I'll also note that I've found mag compatibility with the lower to be hit and miss - some of them fit great, others you really have to jam in for them to lock in.

TBH, SR-25 magazines are probably more sensible, especially considering no LRBHO with G3 mags, but the thought of yet another kind of magazine to manage really was not appealing.

I still have quite a few G3 mags at home, plus they're $3 a pop. I bought 35 of them back when they were $0.99 each for my CETME. CMMG took so long to actually get these out I forgot about them.

Finally got mine assembled. No foot, but my cat bender decided to get in on the picture

This thread hasn't been touched in over a year. My Robbie Leonard inspired background check sent me home with a stripped Aero Precision upper and lower kit, and I have no idea what to do with it

How about a little pictorial inspiration

Put this together a couple months ago. 18" BA heavy/fluted, Aero M5 upper/lower, SA adjustable gas, Griffin hammer comp brake/mount, 15" ATLAS M-lok rail, Aero kit, AR gold trigger, Radian raptor/talon, UBR/2 stock, Vortex PST II 1-6. Wanted something that was capable on targets out to 600 yards, but wasn't so large and unweildy that it couldn't serve as a Heavy metal 3 gun rifle. Ended up at 12# unloaded(about average for AR308 with optic), but balances well despite the heavy barrel. The Vortex does surprisingly well despite the relatively low magnification, have only had it out to 400yds so far, but no problem making quick hits on 12" plates, the fine reticle and extremely clean and crisp image work much better than I thought they would, and are really good and fast close in. The UBR stock includes an A5 length buffer tube, which allows you to run standard length M4 buffers(otherwise 308s need short buffers with M4 tubes), and the weight helps offset the heavy barrel. I looked into the Aero gen2 enhanced handguards, but they are huge, the ATLAS setup is awesome, really easy to put on or remove the guard, it's slim, light, and very rigid. Only issue is that the built-in QD sockets are shallow, and a swivel will bottom aggainst the barrel just before locking in, had to make a low-profile swivel to work, but probably not an issue with lighter-profile barrels. The Receivers, guard, bolt, and barrel are all essentially the same brand, and bolted up easily with a good fit. I lapped the upper, but it wasn't really out, bedded the barrel, but the fit was tight, so probably didn't make much of a difference. Headspace is snug, but in-spec, feeds and functions reliably with the mix of 7.62 NATO and 308 commercial ammo and handloads I've tried. Have grouped about 1MOA with my handloads and FGMM, which is more than adequate for it's purpose. As an all around AR308, I'm happy with it.

Monarch Arms is making them now. They also offer an 80% version. They both come with a proprietary upper.
