AR-15 replacement firing pin manufactured by Alexander Arms®. AISI 8740 alloy steel in austempered spring condition. Precision machined with correct transition radii to eliminate breakage. Thin, dense chrome coating minimizes hydrogen embrittlement. Trilobial main shank maintains alignment of the cam pin. Provides reduced contact surface that produces easy sliding of the firing pin within the channel. Provides clearance for dirt and carbon that results in more reliable function. Proven to operate at -65 Celsius in correctly lubricated weapons. Fluting is not cut all the way to the back of the firing pin, which keeps debris from entering the channel from the rear.

Upper vents assist in rapid cooling of barrels and are spaced to reduce mirage. Low-profile, 2-inch diameter, free-floated, and includes a 7075 aluminum barrel nut. This item has corrosion-resistant, threaded inserts spaced to attach our 3-inch Picatinny rail sections per user requirements. Attaches to threaded inserts via Allen head screws. Overall length is approximately 12.5 inches. Weight including barrel nut is 0.81 pounds; barrel nut weight is 0.16 pounds. The handguard is compatible with any and all standard AR-15 upper receivers and is not suitable for piston-driven systems with components that run under the handguard or weapons using alternative methods of handguard attachment.

Alexander Arms® AR-15 billet upper receiver kit. Beefy, squared upper resists flexing with usage of long barrels. This product includes only an upper receiver, a chromed carrier with gas key installed, and a side-charging handle. This upper receiver is designed for use with the 6.5 Grendel cartridge, but is also 5.56/.223 compatible. It may be compatible with other cartridges, but this is not tested or guaranteed. The upper receiver does not feature extended feed ramps. This product is not for use with .50 Beowulf® or similarly large cartridges. Because of very limited available supplies, production lead times for this product may be uncontrollably long.
