is It legal with the brace? Or would I need to get a stamp to put the brace on considering it’s a pistol length rifle, I live in the state of Pennsylvania
Meatball on Nov 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: In PA this is not a pistol length rifle. It is a pistol and nothing more or less. It is not a short barrel rifle "sbr" No stamp required. The same laws that govern your glock 19 or smith and wesson 66 govern this pistol.
So this ítem just needs to be assembled and is ready to fire, or does it need more parts to fire?
Abel R on Nov 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Has everything but a stripped lower. The lower will have to be shipped to a FFL. The upper and parts kit will come to your front door.
What is the overall length of the completed pistol?
Anthony G on Dec 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It depends on what notch you set your shockwave blade on the buffer tube. Mine is about halfway and is 28"

Royce H on Jan 8, 2019
What else would I have to purchase to have a working pistol?
Scott F on Jan 26, 2019

does it come with a magazine?
Diego F on Dec 12, 2018

I already have an assembled lower for a full size AR15. Will the assembled upper fit into that? Or do I need to strip it and add all the extra parts that come in this kit?
Achern on Jan 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Be careful, if the lower was recorded as a rifle lower then pursuant to current law it would be an illegal SBR, so when you get your lower from your FFL, it should be listed as a pistol or as a lower receiver, also check your local state laws as well.

What kind of Buffer Tube is on this upper kit? Is it 7075 or 6061? Is it a 6 position or 5 position?
Scott M on Jan 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I don’t know about the metal type but I can tell you it is a commercial spec tube(slightly larger than mil-spec). I just tried to use my Magpul AR-15 armorer wrench to tighten the castle nut and no-can-do! :/ Kind of a pain, I wish it was mil-spec diameter tube.
Which bolt carrier comes with the kit ar 15 or the M16 ?

This is simply a hoot to shoot.
I thought the idea of an AR pistol was rather odd or silly...until I held this in my hands. It just begs to be shot. The Palmetto build is solid. I put an Anderson lower on it which works flawlessly, and changed the grip and trigger guard for Magpul, which I prefer. With the SigSaur Romeo 5 red dot, I was hitting a hand sized rock at 340 yards using both XM 193 and IMI 77 gr HPBT match. The thinness of the blade against your shoulder isn't a problem.
I added a SigSaur Romeo 5 red dot, and some Magpul bits, as well as an S2Delta sling.

Very good
It’s good. This is the first AR pistol/rifle that I have built. 500-600 rounds no issues.
Will definitely buy from PSA again

Great deal
Classic style and a great deal. It would be a 5 but I’m not a fan of the shockwave blade.

Quality that far exceeded my expectations! Especially for the price!!
So far 5 stars, without yet having chance to range test. Parts, finish, and build quality all exceeded my expectations for the price. Once PSA finished processing order, I received it like 4 days later, even with a holiday! If you're thinking about going AR pistol build/route, you can't go wrong with PSA! Great service too! Will recommend to friends and will be making more purchases!

buy this pistol!
Bought it as a truck gun and now it’s my go to, it eats all that I feed it be it brass or steel! Currently have about 800 assorted brass and 1000 62gr wolf steel with zero failures. I give her a bath after each trip, highest in between cleanings was about 450-500rds of straight suppressed work. Don’t get me wrong the pistol was DIRRRTY, but it just kept sending hate and discontent down range. Firing 62gr brass the ejection pattern is pretty close to 4:00. My father bought the free float model 10.5in pistol and both have now made us lifelong PSA customers.
