Doea anyone make a slick sided upper that is in stock? Are there any issues without a forward assist or brass deflector?

Bob Joes had this in stock today.
I think I bought the last one.



Check the in stock upper thread and midway.

Check Midway for DPMS Lo-Pro or RRA for a flattop 9mm upper. The 9mm upper will need the gas tube hole drilled. Not a big deal at all.

Nice smaller pile of brass, with Dpms slick sides. I'm really liking the tall ones, for optics.

In stock is the hard part

Les Baer also sells a flat top upper without a forward assist.

If you are looking to minimize weight, a 9mm upper drilled for a gas tube is the way to go. I've bought mine from ADCO Firearms, and had them drill the gas hole. AFAIK, there is no lighter upper receiver option. I haven't experienced any issues or missed the FA or brass deflector, but I'm not a lefty

Weight, too much weight!

I just finished putting together my 9mm with a DPMS slick side upper and 5" Adco barrel. This has quickly become my favorite gun. Lightweight, well balanced and accurate. Very fun!!

The issue is that theyre ugly as hell.

The DPMS Lo Pro slick side upper is also significantly thicker and heavier than a 9mm upper drilled for a gas port or a regular flat-top upper without a forward assist. I'm pretty sure it is an ounce or two heavier than a regular flat-top upper with a forward assist.
