AERO Precision M4E1 Enhanced Upper Available for Purchase

Posted on May 21st, 2014 by ar15news

Last week we wrote about the new M4E1 Enhanced Upper and Handguards that AERO Precision was coming out with. These new upper feature an integrated mounting system for the new handguards which will make for an absolutely rock solid lock up. I just got word that the new M4E1 uppers are now in-stock and ready to purchase over at

The AR15 weapon system is an ever-evolving and modular platform. That weapon system has now been enhanced by Aero Precision into the new M4E1 platform. The M4E1 upper receiver is precision-machined to our specifications and features M4 feed ramps and handguard mounting platform. The rail mounting surface and barrel nut area provide a much stiffer system than a standard receiver, giving you more accuracy out of your rifle. Lightweight by design, stronger through superior engineering, the M4E1 delivers monolithic accuracy in a lightweight package.


  • Forged from 7075 T6 aluminum
  • Precision machined to M4E1 specs
  • M4 feedramps
  • Matte black hard coat anodized Mil 8625 Type 3 Class 2 or Cerakote coating

NEW!! AERO Precision Billet Enhanced Trigger Guards

Posted on March 4th, 2014 by ar15news

According to the AERO Precision Facebook page they will be releasing a new Billet Trigger Guard very soon. I know over-sized or winter trigger guards aren’t really anything new but there are a couple of things that I think will make this an awesome option. First, 9 out of 10 people right now go with the polymer Magpul MOE trigger guard which is just plastic. This new trigger guard will be CNC machined from aluminum and knowing AERO will have a great fit with a milspec forged lower. Second, the AERO Precision billet trigger guard will be available in Black (anodized) for just $20 and also available Cerakoted in multiple different colors for just $25 to match up with the AERO Precision Cerakoted lowers. I’m picturing a sweet FDE Cerakoted Upper/Lower combo with an FDE Cerakoted trigger guard, etc. Would make for a really great looking setup. These will be available very soon. Keep an eye out on and the AERO Precision Facebook page.

NEW!! 7.5″ Pistol Length AR Nitride Barrel – Just $150

Posted on February 27th, 2014 by ar15news

AERO Precision has been just killing it lately not only with some awesome new products but with the price points they are coming in at. A couple of weeks ago they introduced their 16″ M4 barrel and now are introducing the new 7.5″ Pistol Length barrel which would be great for an SBR or AR Pistol. These aren’t just cheap junk barrels either. These are 4150 CMV (Chrome Moly Vanadium) with a QPQ (aka Nitride or Melonite) coating inside and out which offers great corrosion resistance as well as a more durable barrel lining vs chrome lining. Plus they are HPT (High Pressure Tested) and MPI (Magnetic Particle Inspected) as well. These are the same barrels that AERO Precision is using in their complete uppers. Additional lengths, gas lengths and calibers will be coming this year. If you’re looking for a barrel like this, at just $150, these are a great deal on a quality barrel. Check them out at

NEW!! AERO Precision 16″ M4 5.56 Barrel

Posted on February 14th, 2014 by ar15news

Some of you guys might remember back when AERO Precision was mainly known for their lowers and what was back then an elusive COP Upper. Well, those days seem to be a very distant memory anymore. AERO Precision now is churning out multiple different types of Lowers, Uppers, COP uppers, Scope Mounts, Buffer Tubes, Complete Uppers on a very regular basis and now they are introducing their own 16″ M4 profile 5.56 barrel. These barrels feature a QPQ finish which is another term for Nitride. This gives the barrels much better corrosion resistance so you can even shoot all the corrosive ammo you want. This would make a great barrel for your new upper build and at just $195 with FREE SHIPPING, it won’t break the bank either. These are available for purchase now at

NEW!! AERO Precision Cerakoted Pistol Buffer Tubes

Posted on February 9th, 2014 by ar15news

With the increased wait times with the ATF and the fact that quite a few states don’t allow their residents to own SBR’s, the AR Pistol has seen a surge in popularity lately. More and more people are realizing that an AR Pistol can be a great option for a shorter, more manageable weapon. The main difference between an AR Pistol and an SBR is that an AR Pistol can not accept any type of stock that is meant to rest on the shoulder so the buffer tube is typically a round black tube. Some have pads on them but they’re typically just Black.

The guys at AERO Precision just released their own line of Pistol Buffer Tubes but with one main upgrade, these are available Cerakoted in FDE, OD Green, Burnt Bronze, Titanium and Tungsten. As you can imagine, these would go great on an AR Pistol with FDE or OD Green furniture or if you are going to very popular route and have the rest of gun Cerakoted in one of these colors.

Every once in a while you see something or hear something said that is just so absurd that it goes viral at such a pace that it’s all you see for a week. This is the case with, the obviously ill-informed and now laughingstock of the gun community, Senator Kevin de Leon who recently called an AR-15 that was made with an 80% lower a “Ghost Gun” and said that it “has the ability with a .30 cabiler clip to disperse with 30 bullets within half a second”. This “Ghost Gun” term is now being used 1.5 million times per second at the mere sighting of anything even closely resembling an AR-15 (I can exaggerate too Senator de Leon). 

Last month AERO Precision started offering limited edition lowers starting with their “PEW PEW PEW” lowers which will end on Monday 1/27/14. They now have started taking pre-orders for their new “Ghost Gun” limited edition AR-15 lower receivers which are sure to be a massive hit for AERO Precision. These new lowers actually say “GHOST GUN” right on the magwell and the serial number starts with the word “GHOST”. The selector markings are also pretty cool. These lowers WILL BE anodized. The one in the picture below was the first one off the machines at AERO Precision.

Overall, I thought Senator Kevin de Leon’s speech was awesome. Its always great to see an anti-gunner say something so stupid that it actually increases the number of “Ghost Gun’s” sold. He might even be related to Biden. Lets hope for more awesomeness from Senator de Leon soon. You can order your new “Ghost Gun” AR-15 lower from

Posted on December 20th, 2013 by ar15news

I just saw this deal pop up earlier today and thought it was just too good of a deal to pass up posting about. I’ve already posted about the new “PEW PEW PEW” special edition forged lowers from AERO Precision that are only available through the end of this month. They do nothing different than the standard lowers but say “NO PEW, PEW and PEW PEW PEW” in the selector markings which is awesome! Just now they added a deal where you can pick up a matched stripped forged upper at the same time for just $40 more. AERO Precision receivers are very high quality and are some of my favorite ones to build off of. Grab your matched special edition set now at for just $145.

NEW!! AERO Precision “PEW PEW PEW” Special Edition Lower

Posted on December 13th, 2013 by ar15news

AERO Precision is releasing a really cool special edition lower for the holidays. Instead of the typical Safe, Fire, FA markings on the lower they are using the words “NO PEW, PEW and PEW PEW PEW” which is just a fun variation. Still get the same high quality receiver you come to expect from AERO Precision but a bit different than your buddies. The images below show the lower without anodizing to highlight the text but all of these will come anodized. From what I’ve heard these will not be something that they will keep as a cataloged item but just a short term holiday thing. Get your “PEW PEW PEW” forged lower now at
