The DPMS Southpaw Sportical AR-15 Upper Receiver Assembly comes fully assembled and ready to install on any standard small pin, mil-spec lower receiver. The Sportical is constructed of Extruded 7029 T6 Aircraft Grade Aluminum and is of the "Slickside" variety, with a sleek profile devoid of protrusions through the elimination of the conventional AR-15 forward assist, case deflector, and dust cover. The result is a clean, minimalist appearance that is both fully functional as well as lightweight. The Southpaw Sportical provides an ideal foundation for left handed shooter, and a perfect platform for customization. All of these attributes and components combined make a solid, reliable upper, without adding anything extraneous that would increase both the weight and price of the upper.
The Southpaw Sportical features a 16" Light Contour "Pencil" Barrel for reduced weight, a true 5.56x45mm NATO chamber for use with either commercial or mil-spec ammunition, and employs the versatile 1 in 9" rifling twist rate capable of stabilizing a wide selection of different bullet weights. The upper comes equipped with heat resistant GlacierGuard polymer handguards, single rail gas block, charging handle, complete bolt & carrier assembly, and an A2 flash hider. Aluminum parts are hard coat anodized to mil-spec, steel parts are manganese phosphate treated (parkerized) matte black.
