Our fully 3D machined Upper Receiver is the prefect compliment to our 80% lower receiver or most other forged / billet lowers. Our uppers are precision CNC-machined from billet 7075 aluminum at our facility. Billet receivers provide a significantly higher level of quality due to the stability of the raw material.
Forged uppers are ideally suited to inexpensively producing products in high volume, but the drawback is poor aesthetic consistency, unpredictable fit/finish and material instability - Say it with us: Billet is better.
- T6 Heat-Treated 7075 Billet Aluminum - Raw finish (As machined)

- Billet quality in a forged form-factor - No added bulk!
- Strategic lightening cuts add style and reduce weight
- Fully 3D machined from aerospace material
- 100% USA Made
- Cerakote available (Black)
*As machined is silver.
We STRONGLY recommend applying a wear resistant coating (Cerakote or similar) to as-machined uppers prior to use; otherwise, rapid wear will occur.
Compliance with all federal and local laws is YOUR responsibility.
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.
This is one of the best uppers I have ever seen and likely the lightest you can find, making it exceptional for an ultralight build. Machining is amazing and the price is a great value for what you get. I plan to buy another for my next build.
Super lightweight upper reciever. Weight of the one I received was spot on with the listed weight of 5.4 oz. Maching is very well done. One feature that some people might not like is not having the ability to install a dust cover. Personally it makes no difference to me if I can add a dust cover or not. This is a 5 star rated product for in my opinion as a stand alone product but it did not match up to the Venom Defense 80% lower. Other than that it’s a great upper.
The machining and finish (black) on my upper was outstanding. Everything fit, and it weighed in at only 155 grams-- a pleasant surprise. I will definitely be buying another one of these uppers for use in a future lightweight build.
It was well worth the wait. The machining is exceptional. Everything fits well with no surprises. I’m looking forward to many years of service from this upper. It’s a great product, from a great small business, at a great price.
