VLTOR MUR-1A Upper Receiver w/Forward Assist

VLTOR's MUR-1A upper receivers are arguably the strongest and most dimensionally correct upper receivers on the market. MUR uppers are forged as opposed to lesser quality billet manufactured uppers. There are many factors that contribute to the MUR being a superior upper receiver.  Although the MUR adheres to mil-spec, its walls are thicker than the standard receiver. The MUR manufacturing process starts with 7075 Aircraft-grade aluminum forging. During the forging process, the MUR is stress relieved, heat treated then subjected to VLTOR's proprietary cryogenic process.  The result is a stronger, more rigid upper receiver which translates into a more accurate weapon. The MUR is the top choice for multi-caliber AR builds including 5.56/.223, 6.8 SPC, 6.5 Grendel, 300 Blackout/Whisper and 204 Ruger. If you are looking for a superior upper receiver without forward assist, please check out the MUR-1S.

  1. Update from Oct. 2013 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Dec 2014

    When I wrote this, I didn't even have it in my hand yet. I had ordered it from SST and got it in two days. The Vltor upper is still flawless after over a year of being installed.

    After completing my build, I took this thing out to see what it could do. Let me tell you that everything, combined with this upper carrying the guts of how the rounds leave the rifle, fires and hits flawlessly and INSANELY accurate. I bought a DD lightweight barrel and the thing is a tack driver. A few times I thought I was missing but I am using a Triji ACOG on a bag with a ST NIB trigger. The whole upper half of the rifle puts them exactly where I want them. This upper is a big part of that. It has also made my rifle the envy of a lot of AR jocks at the range wondering what the hell that thing is.

    I have to strongly reccomend Strong Side Tactical for their highly competitive prices and their unbeatable shipping. They made finding the parts for my rifle very easy in a time when you couldn't even find a firing pin.

  2. OUTSTANDING 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Aug 2014

    I purchased the MUR-1 VLTOR WEAPONS SYSTEM upper receiver w/forward assist on a Monday and received it on Wednesday. 2 days people, 2 days and the shipping was free.
    I put this upper receiver on my Smith and Wesson M&P AR15 Sport.
    The VLTOR fits flush and tight and quite frankly fits better than the S&W Proprietary upper it came with. Outstanding aesthetics and is flat out one of the best uppers out there. Not only for the money but against all upper receivers, PERIOD!!

  3. Outstanding Product as Usual 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Aug 2014

    I have used many of the MUR Uppers for builds. Quality is Top Notch as always. This if the first time I have ordered from SST but I will definitely be back! Shipping was lightning fast and free to boot. Also, SST had the item in stock with a great price which is what drew me there. I am about to order another for a personal build and will get it here as long as they are still in stock.

  7. deserves rave reviews 5 Star Review

  8. The Best Upper Receiver for your build. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Jan 2014

    As of this review, I have several months of waiting before I begin my build.

    I chose this VLTOR MUR1-A stripped upper for a future build. This upper Receiver is Twice as thick as standard M4 uppers. It also has more material in front of the shell deflector.

    So when it comes to operating with your left side, the spent casings will deflect away from your face and not towards it. This helps for left handed shooters, but does not change anything for Right handed shooters, as the ejection port on Most M4 uppers are located on the right side of the upper itself.

    The only time you will see an ejection port on the left side of an upper receiver, is for a dedicated lefty shooter.

    The fit and finish of The MUR1-A is Awesome. Plus the laser engraved Markings really set it apart from the rest.

  9. Great product 5 Star Review

  10. Excited for sure 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Oct 2013

    I don't have the product in my hand yet but it will be here tomorrow. I ordered it yesterday... YESTERDAY! That's some serious speed and customer regard. As for the upper, I am certain it will be excellent. I still have a ways to go but no doubts that anything I have built on this upper will be excellent.
