This COMPLETE PARTS KIT (less stripped lower receiver) has the following standard features:
M4 Feed Ramp barrel extension
T-Marked forged upper receiver

11595E (SAE 4150) Barrel steel
Manganese Phosphate finish barrel
This 5.56mm caliber barrel is 20" long, threaded the standard 1/2 x 28 tpi, and has an A2 flash hider with the correct crush washer, and a correctly sized gas port for reliable function. The barrel is machined from chrome-moly, high vanadium steel and hardened to a U.S. government Mil-spec of Rc 26-32. The barrel, and all external steel parts, are manganese phosphate finished IAW 184.108.40.206 of Mil-STD-171, the U. S. government's recommended protective finish for steel. This finish not only looks great, it affords complete corrosion protection. These barrels are of heavy-weight (.950 diameter under the handguards, .750 under the front sight base) dimension their full length which alleviates barrel whip and enhances accuracy in semi auto fire and helps dissipate heat. The barrel is button rifled with 6 grooves, right hand, 1 / 7" twist. The 1/7” twist is best for bullets 62 gr. and heavier.
The barrel is mounted on a FORGED A3 upper receiver with built in Mil-spec M1913 Picatinny accessory rail with the correct rail numbers engraved, made from certified 7075T6511forgings, hardcoat anodized IAW Mil Spec A8625, Type III, Class II, black per No. 37038, Table IX with nickel acetate seal, as per the Mil-spec. The upper features a forward assist and hinged ejection port cover.
This kit features a tubular, hardcoat anodized, machined aircraft aluminum handguard. This handguard completely free floats the barrel for increased accuracy and is knurled for a sure grip. It has a machined aluminum 4 postition gas block with M1913 Picatinny rails for easy mounting of accessories. This setup is great for optics equipped rifles because the gas block does not obstruct the sight picture as a front sight base would.
The buttstock is a 6 position telescoping stock designed for a stable cheek weld in any position. It features a paddle release, rubber butt pad and is of standard A2 length when fully extended. It also comes STANDARD with a Double sling hook locking plate.
All semi auto lower receiver parts are INCLUDED as well as semi auto bolt, carrier, and charging handle. The upper is COMPLETELY ASSEMBLED. Each and every part to the gun is included EXCEPT the stripped lower receiver! (A complete firearm is pictured, the lower receiver, sights, vertical grips, etc. and magazine, even though shown in the picture, are NOT included).
