If you look at any of the F-1 Firearms social media accounts you’ll see that at least a few times a day someone asks “Can I buy just the upper?”. Kind of reminds me of how everyone asks a different manufacture if they can buy “just the rail”. Up until now, the answer has always been no because the F-1 upper and lower are contoured to flow perfectly together and the upper would fit but wouldn’t look right with a standard mil spec lower. Well it appears that enough of you guys asked for “just the upper” because F-1 Firearms announced today they are going to be releasing a new Universal billet upper with the same cutouts and design as their popular BDR-15 3G upper.
So far all I know is that these will be available as Stripped Uppers and Complete Uppers and will be available for purchase later this month. No idea on pricing just yet but will update the article as soon as I know. AND…before anyone starts screaming about how much debris will get into the upper, etc., we all already know there is a possibility of that. While I wouldn’t suggest this upper for anyone in a combat situation (which most of you are not), these do work very well with a suppressor as it slowly releases the gas out the sides and there are videos of it being dragged through the dirt and mud and functioning flawlessly after.
