Crowdfunding seems to be all the rage these days, especially with AR-15 80% lower receivers. What’s crowdfunding you ask? It’s pretty much a way for companies to build capital to help fund a new product, with regular folks from the internet as backers of these projects. There have already been a number of AR lowers on RocketHub over the past few months, but now it looks like AR-15 uppers are the next thing for gun crowd sourcing projects. Northwest Precision is offering backers stripped 7075 aluminum AR-15 uppers starting at $35 for a non-anodized version and $40 for a black anodized version. According to Northwest Precision you’ll get your upper even if they don’t reach their goal of $20,000. So if you have a new AR-15 build in the works, or if like me you’ve already funded a few 80% lowers, this new crowdsourcing campaign might be worth a shot if you’re looking for a budget priced stripped upper.
