Mil-spec, forged, stripped upper receivers for your custom AR build.
Ready to custom-build your first, or next upper? Grab one of our affordable, mil-spec stripped receivers. We work hard to keep prices low on every unit without sacrificing quality. Each stripped upper is manufactured in the USA and properly forged, cut, stamped and and threaded for easy assembly. We've also got the necessary components to install your new barrel.
M4 clones are cool, but the new low-profile gas block design is where you'll enjoy real performance. Coupled with a lightweight free-float handguard (which includes your barrel nut!), piecing together your upper receiver is easy and requires just basic gunsmithing tools. Our available gas blocks work with virtually any handguard or rail on the market, and each includes the necessary pins for seating it on your barrel.

Our stripped uppers work with any standard AR-type lower receiver (that means any retail-bought stripped lower, or fabricated 80% lower) configured for the typical 5.56/.223 profile. That also means our upper receivers work with any builds chambered in 9mm, 300 Blackout, .224, 6.5 Grendel, and more.
Assembling your upper requires a torque wrench, barrel nut wrench or adapter, and some roll pin punches with the appropriate gunsmithing hammer. We've got all the tools required for completing your assembly, available right here.
Your custom upper awaits.
