The Starting Point for Your Next Custom Rimfire Rifle
The Brownells BRN-22™ Receiver is ready to be the foundation of your custom rimfire rifle build - at price never before seen on a target receiver. Even better, the BRN-22 is fully compatible with the ever-popular Ruger® 10/22®, so you can choose from the vast array of barrels, stocks, triggers, and other custom components for the 10/22® platform.
Each BRN-22™ receiver is precision-machined from 6061 aluminum billet to exacting tolerances. Why machined instead of forged, like most commercial receivers? All you need to do is look inside at the smooth, clean interior to realize that a machined receiver can be held to much tighter tolerances for a precise fit with other parts. After machining, BRN-22™ receivers get a tough matte black Type 2 hardcoat anodized finish (similar to the finishes found on many AR-15 receivers) that blends with most barrel and 10/22® trigger module finishes.
There’s even a pre-drilled cleaning rod hole at the rear of each Brownells BRN-22™ receiver for easy cleaning of the bore from the chamber, the PROPER way to prevent cleaning rod from damage to the muzzle crown that can compromise accuracy.

The Railed BRN-22R has an integral Picatinny top rail for extra security and versatility in scope mounting.

Designed in conjunction with Nodak Spud, the Brownells M16A1 Upper Receiver matches the features of the original M16A1 Receiver. Perfect for a “Retro” or reproduction build, these uppers precisely mirror the original profile. This match is only possible by utilizing forgings with the proper profile built-in.
Features specific to the Brownells M16A1 Upper Receiver are the original A1 profile, with no shell deflector, A1 rear sight housing and proper carry handle contours. The upper starts off as a 7075 T6 aluminum forging, then is machined to mil-spec dimensions. Once machined, the upper is finished with a matte gray or matte black hard anodized finish. The gray finish mimics the original anodizing found on the early rifles. The black finish matches most modern lowers found on the market today, as well as the Brownells BRN-16A1 Lower Receiver sold separately. Upper receiver does NOT have M4 feedramps.
Standard AR-15 components will work perfectly with this upper.
This upper is the proper receiver for the following reproduction builds:
- Model 607
- Model 609 (XM177E1)
- Model 619
- Model 629 (XM177E2)
- Model 639
- Model 651
- Model 653
Upper Receiver is machined & finished to Brownells specification. Nodak Spud does not machine, finish or otherwise manufacture this part. The forging is solely provided to Brownells by Nodak Spud.
