If you are looking for a AR10 but on a more affordably level without paying top dollar for a Daniel Defense or a Colt look no further. Review by Anonymous
Just like any company I have read a couple of negative reviews about their products and/or customer service. After doing a little bit more research I decided to go with Aero Precision and would not look back from that. I am pleased that I was able to get a 20inch barrel made out of 4150 steel along with a 15 inch KeyMod handguard. Finding a rifle that is made out of aluminum and not polymer made me very happy. I have made that mistake in the past and will never repeat it. I continue to look forward to the day when Aero Precision has their complete lowers back in stock so I can break this new rifle in.

Excellent Product & Price Review by David
I love this complete upper. The finish and quality are 5 star all the way! The Cerakote finish is flawless and matched my non Aero FDE lower perfectly. The accuracy of the upper is superb. You can bet this won't be the last Aero Precision product I buy. Keep up the great work guys! (Posted on 11/26/2015)
Can't beat this deal high quality complete upper at this price unheard of Review by Vince
I was really happy when I received my package and opened it up to find exactly what I wanted, exactly as explained. Everything on it was flawless , the finish was very nice, no scratches. Love how they integrated the free floating hand guard into the upper so it looks like one solid piece,Pretty awesome. Overall I was very happy with the product . But one thing they could do better on is the packaging. It was wrapped in a few sheets of foam and one thing of bubble wrap, loosely wrapped in a loose box. Other then that everything was awesome I give em 5 stars for quality, appearance, and price. (Posted on 10/3/2015)
