AERO Precision – New Website and a Month of Daily Deals

Posted on November 5th, 2014 by ar15news

AERO Precision just launched a brand new website. The new website is not only easier to navigate but it also does a better job of displaying all of the different types of products AERO Precision now offers such as complete AR-15 Uppers, complete .308 Rifles, etc. On top of the ease of use they have also really added an emphasis on improving the quality of their product photography. When you’re making an investment in AR parts its definitely nice to be able to see just how nice the parts are and get a good sense of the finish, etc. Sadly most firearm companies don’t care enough to take nice pictures of the products they expect you to pay a good amount of money for so this definitely says a lot about AERO Precision’s commitment to offering a quality product and quality experience.

AERO Precision M5 (.308) Complete Rifles

Posted on October 10th, 2014 by ar15news

AERO Precision just released their M5 (.308) Complete Rifles and man are these things sick! These M5 complete rifles are based off of the new AERO Precision .308 forged receivers including the M5E1 upper which features a built in rail mount interface making a very solid setup.

These complete rifles are available with 16″, 18″ and 20″ 4150 CMV barrels and your choice of anodized Black and FDE color receivers and rails. The 16″ models come with a Magpul STR stock while the 18″ and 20″ models will come with the Magpul PRS (Precision Rifle Stock). Starting at just $1,499, this has to be one of the best .308 rifle deals going. 

If you’re looking to step into the .308 rifle ownership club without paying typical .308 prices, take your pick from the image below and then head on over to www.AEROPrecisionUSA.com to put in your order.

AR Pistol Build Details and Pictures

Posted on August 4th, 2014 by ar15news

I recently built a new sexy looking AR Pistol that I’ve been taking pictures of and have gotten quite a few questions about what components I used, why I set it up the way I did and how its running so far. Its been a while since I did a “Build Details” article so I figured since so many people were interested in this build I would do one on it. This article will basically be a run down of the different components as well as an explanation of why I used them if needed.

We’ve all seen some AR Pistols that have extremely short barrels/uppers. I tend to not go shorter than a 10.5″ barrel on mine as it’s short enough to make them more compact without sacrificing a ton of accuracy or velocity. This whole build started out with a mid length AERO Precision COP Upper and Forged Lower. This is the second AR I’ve built with this receiver set and I love them.

THE AR PISTOL UPPER
The Upper, as I mentioned, features an AERO Precision COP mid length upper with a Parallax Tactical TiN BCG, Magpul MBUS Pro sights and Fortis Mfg Hammer charging handle. For the optic I wanted something very small and compact so I went with the Vortex Optics RAZOR and an American Defense Mfg QD mount. The barrel is an ODIN Works 10.5″ .223 Wylde Stainless Steel barrel with a Primary Weapons CQB comp on the end. The combination of a shorter barrel and the CQB comp makes it perfect for a home defense weapon but the ODIN Works barrel definitely holds up to its reputation as a straight shooter and is absolutely capable of hitting longer range targets with ease. I’ll shoot some 100 yard groups soon and do another writeup for you guys on the accuracy of this 10.5″ AR Pistol.

THE AR PISTOL LOWER
The lower for this build is an AERO Precision lower that I bought as a set with the upper for this build. Both were Cerakoted Tungsten for a unique look. So far I’ve added a Battle Arms Development BAD-CASS-SA short throw selector and EPS Pins, Phase 5 Weapon Systems Winter Trigger Guard, Magpul K2 grip and an Impact Weapons Components QD End Plate sling mount. There is a new ALG Defense ACT trigger waiting for it down stairs that I need to install.

Another feature that should be standard on ALL AR Pistols is the combination of a Sig Sauer SB15 Arm Brace and an SB15 specific buffer tube such as the KAK Industry Super Sig Tube or Phase 5 Hex-2.  These buffer tubes push the SB15 further away from the receiver making the setup a bit more comfortable to shoulder (Shouldering the Sig SB15 is legal according to the ATF). For this build I installed the KAK Super Sig Tube and its awesome. You can even get an adjustment kit of rings that you slide on before installing the SB15 to adjust how far back it sits.

You also might notice the MagPod on the magazine. These will be available for purchase very soon!

