So I’ve seen this brand around but never bought anything from them. Always mixed it up with Anderson manufacturing. Any case about a year ago I assembled a rifle using a Aero lower and there were no issues. (Well there was a problem with the Daniel Defense grip but that was my fault). Lately I ordered a few Aero parts and here’s my take on them

Standard upper receiver. No issues. They have a cosmetic blend for $54.99 but does not have the assist or ejection port door.

Quantum M-Lok handguard. This thing is huge. Well an average adult male will have no problems holding it but it’s got at least a centimeter more diameter than a Daniel Defense MFR XS. It attaches to a big honking barrel nut that’s aluminum. Personally I feel that’s the main drawback of this handguard, the barrel nut is $40 separate, $20 when you buy it with a blem handguard (15” for under $72). Aside from the low price what made me give this a shot was that it has 8 sides of M-Lok attachment points. There’s only a rail at the very ends so you can save weight on something that won’t have a bunch of crap attached to it

Low profile gas block. Seems a little overpriced but I figured it wasn’t crap and has two set screws underneath to secure it. My previous experience with gas blocks involved some fine grit sandpaper to wiggle it over the gas port. The aero block slid right down almost too easy. I’ll report more once I actually fire this thing

I have two Aero lowers. Both were blems that I really had to look hard to find the issues. One was a little spot in the anodizing and the other was the roll stamp of their logo wasn't as deep as it normally is.

I built one the other is still in the save.

They are good to go in my opinion.

Aero is the lower that I bought last week. Still waiting for some child support to roll in so I can order the rest of the parts.

I always missed out on the blems that I wanted..

So small update/comparison

I’ve been wanting to replace the quad rail on my riflegear mutt so I decided to give Aero’s Atlas S-one handguard a shot. It’s light as a feather. One thing I didn’t realize is that the 12 o’clock face doesn’t have m-lok slots on it. Only the 3,6 and 9 o’clock faces do. There’s a small rail section at the ends to put some backup sights on but the rifle has glass so no worries. It’s MUCH smaller in girth than the quantum:

The clamping mechanism is quite fancy and should work fine. Here’s how she looks assembled:

I’m excited to shoot her again

What are you doing with the old rail and what length is it? Asking for a friend:anon:
