AR-15 Slick-Side Billet Upper Receiver

Simple. Clean. Affordable. 

Our Slick-Side upper omits the traditional forward assist, shell deflector and dust cover for a clean and simple addition to any AR-15 build. Our Slick-Side upper is precisely machined from premium, billet 6061 aluminum to ensure the tightest tolerances, in many cases, exceeding mil-spec requirements. Compatible with both forged and billet lower receivers as well as most types of fore-ends and quad rails. Our Slick-Side is not intended as an exact match to our 6061 80% lower; they are compatible, though, and frequently purchased together. 

Weight 6.1oz

Please note - while many of our customers enjoy the look and simplicity of the "as machined" aluminum, this finish is intended to be completed by the end user; therefore, machining marks may be visible. Applying a wear resistant coating (Cerakote or similar) to as-machined uppers prior to use achieves final fitment and provides a barrier to resist rapid wear that will otherwise occur. 

Compliance with all federal and local laws is YOUR responsibility.

Please allow 1-2 weeks for Cerakote

    Perfect machining as usual, very good tolerances once cerakoted, by far the best upper for the money

    This upper not only looks but fits absolutely amazing! It is the right kind of tight and solid as a rock. I will include Venom Defense on any future builds I do. I’m extremely happy to have an awesome company like them in my neck of the woods and will definitely be a return customer!
