Good question, if I had a 3d model I would measure it for you !

Easy way to find out. Lay the upper on a flat surface with the rail down and measure from the surface to the center line of the barrel.

I've heard various opinions but the one quoted most oftem seems to be 1.215".

I've never found an actual spec listed anywhere though.

Edit: See next post.....

Look from the last cross section drawing at the bottom of the pdf AR15 Upper Receiver (Flattop) drawing link below:

1.875 - 0.625 = 1.250" (ignoring tolerances)

1.875" dim from bottom edge of upper receiver to top of flattop rail

0.625" dim from bottom edge of upper receiver to center of barrel hole
