This is a sneak peek at the new CMT Tactical UPUR-1 billet AR15 upper receiver. I was fortunate enough to get my hands on one a bit early and man are these nice. Super clean lines, great finish. I have all the parts to finish off this upper and plan on doing it this weekend. These uppers will be available for purchase starting Monday. For now, due to just getting this upper last night, I took some quick shots with my iPhone that actually turned out not too bad for what they are. I’ll get this upper built and take some real pics of it to share with you on Monday.
The Cross Machine Tool Ultra Precision Upper Receiver Part# UPUR-1 is the perfect Mate to your UHP-15 lower receiver or would also be a great match with any Mil-Spec lower. The UPUR-1 is machined from Billet 7075 T6 Aluminum unlike the more commonly used 6061. Using the 7075 T6 aluminum gives the UP-UR a 65% increase in strength & rigidity over 6061 aluminum receivers. The UPUR-1 is machined on a 5 Axis machining Center to reduce the number of operations/setups required to complete. This machining process allows the highest possible accuracy to be obtained over the traditional 3 or 4 Axis machining method. The UPUR-1 is designed for increased function, performance & to provide an advanced modern appearance & feel to the AR15 platform weapon system.

Expect the new CMT Tactical UPUR-1 billet AR15 upper receiver to go on sale Monday (7-15-2013) with an MSRP of just $209.95. I’ve heard through the grapevine that Rainier Arms will be selling the initial run of lowers at a special introductory price so you’ll definitely want to keep tabs on the CMT Tactical “Manufacturer” Page at RainierArms.com. And if you really want to be prepared, Rainier Arms has the CMT Tactical UHP-15 billet lower in-stock at the before mentioned link.
Another great way to keep tabs on the new upper and other new CMT Tactical products is by liking the CMT Tactical Facebook Page and clicking “Get Notifications” under the “LIKE” button drop down menu. They will be giving away at least one of these billet uppers to one of their fans this month. Have a great weekend guys.
