    Heads Up for Alliance Armament AMP10 Upper for Sale $900

    Not mine.

    I'd recommend getting a Lage upper instead...

    EDITED: I must be confusing this upper with something else and have no first hand knowledge of this product...


    I'd be warry of this upper given the record of egging holes in your registered lower.
    Interesting as a collectors item perhaps but the Lage offering is a much better product.

    I have a amp10 upper never had problems and don't see how it would damage lower.
    But I have the lage upper and it's stayed on my Mac since I got it.
    The amp got put in the lage box and put away.
    I wouldn't sell the amp for 900. I don't sell any uppers
    I just collect them lol

    What’s this you say? Lage’s 10/15 is going to come out soon? Like 2+ years after the waitlist was made? I’m hopeful, and this is some serious news! May I ask when this conversation happened?

    One cool thing about the AMP-10 is that it can use the 36 round stick mags. I wish the Lage could do that.

    Do you mean the 10/31? I haven't talked with him or Jackie about that in a year or two, have they resumed production?

    I have both the weight difference is the main thing. The lage is way lighter and balances out nice.

    If the AMP can egg holes on an M10? I did not know that. That would take a lot of force.

    That's a crazy looking bolt, I haven't seen a picture of it before. I guess the roundness lets it work with dual feed mags?

    Yes dual feed work. The bolt is kinda neat design with a replaceable firing pin. Never noticed any egging but i only ran 2k of ammo through it.

    RE: the pin hole egging, are we sure we're not thinking of the even older Stony Creek Armory upper? They were known for hole egging, IIRC.

    DR, you are likely correct. I have no firsthand experience with these Lage wannabe uppers!

    The Thompson bolt is similar

    My AMP10/9 came with a pin that has nylon inserts where it contacts the lower to prevent that issue.
    The hole egging issue happened with standard uppers too which is why the reinforcing tabs were added to later lowers.
    FYI, it's no big deal anyway and is simple and cheap to fix.

    My AMP 11 has been running for a long time. It was one of the first beta uppers distributed to testers. I was one of them. It’s got well over5K of 9mm through it with no damage, but damn, was it heavy. Since then it has gone on a diet and has lost a bit over half it’s original weight. Still a bit heavy and the ease of mag swaps kinda sucks. You NEED to hold it just right and be dead on. That’s going to change. All I’ll say is that I’ll probably be selling all my drums, coffin mags and a couple hundred 36 rd mags.

    Looks like MP34 bolt head.