THE BUSINESS END
The part I get questions about the most is the business end of the upper. Most people seem to really like this setup so here is a pretty detailed look at it. One of the other reasons I like muzzle devices like the CQB comp is that you can put a light right up to the end of the muzzle and not worry so much about it getting damaged in the blast of the rifle or coated in carbon. My setup consists of a Magpul AFG and a Haley Strategic Partners Thorntail Offset Mount with an INFORCE WML mounted on it. The Thorntail Offset Mount is made by Impact Weapons Components for HSP and is an awesome mount for the WML. It has four slots to mount the WML on and can even be mounted cantilevered like mine is.

As you can see the WML is pushed out almost to the tip of the muzzle. Pushing it further forward not only reduces shadowing in the light beam but also gives you a lot more real-estate to put your hand on a shorter rail.

The next few pictures will show you a detailed look at the complete setup and hand position. While using the AFG I like to put my thumb on top of the rail for a solid grip. To activate the light, all you need to do is slide your thumb to the left and the activation button is right there. This is a very effective and comfortable setup.

If you like this light setup and want to put it on your rifle or pistol build, I would recommend checking out www.ImpactWeaponsComponents.com. They have the HSP Thorntail Offset Mount, Magpul AFG grip and INFORCE WML light all in-stock. Plus, if you use the discount code “ar15news” at checkout you’ll save 5% off your entire order. 

This is definitely my favorite AR Pistol build to date. After a few hundred rounds so far I can tell you it runs like a champ and is absolutely a blast to shoot. The bolt holds open on empty mag, no Failure to Eject, no Failure to Feed, etc. Just an all around accurate AR Pistol that I would not hesitate to grab when my life depended on it.

NEW!! AERO Precision .308 Forged Receivers

Posted on June 27th, 2014 by ar15news

If you’re a fan of AERO Precision like we are, you’re going to love what we have to tell you next. We’ve been hearing little bits and pieces about the possibility of AERO Precision releasing their own .308 AR receivers but nobody really knew when that would happen. That is until earlier this week when they released not just their own .308 AR receivers but their own custom forging that looks really awesome. Unlike most .308 AR components, AERO Precision was able to keep the cost to basically what you would pay for regular 5.56 AR receivers. The new AERO Precision .308 AR receivers are available separately or in a complete Upper and Lower set. If you’re thinking about building a .308 rifle, this is an awesome, cost effective option. I’m personally thinking about doing a sweet all AERO Precision build using this receiver set and their .308 barrel which I think would be sweet. We shall see. Pricing and links are listed below. GeT sOmE!!

Had a nice time sighting in / function testing a couple of my newer AR’s at the range the other day. I typically shoot on private land but bench shooting is a good way to get your guns out, put some rounds through them and make sure they are running good. For the most part there were no issues but any AR builder will tell you it only takes one small issue to throw a monkey wrench in there.

620 CIV Tactical SPR AERO Precision AR Pistol Vortex opticsClick to enlarge

The rifle has an upper built by CIV Tactical using receivers are from Tactical Firearms Solutions. CIV Tactical used their excellent 18″ SPR barrel and Matched Bolt that are known for getting some extremely low sub-MOA results. I used an older Bolt Carrier with the supplied bolt and figured everything would be fine. When the rifle wouldn’t eject a single round I knew there was something going on. Instead of just giving up and using the other AR I brought I decided to try to figure out was the issue was. After trying 2 different lowers, 4 different mags and 2 different types of ammo I decided to try a different BCG. Swapped it out and it ran like a Sewing Machine. I know the Matched Bolt is good as it was test fired with that exact Bolt so it’s pretty obvious I can narrow it down to the Bolt Carrier such as a leaky Gas Key. Looks like I threw in my own monkey wrench.  LoL  

The point is if you think logically through your failures and start eliminating possible issues, you can quite often move past the issues with the rifle and still get in some good trigger time. Oh, and bring some tools and small parts with you when test firing a rifle for the first time.  :)

The rail on the SPR is a Parallax Tactical FFSSR rail. It also has an ATLAS Bipod with ADM mouth and the Stock is the LUTH-AR MBA-1 that you can buy from www.MidwestPX.com. The AR Pistol is all AERO Precision with an Odin Works 10.5″ Barrel, Primary Weapons CQB comp and a KAK Industry Super Sig Tube. Both guns have Vortex Optics…optics.
