Real good quality for the money.

Quite impressed bought it for the price and looking to buy a few more when the time is right. Was getting impatient on one of my builds an decided to roll the dice on this and couldnt be happier. Fits perfect with all my lowers and have had no issues whatsoever.

Great upper


Uppers came in, in excellent condition. Can’t beat them for the money.

I never heard of Willow Defense before but the price of this upper receiver was very good so I thought I’d try it out. I built a 5.56 pistol out of it using an Anderson lower. The upper and lower receivers fit well. It’s not a really snug fit but I put a rubber insert in the lower receiver that fits behind the back take-down pin and now it’s a very snug fit. I sometimes use a shim washer on the front take-down pin if the upper and lower is really loose but the shim wouldn’t fit in there so the fit between the receivers is pretty good. All the upper receiver parts fit very well. No issues with assembling it. It’s “T” marked in white which is really nice. For the money it’s a very good buy. I’d buy another one.

Used it to test barrel fit. Tight fit so I should have a good build. No wobble at all.

Good low-cost upper

by -

Built one AR pistol with a Willow upper. Fits well and the pistol functions fine. Black finish matches the Spikes lower.

Works as advertised


Completed the build, fast shipping and surprisingly well made for the price. Barrel met up well with the upper, The black coating is a little rough to the touch but besides that it works fine!
