My AP has been 100% reliable but I have to admit I'm not finding the .300 barrel to be very accurate.

Aero makes solid mid-tier stuff. No issues so far. I have heard their AR10 lowers/uppers aren't quite DPMS pattern and can have compatibility issues with other brands.

I think their barrels are made by Ballistic Advantage. Decent, but not quite up there with Krieger or Criterion.

Man I have to test again, but the group's at 50y looked awful. I still ring steel at 100 easily, but I'm hitting about 50% less at 200 compared to my .223, which isn't the most accurate barrel either.

I still love the gun though. Accuracy wasn't my top priority for this.

The only thing I noticed was that the front pivot pins were different. (DPMS pin is too short for the M5 lower)

This popped up and meant to ask. Do you have lapping tools/supplies you recommend? I've got several uppers I'd like to do in one sitting so they are ready to roll.

If you are nearby, you're welcome to slide over and get them lapped one day.

Very generous of you. I'm in Ijamsville so not far. I'll definitely let you know when I can escape from home for a bit.

Thanks so much sir!
