    Now if I have to adjust the front sight up a notch or two, no biggie, but if the receiver isn't machined right... I'll be upset. I won't have anything strattling the receiver, and rail, but the thought of going through figuring out a non-running gun isn't pleasant. It's an Aero Precision receiver, and I did get the correct .210 upper tang MI rail for the DPMS .308 pattern. Anyone had issues like this with either Areo or MI?
    what you're showing is a known "characteristic" of Midwest Industries rails mounted to Aero M5 uppers. it's been like that for years. For exactly that reason, I don't use the MI 308 rails. If you're not going to use an Aero rail, then I prefer to use either the SLR-Rifleworks DPMS-high/SR25 Solo rail, and the UTG Leaper Pro (Made in USA) 15" MTU026SSKB (keymod) or MTU026SSMB (M-LOK) rails for perfect M5 rail-height match-up. The UTG MTU026SSKB/SSKM rails, I get them from ecop! on ebay for about $170-$180 free shipping.

    Well if it's just the rail height, I'm not as worried. I love the rail. I run the same one on my .300 Blackout SBR too. I selected it so I could have this gun set up identical, only in a bigger platform.
    You know what I like best about most people?

    Their dogs.
