This is my AR 10 with a Aero lower.  I have a .223 in a rifle and pistol plus a 300 black out all with Anderson Arms lowers.  The only problem I had with the Anderson lowers is a bad trigger on my first one. They replaced it for free.  Haven't shot the 10 yet.  Waiting.

Nice ARs.  I just finished another lower, yesterday, my first with Aero.  I was impressed with fit and finish and couldn't really note any negatives over other forged lower "brands."

Well, my first build went well insofar as everything is operating smoothly.  Need to mount a scope now and see how well it shoots.  First i had the heavier duty buffer spring that came with my .450bm upper in there, but the best i could get out of adjusting the gas block was for it to eject brass but not chamber the next round.  Put my standard buffer spring in and everythings operating slick as snot.  So the upper, lower, handguard and bcg are all aero precision.  I think the buffer and spring are also, i dont recall for certain.  The handguard is real nice and lightweight, but just barely clears the lowpro gas block.

Sweet look in rifle there Bango.She will serve you well.If you don't mind me asking .Did you buy the parts right from aero or some other place.

I know i bought the handguard straight from aero.  And i think also the gas tube and lower parts kit.  But the stripped lower i believe i ordered from brownells, and the stripped upper i dont recall who i ordered from.  I was out on the boat for 5 weeks and just started ordering all kinds of crap from a bunch of different places, reading how-to stuff the whole time to figure out what all parts and tools i would need.  This was really just a major impulse project.

Let me know next time I have a few places that you can get aero stuff for cheaper than buying from aero . Some company buy so much aero stuff they get discounts and pass it on to the customers.But again sweet look in build .There is something about building yourself that just feels good. :tup: :tup:

I will only use Aero M4E1 Enhanced ( Upper / Lowers ) from now on . The built in trigger guard and set screws instead of roll pins is worth it

Agreed I built 2 aero lowers (blemished lowers but I couldnt find a scratch) and they operate flawlessly

Same here!  All lowers are not created equal.
