Great complete upper Review by James
Matched this 15 inch M-Lok FDE upper with the M5 lower receiver, and I couldn't be happier! Very solid design. Great fit and finish. Super fast and free delivery! Aero Precision has my future business. (Posted on 12/31/2015)
Excellent upper. Don't cheap out. Review by Christopher
Top quality. Had issues with compatability of parts from other manufatures. Do yourself a favor and buy all Aero parts to complete your upper, mainly the BCG. You'll be sorry if you don't! You're only saving money until you have to re-purchase the same part to replace the junk you bought the first time. (Posted on 12/6/2015)
AP Upper Receiver Review by Steven W
This is my first rifle build and I have put a LOT of research into the build. For the money and quality AP can't be beat. I have read of issues with lower receivers and uppers not meshing well with some companies. too loss or too tight and needing adjustment. AP's uppers and lowers mesh perfect with no adjustments needed. Or so is the case with mine. Thank you AP for all that you do! (Posted on 8/22/2015)
good product Review by justin h
Haven't had a chance to shot with this yet. Due to im still building the rifle slowly. But it definitely makes the rifle look good. Would have given this a 5 star on quality, but since it didnt mesh with my lower, and had to take it to a gun smith. I gave it a 4. Quick shipping, received it in only 3 days as promised with the extra shipping of course. Likely to review again once i get their bcg and charging handle in. (Posted on 7/11/2015)
