Should have came here first. Review by Emurk
This is my first lower and AR build. Read a lot of positive reviews. Went to my local dealer and they had one left so I got it for 225.00 and was very happy about the purchase of my first ever lower. Came home and started to look around at prices for other parts. I came here and saw the price and became a little sad of price difference. But then I realized I was happy to even have it and excepted the price and now I'm just excited to start building on this awesome lower. (Posted on 12/29/2017)
Great Lower Review by Michael
I bought one of these from a local dealer and it was the same price as advertised online. Beautiful piece of machining!! Clearly nobody will complain about a lower price but for the quality of this product it is very reasonable. I bought the matching upper receiver from Aero and it is TIGHT!! So tight that I had to smack it in with the palm of my hand the first few times I dropped it on the lower. The cerakote has rubbed off the pin blocks, revealing shiny aluminum. Luckily its on the inside and only shows when its open. That might bother some people though. When I break it open shotgun style it sticks and doesn't fall open freely on the pivot pin. Keep in mind I have a 20" bull barrel, 15" Aero M-LOK handguard, and beefy muzzle brake on my upper. Im not complaining because I would rather have a tight rifle than a loose one that rattles. It has began to break in over time and isn't as hard open shotgun style. Overall it has made a sweet rifle and is a real nail driver. (Posted on 1/9/2017)
Arron precision is bad ass Review by THOMAS
this is a product and work very well with the upper. (Posted on 9/29/2016)
Great product for the price Review by Eric
Upon inspecting the receiver, I did not notice the "blemish" until I looked harder. I noticed that there were machine marks left on the receiver and could see these under the finish. Definitely something that does not concern me. (Posted on 8/26/2016)
First build Review by jeremy
Really like the lower, matches up great w ap upper and all the intervals.
Only issue was w Magpul Miad had to do some mod work. So keep that in mind. I will be buying another lower from ap very soon.
Oh, ap staff was great in helping me find a solution to the Miad issue. (Posted on 2/15/2016)
Happy Camper Review by James
Great lower receiver. Machining and finish are fantastic. I like having the magazine release screw included; in that regard, I wish the 4-40 set screw was included also, but oh well. Shipping to my FFL was without any complications. I am definitely referring Aero Precision to all my buddies. (Posted on 12/31/2015)
Great quality well finished Review by Bruce
I got a great deal on an upper and lower set at a local dealer and I could not be more pleased with my purchase. The fit is great, however the cerakote doesn't seem to be very durable. I have to admit that I don't have a great deal of experience with cerakote, but this is my only complaint about the product. I would recommend Aero to anyone looking to build an LR308 pattern rifle. They are a great company to deal with thus far. (Posted on 11/5/2015)

Excellent product Review by Brandon
The machining and fit of this product is second to none. The Cerakote is flawless. Aero Precision will be the only company I use in the future for AR builds. (Posted on 7/24/2015)
