Aero Precision Releases Long-Awaited .308 Receivers

    Aero Precision has released their long-awaited .308 receivers. The receivers are DPMS (Gen 1)-patterned. Both receivers are machined from forged 7075 t6 aluminum and then mil-spec anodized.


    The upper receiver is notably beefy and has a recessed cut-out for the bolt release. No extra material has been removed for popular “levers” (much to my chagrin). Uppers are available for $135 (stripped) and $155 (assembled). 


    The lower receiver comes pre-threaded for both the bolt release pin and the pin detent hole. Further, it has a integrated enlarged trigger guard and accepts short-throw safety/selectors. The lower is available for $185 and does not currently have an assembled or completed option. A full kit with both receivers is also available for $288 for the bare upper and $306 for the assembled upper (forward assist and dust cover installed).
