Here's a little info and pricing on the upper receivers we're building here at HDI.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Our basic HD4 upper receiver can be built in numerous configurations, it all depends on whether you want to stay "mild" with our entry-level HD4-MOE or if you want to upgrade to a free-float railed handguard. Right now we're primarily using Daniel Defense's AR15 Lite series of rails as well as LaRue Tactical's excellent series of railed handguards. For the folks who are looking for a lightweight no-frills option, we'll be offering the Troy Industries TRX "Extreme" handguard soon.

All of our HD4 uppers have the following specs:
- Lothar Walther LW19 16” M4 gov’t profile barrel, carbine-length gas system w/ A2 flash hider.
- 5.56NATO chamber, 1/7 twist w/ chrome lined bore.
- Fixed front sight base, “F” marked for M4 flattop receiver compatibility.
- Young Manufacturing auto bolt carrier assembly.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you're looking for a serious upgrade to your AR, then our HD4[SPR] upper is worth considering. My intent wasn't to create a faithful reproduction of the Mk12 SPR upper receiver - I wanted to produce a modernized and improved version using the best components available today.

Here are the basic specs:
- Lothar Walther LW50 18” SPR profile barrel, rifle-length gas system w/ Smith Vortex flash hider.
- .223Wylde chamber, 1/8 twist w/ polygonal rifling. IonBond finish standard or optionally available with bead blast finish.
- Fixed front sight base or low profile gasblock.
- Young Manufacturing auto bolt carrier assembly with standard IonBond finish (applied to carrier, bolt, extractor & pin, cam pin and gas rings).

Base HD4 upgraded to SPR configuration with Badger Ordnance rifle-length “Stabilizer” rail assembly. Standard with low profile gasblock.

Base HD4 upgraded to SPR configuration with LaRue Tactical LT15-13.2” rail assembly and low profile gasblock.

HD4-SPR-DD14 $1295.00
Base HD4 upgraded to SPR configuration with Daniel Defense AR15 Lite 14.0 rail assembly and low profile gasblock.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Our upper receivers are built one at a time, not on an assembly line or in large batches. Every single one of them is test-fired before it goes out the door to confirm it's functioning 100% reliably.

When you decide to purchase an upper from us, be aware that not everything listed is in-stock or immediately available. We usually have a few of the HD4-MOE upper receivers available as well as the 10.5" SBR versions, but if you request an upgraded configuration we may need to have specific parts (such as the railed handguards) ordered.

Visited the HDI store last week. Was even allowed in the back to watch some of the "magic" happen. All the guys were cool and knowledgable. HDI is top-notch! :thumbsup:

I came by last Thursday with Kalani. He introduced me to Doc and the rest of the guys. I was eyeing the Sig P226 in desert tan. Even called my local FFL to see if they would accept it. Too bad they couldn't. :(
I ended up just buying a Magpul AFG and a few 50 cal ammo cans.

Okay..... gotcha. Didn't realize you were on CalGuns, you should have said something! Feel free to drop in again next time you're in town.

Same invitation goes to the rest of the folks from CalGuns, if you're in Vegas drop by HDI and say hello.

A little teaser pic of a Henderson Defense built HD4-SPR rifle. This one was built with the first barrel out of the box and has shot incredibly well right from the start.

Now I know there's a suppressor on there and I'm NOT trying to get everyone all worked up. :D This is just an example of one configuration of our uppers and some examples of what it's capable of.

Some of the key specs on the rifle:
- 18" Lothar-Walther LW50 SS barrel in rifle-length gas system w/ .223Wylde chamber + 1:8 twist
- Young Manufacturing low profile gasblock
- Badger Ordnance "Stabilizer" handguard
- Young Manufacturing auto bolt carrier assembly
- Trijicon TR23-2G AccuPoint [5-20x50 variable power, mil-dot crosshair with green dot] mounted in LaRue Tactical LT-104 SPR/M4 scope mount
- Troy Industries BUIS, front & rear

A few "personal touches" I added from my own stockpile of goodies:
- OpsInc muzzle brake w/ collar mounting sleeve
- OpsInc suppressor
- MagPul M93B stock

Standard configuration for this upper receiver includes IonBond coating on the barrel and certain components of the bolt carrier assembly + bolt. We normally use the Smith Enterprises "Vortex" flash hider, but we can swap to a few other flash hider or muzzle brake options at the customer's request.

A few pics of the groups I've fired from this rifle:

Sweet set up. Thank you for your continued support. By the way, is the 4th of July shoot still on?

Interesting. Who makes the upper receiver? Does it have m4 feedramps?

Are you guys able/willing to go "custom?"

Say a 14.5 LW-50 223 wylde polygonal barrel with a low-profile gas block along with a customer provided rail and compensator to be pinned and welded?

Our uppers are manufactued by YHM and yes, they all have the M4 feedramps which match the barrel extensions.

Right now our LW50 stainless barrels are only available in 18" SPR profiles w/ rifle length gas systems. There are a limited quantity available with the IonBond coating right now, but we can also offer a satin bead blasted finish also.

Our M4 gov't profile barrels are also manufactured by Lothar-Walther, but they are different specs. It's LW19 (a chrome-molybdenum type steel) with an overall length of 16" and a carbine length gas system, chambered in 5.56NATO with a 1:7 twist chrome-lined bore.

We can do "custom" orders within certain limitations and the customer needs to be aware that the price will be a bit higher due to this. I'll sit down in a bit here and type out some info on the various custom options we can offer.
