Please Note: If you intend to connect an Aero Precision Handguard to a standard threaded upper receiver, you will need this M5E1 Barrel Nut. You will need to select between an Aero/DPMS threaded barrel nut and an Armalite threaded barrel nut, depending on your upper receiver.
If you have our M5E1 Enhanced Upper Receiver, you do not need this M5E1 Barrel Nut as the barrel nut and rail mounting platform are forged directly on to the upper receiver itself.
