This Noveske Light Recce Lo-Pro complete AR-15 Upper Assembly is chambered in 5.56x45mm NATO and comes fully assembled and ready to drop onto any standard AR-15 lower receiver. It comes equipped with one of Noveske's legendary hammer forged barrels for outstanding accuracy. This barrel is turned down to a medium contour for faster handling, and is outfitted with a 1 in 7" twist rifling, M4 feed ramps, 1/2"-28 muzzle threads and a non-glare, manganese phosphate finish. Additional features include a Noveske-marked Ambidextrous charging handle, a pinned low profile gas block, a Noveske Marked Q Cherry Bomb Flash Hider, shot-peened, MP-tested bolt housed within a Mil-Spec bolt carrier. The upper also comes with a mid-length gas system.
This Light Recce Lo-Pro upper includes a 13.5" long Noveske NSR-13.5 handguard with the proprietary KeyMod rail system and, with an outside diameter of only 1.48" (without accessories attached), it 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 like most competing modular forearm designs.
Installation of AR-15 upper assemblies with certain features including, but not limited to: flash hiders, bayonet lugs, and threaded muzzles may violate state and/or local laws.
