Things You Can Do With An AR 15 Upper Receiver

Are you looking to customize your Barbie gun? If so, you’ll probably want to order yourself a catalog from gunsmithing supply house Brownells. Located in Montezuma, Iowa, Brownells is a family run business that has been around for over seventy years. With the growing popularity of the modern sporting rifle, Brownells has adapted to the progression of rifle evolution, and keeps many parts in stock for AR 15s.

Firstly, you should know that some parts, such as lower receivers, require the buyer to possess a Federal Firearms License. This doesn’t apply to the upper receivers, so you may order one from Brownells without having the FFL. They stock companies like Colt, DPMS, Bushmaster, Armalite, Beaver Creek, Saber Defence, and many more. With all their choices you are sure to find something to suit your needs. Some uppers are designed for competition. Others are flattop—well they don’t call it the Barbie gun for nuthin’ now, do they? Discerning shooters have varying tastes; everything works for somebody, so what works for one person might not work for another. If you want to feel like a kid in a candy shop, or a DIY guru with a bunch of sink taps to choose from at Home Depot, than get yourself a Brownells catalog because you’ll have more choice than you can shake a stick at when it comes to AR 15 upper receivers. Midway USA is another gunsmithing house where you can go to buy an AR 15 for sale.

One cool things upper receivers can do for you is to convert your .223 or 5.56 caliber into a 9mm. When it comes to home defense, some prefer this caliber so it does not over penetrate walls in the home, though they like to use the AR 15 frame. Sometimes, if you get a good deal, 9mm can be cheaper to buy in bulk, though not always. You really have to keep those eyes peeled. But, when you do get a good deal on 9mm, it can save you a lot of money. On the other hand, the AR 15 upper receivers chambered for 9mm can be pricey, around $500, and that’s about half of what you’ll pay buying a brand new AR at your local sporting goods or gun shop. Perhaps a .22 caliber conversion kit would suit that need better for those who wish to plink. These usually cost around $175.
