LaRue Ultimate AR-15 Upper Kit

For all you quality conscious AR15 do-it-yourselfers, this upper kit is the absolute pinnacle of Ultra-Precision.

For you wannabe quality conscious AR15 do-it-yourselfers, this kit will be awesome to cut your AR assembly teeth on.

Three weeks ago we offered a run of a marvelous, complete 6.5 Grendel rifles based off these same upper components - and it sold very well. But many calls came in saying "take my money - sell me the parts!!". Okay, we listened, for a limited time, you can now get the satisfaction of putting together the finest upper build kit ever offered on the planet Earth, and at a smokin' price, pick from 3 great calibers.

Be undaunted  - our rifle techs are standing by the phones to answer any and all of your questions - 512-259-1585

I had the good sense to send one of those 6.5 Grendels to an author of the 6.5 Grendel Reloading manual, the last word on reloading the 6.5 ... here's what he had to say about the complete rifle that's based on this upper kit ...


*******************************************************************

"There are many little details about the LaRue Stealth 2.0 that I have been noticing as I dig around this rifle.

If it were just a billet AR with a nice receiver set and quality barrel, you probably wouldn't see me posting much about it. Silence would be more telling than signal.

Everything is Top Dead Center and aligned, starting from the detent on the buttplate of the RAT stock (which removes to expose the cleaning kit sleeves), all the way to the ports on the Tranquillo brake.

The handguard rail aligns perfectly with the upper rail, which I've not ever seen on forged receiver builds even with the best after-market handguards out there.

Aluminum billet receivers and handguard were anodized before being Cerakoted FDE, and the color match across the furniture and aluminum is very uniform.

I haven't spent this much time pawing over an AR in many years, and am truly appreciative of the thought and workmanship that went into this rifle from the perspective of someone who has studied this industry since childhood.

There is a lengthy list of features based on improved functionality like the gas tube ferrule (gizmo), the MBT-2S trigger, along with an extreme passion for fit between all the parts, with intelligent design woven into the components. The flats on the Tranquillo brake are nice, and the supplied wrench doubles as a barrel nut and brake wrench with jaws for both on it. I really like this rifle."

As usual the quality is where it always is....I literally assembled the upper...swapped the 2.5x10 Nightforce from my 20" Stealth onto this upper and ripped off numerous sub moa groups at 100yds. Right outta the box...nuff said... All I need now is an FDE Larue Lower to complete the picture...Thanks for the deal on the kit ML.

Could not be happier with my LaRue Ultimate Upper kit. Expected amazing performance and looks awesome, too. To top it off, I originally was told it might be about 2 weeks before delivery and I ended up getting it in a few days time. Customer service as always has been top notch! Thank you very much!

I have owned lots of AR's but this is my first LaRue rig. I picked up a 6.5GR kit and could not be more pleased with what I received. What are you waiting for? Just buy one of these kits. You will love it.

What I received at my door step was a long black boom stick that works, and it works pretty darn well; I don't machine parts, nor do I assemble firearms for a living (smarter people than me do all that) I am not a gun nerd, I don't go on forums, I don't really care to spend my time talking about what if's, I don't care what looks good because some dude with a beard, cool guy shades, velcro on his pants and zippers on the arms of his jacket made a video telling me that such and such is cool and such and such ain't. My mates don't really look like that...none of us make videos either. We don't really make money doing what we do... What I do is shoot things....thats what I do. So I go out and I lay on my belly, prop up against something that won't move and typically won't let bullets go through it, hide behind things and shoot at other things. I don't care about theoretical, possible, or what if's. That is why I buy Larue products with the money that I do have because I know they work. Buy one, put it on a lower, buy a trunk load of ammo and shoot. Shoot when its hot, cold, wet, dry, windy...whatever. Keep her lubed up and have fun. I've had mine for a week and I've shot the first case of ammo I bought for it. It makes little holes on paper and goes bing when you shoot at steel. I already have a lower with a MBT on it so I tossed it on that lower and I shot the piss out of it. When I'm home I practice trigger control by dry firing since they sent me a trigger ready to do so. Buy it, shoot it, and join the damn club.

What else can I say that every one else has not said above, the only thing that is disappointing is the accuracy with factory match ammo (Hornady SST 123 Match) gave less than positive groups, 1 in. @ 50 yrds I hope it will do better with hand loads, I would have expected better from Larue.

So, all the reviews I am seeing are 5-armadillos. I am giving this purchase 4. The upper is fantastic. I chose the 6.5 Grendel, and I am happy I did. This will be my first 6.5mm. I like the fit of the 2.0 Stealth, and the way the upper receiver connects to the rail. Performance is what you would expect from LT. And value is great. For under $1,000, I have a high performance upper. Two areas where LT can improve: 1) the upper receiver does not have the right design and fit and finish to mate with a LaRue lower. There is a bit of a gap in the left rear, and the lines don't match. I think LT needs a new lower for their Stealth uppers. It is like the design shops came from two different worlds. 2) I chose black, and it is an anodized finish. That is okay, but the LT lower is much more refined. Maybe it is Cerekoted. The anondizing is good, but not great. I hesitated to pick FDE, because I did not know the color code, and FDE is hard to match a lower to.

