300 Blackout Upper
Originally developed as a do-it-all whisper cartridge for U.S. Special Operations, .300 AAC Blackout has quickly become a popular choice in caliber among AR-15 builders and owners. Serving you with our commitment to quality and accuracy, we’re excited to offer top-of-the-line 300 BLK uppers for the AR platform.
Upper Configurations and Features
Each of our rifle and pistol uppers ship ready to fire out of the box. All .300 BLK uppers we sell come with top-tier and mil-spec specifications and features:
- Barrels made exclusively from 4150 CMV or 416R stainless
- Quality parkerized or Melonite (nitride) protective coatings
- All upper receivers made from forged (7075-T6) aluminum
- Standard Picatinny/M1913 rail system for optics and sights
- Includes HPT/MPI-tested M16 bolt carrier group w/ handle
- Configured with pistol gas systems to ensure subsonic reliability
300 Blackout & 5.56 Platform Compatibility
Already own an AR-15 chambered in 5.56 or .223? You can swap your complete upper assembly for one chambered in 300 BLK and hit the range! Your existing lower receiver and buffer assembly, bolt carrier group, and even your standard magazines are compatible with 300 BLK cartridges, no modification required. If you elect to build your new rifle or pistol using an 80% lower receiver, rest assured the fabrication process and assembly processes are the same: Both platforms utilize the same specifications and lower parts, and thus require the same jig and tooling to cut and drill the receiver blank.
