Good choice for a light, easy to shoot upper. Good quality stainless barrel.
Great price, good quality. Second time using this upper. Both run great.
This is the second one i built using this upper and both work great. Very pleased.

Great platform for my competition AR
I won a PSA full auto AR bolt at the Superstition Mountain Mystery 3-Gun shoot last spring. I purchased a Freedom 1:8 upper and the parts to finish the Anderson lower (I picked that from the prize table at another shoot) I had and have shot it with irons sights since and have done quite well. Here it is at the Rio Salado Black Rifle shoot. I placed 6th overall on this stage hitting the 375 yard shot at the end the 1st try. Thanks for a wonderful product and your support of our shoot.

Worth the price for a budget mid length with nice Magpul handguard
My only complaint is that my upper came from Palmetto with weird white scuffs on one side of the Delta ring. I will not be too gentle with this upper though so I won't complain too much.
I also prefer my older Palmetto uppers before they branded the side of them but they sell their stuff at a fair price I can live with their logo on the side of it...
F marked front sight is great I bolted my Troy rear flip up sight to the back end and I was able to hit (repeatedly) a 18" steel AR500 gong at 120 yards from freestanding position using cheap 55gr solid copper reloaded ammo. I would only call myself an OK shot. This upper isn't a world beater but its a great value for money.
Dinged a star on "Quality" due to scuff marks on the delta ring.

Great Value
This was my first upper for my first build. Overall it has exceeded my expectations. I was a tad worried the SS barrel would look odd but it looks amazing! Love the MOE furniture. Paired with a standard PSA lower I have a lightweight accurate rifle for $550 including rear sight. If you wait for a free shipping sale you could do even better. I can't believe I waited this long to start building AR's! Thank God we have at least 4 more years to play!

Not bad
I bought 2 of these to give as gifts this xmasfrom the initial inspection of this upper and barrel combo they seem very nice for the money. I won't know how well they shoot until after xmas but as of right now very happy with the quality and value of them. The shipping was fast as I ordered them on a Saturday and received them on Wednesday. Hopefully they shoot as well as they look.

Great value but watch out for blems or prior returns
I'd break this down into two areas one great one not so great after having had two sent to me.

Overall value and quality of the parts is outstanding especially when on sale. Both of where Anchor Harvey. Nothing but good to say about the parts that were included.

The not so great is they may have some careless folks putting these together and damage those nice parts. Though mostly cosmetic it says the workmanship is suspect. If these was offered as a parts kit that would be ideal.

As others called out delta rings were damaged and one came with sharpie or some kind of touch up to hide the damage. The rings are so easy really surprised they struggle with that.

The second one had a chip out of top of ejection port and large punched/flattened front site base ring near taper pin larger than 1/4" that went half way thru the ring and peened it. Looks like a prior return.

They were good about sending a return label and offering a refund less shipping. While I dont think I should have to eat the shipping due to bad workmanship they were easy to deal with and quick about the return. It was a bummer. I may wait a couple months after they have cycled thru sending out these damaged returns and try another maybe third time will be the charm.

Too bad the parts were quality and for the sale price would be an awesome value if you get luck enough to get one that was assembled correctly. Unfortunately the workmanship is sloppy and careless on some.
