Disappointing purchase
The upper arrived in the box unsecured and was allowed to ride back and forth in the box. This scratched and marred the m lok foregrip. I fired off an email and after a few days thought I worked out a deal for a small "blem credit" from PSA.

But I took it out today and found that the gas block is most likely not aligned correctly and the bolt doesn't cycle properly. I tried it with different BCGs and other lowers to ensure it was a problem with the upper. This was supposed to be an inexpensive build for my girl but now I'm stuck with an upper that I'm going to have to fix myself ship back and hope PSA gets replacements within the next few months (while I buy another upper) or just strike this up as a $350 loss. Overall I'm very disappointed with this purchase.

Engraved with "made in the U.S.A."
I have 2 other psa pencil barrel rifle kits. Very pleased with them but I wanted to venture into the free floated handguard world. At the sale price this is a fantastic way to learn your personal preferences. You can't build something similar for the price point and that's before you consider you're getting a BCG and CH as well.

I'm pretty impressed with the quality of this upper. Everything was lined up properly from the front to the back and the BCG was well lubed. Feels infinitely lighter than my A2 barrel with FSB and Magpul handguards. Accepted MLok attaches perfectly.

Great quality at a good price
If you want a non-SBR lightweight upper then this is it. I fitted this with magpul furniture and bckup flip sights and EOtech on PSA lower. Came from PSA fitted with a "compensated" A2 suppressor with no ports on lower half to help with muzzle flip. Note that the handguards have a small diameter: great for keeping the weight down and for operators with smaller grip. For a lightweight low cost rig this is it.

Great deal on a railed upper!
I purchased this upper for $387 shipped!
On paper this upper looks like a great value. M-lok rail pencil melonite barrel complete w/bcg and charging handle. That's a lot for a little!

The fit and finish is on par and the rail feels solid. This upper is light. The melonite finish on the barrel is nice.

This upper is going on a psa lower and I will update my review as to function when I get to the range.

As of now I am quite pleased with this purchase!

Excellent value.
Got one of these mated to the PSA Defender lower & functions great.

Very lightweight due to the thin barrel the slightest of vertical movement in upper to lower fit & perfect length comfortable free float rail that lets you put iron sight way out front.

Perfect m4 barrel ramp & fitment to accompanying upper receiver cutouts.

Proprietary barrel nut for the rail as to be expected.

Only slight annoyance is rail can rotate 1/4in out of alignment if twisted hard even when tightened down.

For the price ($369 at the time) & performance absolutely no regrets & would purchase again in a second.
