Get More Color Choices with the Aero Precision Lower Gen 2 X15

Today we’ll discuss the different colors of the Aero Precision Gen 2 X15 Platform. While Aero Precision recently came out with “Sniper Grey” Cerakote color, there are additional Aero lower receiver colors available for the Gen 2 platforms.

Buy a stripped lower receiver or receiver set?

People often mix and match their Aero lowers with another company’s upper receiver. That’s great – that’s what the upper tension screw is for – the correct component interface.

However, the best value is with the Receiver Sets. These include an assembled upper, stripped lower receiver, and sometimes a trigger guard. It’s a upper and lower receiver set in one.

  • If they do not come with a trigger guard, have no fear. We carry them.

Aero Precision’s manufacturing processes keep their parts machined to mil spec dimensions.

What is a Gen 2 AR15?

Aero Precision Gen 2 improvement include the upper tension screw to fine tune your build (the upper tension screw is standard with all Aero Precision lowers). A tight fit will help you keep your zero and have all your parts working properly.

This allows users to refine their fit with a nylon-tapped tensioning screw in the pistol grip area of the lower receiver.

Also – the Gen 2 X15 has increased magwell flare for easier insertion for magazine changes.

There is also a set screw, which keeps the rear takedown pin in place when changing endplates or buffer kits.
