Introducing an extremely light weight 7.62 x 39 compete upper assembly for your AR-15 developed and tested by Checkmate Rifle Company.  Use with your existing AR lower to reduce the overall rifle weight, increase knock-down power, and save money on ammo.  This upper assembly uses a light weight M4 contour barrel combined with an extremely effective muzzle brake to bring you the hardest hitting and easiest to handle rifle in the lightest package possible.  You'll be surprised how accurate those cheap steel case Russian made 7.62 x 39 rounds can be out of a precision US-made barrel with tight tolerances.  This setup would make an excellent hog or deer rifle that will be super light for hiking around in the woods, and also be a fun and cheap to shoot plinker.

We have had excellent results testing this upper assembly with steel case ammunition, however the action needs to be cleaned more frequently than your AK or SKS!  The trade off is increased accuracy, reduced weight, and lower recoil over those platforms.  We recommend Red Army's new boat tail 7.62 x 39 ammunition.  We also reccomend using a heavy hammer spring or Velocity's 4 lb. drop-in trigger assembly that is meant for steel case ammuntion.  This will eliminate the occasional failure-to-fire's that can occur with the hard primers commonly used in Russian cartridges.

Uses a readily-available 7.62 x 39 magazine for the AR-15 platform made by large magazine manufacturers such as C Products Defense, ASC, and D&H.

These upper assemblies are made-to-order.  Please allow 1-2 weeks for delivery.
