CUSTOM AR-15 UPPER RECEIVERS and Complete upper assemblies
Our Stage 1 upper receivers start from a 7075-T6 Aluminum Cerra Forge part. This is a standard mil-spec flat top M4 upper receiver with engraved T markings. We machine the Pic rail to take some weight out of the upper and add our company logo. Then we hardcoat anodize and PTFE coat the upper to aid bolt carrier to upper receiver break in. We add V Seven parts to complete the assembly for a tidy 8.5 ounces. We use the V Seven Titanium barrel nut, the V Seven Aluminum port door and hinge and the V Seven Aluminum forward assist. High quailty V Seven parts are used in all of our builds, they make great parts.
SPORTER- Complete upper assemblies are available now from ICGW. We use our Stage 1 upper receiver with V Seven parts and add a medium latch BCM charging handle along with a lightweight Spikes BCG. Then we add our 12 3/8" Sporter handguard, a Faxon 14.5" Gunner barrel, an SLR .625" adjustable Titanium Gas block and Spikes Melonite mid length gas tube. Last we pin and weld a Primary Weapons System FSC556 Mod 2 muzzle brake to the Faxon barrel for a legal 16" barrel length. The complete upper weighs just over 3 lbs, very light, maneuverable and accurate.
COMPETITION- We also have a Competition version that uses either our 15" Competition Handguard with a 16" barrel (18" if you require) or our 13.5" Competition Handgaurd with a 14.5" barrel with pinned and welded comp. We use our lightweight hardcoated full PTFE coated upper receiver, a Cryptic Coatings Lightweight BCG in Mystic Black and a Next Level Ambi charge handle. The Bolts are purchased in different sizes so we can custom fit them to your barrel chamber.
