AR-15 Pistol Upper 5.56 12″ Diamond KeyMod With Fake Can

(1 customer review)


The “laws” surrounding AR pistols can get a little confusing and are unnecessarily so. When your AR “pistol” is less than 26 inches over all length (OAL), meaning, from the back end of a fully collapsed “pistol brace” or pistol buffer tube to the end of the threads on the barrel (or pinned and welded muzzle device), you can not attach a vertical grip to your handguard. If you do have an OAL of more than 26″ then you are ok to attach a vertical grip. Now introducing the Veriforce AR 15 Pistol Upper 5.56 12″ Diamond KeyMod With Fake Suppressor! This set up achieves the 26″ OAL and also includes the fake suppressor barrel extension that is removable. The 12″ barrel is an excellent choice for a compact set up while still retaining pretty good velocity in the upper 2,000 fps range. Until we can repeal the NFA, get yours today!!



This handguard is made with 6061 aluminum extrusion that we CNC to the meet our strict standards with top quality tooling.  The top rail is Mil-spec, as are the KeyMod slots.  This is a total length of 12” that covers the barrel to the end.  We now use steel barrel nuts that can take greater torque specs while not adding too much weight.  We pride ourselves on quality and safety, so our 12” handguards allow you to properly grip your rifle (or pistol) while still leaving lots of room to mount an angle grip, flashlight, laser, and a variety of accessories.

Our billet upper is made locally in Phoenix, in our facility. We start off from a solid block of 6061 aluminum and CNC it down to spec.  Billet is much harder and more consistent than forged. Forged has a tendency to crack and loosen through wear and tear over time, while billet will last 5x longer than a forged upper.  We now include all of our uppers with super durable billet.  We Type 3 hard coat anodize our aluminum to make it almost has hard as steel. 

Our Barrel nuts are cut from bar stock carpenter 4140 steel and milled out, giving you a better than mil-spec hold for your barrel extension.  We torque our barrel nuts 40-80 lbs onto our uppers, giving no chance of loosening while you shoot.

Our 5.56 (also shoots .223) 12” Pistol nitride barrels are 4150 Chrome Moly Vanadium (ChMV) with a carbine gas system. Chrome, molybdenum, and vanadium are impurities added to the barrels that react positively with the nitriding process with less imperfections and a smoother finish. By not lining our barrels with Chrome, we can keep our smooth bore intact as we do the Nitriding process.  The result is a more accurate barrel.  Our pistol barrels are more accurate than you would think, shooting very accurately at 100 yards!

    Love my AR 15 pistol upper. Shoots .556 like a champ and the fake suppressor is just the cherry on top.
