View Full Version : Need help w/ upper ID

04-14-2009, 7:24 PM
I picked up an A1 upper w/ a 16" HBAR. No markings on the barrel, and the only marking on the upper is 'K'. Also, no shell deflector and teardrop FA. Is there any way to tell who manufactured it? Any help is much appreciated! Thanks!

That's a funky sounding upper. Good luck finding the info you're looking for.

Is the "K" marking near the rear sight?

Yes, the 'K' is below the rear sight.

My mistake, it does have a shell deflector. Here are a couple of pics.

Imma take a stab at this....maybe I am right, maybe someone can prove me wrong.

The only "K" I am aware of is...Kaiser. I haven't seen a stand alone "K" until now but...

DK= Diemaco / Kaiser
LK= FN / Kaiser
CK= Colt / Kaiser
FK= FNMI / Kaiser
LK= LAR / Kaiser

So thats where and how my opinion "guess" was formed.
