Awesome M5 .308 Stripped Upper Receiver FDE Review by John
First, I want to thank the Aero Precision Shipping Department for the fast shipment of the upper I purchased. I placed my order on 17 Aug and received it today 20 Aug 16, here in Virginia Beach, VA. Secondly, the upper receiver's fit to my AP Lower receiver is so tight one would think I ordered a combo. The cerekote FDE color is perfect and I look forward to finishing my 100% AP 308 build. This upper receiver is another outstanding example of Aero Precision's product line that's well designed and craftsmanship is awesome. I've purchased numerous AP components and parts over the years and I've always been very satisfied. Thanks! It's evident that AP is Semper Fidelis to it's customer. (Posted on 8/20/2016)
M5 .308 FDE stripped upper Review by Mike
This is a pretty good looking upper. I have not finished my build yet. I know what I want but it's got to be on sale, like this upper was ($144 I think) before I buy. That takes time. The color match with the lower is not exact, I d idn't expect it to be, but it is very close, especially with all of the shadows created by the various angles, it is hard to tell from most angles. I am going black with the handguard and a black and FDE butt stock from Hogue, and so the color issue gets even muddier at that point. I don't think I will be looking at the color when pulling the trigger, and I am not the type to really care what others think. I only need to please one person, me. The lower is an 80%; it came out real nice (lower and jig from 80percentarms.com). (Posted on 9/11/2015)
