Feature-Laden Upper for a "Boringly Accurate" Target Rifle
Aero Precision’s M5E1 6.5 Creedmoor Upper Receiver is ready to be the foundation of a lightweight, tack-driving target rifle. Chambered for the inherently accurate 6.5mm Creedmoor cartridge that’s taking the long-range target shooting community by storm, the M5E1 fits DPMS GEN 1 LR-308 lower receivers and clones and accepts the DPMS-compatible bolt/carrier group and charging handle of your choice. The BCG and charger are omitted because...many target shooters prefer to select them separately. (No need to pay for parts you’re going to replace, right?)
Each M5E1 6.5 Creedmoor Upper Receiver comes with a high-quality 416R stainless steel target barrel with a 1-8" twist to stabilize a variety of popular target bullets. An extra-length gas system slows gas velocity for gentler, more reliable cycling and reduced wear on the gas block, BCG, and receiver. Available in a compact 18" length with a MID-LENGTH gas system; or choose a 20" or 22" lengths for extra bullet velocity and RIFLE-LENGTH gas system.

The M5E1 6.5 Creedmoor Upper Receiver is fitted with Aero Precision’s Gen 2 Enhanced M-LOK Handguard with an uninterrupted, gap-free, full-length Picatinny top rail runs from the rear of the receiver across the entire length of the handguard. There are plenty of M-LOK accessory attachment slots and QD sling swivel sockets at the 3/6/9 o’clock positions. Texture milled into the flats gives you a secure hold and adds to your gun’s unique appearance. The result: a laser-accurate target rifle with a rock-solid accessory mounting platform.
