Building an Aero Precision m5 308 AR semi-auto rifle and the magazine catch button too short? That’s because you need the proprietary Aero Precision M5 Extended Magazine Catch Button or an Aero Precision M5 Lower Parts Kit. The Aero Precision lower parts kit includes the extended magazine catch button.
Aero Precision Extended Magazine Catch Button
So you have that brand new Aero Precision M5 308 AR lower or perhaps even another brand and you notice the magazine catch button is literally hanging by a thread or two after assembling. Aero has solved this with a $5 part (that Brownells should also offer). That part is Aero Precision Product SKU: APRH308185 Aero Precision M5 Extended Magazine Catch Button.
Aero Precision M5 Extended Magazine Catch Button -The Extended Magazine Catch Button is a drop-in replacement for the standard lower receiver magazine catch button. This extended button is longer, allowing it to protrude the proper distance when used with our M5 Lower Receiver.

Aero Precision M5 Extended Magazine Catch Button solves the “magazine catch is too short” problem builders experience when assembling an Aero Precision M5/308 AR lower receiver.
The fancy longer button still wont make up for the wrong catch pad that doesnt retain the magazine . Whats is your fix for that?
Ive bought too kits from you and neither has the correct parts. They are just ar15 parts
It’s concerning that you think you purchased parts from us as we don’t sell anything, never did, never will. I’m not sure why you’re experiencing issues beyond the extended mag button. Personally I buy my parts directly from Aero Precision or Brownells if Aero is out of stock. Check your receipt and see where you bought your LPK’s and contact Aero if there’s a fit issue with your M5. They are great to deal. Good luck.
I’m working on a 308 / 6.5 Creedmoor build. I machined up a 80% arms lower and It too needs this extended catch release button.
