For Immediate Release:
The VLTOR MUR-1S has been updated! The MUR (modular upper receiver) is rigid Mil-Spec flat-top upper made to fit all AR15/M16 M4 rifles and carbines. The MUR was developed to give the customer a Mil-Spec correct upper receiver with a thicker wall, making the MUR upper receiver a stronger platform. This more rigid upper receiver will increase accuracy and reliability, while extending the life of the interfacing components. The MUR-1S model comes equipped with a modular shell deflector unit. Up until now, this has been a metal plate with the shell deflector riveted on. We believed that we could improve upon that design. Now the shell deflector comes as one beautifully machined piece. We believe that this improves upon the older design as that it strengthens and gives rigidity to the shell deflector portion and only adds .07oz to the weight of the entire receiver for a total of 8.70 oz. These units are currently shipping out to our backorder queue and will become generally available for new orders directly preceding the backorder queue.
