Is the BCG nitride treated or phosphate finished?
Chris P. Bacon on Nov 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: phosphate
Is there an accessory rail on the handgaurd?
J F on Oct 31, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, but the handguard can be replaced with a free float tube and a free float hanguard.
It has the red warning I need a special permit from ATF? Or is it just considered a pistol?
J D on Dec 31, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This is classified as a "pistol," so no tax stamp is needed. The warning is there to remind you that it is only a pistol if built with a pistol brace instead of a buttstock; adding a buttstock to the kit will make it a short barreled rifle, which does require a tax stamp.
How long is this handguard? I want to replace it when I build the kit, and I want to know if it's a carbine length handguard.
Gideon M on Dec 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Description says “carbine gas system”, thus carbine length handguard.
Does this need anything more than a stripped lower to build?
Frank on Nov 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Just a lower and whatever rear sight you want to put on it.
Is the barrel chrome lined?
Cody T on Nov 5, 2018

Angel j on Jan 10, 2019
Do you guys plan on getting this back in gray?
Pmoney on Jan 8, 2019
What else does it need to be complete? Does it just need a stripped lower and magazine?
Noah N on Jan 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, add a stripped lower, magazine, and ammo and you'll have a functional "pistol."
Would this build need to be registered with the ATF as a SBR?
W.Owen on Jan 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER: If you use only the parts that come with this kit, or only use a different pistol brace, it is classified as a pistol. However, if you were to use a rifle buttstock instead of a pistol brace, you will have to get a tax stamp.
Will the BCM polymer Keymod Rail handguard fit this upper?
Mike K on Jan 1, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This upper takes drop in handguards with out much shiching out of parts.... If it's a free float then you have to take it apart down to the barrel nut and replace the a2 front sights.

I just finished one of two
Two weeks ago I finished one of the two that I bought , Magpul Stealth Grey matches the Grey Shockwave Blade perfectly , I mounted a Vortex Sparc Red Dot with a folding Troy Battle Sight behind it , Absolute Co - Witness , At 100 Meters it is deadly accurate and will fire anything from 45 grain .223 Varmint to IMI 5.56X45 77 Grain Hollow Point Razor Core , My new favorite AR Pistol

Best AR pistol kit around
Got the AR pistol kit for myself after I built one for me son...compliments the AR rifle perfectly...added a Romeo laser dot sight and a Magpul rear sight and I was good to go!

Fantastic Kit! Great Quality
This is a fantastic entry level Ar pistol kit, and I couldn't be happier. All you need is a stripped lower receiver and a rear sight of your choice. The only complaint is the flash hider was not timed correctly, but that's minuscule at most. However I ordered it on a Wednesday and received it the following Wednesday. Good Job PSA!!!

Excellent kit, love the high quality!
Excellent kit, the upper fit very precisely to my lower. The fit is the nicest out of all my other ar's. The front sling mount is rubber coated to eliminate noise, very nice! The 10.5 barreled kit has performed perfectly and the ejection functions perfectly. I've seen guys at the range where their ar pistols would not eject commercial ammo yet I have not had a single issue! I would highly suggest this kit.
Thanks Palmetto

Assembled with a PSA MAD DOG MATTIS lower. Has ran flawlessly out of the box. Put on a M&P single point as it’s fairly difficult to be accurate without it if not shouldering it. I did have to grind the top of the adapter down to allow clearance of the charging handle. This is not a PSA issue. The M&P part is just thicker (taller) than the PSA part it replaces and does not allow the charging handle to come back.
With the single point out taught it’s like magic with as good of sight as a rifle.
Next to a 16” 
Shockwave all the way in.

Excellent Pistol Kit
Purchased this kit because of the insanely cheap sales price, and didn’t expect the level of quality that I got. LPK, FCG, & BCG are the same that come with the Freedom kits, all parts fit solid, no wiggle once assembled. I paired this with an Aero lower and replaced the plastic hand guard with a quad rail, made for a nice MK18 Mod 0 clone. Definitely considering buying more of these while I can!
