FREEDOM ORDNANCE RELEASES NEW 9MM BELT-FED UPPER FOR AR’S & M-16’S
Freedom Ordnance is now releasing their new FM-9 9x19mm Belt-Fed AR-15/M-16 Upper Receiver. The new upper offers a quick change barrel system that is rigid and accurate with no tools required to change barrels. You can literally switch barrels in seconds! The new upper uses Freedom Ordnance’s own proprietary disintegrating 9mm links that are designed especially for the 9mm cartridge, not modified military links. The upper is blow-back operated. The complete unit is machined from billet aluminum and ordnance grade steel. It is heat treated and features QPQ nitride finish on all steel parts to give the system extreme durability. The upper will drop on to any mil-spec AR-15 or M-16 lower receiver. A mag block is dropped into the mag well from the top before putting the upper on, this provides an attachment point for the belt bag and houses the ejector. Without the mag block in, the unit will not function. This is the only “modification” that is done and no tools are required so M-16 lower owners don’t have to modify their precious lowers. It comes standard with the 16.5” barrel and the 11 inch barrel can be ordered as an option. It uses a supplied 150 round belt bag and also comes with 150 links. Extra links can be ordered in bags of 500 or 1000. Watch future issues of SAR for a test and review of this new belt-fed!
