The upper receiver is a deciding factor in AR 15 reliability, so you should always get one from a company you can depend on such as Spike's Tactical. When you want a machined billet upper AR-15 receiver you want a product that's more than simply a cosmetic improvement over the lower priced forged option. When you choose to go with a Spikes Tactical billet upper you're going for one of the most sought after upper receivers on the market. Certainly, if you want your AR-15 to run at its peak efficiency, then the only real choice is a Spikes Gen 2 upper. The Spikes Tactical billet upper is made to be a perfect match for their billet lower receiver. Although, it will work fine with any standard Mil-Spec forged lower around.
Why Choose This Spikes Billet Upper
This Spikes Tactical Billet Upper is in a class of its own; it has several unique features that improve performance and ergonomics. They are cut from a solid billet of 7075 aluminum, one of the toughest varieties available. This choice of material goes a long way towards preventing flex. Instead of machining the M4 feed ramps later in the process, Spike's Tactical cuts them before the anodizing to improve reliability. The Type-III hardcoat anodize defends the entire surface from corrosion and minimizes wear. Unintentional bolt releases are prevented by the raised side walls on the exterior.
If you like just a little bling, then you will appreciate the fact that they proudly engraved the Spikes billet upper with their company name and logo. When other shooters catch an eyeful they will know the quality that you demand in your rifle. To make sure that you have all of your options available, they enlarged the bolt catch cut out area. Therefore, your new Spikes Gen 2 upper will work with the popular Magpul BAD lever as well as most aftermarket bolt release levers.
The Spikes Tactical Billet Upper Play Well with Others
In keeping things simple the Spikes billet upper will accept any standard Mil-Spec barrel nut. That way you don't have to order any crazy special hardware to bolt things together. Most after-market handguards are compatible with this receiver. Another thoughtful touch is the way they secure the forward assist. Instead of the normal roll pin, Spikes uses a set screw. It's simply a superior design. The dust cover even come pre-installed for your convenience!

Quite possibly the nicest upper I have ever seen. Cost is a bit higher than most, but well worth it.
