    Default AR15 upper

    Does anyone know of any good deals on complete AR uppers in .223?

    Thanks

    AR15 Lowers & Uppers-D S Arms


    JSE Surplus


    if it was me wanting to build a high end ar-15 on low buck budget. i would get that $275 nitrited upper from DSA. or maybe that 1-7" twist in chrome lined. then i would order the $100 m-16 bolt& carrier and $15 charging handle form Evil black rifle girls.

    but if you want a regular upper with no chrome the JSE upper is tough to beat. not as good as those with the mis-matched gas tubes. but pretty good prices non the less.

    a few years ago--we had JSE selling some uppers with the mis-matched gas tubes and ports. they looked a little off but i hear they ran fine. seems like they were about $270 or so with bolt carrier charging handle-and all IIRC. hell of a deal for some one to build a inexpensive shooter--

    i have bought tons of stuff from JSE and EBR--they are sort of the same outfit. they ship super quick too. here is a link to EBR girls

    i got this very nice m-16 bolt carrier group from them last year. very nice and the same one that is sold for $150 in other shops. chrome lined gas key and properly staked to boot.

    Boiiiing!!!!!

    I think that's the sound I heard as the front takedown detent pin took off for places unknown.

    I was so proud of myself that I had only a couple insignificant things happen on this build that I started to get cocky when assembling the lower and then there goes the pin. Luckily the spring was easy to find, not so with the detent pin. I didn't have another detent pin, so I took a 3/32" drill bit, cut the shank, ground the ends, and put the rest of the lower together, being a bit more careful this time. I'll post some finished pictures sometime this weekend

    Good thing this happened, as it reaffirmed the fact of being more careful when working with these small springs.

    i have had a few of those little flea sized pins go into orbit myself.

    i made a spare from the left over steel stem from a 1/8th pop-rivet.

    you can make a little tool that makes installing that little pin a snap. but every time i build a new lower that little tool i made is AWOL and i end up putting in the pin the old fashioned way!

    I hoped you ordered a 5.56mm upper, by far more versatile than .223.

    Before I started using a 1/4" clevis pin to install the take down detent I would install it with the lower in a ziplock bag. That way you don't loose the detent should it go flying.

    i use alum stem pop-rivit, if they get wet they will not rust up inside. i have made a few of them.

    note: the alum pop-rivits with the alum stems are hard to find. when i find them i usually buy a small box of them. i think the last ones i found were at tractor supply co. i need to find some more as i cannot find the ones i had now. if some one finds them let us know where.
