Awesome Review by Spencer
Installed this in my lower and mounted scope. It is shooting 1" gross without even a box of bullets through it yet. I live it. Great purchase with fear shipping. (Posted on 1/7/2017)
Outstanding upper! Review by justin
I purchased this upper for an SPR build and liked the fact that the barrel is already cut for the Ops inc 12th/ AEM5 suppressor collar. My first trip out to the range went like this:
After following Ballistic Advantage's break in procedure I shot a 10 shot group @100yds using IMI 77gr OTM and was immediately impressed that came in at just under 1 inch. I had several other 5 shot groups @100yds measuring as small as .65"! At 200yds I had multiple 5 shot groups measure right aroUnd 1.5". I can't wait to start ringing this gun out at further distances.

The only reason I gave it 4 stars is the set screw that holds the dust cover rod in place was not installed on my upper, which caused the rod to slide forward and out of the pocket on the rear. No big deal as it didn't impede function and Aero was very prompt at helping me get this resolved. (Posted on 10/27/2016)
Quick and easy to the point period. Review by Willard
In under an hour the build was complete. 20 minutes later using 77 grain match kings I was literally shooting groups under a quarter using lucid Glass at 200m. This is the best by far the best deal you are ever going to find at this price point. I've literally spent twice the amount for much less do yourself a favor stop shopping and buy now (Posted on 8/27/2016)
Really nice complete upper. Review by Joe
Purchased this upper after completing an Aero 16" 223 Wylde build for a friend. At the range it was shooting dime sized groups at 100. This upper did not disappoint either. Great fit and finish. The enhanced upper is really easy to assemble. (Posted on 4/21/2016)
Excellent product Review by Brent
This upper puts 69 grain Matchkings into little tiny groups. Great value! (Posted on 2/3/2016)
Awesome Upper! Review by coyote hunter
After looking a few different websites/brands I saw an add for these guys so i decided to check it out. it was actually below what my "budget" was going to be which was a plus. i got it in and put it on my lower and haven't looked back since. it has been very accurate and good finish. couldnt be happier! p.s after bragging about it at work a buddy i work with ended up buying the exact same upper! cant go wrong.
