NFA? SBR? thought I knew what was and wasn’t legal. Seems lots have changed. Without a class III, can I legally buy a shockwave AR with a 10.5” bbl inMissouri?
Djones54 on Oct 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It's a pistol. Not a SBR. Says so in the description. "Pistol Kit."
So all you need for a complete ar pistol is stripped lower receiver?
Charles E on Aug 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: A rear sight is also needed & of course a Stripped Lower Receiver - Some binary triggers & no auto sear is compatible with a "High Shelf" Stripped Lower Receiver. If any of that capability is desirable then get a standard mil spec non "High Shelf" Stripped Lower Receiver.

BEST ANSWER: yes, its in the description
How long is hanguard because will change to one with rails so can purchase horizontal V grip on?
Boonrawd on Dec 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It is a "carbine length hand guard" Any thing for a carbine will work with it
Is the hardware for the lower black or OD green?
Wolf C on Nov 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The lower parts kit is a standard, all black hardware, including the takedown pins, safety, bolt catch, and mag release.
What kind of bolt carrier does it come with?
Bobby on May 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER: A 5.56 bolt carrier duh!
Are there by chance any left handed friendly pistol build kits similar to this?
Tyler on Apr 9, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No , start shooting the right way and you will not have this problem
Will this handle .223 ammo or is it strictly 5.56 ammo only?
Jerry F on Dec 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This 5.56 will handle .223 fine
Does this kit come with everything I need to complete the build?
Miguel a on Feb 17, 2019
BEST ANSWER: If I were you I would order 7 Magazines and the A2 Carry Handle and 100 rounds of 5.56 ammo. You will need some needle nose plyers a small brass hammer some punches and some dental pick tools a castle nut wrench and a rubber mallet .and you should be set
Does the lower parts kit come with a trigger guard?
Tyler D on May 20, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Mine did but I got my kit several months ago.
Will this upper attach to my DPMS lower?
Cody J on Feb 14, 2019
BEST ANSWER: If it is a standard ar15 size lower (5.56/300 blk), then yes it should attach. Be aware that you can run into legal issues if this lower was ever a rifle prior to turning it into a pistol, so do you research before you buy.
Tools needed to complete the build? ...thanks for the help!
Darren K on Feb 14, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hammer and punch set for the roll pins on the lower, armorers wrench for the castle nut on the buffer tube, and a long enough screwdriver to install the grip are all that you need. Some people like to use a vice to keep things in place while assembling, but that's quite optional.
Is the gas block pinned or have a set screw?
Mark M on Sep 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: All gas blocks with the A2 front sight post WILL be pinned. The only ones with a set screw are low profile gas blocks that a rail would go over
I prefer to use scopes instead of the metal sights. Would the front sight block the view on this?
Carl S on May 5, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Interference is based on the mounting height and magnification power of your scope. US military uses 4x ACOG behind their front sight. It's usable but bothers some people due to the ghost image of the front sight kind of visible.
What all do I need to add?
Ryan T on Apr 24, 2019
BEST ANSWER: All you need is a blank AR 15 lower and an attachable rear sight, carry handle, or scope or red/green dot sight. I put a Monstrum Tactical carry handle on mine. Works fine.
How long is it?
Luke F on Oct 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: 27 1/4 inches total length
Will a psa 1728 lower go with this 10.5 kit. how is this registered because its a pistol, thank you?
Alex a on May 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: When ever you buy a stripped lower it's registered as other so as long as you build it as a pistol first it's perfectly fine if you build a rifle first you can't use a barrel length under 16" or if you buy a lower with astock on it it's registered as a rifle and will not be able to use a 10.5 in less you sbr it first
Trying to build a 223 Wylde AR-15, what do I need with part 598 to complete?
thebax on Apr 14, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Part 598 is a great carbine lower kit. It will work with most all .223, .223 Wylde and 5.56mm carbine upper kits; however, most .223 Wylde kits are rifle length gas systems and may need tweeking to operate reliably with your carbine spring and buffer.
What is the OAL from end of buffer tube to barrel threading? Also, are there any parts worth replacing within 3 months? e.g., trigger. No need to include Rear BUIS/magazine/etc., thanks!
Linda C on May 7, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The OAL is 27”....
I replaced the plastic handrails with a two piece rail
Does this have notched hammer? I want to use 22lr drop in.
Richard on Apr 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: no, PSA triggers are flat hammers by default, I've never seen them use a notched hammer
Is trigger compatible with 9mm?
Richard on Apr 7, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes. The upper of a 9mm is what’s different the bolt.
What is the legality of the "stock" that comes with this kit. Is it considered a regular rifle stock, a pistol brace, or something else. Is it legally safe to put on a pistol without making it a SBR?
Nick on Dec 14, 2018

PSA Pistol Upper Kit
Got an out of spec upper first time did not line up correctly with any of the lowers I tried it on. Call PSA up. They did exchange happy with that. Second upper they sent is also cut wrong and it had dirt and what seem like little pieces of leaves. It does fit all my lowers. Have not shot it yet so I don't know if is just a cosmetic issue. We will see.

Who knew my favorite one would be my least expensive one.
Fantastic deal.
Accept from the time i decided to purchase it to the time i actually did the price went up $20.
Then a couple weeks later went back down.
Good deal either way though.
Nice weapon. 
Paird to right to bear 80% lower perfect match

One Nice AR-15 5.56 mm Pistol 10.5" barrel build kit.
I would not buy anything shorter than 10.5" I did not think it would be very accurate but I thought wrong ! This thing zeroed with the A2 carry handle iron sights with no problems with the Army 25 meter zero target .I hit pop up targets at 300 meters and a 20 oz plastic coke bottle at 100 meters .I had fun at the Army Range Qualification .I hit 40 pop up targets out of 40 .It took a few rounds to get it on paper for zero but the last target it only took 6 rounds to zero for battle sight zero. I think my next Pistol will be 5.56mm with green Magpul furniture.
2nd 25 meter zero target zeroed with 6 rounds after getting on paper
1st 25 meter zero target getting it on paper

The only complaint at this price point is that the OD green is noticeably different from the Magpul OD. Rustolium camo paint is a closer match. Fit and function is 5 stars.
Consistently get hits at 100yds on a 2in round plate with the Romeo5.
