    Does the upper receiver lack the case deflector?

    How are the bores?

    Is the barrel the original A1 contour?

    Are these sans bolt?

    The term "upper" refers to a barreled action with all parts installed, bolt and bolt carrier optional. So if it lacks a barrel and handguards, it's not an upper but simply an upper receiver.

    And there are A1 upper receivers that have the case deflector. Most A1 uppers available new have the case deflector. This is important for those who want a late "Vietnam period" rifle.

    Right now a brand new bare A1 "slickside" upper receiver (does not have forward assist) is $99.95, and a new parts kit (sights, dust door, etc.) is $22.95, total $122.90 for brand new. $27 more will get the A2 version. This is from Fulton Armory.

    A friend was just selling used non-Colt A1 *complete* uppers, sans bolt, for $150. This included a barrel with a good bore, triangular handguards, etc. for $150, and less for 3 or more.

    These prices are not for Colt uppers. Colts are more desirable and command higher prices.

    My inquiry was not out of line for someone blowing out non-Colt uppers to make money quickly.
