Description Technical Specs
 
This Advanced Armament Corp. (AAC) AR-15 Upper Receiver Assembly in 5.56 NATO Blackout is a pin-on, ready-to-shoot top end for use with any standard AR-15 lower receiver. The Mil-Spec 4150 chrome moly vanadium steel barrel comes equipped with 1 in 7" twist rifling, M4 feed ramps, a low profile steel gas block, and is finished inside and out with a protective black nitride treatment for superior durability and corrosion resistance. The muzzle is threaded with a 5/8"-24 pitch for easy installation of a silencer, and is topped off with an effective AAC 51T Blackout flash hider.

The upper features a forged M4-Style flat-top receiver onto which a Knight's Armament free floating URX 3.1 Quad Rail System is rigidly attached. The heat-treated, full auto bolt carrier is finished in a slick Nickel Boron coating, and comes equipped with a properly-staked gas key and Carpenter 158 steel bolt assembly.

This 16" 5.56 NATO AAC upper utilizes the versatile carbine length gas system, a good choice for this cartridge if various weights and types of ammunition are to be used. Most subsonic and supersonic loads, fired from either a suppressed or unsuppressed gun, are compatible with this configuration. However, some subsonic ammunition may not always cycle reliably under adverse conditions or in a severely fouled firearm without a sound suppressor attached to provide extra backpressure.

What is a Salt Bath Nitride-Treated Barrel?
More commonly referred to as nitriding, it's a rifle or upper subjected to a salt bath ferritic nitrocarburizing surface conversion process. The AAC barrel upper is made from 4150 CMV and specially processed to have up to 60% more life than a chrome-lined barrel and without the potential loss in accuracy from uneven coating. This processing also results in extreme corrosion resistance. Unlike chrome lining, where the chrome is built up on the surface, nitriding converts the surface without the risk of dimensional build up.
