This Fortis upper receiver is precision machined from 7075 T6 billet aluminum. The one-piece design of this product ensures its durability and strength. Unlike a forged upper, a billet upper is machined from a single piece of aluminum using a precision CNC machine. Although forged uppers tend to be cheaper and lighter than billet uppers, they are not as sturdy and might not last as long.

As with all other Fortis products, this billet upper was manufactured with both form and function in mind. All extra weight was shaved off where possible without sacrificing the rigidity or the strength of the upper. The result is a billet upper with all the aesthetics that Fortis is known for and an increased functionality. The Fortis upper is lightweight at 8.6 ounces. It is made in the USA of the finest materials, this Fortis billet upper receiver is certain to meet your expectations.

The goal of Fortis Manufacturing is to provide firearm operators with exceptional design and aesthetics at easily affordable prices. The company is deeply committed to bringing only the finest AR products to the firearms market. Each product created by the company undergoes a rigorous testing process and evaluation period by selected professionals. At the end of the process, feedback is collected and evaluated. If changes are necessary, Fortis constructs new samples for retesting. The process continues until all the bugs are ironed out, giving purchasers of Fortis products the assurance of a piece that really works.
