Aero Precision has released their new product line collaboration with Thunder Ranch. They are selling complete uppers and complete lowers as well as individual parts. The carbine looks like a solid entry for a “Special Edition” rifle and parts. It looks like a basic Aero Precision build with a few tweaks from the team at TR.
The upper is equipped with standard Aero components such as the Atlas R One rail, a Ballistic Advantage barrel, and an Aero BCG, but removes the forward assist.
The lower is rounded out with an ALG QMS trigger and Magpul furniture and has a weight-reducing cutout around the magazine well.
Seems solid enough…
Now, dear readers, I must regale you with a tale that Clint Smith likely wants to be scrubbed from the internet. He has deleted youtube videos, and it’s existence is acknowledged only in hushed snickers. You see, a few years ago his team produced another, more infamous Thunder Ranch gun…
Functional? The bullets will come out the right way, yes… But it’s still slightly retarded. A precision rifle with a carbine gassed rifle length pencil barrel for almost 3k? Yes. I like the Aero Precision collaboration much more. The parts are way more affordable too. No, I won’t be reviewing one since I pretty much have one in the safe already. Bust out the Dremel and I can build a Thunder Ranch clone so good:
