I don’t know about you but I love this idea. CMMG has just introduced their new Ambidextrous Modular Upper Receiver for AR-15’s. Now you can completely change your upper receiver without any gunsmithing required at all. Right now they have eight different panels. You can mix and match them to create the upper receiver that meets your needs.
Check out the information and pictures below that CMMG posted at AR15.com.
As a part of the all new Revolution series of firearms, we are proud to introduce our patent pending ambidextrous modular upper receiver.
The advantage of the Revolution upper is the ability to change panels on both left and right sides to customize the firearms to suit the shooters needs.
Panel configurations include:
- Right hand panel with dust cover, shell deflector and forward assist.
- Right hand panel with dust cover and shell deflector, no forward assist.
- Right hand panel, smooth
- Right hand panel with forward assist
- Left hand panel with dust cover, shell deflector and forward assist.
- Left hand panel with dust cover and shell deflector, no forward assist.
- Left hand panel, smooth
- Left hand panel with forward assist
Many combinations are possible by mixing and matching panels. CMMG Revolution rifles will be available with forward assist notches on both sides of the carrier. Right hand shooters who tap the forward assist prior to shooting, now have the option to have the forward assist on the non ejection port side. This makes for a faster reload since the shooter right hand does not need to leave the pistol grip. This can be reversed for lefties.
Shooters needs vary and change. By moving panels around, any configuration is possible within minutes.
Our target price will be $135 with two panels. We will also be offering a full set of panels that include the ones listed above and a couple others. These will be available in whatever the color of the month happens to be.
In the next few weeks we will be introducing our new Revolution hand guard, ambi and lower. We are very excited about this project. We believe this will set a new standard and versatility and affordability.
Uppers are extruded 7075 aluminum.
