looking to buy myself a stripped upper within the next couple weeks.  Ive shopped around and i cant decide wheather to get the aero precision upper, or spend an extra $20 to get the Mega upper.  Both have the features i need/want.  Id like to have something that matches the finish of my lower as exact as possible, but ive read that its hit and miss.

Im using a JD machine lower, the JD machine uppers ive seen are out of stock.

Why not just wait and get the matching upper?
Your Mag catch doesn't look like it is screwed in all the way.

+1 on waiting for the JD upper. Also I think he has a bullet button...

I just ordered another Aero precision upper for $56 today...stripped blem.  Hard to beat for the price.  I've done three Aero's and all look and fit perfectly.  You could certainly do worse.  It is nice to have matching set though

Yup, i live in caliornia so i have to have a bullet button. Ive had my eye on the JD uppers for a while and not sure if they will be coming back any time soon. Their website has a red notice on the top stating that thier hours were getting cut back. Ill have to call and see if they have any stock left.
If they dont, ill get either the aero or mega.

I got my Buffer tube kit from red barn armory, and received a used (previously staked) endplate and castle nut.  Ive read good reviews from them though.

ETA: contacted customer service and they are correcting the issue.

Mega makes a really nice product. I wouldn't hesitate to buy it if you can't find a JD and you've got an itch to satisfy. Have you also considered the Seekins Precision SP223?

Mega has a great upper, and i would condider the better of two based on the more vigourous Q.C. Cant go wrong with aero either. the cerakote versions are awesome
