As promised, this is the followup article to the one I shared on Saturday. Today is the release date for the CMT Tactical UPUR-1 billet AR15 upper receiver. The first run of uppers will be sold exclusively through Rainier Arms at a special introductory price and they are expected to sell very quick. I just wanted to let you know where you can buy your very own CMT Tactical AR15 Billet Upper Receiver and show you what I did with mine. If you want to check out my build below, click on the images for a high-res version. Otherwise head on over to RainierArms.com to purchase you own upper now.
As you can see I went for a pretty lightweight KISS style rifle. I don’t really like to just haphazardly throw a build together. That’s one thing I always tell people who are building a rifle. Think through and figure out what you want your rifle to be. I have plenty of “overweight” rifles so from the start I planned on keeping this one fairly light. This build came in at only 6 lbs. 12 oz. which for a billet upper and lower set is pretty good. To do that I utilized some lightweight accessories which includes a Fortis Manufacturing REV 12″ rail, Magpul K grip and MBUS, Seekins Precision T-1 mount and B5 Systems SOPMOD Bravo stock and QD End Plate. Other parts that aren’t necessarily lightweight but were used are the Smith Enterprise Vortex flash hider, CIV Tactical 16″ M4 barrel and BCG, Impact Weapons Handstop, ALG Defense ACT Trigger, Battle Arms Development BAD-ASS selector, BCM Low Profile Gas Block and a Receiver Extension Kit from Damage Industries.
