Noveske AR-15 Pistol Light Shorty Lo-Pro A3 Upper Receiver Assembly 5.56x45mm NATO 10.5" Barrel
This Noveske Light Shorty Lo-Pro Complete AR-15 Upper Assembly is chambered in 5.56x45mm NATO and comes fully assembled and ready to drop onto any legally configured pistol or registered SBR lower receiver. It comes equipped with a double chrome lined, 10.5" cold hammer forged barrel featuring 1 in 7" twist rifling, M4 feed ramps, 1/2"-28 muzzle threads, and a matte black parkerized finish. Additional features include a Noveske-marked BCM Gunfighter charging handle, a pinned low profile gas block and a shot-peened, MP-tested bolt housed within a Mil-Spec bolt carrier. The patented Noveske KX5 Flash Suppressor installed at the muzzle does more than simply reduce the enlarged flash signature produced by the shortened 10.5" barrel, it also provides increased back pressure to the carbine length gas system to help ensure consistent and reliable cycling.
The Light Shorty Lo-Pro upper includes a 9" long Noveske NSR-9 handguard with the proprietary KeyMod rail system and, with an outside diameter of only 1.48" (without accessories attached), is one of the slimmest, lightest, customizable handguards available for the AR-15 platform. The NSR free floats the barrel for greater accuracy potential and provides a full length, continuous top rail for the addition of optics and/or accessories (additional add-on rail sections sold separately). KeyMod accessories are quick and easy to install along the handguard's length, and don't require that the NSR be removed from the upper in order to attach or detach them. All KeyMod system accessories use captured backing plates that are inserted into an unused key-slot hole and then tightened into place via an allen wrench, eliminating the tedious and frustrating procedure of fishing separate backer plates down the interior of a handguard and securing them with loose fasteners as required by most competing modular forearm designs.
