*THIS IS AN UPPER ONLY, NOT A COMPLETE RIFLE*
This upper is not an Alexander Arms 6.5 Grendel, it is a Model-1 Sales "6.5 Sporter", it's compatible and copyright infringement-free.
Just to be clear, I am not selling it because I don't like it - it has performed very well and I really do enjoy shooting it. I have the opportunity to purchase an upper I helped build for a customer, I really liked the way it turned out and I am trying to offset the cost.
Let's start at the muzzle and work our way back.
Barrel is a M1S (ER Shaw) 24", chrome-lined, fluted setup with a target crown and 1/2 X 36 threads. I designed and CNC-machined some adapters to bump it up to 5/8 X 24 threads so that it would be compatible with .308-class muzzle devices. I have used it to mount a suppressor:
The adapter in the picture is a prototype, I will install a beadblasted/parkerized version before it ships out.
Round count on the barrel is less than 200, probably less than 150 - but if I say 200, then I know for sure it's an honest answer.
The gasblock is a clamp-on style with a picatinny rail on top, gas system is in the rifle-length configuration. In the picture of the gasblock you will see a button-head screw in the side of the free float tube. This is to fill a hole where the bipod mount used to be when the tube was on a different rifle. This style of tube rarely clocks the same on different uppers/bbls.
The free float tube is a simple heavy-wall aluminum setup with a diamond knurl, simple - but it's sturdy as all hell.
Bipod is a chinese knock off that is actually not terrible. I did modify it with a neat little leveling system. Not much to speak of, but the mount is there when your ready to upgrade to the real Harris.
Upper is a flat top with an integral riser for large lenses and to keep you from having to squish your face to see through the scope. It has a standard charging handle.
Bolt group is M1S, M-16 carrier (for extra mass)and a M1S 7.62 X 39mm bolt with an appropriate firing pin made by KNS.
*SCOPE IS NOT INCLUDED*
But that's ok, it's a cheap placeholder anyways.......
Also included is one C-Products 15 round magazine. If you live in a state where those are prohibited, I will take $25 off the price so that it'll cover you having to go buy the correct one for your state.
Also included is a 2-die reloading die set. These are lightly used Hornady Custom-Grade dies, I love these things - but I'm going to end up with a duplicate set - so these can go with the upper. You will have to provide your own shell holder, but it is just a standard 7.62 X 39mm size, they cost less than $5 on ebay. I only have one, so I need to hang on to it....
Price with mag is $700
- shipping free to the continental US. I will not export, it will ship UPS ground, insured. I'll be more than happy to expedite shipping, all you have to do is pay actual difference between what you want and ground rates.
