Add To:

Barrel: Barrel is made for Palmetto State Armory by FN Manufacturing using their proprietary blend of hammer forged chrome molly vanadium that is referred to as "Machine Gun Steel" by virtue of its use in FN's M249 and M240 weapons.   The hammer forging process work hardens the steel, making it more durable.  In addition, the chrome process for the bore allows for a lining almost twice as thick as a standard M16 for enhanced durability.  Chambered in 5.56 NATO, with a 1:7 twist, M4 barrel extension with extended feedramps, and a carbine gas system.   The barrel has an A2 style profile, is mil-spec phosphate coated, and MP/HP tested.  The upper is finished off with an F-marked front sight post with sling swivel, and an A2 flash hider.

Upper: Forged 7075-T6 A3 AR upper is made to MIL-SPECS and hard coat anodized black for durability. Featuring machined T marks, and a mil-spec finish. These uppers are made for us right here in the USA by a mil-spec manufacturer.

Each upper is assembled to order with care, and test fired.  Does not come with bolt carrier group or charging handle.

This has been out of stock for months. I need 2. Is it being discontinued?
J M on Jun 13, 2018
Your specs-description are goofed up. Is the barrel phosphate or FN chrome-lined?
Peter on Jun 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: They are not goofed up, they are correct. The barrel is a Cold Hammer Forged, Chrome Lined Barrel with a Phosphate finish. It's exactly what it says it is.
It’s this a typo? $339.99

Great Price on a Great Upper
I've owned this particular upper for about a year now, and it has been perfect so far. The FN CHF "Machine Gun Steel" barrel with an thicker Chrome lining, makes it even better than "Mil-Spec", IMHO, and at a price lower than the average "Mil-Spec" price. The Barrel along almost make the price worth it. Very accurate for such a short barrel. Running with a "Premium" Mil-Spec BCG from PSA, and attached to a PSA pistol lower (with a brace), it makes for a handy little "package" when going to range, of for Home Defense.

its ok could be better could be worse.
This is a very nice barrel and a decent upper for the price. I just can't believe they have the PSA logo engraved on the receiver in white. Im sick of all my stuff looking like a billboard. PSA would have hit a homerun with this one if they had just used a normal receiver and left it all black. Nice FN barrel but you just see the PSA logo on the side and it ruins it.
Also mine came pretty scuffed up I don't care because its not a safe queen but def not what I expected.
I'd buy another one if it didn't have the PSA logo on it. Instead ill probably just build one.

Worth every Penny
I purchased this upper to top off a PSA lower with SOB stock. 300 rounds later and not one problem. Every part I used for my AR pistol was purchased from PSA. PSA has me hooked I'll be lifetime member and Buyer.

Great SBR Upper
I picked this up for a 5.56 upper for my SBR. The fit and finish is great and it handles all sorts of different ammo without failures. The accuracy has been excellent although I haven't shot it past 100yds yet.
I was waiting for a BCM and they weren't available so I picked this up and am not disappointed. Works great without paying for the name and saved money to get upgrades.

Great upper
Everything about this upper is great. FN marked barrel etc. The only thing I wish was different is I really dont like that the PSA logo is laser etched on the upper receiver. I know that its a small gripe and all the brands are doing it I just hate for my guns to have 10 different laser etchings from rail to upper to etc...

Would purchase over and over
I purchased this upper 13 months ago. I purchased it for a SBR build for work. Got my stamp in. I went and got everything tested zeroed and I'm blown away. First the quality is extremely high. Fit and finish is flawless. I sighted in at the range and the rifle shoots 1.25 moa with hornady 55gr ball ammo. Here is where it's get better. 300 yards. The rifle shot 2.25 moa. I put about 300 rounds through it so far. I honestly would purchase this over and over. I'd really like to look into the 20" upper CHF

Excellent so far!
Received my upper this morning and was very impressed when I finally got hands on! Took the heat shield off to look at the barrel and it was stamped "FNH (logo) HF MP 5.56 NATO 1/7". The front sight base looked like it was canted a little to the right but it was just the handguards messing with me. Overall great product at a great price!

10.5in upper.
I live full-time in a 26 foot RV and build ARs and HKs as a hobby. I needed something that was shorter than my 16 and 20 inch barrel AR but had more penetration then a mp5. so got all the paperwork approved (holy crap) for a SBR $200 tax stamp and purchased a 10 and a half inch barrel for a polymer lower build that I put together just for maneuvering around in my RV a little bit easier. Nice to have something handy that can actually go through car doors while im out camping in the boonies or maneuvering through the even more dangerous Urban Jungles and sh;-)tys I mean cities.

Good Deal
Everything about this upper is very nice. Took the hand guards off to replace with a sweet set of Strike Industries carbine hand guards. With the guards off I noticed the barrel is even marked with the FNH logo! The only other addition to this upper will be replacing the Birdcage flash hider with a classic 3 prong from Rouschsports. If I had to find something wrong the only minor finish imperfection is on the front pivot pin lug probably from function assembly on a lower. But that's being picky and would happen anyway. Definitely recommend. Also functioned on my Anderson lower with KAK pistol kit and brace. Haven't messed with buffer weights yet but will.

I went the SBR route and was dead set on a BCM 11.5" upper. Problem is as usual the one I wanted wasn't in stock and hadn't been for some time. Looked at LMT (which was even more expensive than the BCM) and eventually settled on the PSA since I was done waiting for the other one to come in stock. There's a LOT of people on the web forums that knock PSA at any and every opportunity some legitimate some not. Either way it makes one a tad apprehensive going forward with a product from a manufacture that seems to bring out such strong emotions from people good and bad.

PSA's PTAC line which this upper certainly is NOT a member of seemingly lacks a strong QC methodology and it is with those uppers that many draw there conclusions. That's not to say that and and every ptac is garbage just that there are many instances where someone has had an awful experience with one. For the cheap extra loner rifle as well as the shooter that knows there way around an AR if something were to fail they're great! For newbies that have no idea what they're doing spend a little more and get something you know is going to work.

I make this distinction because as far as I can tell this 10.5 CHF FN upper is as good as any BCM or LMT offering at a price point significantly lower than the other two. Not a knock on them those two brands are awesome but if you're looking for both quality and a value this is it. I've had mine for about seven months now thousands of rounds down the tube and besides being slightly over gassed (an H buffer fixes that no prob) its a first class weapon in my book. Funny enough BCM who are located about forty minutes away from me apparently use the same barrels FN manufactured. And considering you also get some starter hand guards with this upper what are you really paying $100 plus more for? Resale and that's about it...

With the shorter barrels be warned they are louder than sin! Put an obnoxious break on the end to really piss everyone else off on the shooting line it's FUN!!!
