    Anyone familiar with Aero Survival Rifle?

    Been fiending for a PCC in .40 or 10mm and came across the Aero which IMO looks nicer than the Just Right Carbines.

    ASRX-CPLT-9445-XXXX-XXXX-3.jpg

    From their site:
    The ASR can be ordered in 9mm, .45 ACP, .40 calibers and the newly available 10mm and .357SIG. The ASR is also coming soon is .22 LR, .22Accessories on the ASR and ASP may vary in style and specs. This includes stocks, pistol grips and buffer tubes. MAG, and .17 HMR. The ASR is equipped with a 4x scope, quick change barrel, and AR collapsible stock*.

    They offer an optional threading service so it seems they could swap for a fixed stock, and then the PG would be the issue. Not sure if they would simply ship without one and not sure if a spur would fit on that receiver (they are using the Tapco SAW grip which is popular on AKs and Saigas) but I would imagine some dremeling would get it done.

    Sure does look nicer than the Just Right carbines. I've heard good things about Aero, but haven't shot one myself.

      These have gotten pretty good reviews. Bruce at Hunters Essentials has had these on order for four months now, and still waiting. It is possible to get them with a Thordsen or spur. I have wanted the 9mm version for awhile now. My sub 2K replacement! I can't wait till they come in. I've actually seen the OD Green one in person..Cool little carbine, and it's a takedown, so that's a plus. In it's original configuration they weigh in at 5 lbs.. I believe the Thordsen may add a little weight to that.

        Thanks! It looked like they could swap the parts, that's good news.

        It too will be my Sub2k replacement but for the .40 glock. It's nice that they come in a variety of pistol calibers now including the 10mm, but yeah, it seems that there's always a wait on these smaller shops. I would love to get one with a fixed Ace skeleton stock and a spur, which should keep the weight down. Please keep me updated if you get one, Thanks.

            I saw the MSRP at around 1,200 so I would imagine it should be lower than that. RetLtMedic do you have an idea what Bruce at HE said he'd be selling them for?

            Again, the big thing for me is the Pistol Caliber Carbines I miss that I can't do in a lower build or 9mm conversion and this has the .40, 10mm, 357Sig and others.

              He did not mention what they would be going for. I did some research about a month ago, and saw some discussion on various boards in other parts of the country mentioning that people were buying them for varying prices from 600- 700 range. Bear in mind this was WITHOUT adding the expense of the Thordsen, and was in the original stock configuration. Also, as we all know, due t supply and demand, EVERYTHING is more expensive in our area.

                  Yeah, there are many 9mm lowers on the market right now including the Lone Wolf, like the Spartan, New Frontier, PSA has one, DSI, a few others all take glock mags and are modeled after the AR platform.

                  What I'm more interested is a pistol caliber carbine other than 9mm. Primarily .40SW or .45ACP. Just Right Carbine has a few, but this Aero has several pistol calibers including 10mm, and .357 Sig, and has a take-down barrel. I don't know of any other options that can be made NY compliant (DSI is developing a .40SW lower, but said it would be a couple years min.)

                    Destro - I believe the lone wolf lowers will take other calibers as well. https://www.lonewolfdist.com/Detail....285845&CAT=288

                      Interesting. It does indeed say:
                      • Receiver accepts Glock magazines 9/40/357/45 GAP only.
                      • Use the magazine and ammo that your 9mm, .357SIG, or .40S&W Glock uses!

                      I can get a .40sw upper for about 700 bucks. Going to have to check it out and see the reviews etc. and price out the total (they note some mags may not drop free, wonder if there any other things to note). Thanks!

                        I believe that is a disclaimer in case the end user is using lower quality magazines. They are nice rifles

                          I never saw this up and personal. Is that a screw on barrel? And how long is gun over all assembled? Looks long to me.

                            It's a take down barrel, so it pops in and turns. A barrel nut holds it in place. Very similar thing on many guns, I have a 9mm Suomi M31 and it's not considered a "take down" but the WWII barrel just twists and pulls out in the same way, no nut on that one even.

                            "The Parkerized 4140 steel 16.25” barrel is secured to the upper receiver using a 3.32” ventilated aluminum barrel nut. A few twists of the nut allows the barrel to be lifted out of the receiver for easy rifle storage or for cleaning."

                            The barrel looks longer because there's no handguard like you would see on an AR, so it's mainly barrel you're seeing up to the receiver. I guess that makes a bit of an optical illusion, cause I agree it looks weird and long.

                              Yea, I think it's the no hand guard giving it the long look. After disassembly I bet it's the same as a pistol caliber AR. Cool looking still!