Fit and finish on my Ultimate Upper kit was out of this world. Every piece came together like I was building a rifle in the LaRue factory. The design of their barrels and gas block take away all of the hard work from installing a barrel which, in my opinion, is the most difficult part of assembling an upper receiver correctly. Slap this kit on your favorite receiver and you're ready to shoot one ragged hole!

Fit and machining of the upper is pristine. FDE Cerakote is also of high quality. The hand guard is very smooth and light, and the profile around the barrel is slim. MBT is hyper consistent as always. Polymer is of high quality as well, no flash marks or tolerance issues. Overall a very good purchase from LaRue. Certainly won't be my last!

Extremely happy with the quality of this kit. Shipping was fast compared to the orders placed before mine. Brandon in customer service was very helpful in adjusting my order after it was placed. I chose to have my upper assembled. Again, the quality exceeded my expectations.

No where near my Birthday, Anniversary or Christmas but I couldn't pass up this "gift" for myself! Great kit. Now about that lower to make it a whole LaRue rifle and not a frankenbuild.

Super nice kit. Fit and finish is top notch and the FDE looks great. Has everything I was looking for and just add a billet lower and you are set. If you get it you will want more, but that's ok. Easy to assemble and shipped in the foam divided box as pictured (not assembled). Dillo dust rocks!

I own one LaRue rifle already & it is my favorite firearm. I was in the process of building a 6.5 Grendel when I received the email about this build kit. I ordered it immediately as I know the quality products LaRue puts out. All components went together easily as quality products do. My only regret is not ordering build kits in the other calibers. Thanks Mark!

This is an incredible deal! I would hesitate to really call it a kit as if real installation is required. All of what I consider to be the tedious installation: bolt extractor and injector, port cover etc were already installed. It literally took maybe 5-10 minutes more to assemble this upper than it did to put a .260 barrel in my tOBR. Fit and finish is perfect as I have come to expect from Larue. When this went on sale there was some grumbling about having to buy the entire kit but think about this; you can add a nice lower for $100-$200 and end up with a complete Larue rifle for right at $1000!

Mark, this is THE ultimate upper kit. Thank you for the amazing offering. This is an amazing deal and I have been waiting for years for a deal like this to come along from LaRue. I will be pairing the setup with a billet 80% and will be cerakoting this set up with a netting type camo. The deal is almost to good to be true but it is in fact easily the best deal for a Grendel around. And LaRue quality is a brand you can trust and depend on.

Ordered the Grendel upper, got in the mail in less than a week. This thing fits tight just like my OBR! Can't wait to get it out to the ranch to dial it in! Couldn't pass it up for that price. Hopefully they'll offer us some lowers in the future to go along with them.

Great kit, goes together easily. Handguard is slim and the upper/rail attachment is strong as they get. MBT is a great trigger and adds significant value to any AR. Takes about 30 min to assemble, there are many videos on YouTube showing the process.

I purchased the 6.5g kit. To say I am pleased is an understatement. Fit and finish are exactly what you would expect from Larue. Perfect. The handguard is well designed and slim. The fact that you get a mbt trigger with the purchase is just icing on the cake. The mbt is a world class trigger. I only wished I could have purchased a lower when I bought the kit. I will take it out and shoot it this weekend. Thanks for a great rifle kit.

What can I say that has not been already said. I got the 6.5g kit. The price was great. Fit and finish are what you would expect from Larue. Perfect.The handguard contour is nice and slim. I love the way it mounts to the upper. Having the mbt trigger included with the kit is like icing on a cake. Ive installed several in my other rifles and it truly is a world class trigger. And at that price a steal to boot. I am very pleased with everything about this kit. I cant wait to shoot it this weekend. I only wish that I could have purchased a Larue lower when I bought this kit. Thanks for the great service and product.

Kit came in fast, everything was beautiful. The kit was missing a charging handle, which wasn't a big deal as I have extra parts laying around everywhere. But Larue caught it and shipped one out to me immediately even though I hadn't made or intended to make an issue out of it. GREAT customer service, as always. And a fantastic product. My stack of Dillo's will keep increasing. Thanks Larue!

This is by far the highest quality rifle kit you will find anywhere, even at double the price. LaRue loves America, loves our Troops, and is unwavering in its commitment to quality. Knowing LaRue, he's making such a deal on these just to keep his folks employed with little to no profit. So, support the industry, and some American workers and buy one. You'll be happy you did. I'm pairing mine with an Aero Precision Betsy Ross 1776 Special Addition lower to make the perfect Patriot rifle. This is a serious and accurate battle rifle, of heirloom quality. Can't be beat for the $.

High Quality Kit! Hoping to buy another in .300 soon. Only downside, I ordered FDE and got every thing in FDE except for the Pistol Grip. I can order a one for cheap enough. Now for a Stripped Lower from LaRue...but the 6.5 and soon .300 can sit on my tAR Lower for the time being. Saved $200 by getting it unassembled.
