Item Number: URPA1SSURBLK
Manufacturer: Multiple Mfg

The AR-15 / M16 Slickside Upper Receiver precisely mirrors the contours of the original, early AR-15 upper receiver. Perfect for your next "Retro" or reproduction build, our upper has the following features specific to the original Slickside:

  • Correct early-style carry handle contours
  • No shell deflector
  • No forward assist
  • A1-pattern rear sight housing
  • Weight: 0.4750 Lbs.
  • 7075 T6 aluminum forgings

Finished to current mil-spec dimensions, so current-production AR-15 components will fit perfectly. However, note that the AR-15 / M16 Slickside Upper Receiver is so period-accurate it DOES NOT have the M4-type feed ramps found on most current-production AR-15 flattop uppers.

After machining, each AR-15 / M16 Slickside receiver then gets a durable hardcoat anodized finish.

Our AR-15 / M16 Slickside upper is the proper receiver for "Retro-Repros" of the following rifles:

  • Original AR-15
  • Model 601
  • Model 602
  • Model 607 Carbine
  • Model 608 Carbine
  • Model 610 "XM177" Carbine
  • Model 630 GAU-5A Carbine
  • Model 649 GAU-5A/A Carbine

Good Quality And Great For Those Retro Builds
Todd Dissinger (Jacksonville, AL) 4/25/2018 6:29 PM
With the current retro boom, finding A1 receivers with the forward assist has become a pain. So when I had the itch to make a 653 carbine and discovered that A1 receivers could not be had, my project became a 654 build. I had never owned an AR WITHOUT the FA so this was new territory. But once I built and started using it, I realized maybe Stoner was right. The FA was NOT needed in 95% of cases. If you can push forward on the groove of the bolt carrier and the bolt won't seat, you need to get that cartridge out of there. I now have TWO of these uppers and they are just as good as anything being made right now. No problems putting parts in. It is a winner. Just pick your color, black or gray.
