Description

With so much “tacti-cool” stuff hitting the black rifle market, there’s nothing wrong with taking a step back and building a truly classic shooter. This Classic AR-15 Build Kit features an old school A2-style upper, complete with an A2 front sight post, A2-style “bird cage” flash hider, and traditional forged M4 flattop upper.

Inside, you’re getting a mil-spec lower parts kit and a chrome-lined M16 bolt carrier group with staked gas key and M4 feed ramps. The 4150 CMV barrel promises MOA accuracy with bomb-proof reliability. A classic M4, six-position buttstock and buffer are included.

What’s Included

This kit is not a firearm. It includes an assembled upper receiver, bolt carrier group, lower parts kit, and buffer assembly with buttstock. It does not include the component to make a firearm: A stripped lower receiver. Pair this rifle kit with an AR-15 80% lower receiver and AR-15 jig to fabricate a receiver, sold separately.

Here's the beginner's guide to 80% lowers.
