Davidson Defense "Vertex" Enhanced Pistol Caliber AR-15 Billet Upper Receiver
(Compatible with 9mm, 10mm, .45 ACP and .40 S&W)
Upper Receivers mount and house the barrel, handguard, and gas system in an AR-15 or LR-308/AR-10. Custom upper receivers vary from Side Chargers, and Skeletonized uppers, to Rigidity Reinforced or 'Lite' receivers, where certain features such as the forward assist and brass deflector are removed to streamline the design. This also applies to most Pistol Caliber Carbine upper receivers with special ejection door cuts made specific for 9mm or .45ACP.
About this Upper: This is a Davidson Defense "Vertex" Pistol Caliber AR-15 Billet Upper Receiver. The Vertex Upper Is Machined Out Of A Single Block Of Billet Aluminum In Order To Create Its Intricate Lines And Angles And Finished With A Hard Coat Black Anodization. This Was Done To Save Weight As Well Improve Functionality And Reliability By Focusing On A Simple Design That Has Fewer Moving Parts And Therefore Fewer Parts That Can Break, All The While Not Compromising On Strength And Durability. This Upper Will Fit On A Traditional Mil-spec Lower Receiver Or A Pistol Caliber Specific Lower Receiver.
Material: Billet 7075-T6 Aluminum - 7075-T6 Aluminum is a high-strength alloy metal with great ductility, toughness, and resistance against fatigue. 7075-T6 was standardized for use in Aerospace equipment and aircraft. The Suffix T6 is a temperament treatment to increase the overall toughness and strength of the Aluminum. 7075-T6 Aluminum was chosen for the AR-15 platform for its ease of manufacturing, lightweight properties, and strength.
Style: The Vertex Upper Was Designed To Be Used With Pistol Calibers Specifically And As A Result Doesn't Have A Dust Door Or Forward Assist.
