Brownells 75th Anniversary - A Shooting Heritage

Converts Any AR-15 To Shoot 5.7 x 28mm

Complete upper receiver lets you shoot economical, gentle-recoiling 5.7 x 28mm ammunition in your AR. The innovative, low-profile 50-round magazine (sold separately) is positioned conveniently above the barrel for optimum weight distribution. Spent cases are ejected straight down through the magwell to avoid striking other shooters and for easy range cleanup. Simple, reliable blowback operation with a free-sliding bolt that’s the only moving part means there’s no gas system to foul or clog with carbon. Ultra-rigid, monolithic receiver/handguard rail is machined from a single block of aluminum, with nearly 3 feet of Picatinny rail space for mounting optics and other accessories. Plenty of vent holes in the handguard ensure maximum cooling during sustained fire. Free-floating, 4140 chrome-moly steel barrel is 16" long, with a unique, multi-port flash suppressor. Comes with a correct-weight recoil buffer for use with 5.7 x 28mm ammo; fits in the receiver extension of an M4-style stock. AR57 LEM Gen 2 features several improvements over the standard AR57. The Gen 2 is one pound lighter thanks to a fluted barrel. The new model also features an updated charging handle, ambidextrous magazine release and an extended rear rail. The extended rear rail allows for the mounting of a wider variety of optics.
