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.

With help from the folks at Nodak Spud, this precise match was achieved by starting with 7075 T6 aluminum forgings that already have the proper profile built in. In machining to final dimensions, all points where other parts attach are finished 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, in Matte Gray to match the finish on the original, early-pattern M16 rifles or Matte Black to match modern, BRN-16A1 lower receiver (sold separately).

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.
