Very Impressed
I purchased this for my 1st AR build on a budget and I am extremely happy with the performance and quality! I am new to the AR platform and so I cannot tell you anything about MOA or any similar data. What I can share is the upper fits very well to my Anderson Lower and I can't find any blemishes on it. The barrel pit free and smooth (exterior) and the rifling looks very uniform. I have fired under 300 rounds with it to date and I know that is nothing at all. From what I have experienced with it is once the Iron Sights were adjusted the groupings are very tight. I have since added a scope and sighted it in and the groupings are even tighter many hitting the same hole repeatedly. This is both at a bench and standing no bench vises etc. I have only fired it at my local range and I have received many compliments on the groupings and the stainless steel barrel. Once I disclosed how much I paid and where I got it the other shooters were shocked and impressed! My intended purpose for the rifle is mostly plinking and learning. Overall I am very pleased with the Palmetto Full Upper and I have started sourcing out my second build.

This upper is beast
I don't know why people look at psa like they are lower quality stuff i have been dealing with psa since 2012 and have only received top notch parts this upper will not let you down finish is awesome fit is great on a anderson lower and had some nice groups at 50 yards with red dot I have tried other brands of AR stuff and they have done nothing but let me down psa has always come through for me and for that i will buy only from psa.

Buy this upper show it off to you friends they will be jealous and wishing they would have got this besides spending 1 or 2k on some high dollar ar.

Great product high quality & value
I'm so glad I found PSA a few years ago. Consistently great products for a 1/3 cheaper then the competition. This was my first 'build' and was very pleased with this upper. Everything looked great and could tell this was a quality built upper. Mated it with a PSA blem lower and I had a spare PSA BCG and charging handle. All went together smoothly and tight without any issues. At the range it performed flawlessly with all the other PSA parts. Definitely pleased with this upper and entire PSA build. You can't beat what PSA delivers for the price. I just hope they stay around for a long time as there my go to site especially with the weekly deals. Keep it up PSA!

you get what you pay for
Caught this upper assembly on a great sale with free shipping . Took the normal 15 days to receive it nothing new with Palmetto . No real damage dents dings scratches or anything . Has more play mated to all my lowers than any other upper I own including my CHF upper I got from palmetto . Took to the range finally and had horrible grouping with 55gr and 62gr bulk ammo . used some hand loads of 55 62 and 77 and the group came together . put well over 300 rounds of cheap ammo to "break in " . BCG sticking and a lot of FTF and FTE . The more rounds went threw it the less issues happened . Best group was 1.25" at 100 yards with hand loads . Hoping it breaks in more and I can run cheap bulk ammo threw it because that was the plain the whole time with this upper . For now on I will pay little more to get the better quality .

great deal on a great upper!
i mated this upper with a ati omni hybrid lower i aquired cheap. the two went together very well with no play whatsoever. went out today and ran 400 rounds of pmc premium 55 gr.without a hitch. shooting offhand at 50 yards most shots clustered in about 4inches. Can't wait to bench shoot it to see what it will really do. shipping was on schedule and i was impressed with the finish and appearance for the price. nice low budget build. definately will do more buisness with PSA!

Best $200 ever
Guys this is my 2nd PSA upper. My other one is the Premium M4 chrome-lined. I love that gun and have even killed a great buck with it. I've always been abel to shoot MOA with it too. I mounted a flip up rear sight mated this upper to a lower I built with the PSA enhanced polished trigger and went to the range. NO play. Seriously. NONE. And it shipped to AR in less than a week.

I fed it my usual Wolf 62gr. FMJ plinking ammo and some Monarch 55gr. PSP's from my PMAG's. I shot 1.5 MOA with that setup. I know I know. I can't figure out how to upload a picture to the review or I would happily show you the target. It shoots smooth and is so consistent. Never had a flyer. Stainless barrel stayed cool too. Much cooler than my M4 actually. I'm planning to scope this with a Burris Fullfield E1. Then I'll update this review after I shoot that setup. I'll probably free float it at some point too. So glad I found PSA a couple of years ago. Don't listen to the tactical snobs who say you have to spend $2k to get a great or "real" rifle. PSA makes GREAT stuff. I'd trust it if my life depended on it. Thanks PSA.

Great value and great quality
Ordered on 10/21 and received on 10/26. Build quality is great and finish look super nice. Mated to a Colt A2 sporter lower with Franklin BFS trigger. Nice and tight fit no gaps. No problems using 62 grain green tips. I had looked at many uppers before ordering this one. Saved many dollars and still functions like the higher priced ones.
You can't go wrong. Now to decide on what upper I want on my Stag lower.

Somewhat dissapointed
Ordered the mid-length Freedom 1:7 stainless unit in August. Fit was a little loose on an Aero Precision and a Del-ton lower unit. Functions great but the accuracy is lousy. XM193 and M855 will group no better than 8 MOA at 100 yards. My 62 gr Barnes TSX and My 68 grain Hornady match reloads which will shoot 1/2 MOA in my two other ARs will do no better than 6 MOA at 100 yards. Have tried three different optics with same result more like a shotgun pattern. The muzzle crown looks good. I guess I got a POS barrel.

Fast shipping excellent quality
I ordered this on 10-3 got it on 10-5 super fast shipping. Everything was put together very nicely. Perfect finish match for my Anderson lower. Very nice upper for the money. This is my first purchase from PSA but it won't be my last. Thanks
