Rifle Upper Assemblies
Barreled uppers for custom AR-15 builds.
Regardless of platform, each of our AR-15 rifle upper assemblies is meticulously crafted and configured to be mil-spec and compatible with all components for its caliber. Whether piecing together a custom AR-15 in 5.56/.223, 300 Blackout, or 6.5 Grendel, you can be confident behind the trigger knowing you're getting a unit built for dependability and accuracy.
Why Our AR-15 Rifle Uppers?
All rifle uppers are assembled and test-fired to ensure reliability before shipping. Unless selecting an A2-style upper with classic FSB, all uppers utilize a low-profile gas block to ensure compatibility with any free-float handguard. To purchase all components required for assembling a working rifle, pair your upper with a lower parts kit assembly (includes mil-spec 80% lower) and jig.

Completing Your Build: Federal and State Laws
AR-15 uppers and parts kits are not considered firearms under federal law. The ATF does not regulate their sale, transfer, or ownership like a firearm purchase, so your upper assembly can ship directly to your front door in most cases. Some states have banned the sale of upper assemblies, receivers, 80% lowers, and certain firearm parts, or have otherwise restricted the sale and ownership of products we sell. So, be sure to check your local and state laws. We can’t ship our products to certain states. Please check our Shipping & Return Policy before placing an order (see restrictions).
Your build awaits you.
