Faxon Firearms Forged AR Upper Receiver - Enhanced - Stripped
- Usually ships within 2 business days.
One can typically manufacture upper receivers from forgings right, light, or pretty. Fortunately, Faxon does not settle. We set out to accomplish all three and once started, realized we can make them better than "Mil-Spec". Of course, we kept the important bits:
- Forged 7075-T6 Aluminum
- Type III Hard Coat Anodizing
- Compatible with All "Mil-Spec" Lower Receivers.
Never content to settle on the mil-spec, we manufactured enhancements directly into the receiver:
- The receiver is trued (blueprinted) by Faxon at the factory
- We hone the inside bore to smooth out the action of the bolt carrier group. *
- Hollow-out the shell deflector to reduce weight and look great
- Manually engraved T-marks on the upper. Will stay visible after any coating
- Hold tighter tolerance on the lugs for a better fit**
Faxon Firearms Forged Upper Receivers are available stripped and complete with forward assist and ejection port cover.
- Material: 7075-T6 Forged Aluminum
- Finish: Type III Hard Coat Anodizing
- Caliber Compatibility: All intermediate cartridges. .458 and large bore rounds may not function in the intermediate upper.
- Weight: .43 Lbs (6.88 Ounces)
*Note - One may see some machine marks in the receiver - this is normal. Military Type III hard coat anodizing is not smooth naturally and it will take about 200 rounds for the BCG and receiver to break in for optimal feel. We encourage the use of nitride BCG's like our own for the smoothest action.
**While Faxon holds tighter tolerances, mil-spec does allow variation of holes in lower receivers. There may be some wobble left between receivers due to variances in lower manufacturing.

All I can say is perfect. I initially purchase from a third party and the inside polishing where the BCG slides was terrible! I then noticed that the Faxon logo was not on the receiver so I sent it back. I then purchased from Fax and the upper receiver was perfect, and the inside where the BCG slides was a perfect mirror finish. This upper is worth every penny! Actually, I would expect in the future these to cost more. The finish is a flat black and was very consistent and even. It also matched up to my lower nicely. Will always buy direct in the future. I would also like to say that I had a lot of questions and Faxon CS fielded each one and in a timely manner. Thank you Faxon, everything about your company is TRUE! TOP NOTCH!
Excellent product. Fit & finish were impeccable. The cutouts in the brass deflector are designed to cut weight, but they also add a great custom look to your gun. Definitely worth the difference in the price over ever other carbon copied upper receiver.
This is a well made upper and is worth the price imo, it is well finished and considering it is factory trued, makes a good investment. I plan to use this again for future builds.
