*The 2A Armament BALIOS-Lite Upper does not come with a dust cover and forward assist.
If you have been looking for a sturdy but lightweight AR 15 upper receiver, you should definitely check out the BALIOS-lite by 2A Armament. The BALIOS-lite upper features the same design and characteristic as the standard BALIOS upper; however, the BALIOS-lite is significantly lighter in weight. This upper receiver is the ideal component for those who participate in three-gun competitions, hunting and any other activity where reduced weight is optimal.
The best part about the BALIOS-lite upper is that it is compatible with any standard forged lowers from other manufacturers. Also, by removing the forward assist, the weighted on this product is reduced even further. For superior strength and longevity, this upper receiver is 3-D machined from 7075-T6 plate aluminum. Moreover, the M4-style feed ramps on the upper help ensure that rounds enter the firing chamber without “nose-diving.”
In addition to the lightweight advantages, the bead-blasted finish of the BALIOS-lite upper helps avoid the shooter’s bane of glare and reflected light. Also, the Mil-Spec Type III hardcoat anodized finish will help protect the upper from becoming scratched or corroded. This stripped upper weighs a mere 5.58 ounces instead of the 8.05-ounce weight of the standard BALIOS upper.
The 2A Armament BALIOS lite upper, as with all other parts designed by this company, is the product resulting from careful design and innovative manufacturing processes. So if you are in the market for a new upper for your AR 15 that’s both lightweight and strong, the BALIOS-lite by 2A Armament will certainly meet all your requirements and more.
