I absolutely love these enlarged upper assemblies! I built 3 using these and I'm very happy with the price and quality. Perfect fit with my Aero Precision lower assembly!
Very pleased with the quality and price! Beautiful fit!
Worked great in my AR45 build. Most of the other parts were from Stern Defense and I was going to get their 'enlarge port' upper as well but the KAK was much more affordable and I liked the idea of a 458 opening. If you're going to go big then go really big. Please note the upper comes stripped so you'll need to add your own forward assist or plug as well as port door. Regular old mil-spec port doors will work and this upper has a nice feature of having a small hole for your port door spring, so it doesn't stick into the enlarged port opening. Not even the Aero XL had that, and did I mention this is more affordable than the Aero as well? Yea, it's great value. The new Magpul port door didn't fit very well, as in it had some slop/play in it, but I think that's a result of the Magpul port door, not this upper. A standard mil-spec one fit the best. KAK has always been great, would buy again
Tolerance is tight where gas tube enters upper. Had a gas tube that had a wee nib on the outside for some reason. With a low pro barrel nut, no issue. With a strike ind handguard nut, had to lightly file for 13 seconds, makes me feel good that the upper was machined correctly, and wanted to keep redirected gasses, redirected!!
Very neatly modified upper to enable the mammoth shell to extract. I especially liked the tiny burrhole drilled in the receiver to accommodate the ejector door spring. Nicely priced, too.
