Build Your Own with This No-Forward-Assist-Upper

One of the most popular rifles in use today is the AR15. Its ease of use and its modularity makes it especially popular for those who want to add a customized touch to their weapons. While may people choose to purchase a pre-assembled AR-15, it is simple to make your own. You have the option of selecting all the components to ensure an AR-15 that suits your personal needs. A person whose main reason for purchasing an AR is target practice will have different needs than someone who is planning to use it for paramilitary operations or home defense.

Quality Where It Counts

The Aero AR-15 upper receiver without forward assist is manufactured from high-grade 7075-T6 aluminum and is precision machined to Mil-Spec quality. It is compatible with any Mil-Spec parts and includes M4 feed ramps. This AR upper without forward assist can be mated with one of Aero Precision’s lower receivers for a fit that is both solid and dependable.

The choice of parts you select for your weapon can make or break you. Poorly made and faulty parts will not serve well should you need to use your AR-15 in a self-defense situation. This AR upper without forward assist will help you meet your goals of a rifle you can depend on when it matters most.

  • No FA Uppers

    You just can't go wrong with these no forward assist uppers. If my cartridge doesn't slide into the chamber easily, then I sure don't want to force it! Stoner never had a forward assist on his design. It's unneeded. The price is right on these and they will accept a dust cover. Just what I needed.

  • One of my favorite uppers

    I'm glad Aero makes a slick side upper to pair with the M4E1 lower. Im all about reducing weight any way I can, plus I have no use for forward assist.

  • Great value!

    Great upper at a great price. The finish is a little less black and slightly grey. I tried this on a Spike's Tactical and then a Anderson lower and the color was a closer matched with the ST. Also, the fit was a little better on the ST as well.

    I got the version with the dust cover installed and I am glad I did. One less part to install and it fit perfect.

    Very happy with purchase!

    Well made, nicely finished. Bolt carrier fit is very tight.

    I received one of these from another company that is good to go. The one I received from you guys (not your fault) is too tight internally and my JP LMOS bcg has to be forced in. Currently in for service with Aero.

  • Nice upper but the M4E1 is better

    Aero Precision makes some of the best AR products at very competitive price. the machining is precise, fit and finish is flawless. However, their M4E1 is one of the best upper on the market, it makes installation much easier.

  • Tight Tolerances to Mil-Spec, but T-marks were lacking consistency

    These are very good quality receivers in every respect, dimensions, color, finish and anodizing. Really appreciate Aero's decision to forge a Non-Forward assist version. Glad to see them being more available now. This particular upper, however, had an issue with the numbered T-Markings on the top rail. They were faded out, some were bright, crisp, others were almost unreadable. I really don't care if my upper has these markings or not...but if your going to put them on, at least make them all the same. I purchased 2 of these (this one from Wing Tactical) and the other one was perfectly done. So it just slipped through inspection I guess. Not an issue with the whole product line I'm sure. Anyways..a minor annoyance.

    Also, just a heads-up.: The Ejection port is slightly different on these. It seems there is less clearance between the port cover pivot pin hole and the receiver. I had to remove some material from a Strike Industries port cover in this area when I tried to install it. It would rub and bind up a little, and not flip open freely.

  • Great product!

    Best price online, and a great quality upper receiver! Used it for my PCC 9mm ar build and came out great! Fast shipping for wing tactical and great finish from aero.

  • Quality Product at a Quality Price

    AeroPrecision products never fail to impress me. My build I'm working on right now is centered completely on an Aero upper and lower, and I have complete faith in it at all times. Great products, and affordable for anyone who's interested.
