Can't beat the quality and price.

Shipping is slow but everything that is good takes time.

They have really great stuff! I unfortunately received a damaged barrel. The RMA process was great, sent me a prepaid box and shipped it out right away. Too bad the barrel is now backordered, i forgot all about it til i saw this thread!

Reason im asking is because I just ordered one from them.
I have one buddy who LOVES his upper (16" standard hand guard, real basic) he got from them. Hes never had any issues
Then I have my cousin who has the MOE edition upper they offer and the first time we went out and shot it it worked great with PMC ammo, now it jams up about every 3 rounds. Hes tried federal,PMC and american eagle ammo and it still jams every 3-4 rounds and he cant seem to figure out why.

Theyre made by Aero Precision. Good to go.

That was my thought and I have an AeroP lower.

If you go with a complete upper, or even a stripped 5.56 upper you shouldn't have any problems with their stuff. Be careful when buying their 308 stuff though, I got a stripped 308 upper from them that has some issues fitting the bolt carrier and charging handle. The channel in the top of the receiver that allows the charging handle and upper portion of the BCG to slide in and out is undersized by about .050".
