VLTOR Weapon Systems – An Update On The MUR-1S

MUR-1S New Shell Deflector

VLTOR has announced that they’ve updated the MUR-1S. The Modular Upper Receiver was developed as a MilSpec correct upper receiver with a thicker wall, designed to offer customers a stronger upper receiver. The update to the MUR-1S involves a change on the shell deflector. While the original shell deflector consisted of a metal plate with the shell deflector riveted on, the new shell deflector is a single machined piece. In addition to being an overall stronger design, it adds only .07oz to the weight of the entire receiver.

Packaging of new MUR-1S

The updated units are currently shipping out to VLTOR’s backorder queue and will become generally available for new orders directly preceding the backorder queue.

    Nice to see an upper without a forward assist – a tool which most often makes a minor malfunction worse in the hands of those following military IA drills.

      Me personally, I would be hesitant to buy one without a forward assist. It is very useful after doing a chamber check, though I do agree with you about the malfunction thing.

    What happened to their Bren 10 project?
