*Blemished* AR-15 Slick-Side Billet Upper Receiver - ANODIZED 


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 6.0oz

    Blemished slick side billet upper

    Posted by James Boss on Nov 11th 2022

    Arrived quickly. The mounting lugs had some material removed so as to fit in the lower. One would never know it's "blemished". Everything fit well and my new 9mm carbine works great. Very happy with my purchase.

    Darn good value, works great!

    I'm so happy with this upper that I bought a second one, to give the slickside treatment to another of my ARs. This blem upper was by far the best value I could find. Yet, despite its low price, it seems very solid and well-made. I have this installed on a fairly unorthodox AR setup and it works fine. The charging handle channel, however, is a *little* bit tight. There was a lot of resistance to start out with on a pretty standard CH and Palmetto BCG installed. I'm not sure if this is the upper's fault, but it's worth noting. Seems like that will clear up over time, though. It doesn't change my happiness with the upper, and standard CLP makes all the parts slide together (and cycle) just fine. Fitment with other AR parts - seems 100%. A lot of other manufacturer's parts seem to warn against using their products with a billet upper... I have had no issues. I've got it assembled with a Rise CH, BCM bolt carrier, Anderson forged lower, a basic Spike's melonite gas tube, Ballistic Advantage 300BLK barrel, and a UTG Pro barrel nut/freefloat handguard. Everything seems to fit just fine. A small note on brass ejection - casings come back at about 4:30-5:00 position. I deliberately sought out a slickside upper without a deflector, though I do wonder if (just for preference) I might want my next upper to have at least a small shell deflector to send the casings toward the 3:00 position or forward. Can't fault this upper, though - I specifically sought out a slickside upper - no deflector or forward assist, and this delivered. Works pretty darn well for the money spent, and the blem is no bother either.

    Have not attached barrel and tested however the workmanship makes me confident it will be just fine. Great looking slick side upper.

    Blem upper

    Posted by James Skeels on Sep 2nd 2022

    So the blemish is so insignificant its not funny. Only thing I dont like is the charging handle are has the port up top (which I didn't see in the pics) and now I'm gonna have to go and buy a charging handle that engraved so I can rock the port with style lol. This upper is absolutely one of the best uppers I've bought. All ready bought amd received a raw upper and plan on buying more, as long as no one narks on me to the wife lol. Awesome awesome awesome.
