Is the Shcokwave blade adjustable?
EricH on Aug 5, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The Shockwave blade is held in by a set screw that you can adjust but have to unscrew each time you adjust it. I prefer the SBA4 or SBA3 which is easier to adjust like most Rifle adjustable stocks. Since I have bought those stocks I have boxed the Shockwave and will end up giving it to a friend.
Is the barrel 4140 or 4150 steel?
Cleanshot on Apr 17, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I’m pretty sure it’s 4140
Can I attached a sling from the stock to the hand guard and if so what style attachments does the hand guard accept? Also if I wanted to leave the A2 front post on and change the current hand guard to a quad rail how long would you recommend the free floating quad rail to be so it doesn’t impead on the A2 front post?
Steven M on Dec 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes you can attach a sling from the rear of the pistol brace to the front sling swivel with a standard sling or use adapters for QD ability. If you wanted to replace the hand guard you can use a regular carbine length quad rail. But you can use m-lok attachments or add mini rails to do basically the same with the MOE hand guard that comes with this pistol kit. There are m-lok attachment points at bottom & both sides.
Is it going to run with GlockMag lower or Coltstyle mag lower or both?
Darian D on Nov 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This is a 5.56 intermediate cartridge pistol kit. Not a pistol caliber kit

My favorite gun now.
Very fast delivery. My first build had a friend help. I have put 100 rounds through this and it worked flawlessly. I love this and would definitely buy again. I highly recommend.

Nice kit with a lot of quality components. The trigger group is very smooth and crisp! The fit between the upper receiver and the lower I used (another brand), was not as tight as I would prefer. There is some side to side play at the front pivot pin but it should not cause any problems. I have been unable to fire the pistol since assembling it, due to flooding at the range I use.
This is my first AR pistol and my first purchase from Palmetto State Armory. Very pleased so far!

I have been really impressed. Only have about a couple hundred rounds through it, but in extreme cold, and it's run 100%.
Accuracy has been very good with 55gr. M193. Great value.
