    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.

    It's finished... sort of. What I mean is that it's finished enough that it can be test fired, and played with. I'd still like a LPVO, and a light, but she will shoot. Plans are to take her to the range and do function checks, and zero of the irons soon. The scope on it is an old Nikon M308 that was on my 5.56 for a while. I could use it,but the goal of this gun is actually not as a precision gun, but just a heavier carbine. Sort of a lightweight MBR. I will use the scope to see what kind of groups I can get out of her, but she will get a red dot, or a LPVO. She'll be just irons for a while, as I'm fixing to plunk down money on my first can. But here she is. Finished her off with the Lantac enhanced BCG, a Raptor charging handle, and the JP silent capture spring. (heavy version with extra tuning springs)
