Launched at SHOT Show 2019 in Las Vegas, Nevada, the BRN-180 uppers combine features of the classic AR-180 with modern upgrades such as a full-length Picatinny rail and a free-float M-LOK handguard.
All BRN-180 Gen2 uppers are ideal for folding stocks or braces as the recoil mechanism is totally contained inside the upper.
The BRN-180 Gen2 updates include a new method of securing the handguard and adjustable gas blocks for all barrel lengths to optimize suppressor use.
The newest model has a 10” barrel chambered in .300 AAC Blackout, well-suited for a building a BRN-180S pistol or a registered short barreled rifle.
The other Gen2 BRN-180 uppers are still chambered in .223 Wylde to maximize accuracy potential with both 5.56 and .223 Remington ammunition.
In stock and shipping now, the Gen2 BRN-180 uppers include:
- 078-000-609 BRN-180S GEN2 Upper, .300 Blackout 10” barrel, $899.99 retail
