What is the profile of the barrel underneath the handguard. Is it a lightweight, pencil barrel?
Brian D on Aug 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It’s tapered but not as thin as pencil. It looks just like my M4 barrel under the handguard. It’s pretty light weight fully assembled on my pistol.
Is barrel made by FN?
Joe G on Jun 25, 2018
Who makes these barrels? Alot of ppl would like to know how they compare to the fn chf ones
Joshua g on Aug 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: PSA makes these, so far everything has been outstanding and you will have no issues. Just purchase one and enjoy the quality, and the savings
What are the specifications of the BCG that is included with this upper?
edgar r on Jun 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Phosphate M16 bcg with bolt marked MPI. Cycles fine in my pistol build with a standard pistol KAK buffer tube. I was hoping for annitride one but this works problem free. If it works reliably for the military I should be happy with it for my plinker.

Pretty much perfect besides a slightly canted, front site post.
I turned this upper into my mk18 eod inspired build, my front sight it canted as well slightly to the left, now I would normally complain since I only paid 169 for the upper I was not expecting perfection I run a eotech 553 forgot the nsn number any way I sighted it in to my eotech so the kinda canted fsp doesn’t bother me I’m going to replace it eventually I’d give this 5 stars if the sight didn’t come canted otherwise great upper for the price specially for budget build pistols or sbrs this upper sits on my form1 sbr aci lower, compared to my ddmk18 factory sbr form4 it’s shoots just as well besides the ddmk18 has a CFH barrel from dd the Daniel winds hands down but that is what you get when paying a pretty penny for a sbr, say then to a psa of course with guns and mostly everything else you pay for what you get at the price I paid for this upper a slightly canted front sight is what you get. If it was just canted a lil more it would have been sent back for repairs, instead I’m going to install a arms flip up front sight for a lil more detail on this mk18 eod clonish thing. And yes I should have form ones my 6920 lower and not the andro Corp industries lower
Eo tech 553, vltor casv el, tango down toward grip, psa 10.5” upper, sure fire 3 prong flash hider.
Same as above sometimes surefire warden is used, sometimes a sure fire socom 5.56 suppressor

Fun... so much fun..
I used to be so negative on the AR pistol until the braces came out. I've built several AR pistols, SBRs, using these PSA uppers, one currently sits atop a registered full-auto lower I use for ammo testing and has very high round counts at demo days. I wish the 11.5" size was a little more common, but this is an acceptable substitute.

Its a short upper with a long distance surprise.
facts first. this upper is built for the closest targets you can find. but if you can find targets that are further than that. then pull the trigger of whatever lower you have strapped to it, and you'll understand what i'm babbling about. i fired my first 20 shots with this short setup and i wouldn't dare to ask for better results. i was so excited that i forgot to check where my brass fell. lol

check the photos.. mine is built with the magpul SL carbine length hand guard. you wont be disappointed

Love psa process and parts but assemblers need to do better.
Love it but waited almost 2 weeks for it to arrive and it came with canted front sight. 1 week to mail back and 15 business day turnaround. still waiting for repair or replacement. I ordered two uppers and both were severely canted.

Another Fine Upper
This is my 3rd or 4th complete upper from PSA, I have quite a few barrel lengths covered now. Not one of them had any issues, quality was top notch. This one, naturally, will be made into a pistol as I don't want to go through the SBR hassle.

Buy with confidence !
