Custom upper build from Potomac Armory, made originally for federal law enforcement agencies. This is an HRT style short barreled upper receiver is now available for civilians, as a limited edition.
Made with traditional FBI spec'd parts, the FBI upper is similar to that used by HRT and regional FBI SWAT teams. Starting with a premium law-enforcement spec premium forged 7075 M4 upper receiver and premium mil-spec bolt carrier group, the FBI upper receiver group sports a Geissele 10" Mk4 Federal rail in OD Green, with pronounced Picatinny rails at the forward end for tactical attachments. Troy folding M4 back-up iron sights are standard, and the operator can choose a Colt FBI 11.5" heavy profile barrel, or a Colt 11.5" government profile barrel, both with Troy low profile gas block, and a choice of tactical flash hiders from Surefire, BE Meyers and Knights Armament, to support a variety of suppressors.
The Colt FBI barrel is coveted by many collectors, and has Colt markings under the rail. The Colt 11.5" Government profile barrel comes to us with a pinned FSB. We remove the FSB and, prior to installing a Mk12 block, the front pin groove where the front sight was pinned will be chemically blackened. This will be visible if you look real hard.
The FBI URG from Potomac Armory is quite capable, and very versatile. The 11.5" Colt FBI barrel performs very well with fully automatic fire, while the Colt Government profile barrel is quite capable of suppressed or unsuppressed fire.
The Aimpoint T-2 optic is optional, and mounting options offered are a Daniel Defense riser mount (SWAT model) or the Spuhr HRT version.
