Hope you guys can help me. Was going to go with a 9mm flattop upper for my next build but I see Sun Devil makes an upper with out the forward assist or shell deflector. I was wondering if someone can post a pic of one on a standard lower, showing the right side (ejection port side). I'm going for a specific look and maybe the Sun Devil is what I want. Thanks.

Its a small pic but its all i have. I like the clean look of it myself. Hell id buy it for my future build if i didnt have to go buying everything else separately. Maybe in the future ill replace whatever upper i get with their upper and lower.

And their website is terrible, they only have one picture of their stuff, boo.

Is that a billet lower too? Either way your lower looks pretty close to a standard lower. Upper looks nice. I may end up going that route. Cost might be just a little less considering the 9mm would need the gas tube drilled.

I wish it were my AR in the pic, but i found it on google a few weeks back. Its only like.. $320 or so for both the upper and lower billet, which from what ive seen its the best price around. Most billet lowers go for that price, let alone both.

I was attracted to sun devil because they had so many anodized colors, but other than that I would stick to like.. a tactical innovations billet lower or something else.

Thanks Stickman. I was hoping to gauge if the billet upper looked ungodly wide when on a normal lower, but looking at your billet lower, it doesn't look any wider than a standard forged lower.

I purchased 2 SUN DEVIL billet uppers from colemantyler.com in the past 30 days and 1 SUN DEVIL billet lower...they were 139.00 each plus shipping .... the ''slick side uppers" are cheaper than the ones with the fwd assist and shell deflector....

you cannot beat his prices anywhere.... uppers are in stock now....lowers will re-stock soon...

Too bad Sun Devil uses soft, shitty 6061 T6 aluminum instead of 7075 for both the upper and lower.

I have a lower myself, have not used it on anything yet.

Just remember, any upper receiver other than one specifically made for 9mm is going to have a gas tube port. You will get a good bit of fowling blown out of that hole if you use something else. Not a huge deal but just FYI.
