Building an AR Pattern Rifle: An Interlude of Quietly Mumbled Profanity

Jun 6, 2016 | 0 comments

The upper receiver, as those familiar with the platform may concur, defines an AR’s purpose. The intent of the rifle can be determined from the upper and so when choosing one to place atop our now assembled lowers we must be very clear on our intent.

First some great news, uppers are not considered by the BATFE to be firearms as they cannot shoot on their own and do not bear the serial number of the firearm. This means you can order every single part and have it mailed right to your doorstep should you so choose.
