    At least they are standing behind it.

    They are going to look at it at least. If it is the barrel, I can only hope they will replace it in the configuration I sent it in. It was about $200 to trim the barrel to time the $75 muzzle devise so as to not need shims and to weld the muzzle device.

    Jeez. That's expensive. I paid $100 for my KAK value line 10.5" and it's been awesome. My rifle upper came complete from a place called thunder tactical and it's the one with the tight chamber.

    The barrel itself was around $150. A local gunsmith shaved the end of the barrel at the base of the threads so the muzzle break would be timed without having to use shims. Then he welded the brake. That was the $200 part.

    A 10.5" 308? How bad is that to shoot? I thought I was a glutton for punishment by considering a 12.5". what receivers do you have? I have a spare SBA3 brace in FDE and I'm trying to figure out what pistol to build around it. I have pistols in 9mm, 300 blk, and 5.56 so I was considering a 308. I try to not go with exotic calibers simply to keep cost of ammo lower.

    I use a DPMS brake so it's not bad at all. The muzzle blast is ridiculously loud and will blow objects off neighboring tables. Have not accuracy tested it yet... I'm using Tennessee arms Polymer lowers cheap and have been holding up. They even take most parts from an AR15 LPK only needing different takedown pins.

    From Ballistic Advantage: "I have inspected the barrel and the headspace on the barrel is good. It appears that the bolt is slightly out of spec. I can have the barrel and bolt shipped back shortly."

    While I am waiting for the items, I have reached out to Aero Precision to find out what their process would be for warranty issues.

    Got the bcg back and immediately started a ticket online with Aero Precision. That was on a Sunday. On Thursday, I got tired of waiting for them to reply so I called them. They emailed me a shipping label. I mailed the bcg that Friday. It was delivered to them last Thursday. I got an email today stating they got it and would be looking at it. About 3 minuted later I got an email stating they were sending out a replacement bcg.

    A quick update to this issue. I got the new replacement Aero and eagerly tested it out. Same problem. In double checking with Ballistic Advantage about their original findings they offered to get me barrel and bcg and test fire them. If they got the problem, they would try to find a matching bcg that worked. I offered to send them my entire upper and they said sure. They were able to replicate the issue with the Aero but they did not have that issue with their bcg. They offered to switch out the Areo bcg with theirs. Side note, they said Aero makes the BA uppers and lowers but they get the bcg's from a different source. Not wanting to assume anything, I asked if I should buy theirs and try to return the Aero to the vender I originally purchased it from. They said they could switch it out at no charge and either they could try to return the old one or I could try to return the old one. My reply was "I would certainly like it replaced. And if you're OK with sending the old one as well, I can try to return it. That choice really works in my favor but if you're ok with it, I'm ok with it." They replied and said that works and they would ship it out today. I'm have an account with UPS and FedEx so anytime my address shows up on a package, I get a notification. I get one shortly after that. The upper is currently in Longwood, Florida and I should have it on Monday.
