The MK3 is our 3rd custom upper in a 14.5" variant. These are Do-It-All uppers built to be extremely accurate, reliable, and affordable. First rebarrel is still free and every component has a lifetime warranty.


Each upper ships with a unique checklist noting the ejection pattern with brass cased ammunition, function, lock back on empty, and any buffer/spring recommendations I may have.
