I'm in fever looking for a 5.45x39 upper for my ar-15.

Anyone knows if any vendor still have it in stock ?

I ordered when they were in stock in December,
By the way aimsurplus.com is getting a new batch of CMMG midlength uppers.
You may want to call them tomorrow morning.

I have one complete S&W 5.45x39mm rifle left that has just been sitting on the rack. e-mail me if you are interested. guns@tenpercentfirearms.com

If you were just interested in the upper, I might part it out.

Email sent. Yes, I'm only interest in a complete upper.

We might strike a deal if the price is right.

Just to let you know, there are NO 10 round 5.45 mags available for the AR.

Nothing is impossible from the part kits. Also, I've learned that the 5.45 would work the 5.56 mags with some particular follower. ;)

The only thing I'd be worried about is the supply of surplus 5.45x39 drying up. The surplus isn't going to last forever, and it's certainly not going to last long as some of the other surplus cartridges. It may be cheaper to shoot now, but not if the supply of surplus dries up. You may be better off just going for a .223/5.56 upper. Just my 2 cents.

Stock pile is the only advantage with surplus. Think of it as a long term investment. ;)

You save $100-200 per thousand rounds of 5.45 over 5.56, so after a few tins you've got a free upper. What more could you want?

I guess I'm a lucky guy. The folks at Copes Dist. was able to locate a misplaced unit and reserved it for me at a very descend price. My S&W 5.45 upper is on its way home.

It's going to be more fun at the range on my next visit. :)

You're correct, but you also have to think about the issue of corrosive ammunition through an AR...
