    What companies are USGI contractors for AR15 upper receiver?

    Hello all, I purchased a flat top AR15 upper receiver from a gunshow today from a group called "AR Bunker" based here in metro Atlanta and the upper receiver I got was listed as being made for Daniel Defense... the seller stated that the same original makers also supply them to rock river arms and other companies, however I did not see any brand labels on the receiver, just a small square imprint on the right side and it had numbers on the rails. It looks real clean when I inspected it, and it fitted very well to the RRA lower.

    What companies are USGI contractors for AR15 upper receiver? At brovocompanies website, they also have some AR15 flat top upper receivers listed as USGI contract sourced and I can't spot a brand or anything that could ID a few on those either when looking on the pics.

    Colt and FN are the current contract producers for the M16 and M4, though other companies have produced the M16 in the past.

    I have an advanced ordnance A3 upper. I did some reading and couldn't find much on them except that they had some government contracts.

    Any idea if they ever contracted to make uppers for the US government?

    I thought LMT (Lewis Machine and Tool) also made contract rifles/parts for the military?

    CMT is said to be one... and from a bit of quick research, they also fabricate for RRA, stag, S&W etc.

    LMT has/had a contract for the little 10.5" barreled carbine that the Navy was/is using. I forget the model number...
