TM 308 Platform

How our TM 308’s start

Updated September 10th, 2019

The Tactical Machining TM 308 lower and upper receiver start as a solid billet of 7075-T651. The billet for the lower weighs around nine pounds and the billet for the upper weighs around six pounds. Our billets come from one of the leading metal suppliers in the United States, each order is certified so we can ensure that the material is of the same quality and strength with each batch.

Machining Process

Before being placed on the machine each billet is verified that it is the correct size so nothing comes up short. Each billet is placed on one of our HAAS machining centers and it fully machines the part. The magwell is very carefully machined on the milling machine as well, providing extremely accurate tolerances. When the parts come off of the machine we check each part for accuracy and remove any sharp edges or burrs from the machining process making the product as smooth as possible. The products are then coated with mil-spec hard coat anodizing and are ready for shipment.

Part Compatability

The TM 308 lower and upper receiver are designed to be used with the DPMS parts. There are no standards in the .308 world but we tried to make as many parts as possible available for the consumers.

    I have your TM 308 lower. I wanted to make sure the Aero Precision M5 Barreled Upper .308, Aero Precision M5 308 Lower Parts Kit, and Aero M5 BCG would work for my AR-10 build.

    Thanks.

      Everything except the takedown pin and pivot pin should work just fine with that setup. As long as it is the TM 308 and not the TM-10.2

    I have a jig from Blitzkrieg tactical for the DMPS style 308 lower. Will it work on your TM308 lower?

    1. Darren Peters answers Nov 4, 2019

      I have not used or seen the jig from Blitzkreig Tactical but if it appears that it is designed for the LR308 platform and should work with no problems.

    What drop-in trigger would you recommend for the TM 308. I was looking at using a POF drop-in trigger.

    I assume if I use your takedown pin and pivot pin from your website I should have no problems using the Aero Precision M5 Barreled Upper .308 and Aero Precision M5 308 Lower Parts Kit. Is that correct?

    1. Darren Peters answers Oct 16, 2019

      Almost any drop in trigger should work fine, that is personal preference. You're correct in stating the Aero upper will work just fine as long as you're using our pins. If you have any issues do not hesitate to call.
