Looking for info on a upper I'm buying. It's labeled as a 5.56 MP 1:9. It's a custom built Carbine upper and I'm just trying to nail down a Manufacturer if possible. Any help and advice is appreciated. Thanks!

We're going to need a lot more than that. Link to the website selling it?

It's a local sale. It's a Carbine Length gas system with an M203 Cut and just marked 5.56 MP 1:9. Everything checks out and looks good on the upper, and I imagine the barrel would be fine just want to nail down a manufacturer. Very sorry, but this is all the info I could find.

you're just going to have to buy it trusting it's good. Anything the seller can't tell you won't be easy to learn. Needs to be a good price - you're local to PSA and could get a nice upper (eventually) for a hell of a price.

I think I'm just going to take the plunge on this one and trust the barrel is good. It has all the upper qualities I want (quad rails with three covers, forward assist and dust cover) and includes a BCG and Charging Handle for 330 OTD.

Mosin-Marauder,

From what little you describe it looks like it's a S & W "MP" barrel??? Check and see at least if it's chrome bored. Conventional barrels are usually not chrome bored. If it is then at least you can take in comfort it's a higher end barrel.

I picked it up yesterday and saw it is actually marked "L MP 5.56 NATO 1/9".

Any ideas? As I said it's a M4 Profile Barrel, 16", and is parkerized.

Thanks for any help.
