  1. The rail came with a gouge in one of the (prongs)? you think this is an issue?
  2. Thanks for everyone’s help. Just need to decide on some optics. So glad I found this place!
  3. ordering these parts.. all okay to fit with my lower? thanks again! https://www.aeroprecisionusa.com/m5-18-308-cmv-complete-upper-atlas-r-one https://www.aeroprecisionusa.com/308-bolt-carrier-group-nib https://www.aeroprecisionusa.com/ar308-ambi-charging-handle
  4. Ok thanks is it made for both 308 and 223 platforms?
  5. Got the buffer tube and stock installed. I think I need a special wrench or something to tighten this nut.
  6. Although the serial number came back nothing found I’m pretty sure it’s post ban. It has no flash hider on it.
  7. How would I know if it’s a pre ban for sure? I know nothing, sorry.
  8. So I ordered the armalite system with the stock and I’m researching complete uppers. When I look at the description it says Low Profile Gas Block and Rifle Length Gas Tube Low Profile Gas Block and Mid-Length Gas Tube Seems to depend on barrel length. Will it matter which one I get? thanks again!
  9. I recently escaped CT and moved to Florida. Thanks for the response! I shot a lot of guns but don’t really know much about them, just handed them to an armor and they came back fixed.
  10. I have an older colt hbar with a heavy barrel and a carry handle. I’m thinking about making it into a carbine. Can I just buy a complete upper from say aero and pop it on? can use my existing bolt correct. thanks
  11. So I went with the Aero lower unit kit. Wasn’t to difficult. Everything seemed to fit except for the grip it’s tight to the receiver except in the area of the tail. The next thing I’m going to buy is the stock, tube and buffer spring. When I watch build videos a lot of the malfunctions during the range test are because of the “buffer spring.” Is there anyway to avoid this? Any recommendations, please link. Looking for an adjustable. Thanks!
  12. Thanks for this. I think I am set now. I will keep you guys posted.
  13. Okay, sorry since I only have the lower high and low profile don’t come into play. I talked to Aero and they said that the tolerances on the older receivers aren’t great and they can’t be sure that the parts won’t fit my receiver. So my plan now is to buy the parts, try them and if they don’t fit buy a stripped Aero receiver from them and get rid of the old DPMS receiver. Does this plan sound good?
  14. Thanks for getting back to me. I guess I’m a bit confused, I read about high and low profile and DPMS made a change it 2010. Is there a way to tell if this is high or low, am I over thinking this? thanks
  15. I just received the parts I need for the lower. I went back and found the paperwork, I should have done this first but with the recent move my stuff was all over the place. I purchased this receiver in March of 2013, based on the pictures can anyone tell if it’s first generation? I just assumed it was. Thanks again!
  16. Sorry I did say empty receiver but I guess it does have some parts.
  17. Thanks again for the help!
  18. Also, are there any good videos or websites that have detailed instructions on installing all the parts in the lower receiver? I’ve never done it before. Any special tools needed? thanks
  19. Okay thanks, is that a good or bad thing?
  20. Thanks everyone for the help!!
  21. Yeah they thought of everything, except banning the mini 14. So with this complete upper and the lower parts someone else posted that’s all I’ll need? Do most people have 16” barrels on the AR 10’s thanks again for the help!!
