Wow, looks good. Just wondering on the strength and if it can handle the torque to install barrel nuts etc. but other than that looks like a great product at an affordable price. Might have to give this a shot on the next build.

Use a Reaction Rod and this would be a none issue for the most part.

WTH kind of question is this. One would think that they wouldn't simply build it as decoration or a book end.

I am very excited about this upper. I have been waiting for these to get released. Looks like I'm making a trip out to MI tomorrow.

Staying true to my word, I picked up my billet upper from MI today. I love it. The finish is perfect. It has the T marks. I had it on a BCM lower and the fit and finish are a perfect match. The only thing I can see some people having a problem with is the possibility that a Magpul B.A.D. lever may not fit without some modification to the lever. If you don't use the lever then its perfect. So far I am very impressed. I cannot wait to get this build together. Excuse the oil in the pictures. I just took it out of the box.

Is it just the way the pictures are taken or are there tooling marks on the forward assist and under the bolt catch?

I am sure you can see some tool marks . They are machined not forged. The steps are very small but you will see them when contour milling . Everyone who has handled one loves how they look. Thanks. Troy. Mi

Does anyone know if these have any issues with the aligment tabs on rails such as the Troys or the Fortis REV? Mega has since machined out small cups to accomodate the rail tabs, just wondering if the thicker walls on these MI uppers took that into account, I can't tell by the pics. They look awesome and the price point is great.

Well, let's see some pictures with the upper receiver on some common lower receivers. Maybe show these on some YHM, Spikes, or RRA's lower receivers. I'm sure everyone would like to see how well they match up, and how much contrast in finish there might be. We all know they aint going to be a perfect match, but since you mentioned the blend, let's see it.



Thanks,

Our uppers are designed to be 100% compatible with all our hand guards.
Other manufacturers hand guards that use different features may not fit.

That is the plan for the future. We do not have an expected release date as of yet.

Looks to be a very good fit with most lowers. I like it, and I'll be looking for them soon.
