(5 reviews)
Current Stock:

Never content to settle on the mil-spec, we manufactured enhancements directly into the receiver:

  1. The receiver is trued by Faxon at the factory
  2. We hone the inside bore to smooth out the action of the bolt carrier group. *
  3. Hollow-out the shell deflector to reduce weight and look great
  4. Manually engraved T-marks on the upper. Will stay visible after any coating
  5. Hold tighter tolerance on the lugs for a better fit 
  6. Ships Unassembled

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.

    Such a sweet upper

    I was pleasantly surprised with the attention to detail with this upper. The extra steps taken during the manufacturing process are immediately evident. The skeletonized brass deflector is a nice touch too.

    Better than milspec tolerances. Trued and nitrided for smooth slick bcg contact. Will purchase another.

    Forged upper

    I matched this upper with a match grade 20” Flame Fluted barrel. A nice snug fit. Using a Midwest industry guard, barrel nut torxed to spec. Getting very good grouping with initial setup @ 50 yards. I haven’t had the opportunity to go to 200 yet.

    The only issue i had is that it was hard to pass gas tube(requiredlight tapping).

    Really cleanly polished, spec out, and light weight. The nicest receiver I have put on a barrel.
