Installing a dust cover onto your AR's upper receiver can be a pain. If you're starting with just parts, you need to install the C-clamp onto the rod without launching it across the room and never seeing it again. Then you thread the rod through the first side of the cover, then the spring, then the other side of the cover, making sure you've aligned the ends of the spring in the right places. But it gets worse. You then have to twist one end of the spring around with some needle-nosed pliers and hold it in place while you negotiate getting the other end of the rod into the other lug, all without letting go of the end of the spring with your pliers until you're done and everything's in place. Whew!

Well screw all that. Give yourself a break with the UTG® Quick Install Dust Cover for your .223 or 5.56mm sized AR. This dust cover is made from impact and heat resistant polymer, so it won't get dinged up or warped. It installs in seconds and takes literally all the hassle out of the process. You slide one end of the rod into place, hold the spring in position (you don't even need pliers), and then simply depress the spring-loaded other end, align it with the lug on the other end, and let go. Then you let go of your spring, and you're done. See below for more info.


  • Matte Black Impact and Heat Resistant Polymer Construction with Steel Spring-loaded Detent
  • Patented Tool-free Design Quickly Installs Without Having to Remove The Handguard Prior
  • Compatible with all .223/5.56 Mil-spec. and Most Billet Upper Receivers
