Default Aero Precision Review, a POSITIVE one.

A while back I acquired a new stripped Aero Precision "Pistol" marked lower. I decided to build an AR pistol using all Aero Precision parts. I waited until there was a good sale and ordered everything direct from them.

Complete Key Mod FF Upper
LPK
BCG
Ambi Charging Handle
Front and Rear Flip-Up sights

The entire assembly went very well, except for the Charging Handle:

Although it was functional, it was very difficult to retract it to lock back the BCG. After some breaking in and additional lubrication, it did not improve. It also began to show premature wear where it was obviously dragging somewhere.

I contacted AP and requested a RMA and either an exchange or refund for that part only. They did not respond right away or send me a RMA, but a replacement CH showed up within a few days. They did not ask for the other part to be returned.

The replacement part dropped in and functioned perfectly. Whatever the issue was with the first one was corrected with the second one. Overall, I was very happy and the AR pistol turned out great.
