M5 Upper Receiver Forward assist screw head stripped Review by GARY
I have purchased both AR-15 and two AR-10 receiver sets. The threaded pin for the forward assist is great for assembly, but if the forward assits's Allen head strips, you are left with an expensive paper weight. I believe long term a Roll-pin would be better. (Posted on 2/15/2018)
Good upper for your money Review by The Man
Overall this is a good 308 upper. The quality is top of the line and durable. The only thing I don't like about it is the high profile picatinny rail. The good part is that the upper is dpms compatible the bad part is that it is hard to find High profile handrails since dmps went to low profile uppers along time ago. There are only 3 handguards that are compatible with this high profile dpms gen 1 upper and they are all expensive. I am not saying that this isn't still a deal just letting you know what I had to figure out the hard way. I will buy another in a heart beat. (Posted on 2/10/2016)
Nice Review by Benjamin
I bought my upper and lower from Brownell and got them a little cheaper. The upper unit is very nice but you MUST get the M5 enhanced hand rail that comes with the battle nut the others won't work and ( no) Brownell doesn't sell the correct hand rail for the M5. The last thing is when you order from Aero Precision it is going to take a long time to receive your order, a long time. (Posted on 1/6/2016)
