Very pleased. Review by William
Please note I have not taken to range due to work load. I did however spend MONTHS researching a value/quality/accurate creedmoor upper. This by far always came out on top when doing my homework. For most of us $500+ is a lot to spend so we want to make sure we get a good product for our hard earned money. After receiving (quickly I minghr add) I was even more impressed with the quality. Aero makes great products and probly could charge double and still sell out. I bought the BCG from Aero too. Thanks Aero!!! (Posted on 5/15/2018)
5 STAR COMPANY! Review by R&D Armory LLC
Received on time, unfortunately the upper was damaged in shipping. Called Marcus, he quickly got an arranged shipping label and I returned the upper. They shipped me an entirely new upper and I couldn't be happier with the excellent customer service and workmanship. 5 star product and company! Thanks again! (Posted on 3/20/2017)
