Are you interested in assembling your AR-15 from a build kit? If that’s the case, you’ve come to the right site.
Best Upper Parts Kit: Aero Precision Upper Kit
The Aero Precision Upper Parts package contains most of the parts used to match your AR-15’s upper receiver. Each product is built to mil-spec specifications and is made of robust 7075-T6 aluminum making it long-lasting and reliable.
Why Build Your Lightweight AR 15 Upper?
Furthermore, designing an AR-15 provides you with thorough knowledge of how the AR-15 operates inside and out. You will become intimately acquainted with the arms and all of the individual components that go into its construction.
It follows the same rationale as to why you can create a survival kit from individual survival products rather than purchasing a pre-packaged survival kit: you become entirely comfortable with the components of your kit, which ensures it will fit you well. The same can be said for your AR-15, which isn’t as complex as you would have expected.
In other words, though there will be obstacles along the way, assembling your AR-15 should not be as challenging as you might have expected. Building your AR-15 from parts kits can be a satisfying and enjoyable experience.
Apart from the simplicity of modification, there are several other benefits of buying an AR-15. But perhaps the explanation is that the AR-15 is one of the most powerful firearms in the market. It can be used for almost everything you use a rifle for, from long-range hunting to shooting to military applications to home defense, and it can do so in an ergonomic and very easy-to-shoot platform.
What Pieces Do You Need For AR 15 Upper Parts?
Here are the individual parts you’ll need to assemble your AR-15:
Upper and lower receivers
Each AR-15 is divided into two parts: the upper receiver and the lower receiver. These are the rifle’s core elements, which house the other pieces and springs.
When assembling your AR-15 from a build kit or parts kit, you can purchase ‘receiver sets,’ which are upper and lower receivers available as a single unit. The extra parts you will mount would require you to purchase an upper parts kit and a lower parts kit.
When aiming or gripping the AR-15, your shooting arm grasps onto the grip. However, most parts kits do not have a grip, so you may need to buy one separately. The grip you use must be both secure and ergonomic, so you can enjoy shooting with your AR-15.
Even when it comes to grip, make sure to review the legal standards. Some states and counties, such as California, prohibit pistol grips but permit featureless AR-15 grips.
The barrel is another essential component of the AR-15 that is not typically included in an upper (or lower) parts pack. As a result, it is another component that you will need to purchase separately; luckily, we also have a purchasing guide for AR-15 barrels.
The most common barrel lengths are:
- Rifle (20 inches),
- Mid-length (18 inches),
- A carbine (16 inches), and
- Handgun (16 inches) (and pistols for anything under 16 inches).
The longer your muzzle, the longer and more cumbersome your rifle will be, but it will also have higher bullet velocity and hence better accuracy at longer distances. On average, every inch applied to your barrel will increase the velocity of your rounds by approximately 200 FPS (feet per second).
The AR-15 has two main types of stocks: collapsible and fixed stock. Fixed stocks are more robust and sturdier, making them a better option for long-range precision firing. They are, however, less adaptable and are not the ideal option for self-defense scenarios in confined spaces or under adverse circumstances. Folding stocks will reduce the appearance of the AR-15, making it a safer option for most close-quarters tactical applications or transport.
The charging handle on an AR-15 pushes the bolt, striker, and hammer into the ready position, allowing the weapon to chamber and fire a bullet. If you are left-handed, you would need either a left-handed charging handle or an ambidextrous charging handle. If you’re looking for suitable left-handed AR-15 uppers, we have a guide for you.
