16" 6. SPC Stainless Heavy Contour Barrel AR15 Rifle Upper Assembly with 15" Rail and A2 Flash Hider

The 6.8mm SPC was designed to address the deficiencies of the ballistics of the 556 NATO cartridge currently in service with the armed forces of all NATO-aligned countries.  The cartridge was the result of the Enhanced Rifle Cartridge Program. The 6.8 SPC was initially developed by Master Sergeant Steve Holland and Chris Murray, a United States Army Marksmanship Unit gunsmith, to offer superior downrange lethality over the 5.56 NATO/.223 Remington in an M16-pattern service rifle with minimal loss of magazine capacity and a negligible increase in recoil. The goal was to create a cartridge that would bridge the gap between 5.56 mm and 7.62mm.

Specifications:

  • 16" 6.8 SPC 416R Stainless Heavy Contour Barrel with 1x8 Twist and 5/8x24 Threads. The chamber of this barrel conforms to SAAMI specs for 6.8 SPC. The barrel is machined for a 0.136" bolt face depth AKA a Type 2 6.8SPC bolt. The bolt carrier group available for purchase with this upper assembly has a Type 2 bolt matched to this barrel.
  • Mil-Spec Upper Receiver forged from 7075 T6 aluminum with forward assist and dust cover assembly installed. Hard coat anodized MIL-STD 8625 Type 3 Class 2.

    My first great Christmas and a long time

    My wife and I have not had a decent Christmas for quite a few years and this is the first Christmas we both had a awesome Christmas.partly because of the economy and also because of the guests we were able to get each other. Converse customer service and delivery time was excellent. Thank you for making this year great.

    6.8 spc Deer Tracks uppper

    Recently received the AR15part's 6.8 upper and was very happy with the the fit and finish. Perfect! My grandson's lover the deer tracks! I had AR15part's added a Nitride BCG and extended charging handle. All parts were top notch and installed when received. I finally got to fit in on one of my lowers, and ran a mag thru it. The first round jammed as I charged the bolt, but re-seated bullets in the mag, and cycled bolt again. Loaded fine. Ran the full mag without issues. Just got to place the proper optic on it, and get ready for deer hunting this fall. I have a Stag model 7 in 6.8 which I dearly love, but was looking for a shorter, lighter version as a alternative. Only thing I regret is that AR15part.com gives you a 10% off code on your first order... I forgot to include my code! Bummer! So if you make an order, don't forget!

    Happy with it

    Still trying to get a lower receiver and ammunition for it. But overall everything looks good and I'm excited to take it for a spin.

    6.8 SPC upper

    Fit & function just like I expected, no end play, mated up perfectly. For the money there isn’t another website that can beat this one.

    Build review

    I put together a 6.8 build using parts primarily from this seller, everything but the lower. I can't stress strongly enough how impressed I am with this build. I finally got a chance to range-test it and it functioned flawlessly. It looks good and shoots even better than it looks. I highly recommend this seller to anyone looking to build an AR in any caliber.

    New build.

    I'm still building this rifle so I haven't had the opportunity to range test it yet. I'm very impressed with the quality and workmanship of the 6.8 upper. If the quality of the BCG is as good as the upper I will be very pleased with this build. Shipping was very fast.
