Like no other upper on Earth…

The Killswitch® of the W.A.R. is built directly into the upper receiver, meaning that you never unshoulder the rifle or use any tools. The adjustment can even be made in the dark. You can quickly and easily switch from suppressed to unsuppressed or leave it in between the two settings to shut “off” the gas to manually cycle the rifle, all while keeping the rifle on your target.

The specific location of the Killswitch not only allows for use with almost every rail system on the market, but it reduces the gas just prior to interfacing with the carrier key. This means that the rifle not only sounds quieter to the shooter’s ear, but it also reduces the wear of the rifle component parts from the reduction of heat and excessive fouling.

When the W.A.R. is in the suppressed mode it virtually eliminates the “blow back” in the shooters face, along with the burning eyes and the choking gas. The design of the W.A.R. allows the gas tube to fully pressurize which can make the rifle “feel” different. Most users say that their rifle feels like is shoots softer and smoother. This is the only upper in the world that delivers all these advantages.


The W.A.R. comes with forward assist, dust cover assembly and proprietary gas tube in either carbine, pistol length or mid length.  The W.A.R. is for use in conjunction only with factory 5.56mm ammunition, a quality 5.56 suppressor, and barrels with a gas port hole size between .084 – .093. The W.A.R. is not for use with .300blk ammunition. Due to the lower pressures of the round, .300 blk ammunition does not cycle reliably in the suppressed setting.

Very happy with my upper. I have contacts and even with safety glasses I could hardly take the gas in my eyes. The WAR is a game changer for me.

There is a huge decrease in blowback. In suppressed, it seems quieter to me when I'm shooting but not to the people around me.  It feels different, kind of tame. It works well for me and I'm happy with it.

It's worth it! I wish I had mine a lot sooner. Just switch it to suppressed, bye bye gas!

Excellent upper blow black is basically gone. Thank you.
