Quality Material and Finish

The team at 2A Armament works from its home base in Idaho, pouring their expertise and love of the craft into everything they manufacture. The Balios Lite Gen 2 Upper Receiver is machined from the finest quality American Made 7075-T6 plate aluminum billet. Once the Balios Lite Gen 2 upper is machined, it is bead blasted and given a Mil-Spec Type II Class 2 Hard Anodized coating to prevent corrosion and repel the effects of rough handling. Let there be no doubt, this one is ready to work wherever the battle takes you.
