I use Aero Precision receiver sets for all of my builds. This is my first 308 build and the Aero Precision upper mated perfectly with the Aero lower like I knew it would. I would definitely recommend this product for anyone building an AR 308. I only use Aero Precision receiver sets. Thank you Optics Planet for fast shipping. Best price online. Will order again from you. Buy with confidence.

I can’t say enough good things about this piece of gear... it is Great!!! I previously purchased a DPMS upper for another build.... an I wish I had the Aero upper on that build... fit function and look of the Aero M5 upper is far superior to DPMS.

The description said this upper was a factory demo but I can't find any wear or handling marks on it. It looks entirely brand new and came in the original Aero precision box. easily $50 less than any other retailer I could find and fits my Aero M5 lower perfectly.

Quick shipping and another excellent product from Aero. I am building a 6.5 Creedmoor and this will be perfect. It is a high quality item and this was the best price I could find in the web. I will continue shopping with optics planet.

I tend to stay with lower cost parts in my AR builds and have always have used various 308 uppers such as Ares Arms in the past. This is my first purchase of the Aero M5 upper and I like it so well that I have 3 more on back order with Optics Planet. Fit and finish are fantastic and I really like the forward assist screw in place of the drift pin.

If you are looking to build your AR10, Aero Precision is the place to start. Unparalleled quality at a budget price. Optics planet makes the deal even sweeter with their rock bottom pricing and fast shipping. A definite win win.

Excellent quality, fits perfectly on cmmg 308 lower. Feels solid, no machine or tooling marks. This upper has the DPMS high profile flat top rail. The finish is a deep dark black like all aero uppers and lowers. Great price

Most cost effective upper receiver in the market! Not only is it great looking, at the best price out there, but it is one quality, solidly constructed upper. I looked everywhere for the best rated, best priced and best looking and I always came back to this upper receiver.

Even though it was a demo this product was flawless and brand new. The upper receiver fit perfectly on my Aero lower but not on my SO lower. These are proprietary so know what you're buying before you purchase it.

Get looking item, this is the second one I have bought. Great price for what it is can't wait to start my build with this. Clean no damage from shipping. Just one thing didn't get any stickers from optics planet or from precision aero �. This upper really worked well with other lowers that I tried it out on!

This upper is reasonably priced and gets the job done. Note that it is the high profile upper rail so not all freefloat handguards will fit. In my case I was building a 16" barreled upper with a 12" handguard so it was no problem. Most newer uppers are low profile especially with super slim guards that are popular. The unit is dimensionally correct and will be ceracoated, so the milspec finish did not have to perfectly match the 80% lower. All in all a good buy.Shipping was fast as always and arrived in good condition. This items comes with the dust cover and a forward assist as the original military units were made.

I was looking everywhere for a good deal on a aero m5 upper and found it here. The free shipping and coupon codeshare are a definite plus. Also the shipping is super fast. Only thing i don’t like is the fedex shipping because they drop it off at the post office and it takes a while to ge there.

I have built a few firearms over the years. A few years ago I learned of Aero Precision. I have used their parts for previous builds and without exception they are high quality parts. I had never used any of their M5 parts before, so I was anxious to see how this would work out. I was very pleased and satisfied with the fit and finish of this product. It lines up perfectly with the M5 hand guard and seems to function very well. Alignment with the lower is also perfect and I love the look of the receivers. They are forged but look nice enough to be billet. I will continue using Aero Precision parts. They are reasonably priced and the quality is always there.
