Will .223 work with this upper, or will only 5.56 NATO work?
Nathan C on Oct 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes. .223 works in a 5.56 chamber, however .223 out of a 5.56 chamber is not known for accuracy, hence the creation of .223 Wylde chamber.
Hi, this says it's Nitride but has melonite finish. Can you clarify please?
Stephen P on Nov 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: nitriding is a chemical process that alters the surface metal to make it much harder and more corrosion resistant. The resulting metal finish is sometimes referred to as a “melonite” finish. So, nitride and melonite are sometimes used interchangeably to describe the same thing. There are different methods of nitriding but this provides a general idea.

Andrew R on Dec 3, 2018

Is it California legal?
Manuel C on Oct 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It depends. If you'd like to keep the flash hider, you'll need to make the completed rifle into fixed mag configuration.

If you want a regular mag release, you'll need to ditch the flash hider for a compensator/brake or muzzle nut.

But yes, you can buy this as it is. There's nothing illegal about this product.

Steven H on Nov 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the barrel on my upper was nitride coated. I hope that helps.

Zachary W on Nov 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, compress the delta ring and remove both halves

BLEM PSA 16" Mid Length 5.56 NATO 1:7 Nitride Freedom Upper with BCG and CH - 507281B
Excellent deal. Fit perfectly on my lower. Really nice and shoots well. During and after zeroing, this upper produced 1 inch groups of rounds shooting .556 55 grain ammo.
This is very well made. All I can say is what blemish?
I am very much enjoying this FREEDOM.

Another sweet AR15.
I could not find the “blem.” Looks great. Tight fit with the PSA lower. Very nice quality. Swapped the in a PSA boron BCG for smooth shooting. Shoots as well as my Colt which cost 3X the price.
I guess I may need to loose the bumpstock.
