The BROADSWORD-89 receivers take what we loved about the BROADSWORD and make the handguard lockup even more stout than before. With relief cuts on the face of the upper receiver, the BROADSWORD-89 upper seamlessly integrates with our M89/L89 handguards. This enhanced lockup reduces rail flex even further, so aggressive bipod and barricade loading will have the least impact on POI shift of any combination we’ve ever tested.
As before, the BROADSWORD receivers have a few notable features that our standard Forged receivers do not.
• The upper receiver is significantly reinforced along its entire profile to stiffen the interface between the barrel, handguard, and mounted optics.
• The Forward Assist has been shifted forward so left handed manipulations of the charging handle have added clearance.
• The upper receiver is precision machined to seamlessly interface with our entire 89 series of handguard.
Please note, with the ejection port rod being captured within the upper receiver now, the use our of knurled port door rod is prevented. Please use a traditional port door rod with these upper receivers. These billet receivers are compatible with standard forged lowers, as well as their accompanying billet Broadsword lowers.
