What Is an AR-15 Upper Parts Kit?

The AR-15 has been one of the most popular rifles in the United States for many years. The military versions, the M-16 and M-4, have been the weapon of choice for the U.S. military for more than 50 years, and for nearly that long, American gun enthusiasts have had an ever-growing love affair with the AR-15. An AR-15 upper parts kit will help you to take your love for this rifle to the next level.

A great choice for collectors and competitors alike, the AR-15 is becoming more popular among hunters and home defenders. It’s one of the most customizable rifles on the market, adding to its popularity and diverse utility. Wing Tactical offers a variety of options for those interested in customizing an AR-15, starting with an AR-15 upper receiver kit that’ll include all the AR-15 upper receiver parts you’ll need.

Upper Receivers

You can purchase a complete upper receiver assembly, like this CMMG Mk4/AR15 Upper Receiver, from Wing Tactical. You can customize your AR-15 by building an upper receiver from scratch using individual parts. If you take this approach, make sure you shop for parts that are compatible with an upper receiver, including a bolt carrier and a charging handle. Buying an AR-15 upper parts kit will ensure all your parts work together seamlessly.

Bolts and Carriers

Just like with upper receivers, you can purchase a complete bolt carrier group, like this Aero Precision PRO Series 5.56 AR-15 Bolt Carrier Group, or you can customize one with individual parts. Just remember that if you buy a stripped bolt carrier group, you will need to buy a gas key and bolt assembly separately. Purchasing an AR-15 upper receiver kit with a bolt carrier group included will simplify the buying process.

Charging Handles

When selecting a charging handle for your AR-15, you should always be sure to choose one that’s compatible with your upper receiver. If you’re a left-handed shooter—or if you share your rifle with a lefty—you can also purchase an ambidextrous charging handle, like this Aero Precision AR-15 BREACH Ambidextrous Charging Handle, to make it easier to use. Getting your hands on an AR-15 upper parts kit will take most of the guesswork out of the equation when you’re shopping for the right changing handle for your rifle.
