The heart of any good upper is the barrel and Aero hasn't skimped. The 41V50 chrome moly vanadium steel is a popular choice for barrels as it provides exceptional durability and a long service life. A salt bath nitride finish not only looks fantastic, it provides superior corrosion resistance and reduced friction compared to manganese phosphate or hard chrome, but superior accuracy potential as well. Keeping the barrel secure is a proven MIL-SPEC steel compatible with a variety of free-float handguards, keeping the choice in your hands.
There's a ton of barreled uppers on the market, but finding one that ticks all the boxes can be difficult. Wrong BCG, wrong handguard, and who even uses MIL-SPEC charging handles anymore? Stop letting someone else pick for you and take charge of your build with this Aero Precision barreled AR-15 upper receiver. Assembled with a quality barrel and receiver you won't want to replace immediately, this upper assembly gives you full license to choose the handguard, bolt carrier group, and charging handle you actually want.

Ordered to finish an Aero lower. Out of the box the fit and finish look great, very clean, no tool marks.
<br>For those of you who take stock in the little things. The forward assist plunger is not pinned; as shown in the picture; just pressed. No grease on the barrel nut/receiver threads. The barrel is not dimpled for the gas block. No grease on barrel/flash hider threads.
