carbines has topside Picatinny accessory rail for mounting optics and red dot sights. White alphanumeric position markers on rail slots aid in removal and reinstallation of sights without loss of zero. Available stripped or with forward assist and ejection port cover installed.  9mm version does not include forward assist. Not drilled for gas tube.
