Do you want to build a rifle to your own specifications? Are you hoping to get the performance that can only come from a finely tuned and developed performance rifle? If you have been shooting for some time, you realize that only experience and knowledge of a rifle can bring about such results. When you want to get started, there are few better places to begin than with the PWS Modern Musket DI 223 Rem / 5.56 NATO 16″ Stripped Upper FSC.
Built around a 16” precision made barrel, this upper comes ready to provide a solid platform for those who need a full-sized rifle to use. This barrel is machined using a top quality chrome-moly steel and then treated with an Isonite QPQ to improve corrosion resistance and provide a more durable finish. At the end of this barrel, it uses a removable FSC 556 muzzle device, which will aid in muzzle control and reduce felt recoil of the weapon. It uses a 1:8 twist and is chambered in .223 Wylde, allowing users to shoot either .223 Rem or 5.56 NATO without issue.
The upper uses a free-floating rail design that employs PWS’s KeyMod system, making it easy to attach accessories as you need them. Keep in mind that this stripped upper comes without the PWS enhanced carrier or BCM charger handle, allowing you to truly build as you desire. The standard carrier group used in this model uses a heavier overall weight to provide for a longer dwell time and increase consistency of cycling under pressure.
For those shooters who want to really build their own rifle from the ground up, this can serve as a great foundation to start with.
