    Fit to my Dreadnought Industries lower very well. Still to early to give it a function review but the 4 test rounds went off without a problem. I will update after a few thousand rounds without cleaning to check the dry running capabilities. And will have a full run down on the build.

    I love this upper. This is my first AR build and matched this with my Arnderson stripped lower and it fit nicely. Then I mounted a Stag Arms 24″ SS bull barrel with a Hogue Free Floating rail that all matched perfectly. I tested feeding with dummy rounds with zero issues. I am so impressed that I will be purchasing an all Anderson RF85 upper and lower setup for a close range M4 style rifle.

    Just received the complete upper rf85 receiver fits my Anderson lower perfectly. I am keeping my build all Anderson and will be ordering an RF 85 barrel next. Will let you know how the first range session.

    The rifle is completed I took it to the range fed it 100+ rounds without a drop of oil it ran perfectly. I took it home and wiped it down it had very little fouling. I cleaned with soap and water as recommended This is a remarkable weapon

    Hi. I am building my first AR, and I was considering purchasing this RF85 complete upper. I wanted to put a WOA 18″ stainless match grade barrel on it, chambered in .223 Wylde. it has the barrel extension already attached, with m4 feed ramp setup. My question is, do you think the bolt that comes with this upper will mate with the barrel to provide proper headspace if I check it with a set of go/no go gauges?

      Yes sir it should

    I bought this RF85 upper a few months ago for my first AR build. Not only did it work perfectly but you should have seen my friends clean it up in a few minutes with soap and H2O. “No lubricants” make a fundamentally messy job quick and easy.

    I’ve been dry lubing my AR’s for years, but these RF85 uppers rock-n-roll! no hassles with lubing and cleaning. if you’re still running a ‘wet’ gun… you’re livin’ in the stone age! 🙂

    Ok guys I have finally finished a decent test on the upper reciver I bought. Heres the buildout.

    anderson ar15 a3 upper recevier w/ bolt and bolt carrier all rf85 treated
    balistic advantage 14.5 inch barrel w/ midlenght gas system
    dreadnaught industries lower
    palmeto state armory lower parts kit
    mission first tactical-minimalist stock
    midwest industries 15inch keymod rail lightweight
    pof trigger
    trijicon rmr 12.9 moa amber triangle
    larue tactical rmr mount LT827
    and magpul back up irons (plastic)
    pws muzzel break
    1200-1300 rounds without lube and zero failures of any kind. All the brass was in a small area.
    Damn thing just freaking runs.
    Gun weights in at under 6.5 lbs.
    the only test i need to run is a water test to see if getting the gun wet will cause problems.
    I highly recommend the RF85 parts for anyone who is looking for the next evolution of the ar15 platform.
    I have one suggestion for anderson. Please make a 14.5 inch barrel with a midlength gas system that is RF85.
    Guys it works like advertised

    Received my RF85 upper fast. After that I ordered the barrel. Once again fast and friendly service. A great product and awesome company. I now have 3 stripped lowers at a great price that looks great. Why would you go anywhere else. A stand up company. Very down to earth company. Love Anderson !!!! Thank you again.

    So nice its unbelievable…The fit and finish of this upper is so great. My brother-in-law was amazed to…He wants to get into his own Anderson Rifle now…another AR convert…It runs without fail every type of round I have tried. Cleanup is quick n easy…Thank you folks at Anderson for the quality and superb customer service. I appreciate you and your superior products.

    Question can the RF85 treated receivers be cerakoted or Hydro dip successfully without hindering the RF85 ability to lubricate? Thank you for your time and the quality of all the Anderson Parts & receivers that I have purchased I strongly recommend Anderson for Quality Parts and receivers

      It will not harm, just do not coat the inside of the parts

    Is it necessary to have an RF85 treated barrel to work in conjunction with the treated BCG upper?

    • Tom Steffner

      No Sir

    Love love this company. Got a question though. I sometimes like to run a cmmg .22 bolt in my AR to cut ammo costs. Will that other bolt cause any damage to the upper since it doesn’t have an rf85 coating? Can that steel bolt be coated in rf85?

    • Michael Johnson

      We do not treat other companies products

    Great customer service! Awesome products! I ordered two RF85 upper receiver only one had firing pin. They sent out missing firing pin and retaining pin from other receiver. I was in shock how quickly it got here. Thanks again Anderson!

    If I purchase an Anderson RF85 treated upper receiver and use an Anderson non RF85 treated lower receiver, will it affect the performance or have issues?

    • Michael Johnson

      No there will be no issues
      The upper you can clean with soap and water and the lower clean like any other AR.
