The AR57 Upper Receiver Assembly converts an AR-15 to shoot 5.7x28 FN ammunition. The unique upper design loads on top and accepts FN PS90 magazine (not included) and ejects downward through the AR-15 magwell. This upper is precision machined from a one piece aluminum forging. The integrated picatinny-style quad rail system allows attachment of various accessories. A parkerized chrome alloy bolt and full-floated barrel ensure reliability and accuracy. The teflon-infused hard coat anodized aluminum upper and rails gaurantee durability for years of shooting enjoyment. The updated charging handle and magazine release of the Generation 2 allows for easy manipulation of the controls. New and improved lightening features, such as the fluted barrel, shave a pound of this receiver when compared to the Generation 1 upper assemblies. The top feed and bottom eject also help to make this upper fully functional for right or left handed users. A carbine style (3 1/2 inch) buffer is included, rifle length stocks require the AR57-A2 buffer (6 inch), which is sold seperately.
