Here's the deal...

I ordered a carbine upper assembly from Yankee Hill Machine (YHM) back in December, to complete an AR-15 build I had sitting in the gunsafe. I was told the backlog on orders at that time was 6+ months!

Fast-forward to last week. Yankee Hill called to inform me that my order was ready for shipment. The salesman asked if I'd ordered 2 uppers or was there a mistake on the factory end. I told him I'd take both (seeing as how difficult it is to get AR parts these days). I don't really need two, so I'm offering one up for sale here. These uppers are hard to get, and if ordered from YHM today, you will be quoted a delivery date into early 2010! [eek]


here's the specs:

YHM Black Diamond Carbine top end (part #YHM-7800)

- Mil. Spec. Forged 7075-T6 Aluminum YHM Flat Top Upper Receiver
- "T" Marked Upper Receiver w/ Forward Assist
- Mil. Spec. Bolt Carrier Assembly
- 14.5" Chrome-Moly Vanadium Steel Barrel,w/ permanently attached YHM Phantom Comp/Brake (YHM-28-5M1), Heat Treated to RC 25-32
- Chambered in 5.56 N.A.T.O., Chrome-Lined with a 1:9" Twist
- YHM Diamond Fluting Improves Rigidity and Aids in Barrel Cooling
- YHM Carbine Length Diamond Handguard (YHM-9630-DX)
- YHM Forearm Endcap (YHM-9484-B)
- YHM Hooded Front Flip Sight Tower w/o bayonet lug (YHM-9395-H)

These uppers were factory assembled by YHM to be compliant with New Jersey's AWB, and feature a demilled front sight base w/ bayonet lug removed as well as a permanently attached muzzle brake / compensator in place of the flash suppressor. The muzzle device is permanently pinned & welded in place on the 14.5" carbine barrel, bringing the total barrel length over 16" making it a civilain legal rifle under ATF regulations.

I'm not looking to profiteer here, just recoup what I spent & help a NJH member avoid a lengthy wait on a factory ordered piece. Asking price is $800.00
Face to face sale prefered (central NJ). Shipping can be arranged for an additional charge to cover expenses.






These YHM uppers are SWEET! [up]

To answer a question that's been asked more than once...


NO FFL or FID CARD required for purchase of an AR upper assembly!

The only part of an AR that is serialized (& requires transfer as a "firearm" ) is the lower receiver.

My only requirement is that buyer be over the age of 18 to purchase (with ID to prove age).
