EDIT: APRIL 5th 2018 - At first I ran just the barrel, bolt, and muzzle brake for sale, a few tire kickers and a low baller inquired via PM. I've now completed the build of the upper and I'm selling it as a complete upper.

X-Caliber Barrel / Maxim Firearms Bolt / Troy Claymore Muzzle Brake

The barrel is 20" HBAR configuration, .750" gas block journal , threaded 5/8x24 in Matte finish

Caliber is .264 LBC (Shoots Grendel Factory ammo) 1:8 twist

Upgrades on the barrel are thermal fluting and Cryogenic Treatment

Cryogenic Treatment advantages: From X-caliber's website - - -

50 to 60 fps increase in velocity, less copper and carbon fouling, decrease in group size, and P.O.I. shift, 30% lower Core Temperature.

And it is deep fluted to dissipate what heat is present.

The bolt is a brand new 7.62x39 bolt (Type 1 Grendel chamber/bolt format) You cannot use a 6.5 Grendel Bolt with this barrel (Type II) the bolt face depths are different i.e. headspacing will differ.

The barrel alone, configured the way this is, from X-caliber runs $ 615.00

The upper receiver is a MEGA heavy walled slick sided thing of beauty.

Midwest Industries 12" handguard with a beauty ring installed just inside the gas block.

Adjustable gas block and rifle length gas tube.

Standard Bolt Carrier and Charging handle not pictured BUT included.

Total package price (will not separate): $ 850.00. $ 750.00

TTT -

Now it's a complete upper, function tested (20 rounds) no issues.

The upper and handguard are not new, they are harvested from a previous build so they have a few handling marks, nothing gaudy or noticeable.

Function tested the upper today - 20 rounds no issues, bolt locks back on empty, brass looks great, feeding and extraction strong.

Had 4 rounds of factory ammo, Hornady Black 123 grain ELD-M, pushed the first shot due to a guy in the bay next to me shooting a cannon. Timed the next three after his booms.
