This AR9 upper receiver assembly comes ready to attach to any Mil-Spec lower receiver. It is built around a 16 inch, 4150 chrome moly barrel and has a black nitride finish. The upper receiver is a forged M4 flat top upper, allowing you to easily attach rifle scopes and red dot sights to the picatinny rail.
Outfitted with a 15″ M-LOK Rail that contains generously sized M-LOK cuts, this upper assembly allows for maximum air circulation around the barrel for faster cooling and keeps the handguard from getting hot to the touch. The rail also features a full-length picatinny top rail that sits flush with the upper receiver and has anti-rotation tabs to keep it locked in place. This partial upper assembly comes with a standard A2 flash hider that effectively suppresses muzzle flash and protects the 1/2×36 barrel threads if you are planning on adding a muzzle break in the future.

➲ Upper Receiver
The foundation of all good ARs is built upon a dependable upper receiver. CBC upper receivers offer best-in-class quality while providing you years of dependable service.

You want your AR built upon a solid platform - this receiver gives you the confidence that your AR-15 will function when it counts most.
➲ A2 Flash Hider
The muzzle device is designed to perform a specific task, like suppress flash intensity or reduce felt recoil. This A2 Flash Hider is machined from quality steel and finished with an exceptionally corrosion resistant salt bath nitride for a lifetime of service. It provides effective flash suppression that preserves the shooter’s night vision by disrupting the muzzle flash when firing in low light conditions. While its closed bottom with top and side ports offers reduced dust signature when shooting from the prone position while additionally acting as a compensator.
The barrel is one of the few components that directly affect the accuracy and weight of your build. Designed for corrosion resistance, this barrel will not let you down. This barrel is machined from 4150 Chrome Moly Steel, heat treated to RC 28-32 hardness, and properly stress relieved. This barrel has a nitride finish for increased strength and durability. It is chambered 9mm chamber, with a 1:10 twist rate. This is the perfect barrel for an AR9 build, keeping weight to an absolute minimum, while still offering a significant ballistic advantage.
