Beautiful Fit and Finish!
PSA calls it a "blem" but I went over it with a fine tooth comb and could not find any imperfections! Very nice.

Good entry level rifle
Upper and lower fitment is a little more loose than I'd like, even when matched up with a PSA lower, also wished it came in different rate of twist options. Still a good budget entry level rifle.

We bought two of these uppers. After we built them one of them kept getting a double lock. (Wouldn’t extract the spent shell and tried to load one behind it. ) the extractor on both bolts was kind of rounded, almost worn looking. We returned that bolt carrier group and are waiting for the return. The other gun has been pretty good, it has jammed a few times(same as the other gun) but is much more reliable. The only thing I could see that might be the problem on both of these is the bolt edges are not as crisp as on other guns. Specifically the extractor itself.

GREAT COMPANY! don't think twice
This middy kit kicks ass. Blemish.....what blemish ? My only complaint was they forgot bolt catch detent, but they sent it out pretty quick. The rifle is great and I've been running exclusively steel ammo without any type of failures. About a 2moa shooter. Get one today. Total rifle cost: $394.00.

Every coin has two sides
Well let's start with the heads side of the Palmetto coin shall we? I had been searching for an AR Upper kit for awhile and when I found the Palmetto offering of a "BLEM" for $319.00 plus shipping which brought my total to roughly $336.00 delivered I figured I wouldn't find anything at a lower price so I spent 1/3 of my monthly Social Security Income and ordered the kit. It arrive on time and was packaged in a way that made assembly easy and straight forward. I never detected anything that could be construed as a "BLEM" during assembly. The unit operates properly and as expected. Accuracy is superb and I couldn't be happier with my PALMETTO AR15 "BLEM" build.

Now let's flip the PALMETTO Coin shall we? I am not as happy with this side of the coin. As I was building my "BLEM" I received an E-mail notice from PALMETTO that advertised the same kit only it was SKU 507279 not 507279B as I had oredered. And the kicker was this "UN-BLEMISHED" unit, (The "B" obviously denotes the blemished unit from the un-blemished unit), was being offered at $299.00 SHIPPED!

Now I am not one to leave money on the table and especially when I live on a small Social Security Income to begin with, so I sent an E-mail to PALMETTO Customer Service explaining the issue in basically the same words I have used here, along with the statement that I could buy allot of 5.56 Ammo with $36.00. And I would have received an UN-BLEMISHED unit to boot!

As of today's date I have yet to hear back from PALMETTO Customer Service in regards to this matter, yet today I did receive an E-mail requesting me to "RATE" my purchase.

Well on one side of the coin, (The actual unit), it is GREAT and on the other side of the coin, (The deal), Not So Great! And everyone knows the old saying, Money talks and _ _ walks.

I am thinking of building a 6.5 Creed or a 308 next. I wonder where I will find the best deal on that unit?
The Gophers aren't too happy either!

Quality kit
Everything was as it should be, good fit and finish. It all went together nicely. As far as the blemish I couldn’t find anything at all on it, not sure if all the kits will be minor to none but mine definitely was. I’ve put a few hundred rounds through it in the last couple weeks with no issues. Hard to beat for the price all in one bundle.

It is a BLEM.
A good price for what it is. With the money you save on this upper you can get it Cerakoted. The Cerakoting will fill in and cover any blemish. A good up grade would be a PSA Nickel Boron BCG and a PSA Premium Charging Handle.
