Selling my custom built 16" 6.8 SPC upper. Brand new, never fired. Upgraded from standard uppers with a match-grade AR Performance (ARP) Scout barrel ($250), match-grade ARP Superbolt ($125), ARP BCG ($95), light weight free-float modular rail with removable rail sections for a comfortable grip and the ability to install the rails only where you need them and not get jabbed by the rails where you don't need them ($250), Palmetto State Armory (PSA) upper receiver ($125), PSA charging handle ($25), and A2 flash hider ($15) all professionally installed by an experienced gunsmith. Over $1000 invested in this upper, need the $ for a down payment on a home. My loss is your gain! With the right ammo and experienced shooter, this upper is fully capable of attaining sub-moa accuracy and you will run out of money for ammo before you could ever wear this out. AR Performance makes some of the most accurate and durable barrels and bolts on the planet! You cannot buy a more accurate or better equiped 6.8 upper and with the 6.8 SPC it has the weight of a .223, but nearly the knowdown power and range of a .308! Be sure to check out the specs below. This upper does not require a FFL and can be shipped right to your door. Willing to accept credit card payment thru discreet Paypal transaction. Shipping is $25 within CONUS. Can provide additional pics upon request. Also have a brand new PSA complete lower upgraged with a sweet trigger and Magpul furniture available to match the upper if you'd like a complete rifle.

16" 6.8 ARP Scout profile barrel- 4150 CMV:
4150 CMV 6.8 Scout profile barrel with a more accurate 6.8 ARP chamber and Hybrid 5R rifling 11.25 twist . 1lb-12oz
M4 feed ramps, mid length gas system, .700 under the guard, .750 gas block dia. .700 dia from gas block to muzzle. 5/8-24 thread muzzle.
Melonite treated barrels have proven to last 30% longer than chromelined barrels and are more accurate. Hi perf. chamber and barrel allow for ANY factory ammo to be used along with the hottest handloads.
These 5R barrels usually produce 60-80fps more than the common 11 twist 4 groove barrels and are as fast as some 20" barrels. These barrels are as accurate as any 6.8 barrels made, many report 1/2" groups at 100yds with Hornady 110gr HPBT factory ammo.
The 4150 11595E steel Melonite(QPQ) treated barrels we sell will last twice as long as stainless barrels-60 rockwell VS 28-30 of the stainless. The final finish meets or exceeds stainless steel corrosion resistance. 416 stainless barrels .980" in diameter do not meet the 2:1 burst/hoop strength safety ratio required by the firearms industry standards in anything larger than the 5.56. We only use the stronger 4150 11595 E barrel steel in all of our barrels.
6.8 9310 alloy superbolt & firing pin:
Our bolts are not just a normal AR15 bolt design made from 9310 like most of the others on the market. We have taken the current AR15 bolt to the next level by completely redesigning the lug and cam pin area as well using a stronger 9310 Vac-ARC alloy to make this the most durable bolt on the market except our 800 series bolts. Notice the thicker web between the recess and the lugs and the larger radius at the root of the lugs. The area of attachment and strength was increased by 24%.
M-16 Carrier or BCG:
True Mil Spec M16 carrier, phosphate treated, chromelined bore(where bolt rides). Same carriers used in Colt, FN, and sold by BCM.
BCG options below include carrier, bolt, firing pin , cam pin, and firing pin retainer.
