300 BLACKOUT UPPERS (AR15)
300 Blackout AR15 Upper Assembly / 300 Blackout Complete Upper Receiver for AR15
The 300 Blackout (300 AAC Blackout) was developed by the US Advanced Armament Corp. as an upgrade to the 5.56 NATO that would be comparable to the 7.62x39 AK-47 round. Specifically, the 300 Blackout is designed to operate both supersonic with a long barrel, and subsonic in a short barrel configuration with an optional suppressor. The result is a 30 caliber bullet between 78 and 125 grain and a casing filled with fast burning powder (no muzzle flash) that fits 30 rounds in a standard 223/556 STANAG magazine. The 300 Blackout on the AR15 platform operates effectively with barrel lengths between 4.5" and 20", nearly silently with subsonic ammunition and a suppressor. Because the same standard 223/556 AR15 lower, bolt carrier and magazines can be used, it is a drop in upgrade for a standard AR15.
