Nice piece

by -

Nice piece. Shipped PDQ. Had the upper in 3 days. Can't ask for more than that.

Nice

by -

Decent for the price everything fit well and assembly was a breeze.

Sloppy

by -

Sloppy fit on all lowers. I don't stress about a little wiggle, but this one is bad. Would not buy again. Has square forge mark (Brass Aluminum Forging Enterprises). Do yourself a favor and get something else.

Loose fitting

by -

Out of the three I bought the last one is loose on all uppers I have including 2 Anderson lowers and one Savage MSR recon I wouldn’t probably be worried but this one will be chambered in 6.5 Grendel

Forward assist gets stuck

by -

Quality looks good only issue is It does not like the expo arms forward assist it gets stuck I'm not going to try and build the whole upper might try other forward assists in the future not sure if it's a receiver issue or the forward assist assembly

Happy with it.

by -

Bought this to match an Anderson lower...so it was not a complete Franken Rifle...worked flawless. Got it on sale, but worth the normal price...just happened to be be lucky....and I think there was Black Friday in progress...so why not get a deal?

Very happy

by -

Ordered 2, both came and Fits not bad and coating was flawless. Thanks Primary

Fantastic finish

by -

I normally dont write a review based on looks alone but the finish on this Anderson upper is excellent. It actually caught me by surprise.

QC not so great

by -

recently ordered 2 of these on black Friday, one was perfect no marks nice finish but the other has bad tooling marks around the ejection port! almost like when the surface was being machined the tool caught on something causing sharp gouges. I mean for 28 dollars I cant really complain BUT when I receive one that is perfect and another that is not, to me that is just BAD QC.....

Great Budget Upper

by -

It's an upper. It doesn't cost a fortune. Great for budget builds. No fitment issues with any parts I've put on this.

5 stars all the way

by -

Fast shipping, looks great, fits good, great product for the money can't beat it . Square stamped

Nice upper, a little bit of play with certain lowers

by -

Good quality, nice finish. Didn't fit my Aero precision lower as snug as I'd like, but worth the $$. Mine came with a square casting mark.

Perfect Budget Buy

by -

Caught this on sale. Great buy and perfect for the budget build. Fit and finish are no different than my Spike's that cost 2x more. Nothing out of spec. If you are building a beater gun to throw in your truck or building your first ar and don't know exactly what you are doing, this is perfect.
<br> why spend $100+ on something just for a big name brand?

nice upper

by -

fit nice and tight with Anderson lower. no problem installing parts. works as it should

Great buy

by -

Got this with my Anderson lower and fit like a glove. Would buy again!

Vanilla as expected

by -

Receiver was in perfect shape. All parts fit but were extremely tight. Lapping was required to allow functionality. But the guys were not Anderson so I still give it a 5.

Still My Favorite Online Merchant!

by -

Ordered last Sunday and had it before Tuesday afternoon. Always fast service at Primary! Quality products, blazing fast shipping, and great customer service!

Great value

by -

I ordered this with the Anderson stripped lower for my next build. The upper and lower fit together perfectly and the finish seems perfect on both with no noticeable defects. I will update if there are any issues with the build due to these parts

Buyer Beware!!

by

Had to block sand the bottom of the upper to lower it enough to allow the T/D pins to be installed. Then once everything was assembled, the BCG is binding causing the charging lip to dig into the charging handle under the gas port hole. The result, it is now causing the aluminum to wash out, pining the charging handle between the BCG and the "roof" of the upper. Locks up solid as can be. I have swapped out all the parts (BCG, Lower, Upper) with a working AR and everything works flawlessly, except when AA upper is used. I emailed AA to give them a chance to fix the situation. At first, they were quite accommodating and helpful. They gave me a case number and told me they were going to be sending me a shipping label for the return so they could have QC go over them. I have received no shipping label, and after 2 emails telling them this, nothing. Guess I will just have to make door stops out of these things and buy different brands in the future.

ANDERSON MANUFACTURING AR-15 STRIPPED UPPER RECEIVER

by -

This one I got has the square forge mark. lines dont match up very well with the Anderson lower I have, but the ones with the square forge marks line up almost perfectly with my S&W M&P15.

ANDERSON MANUFACTURING AR-15 STRIPPED UPPER RECEIVER

by -

I got one with the keyhole forge markings. Nice fit on a Anderson MFG. lower. lines did not meet up with a S&W M&P15.
<br>
<br>3 stars because there was a triangular rock (I would assume a polishing stone) in the inside of the forward assist hole. The anodizing was either warn from it being stuck in there, or the anodizing did not get in where it was stuck and there is a small bare aluminum spot inside the receiver and the forward assist hole. Not a big deal, nor does it impede the functionality of the receiver. But a simple visual inspection would have negated the problem.

Top Quality Upper!

by

Have never bought anything Anderson that wasn't of the best quality. You can't go wrong with Anderson!

Great piece at a great price

by

I bought this for my first build. This a great bang for your buck upper. Shipping was super fast. I will most definately be purchasing more of these and other products from P.A.

Great Deal

by

These are Cerro receivers of excellent quality. Fit my lower perfectly and looks great. Thanks for the great customer service.

Great Deal

by

This is a Cerro keyhole quality upper at a great price. No color filled T-marks but no big deal. Color of finish is slightly duller than higher sheen uppers but still very nice. Fit a Black Rain Lower nicely.
