This is a brand new 5.45x39 upper from S&W that was a take off of a complete rifle. It has never been fired except from the factory. I can not have it anymore (per the BOSS) so I need to let it go (diapers are more important right now). The upper will be shipped in the rifle case that it came in. $600 FTF or $615 shipped.
The upper will come with the correct magazine follower for 5.45x39, and since I was planning on using this on my listed lower, I have a 30 round rebuild kit ready for it if the buyer can use it

To sweeten the deal for the buyer, I will give them the option of a lightly used EoTech 512 for $300 or a lightly used Trijicon TriPower for $400. I do not want to sell these seporate, just trying to make a good deal for somebody.

I will be away from home for the next two days so I can not post pictures, but I will Friday if needed. I will have computer access so PMs will get to me.

No fee for discrete paypal.

All surplus 5.45x39 is corrosive, just make sure you clean it good everytime you use it.

I have not shot it, but I was told that there would be no problems. Even in the G&A write up this/last month they mentioned that it was designed for it.
The barrel is chrome lined and so is the gas block. I was told that pouring hot water in the upper and down the barrel to dissolve the ammonia salts then clean and lube as normal would take care of any corrosive primmer issues.
Apparently the Hot water helps dry the metal faster and does not to any damage to the AR parts.

Most of available 5.45 is corrosive.

I did find some non-corrosive at Century Arms on sale 800 rounds for $100, free shipping if you order is $500 or over (sale price ens 10-31).
On AR15. there are reports that this ammo functions very well (2-3 inch groups) with this upper despite Century's disclaimer about barrel twist.

AIM has corrosive 1080 rounds for approx $150 delivered.

The ammo is available and cheap.
