New Product: AR-15 Pistol Upper

We are offering our new “Short Spear” Ar-15 11.5 Pistol Upper packages for $615. All NFA rules apply.


We have been testing the AR-Pistol system over the last few months and have determined it is a very underrated system. We have engaged steel targets to 300 meters with no more difficulty than using a standard 16 inch barreled AR-15 rifle. There is the benefit of not having to do the SBR paper work! We combined the pistol upper with a pistol marked lower, and we were in business! We used a cheek weld on the buffer tube to great success. We also added a “cane” type rubber cap to the end of the buffer tube. The ATF says that this addition is OK. The rubber cap protects the end of the buffer tube and makes using the “shouldering the buffer tube” (tucked in tight) type firing position very comfortable.

The Basic Upper features a Daniel Defense 11.5 inch hammer forged govt. profile barrel, chambered in 5.56 NATO, with a 1:7 twist, F-marked front sight tower, Carbine length gas system, and 1/2-28 threaded muzzle.  The barrel is manufactured from ordnance-grade 4150 chrome moly vanadium alloy steel for exceptional strength, has a chrome lined bore and chamber, and is HP-MP tested to ensure there are no internal flaws in the metal.  Built on an M4 ramped mil-spec flat top receiver with plastic handguards and an A2 flash hider.
