Ok - thanks. I'll keep monitoring the posts here to see how things are going.

I never found concussion to be the big problem, at least compared to recoil. My Aero 308 has a Faxon pencil barrel in it, and while that makes it delightfully easy to handle, that rifle really pounded on me with a regular carbine buffer and a FH. I remember after I shot it the first time after doing the build, I was like "why is thing so much worse than my Ruger Precision Rifle on my shoulder?"

Now, with the 10.5" AR-308 SBR I'm building out, I expect concussion management to be more of a thing... I'll probably just use an ASR FH and a SiCo Chimera to deal with it. Hard to justify using a brake on something that short, I think it would be simply brutal indoors.

Have had good luck with Aero M5 stuff, but prefer an A5 buffer tube/H3 buffer over the shortened buffers/M4 tube. Some lower parts are proprietary, mainly pins and mag catch button, wish they went with a long mag catch bolt and standard button instead of a long button and standard catch. My 18" Heavy barrel build is a good shooter, runs well suppressed. Really like the ATLAS handguard over the gen 2 though, the gen 2 is huge, but with heavy barrels there isn't enough clearance for the QD swivels on the handguard to clear the barrel. Helped a buddy build a lightweight 16" M5 and really liked it, will probably go that route next. Have an adjustable gas block, 308 has MASSIVE differences in port pressure with different ammo, so you have to adjust it with most ammo changes, or just deal with extra slap in recoil, or some jamming.

UBR gen2 or an A5 setup is definitely an upgrade I'm eying for the Aero M5.
