Aero Precision is the contracted manufacturing supplier for Armalite?

Not sure about that one, but their .308 uppers are Armalite pattern.

Aero makes "white label" lowers for a lot of other manufacturers. Just get the Aero, their roll mark is cool :)

I'm running one of their complete lowers on my TacSol dedicated .22LR AR. Came brand new with a stanless LPK and an Ace ARF-X stock as a deal on another board, and I couldn't pass it up. It's a NICE piece of kit, and should that lower need a real 5.56 upper, I know it will handle it with no complaints!

I bought a AP lower. The sales guy said the same thing (they make parts for Boeing, and they make stuff for Armalite). I can tell you that the lower has gone together well. Machining seems good. Threads are good. Great price.

A while back, Arnalite was selling monolithic uppers that I'm now seeing labeled as Aero Precision, so not a surprise.

I seem to remember they do stuff for Noveske too, or used to.

Armalite is using Aero Precision lowers for their CA legal series of AR10 & AR15 type rifles.

I have an Armalite SPR Mod 1 upper that uses the COP kit. The upper says Armalite but Aero makes it. The thing shoots like a mad man on crack. I like that it came with the black O Ring on the extractor and will fling brass into mexico.

Where did you find this? I can't locate it on the Armalite website.

Thanks

I've built several Aero/Armalite AR10's. As already said, Aero manufactures for several companies including Armalite. Their AR10 lower is obviously made from Armalite prints, just a different rollmark.

Aero is Aero, Aero is not Armalite.

Yesterday I was told by Aero that they were a OEM manufacturer for Armailite.

Today I talked with Armalite and I was told that Aero makes the lowers for the Aero/Armalite CA rifles. But that Armalite machines its own Armalite lowers and uppers in house.

Does that make sense?

the barrel length written is 20" the barrel length seen is not 20"
I wish they'd bring back the old T uppers. They were cool(er)

I have an Aero, nice set up. Hope they will have the 10A version for sale soon.
