Recce Pro - 13.7" .223 Wylde Complete Upper Receiver - Pinned Gas Block

The Recce Pro is the first in our higher end Pro Lineup. 13.7" is about the best Do-It-All length and the Rosco Purebred Barrel is one of the finest on the market. Combine that with a NiB Toolcraft BCG, Pinned Gas Block, Lapped and Bedded Action, And then you have what I believe to be the best Performing upper at this price tier and the next one up. 


*Also available with a P&W SOLGW Nox Flash Hider (16.1" overall length) for an additional $100*

The Build Process:


Every upper is assembled by me, one at a time. Every piece is hand fit, barrels to the uppers, gas blocks to the barrels, gas tubes to the blocks, handguards, roll pins. If something doesn't fit properly and securely, I don't put it together. What that means is that you get an upper where every component fits together like a glove for a rock solid build that won't fall apart or tear itself asunder during hard use.


On top of that we use the proper threadlocker on the appropriate parts. We use blue loctite on the handguard screws and then torque them to 60 IN-LBS. On the gas block screws we torque them to 25 IN-LBS then use a red high temp threadlocker (#272) to ensure the gas block never shifts. #272 threadlocker holds its strength up to 450 degrees VS. the 300 degrees of standard loctite. 


We don't use the high temp threadlocker on the flash hider or the barrel nut. We can if you ask us to, I don't have a problem with that. But, it is not needed. 50 FT-lbs on the barrel nut is more than enough and the flash hider is timed with a crush washer and can be easily swapped out for your favorite device if you so desire.
