Geissele Upper Receiver Group, USASOC URG-I "near clone" with pinned flash hider

The US Army Special Operation Command is changing out the M4 upper receivers with this new improved model, which features the Geissele Mk16 DDC rail, and a Daniel Defense 14.5" Government profile mid-length barrel

This model is the Geissele near clone correct upper.  Charlie's has worked closely with Geissele to bring this to market in 2018.  This is the original offering, what we call "new old stock."  Part of the original offering back in 2018 / 2019.

Your choice of the Surefire 4-prong flash hider, or the Surefire 3-prong Warcomp flash hider (Warcomp closed tine available upon request)

Each URGI is fitted with the handguard Geissele designed specifically for USASOC, the MK 16 M-LOK™ Super Modular Rail handguard with a full-length Picatinny top rail and lots of slots for other accessories. T-markings are engraved on the rail but not painted white to help keep the rifle unobtrusive.

This is Geissele factory assembled and but no longer comes in a Geissele factory box, as we tossed those a year ago to clear-up room in our small workshop and warehouse.  If you choose the Surefire 4-prong, it is assembled by Geissele.  If you choose the Warcomp, it will be attached by an outside shop, contracted by Charlie's.  I must tell you, the pin and weld job that Charlie's shop does is better than Bill's, but that is a fight for another day.

Some may remember the original offering from Geissele in 2018 included a 30% off coupon from Surefire for both a SOCOM suppressor and a Surefire flashlight.  Those coupons have expired and are no longer offered.

What, you ask, is the difference between this new old stock URGI and the URGI that Geissele is producing for 2021?  Well, the first thing is that as of this editing in March, 2021, Geissele has not yet shipped any of the newer version of the URGI.  The next difference is that Geissele will not be using the Daniel Defense barrel in the 2021 URGI, and the upper receiver will be made by Geissele.  Aside from that, the two are very similar.  We have a very limited number to offer in new old stock, and when they are gone, they are gone.

Note:  if you select WarComp, we time this as neutral (ports pointed up).  If you want it timed to the starboard side, please make sure to put that in the comments.  Both are correct.  Our gunsmiths prefer ports timed up.

NFA Comment:  The 14.5" barrel is pinned and welded to make the barrel length compliant with the National Firearms Act, and is not a short barreled upper.  Removal of the pinned flash hider will result in the upper being an NFA item, and is also not recommended, as it will cause damage to the threads of the barrel as well.

ITAR warning:  This item may only be purchased and shipped to US Persons within the USA.  This is a military item, which is restricted from export without US Government permission.
