I am thinking about building a retro AR shorty, but could not seem to find a company that sells an A1 upper receiver without a brass deflector. I was wondering if anyone knew of one that made a quality one and any other sources of old parts that are around for the AR? Also if anyone has any pictures of their retro projects I would love to see them.

would an upper from a AR6450 work? Just guessing

Go to Gunbroker and type in SP-1 and you should come across a few stripped slab-side uppers without the case deflector and bolt hold-open for around $70.00. Here's one for $69.00:

That is not what he is looking for and uppers don't have a "bolt hold-open"

He is looking for something with a fwd assist and no brass deflector.

GOTO CDNN investments and look at there surpluss m16a1 uppers. For the cost listed you get a stock set minus the pistol grip and a complete 1/12 a1 upper less the bc. these uppers have no case deflector, but have a fa. BTW there Colts.

I believe that fulton Armory sells A1 uppers like you mention.

Check this out

They also carry stripped uppers in A1

None of the mentioned sites sell just an upper receiver with a FA and no deflector. I'm looking for one like these so I can built something similar. So I'd be looking for a m16a1 upper receiver.

You could try Del-Ton. I wanted the same type upper receiver for my CAR build a few months ago but they were out, maybe they're re-stocked now.

I went with an A1/C7 style upper from Bushmaster, even that stock I believe was running low.

I like that gun more every time I see it. Now you need an A1 pistol grip!

The AR6450 upper isn't drilled for a gas tube. Which stange why they wouldn't, I guess because it's a blowback action.
