This Noveske Light Shorty Basic 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, an F-marked fixed front sight base/gas block, M4-style polymer handguard and a shot-peened, MP-tested bolt housed within a Mil-Spec bolt carrier. The patented Noveske KX3 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. All Noveske 5.56mm uppers are test fired with Black Hills ammunition at their facility before shipment.
