Are you attaching this handguard to a standard threaded upper receiver?
Make sure to select "Yes" under the BAR Barrel Nut option above (shims included). Our handguards use the BAR interface and do not work with a standard barrel nut. If you are using our M4E1 Enhanced Upper Receiver, no additional pieces are needed. Purchased with a handguard, the BAR Barrel Nut is $20 ($40 when sold separately).

*Please note - This handguard is specific to the AR15/M4E1 platform. It is not compatible with the M5 .308/M5E1 platform.

Purchased this to go with my Special Edition: Freedom set from Aero Precision. Everything lines up nice and makes for a sweet looking build. Followed the directions and had no problems getting the nut timed. Looking forward to doing more with Aero Precision products! (Posted on 5/14/2017)
I've installed 3; can't get enough Review by Chris Cuomo

I realized I hadn't written a review after putting 3 of these (2x12", 1x15") M-Lok, black, free float tubes on AR-15s. At first I hated the BAR Barrel nut, because my standard Chinese AR-15 barrel wrench didn't quite line up 3 holes, so I had to use 2, and like another reviewer said, it started to bulge the index holes in the nut. I got it installed, but it wasn't fun. However, once I started using an MI barrel nut wrench, it lines up perfectly, it doesn't bulge the holes, and I'm able to put a lot of foot pounds on my barrel nut when I use a cheater bar. Now, other than the BAR barrel nut (which you won't use on an M4E1 Enhanced upper), there is not much to complain about this free float tube. I also noted that the keymod version only has 7 mounting surfaces, because the 12 o'clock doesn't have keymod holes. The M-lok is once again superior. Great product. One warning; even though there's no full rail on top, these weigh more than the other Aero Hand guards in the same length; probably because there is more material to accommodate for the 8 mounting surfaces. So if you're going for light-as-possible, buy one of the more expensive Aero Handguards, not the Quantum. (Posted on 4/1/2017)
99% perfect Review by Kevin

As everyone here states, this is an excellent piece of hardware. I have one minor issue with it that may be of concern to potential buyers. I tried to mount a GEN2 MBUS and the release lever on the MBUS will interfere with the handguard and will not "flip Up". I resolved this issue in 5 minutes by carefully relieving the inside under MBUS release lever about .025" with a file. (Posted on 3/16/2017)

I've always considered a Free Float Handgaurd but didn't want to fork over $200 for one. Order this one cause I have an Aero Lower and it has held up nicely. Over the handgaurd itself is great. The barrel Nut not so pleased with. I had to exchange Armorers wrench 3 times to get the one that matches the hope pattern. Once I did find one, the outter edge of the tool holes started to bulge out and I was afraid I was going to break it. Then to get the handgaurd on, I had to sand down where the holes outter edge where it started to bulge and even then it was tough to get the handgaurd to line up. All and all a great product for the price. So for that I gave Quality a 3. My lower receiver was a 5 all across the board. (Posted on 3/5/2017)
A great value Review by Andrew

Bought one of the 7" handguards and an enhanced upper to use on an 8" .300bo sbr, and I'm very impressed with both of them. They fit together nice and tight and lockup securely while staying very light. My only complaint is some of the screw holes on the upper don't quit match up with the ones on the handguard, it isn't really an issue as you can still install the screws but it means you heave to work at keeping them from cross threading when you start tightening then.

Awesome hand guard with a sleek design. The BAR nut installed easily on my AP upper. Aligned perfectly at 50 lbs torque, no shims. Thanks AP (Posted on 12/30/2016)

Received my handguard in good time. Ordered it with the barrel nut. Found that the nut had been damaged, maybe in shipping or from Aero. Called them and they took care of me. A+ (Posted on 12/27/2016)
Does not fit Superlative Arms piston block Review by Andrew

Handguard looks and feels great, comes with shims for proper alignment. However it is too narrow to fit the piston block of a Superlative Arms gas piston system. (Posted on 9/9/2016)

I ordered a 12" BLEM for my pistol build and USPS lost it, but Aero took care of me by shipping out an unblemished replacement right away. It's the perfect size for my 10.5" pistol with a 3.25" flash can installed. A Magpul front MBUS does fit on the rail section, but has to be installed in the up position as the rail section fits too tightly to the rail to allow the release tab to operate. With a few mins of work with a Dremel, file, or razor knife you can shave the insides of the MBUS release tabs down to clear and it will function perfectly. (Posted on 9/3/2016)

This rail looks great and feels great. Zero problems with the install. I bought the 15" BLEM, I had to look very hard to find the imperfections. Thank you AERO for quality products. (Posted on 7/20/2016)
