Q: First, I purchased your 300 BO Upper last year and all I have to say is "AMAZING". It has become my truck rifle since I travel so much. That being said, I would like to order one of your 16" 308 uppers and my question is, what does "Out Of Stock" mean? I know that sounds like a stupid question, however, does it mean you still build them and I can order? I am definitely willing to wait. Your work is outstanding. Thanks, Shawn

Asked by: Shawn McCafferty - 12/26/2023
A: Sorry we missed your question and not answering in a timely manner, but out of stock means one or more components are missing to complete this build. I believe we are waiting on handguards to come back in stock with Aero.

Q: 1. Is the 308 L.P.R. 16" Mid-Length Piston Upper w/ A.P.M-Lok Handguard compatible with the DPMS 308 Lower System? 2. Does the 'included' Buffer Tube include the appropriate Spring, etc.? Thanks, B

Asked by: B - 1/7/2023
A: .308 Piston Upper Guaranteed to Fit Aero Precision M5 .308 Lower but are designed to fit .308 DPMS Patterned Lowers.
Due to Variances between Manufacturers, we can't guarantee a perfect fit with other manufacturers lowers. This comes with only the buffer tube, you would need to purchase the spring and buffer separately.

Q: Your .308 L.P.R. Piston Upper Do You Offer 20in. Or 18in. Barrel? Is This A Aero Precision Upper Receiver? Or Just Aero Handguard? Is It A DPMS L.R.308 Gen 1 Style Upper? Thanks And God Bless.

Asked by: John Marcum - 9/20/2022
A:
Our uppers are built off Aero Precision M5 Upper Receivers,
Designed to fit .308 DPMS Patterned Lowers, we do recommend Aero Precision M5 Lower Receivers. We can do 18" or 20" but they have to meet specifications to fit the gas block so if you have a barrel in mind we would need to review it for compatibility or we can get in some Ballistic Advantage barrel.
