Barrel: Barrel is made for Palmetto State Armory by FN Manufacturing using their proprietary blend of hammer forged chrome molly vanadium that is referred to as "Machine Gun Steel" by virtue of its use in FN's M249 and M240 weapons.   The hammer forging process work hardens the steel, making it more durable.  In addition, the chrome process for the bore allows for a lining almost twice as thick as a standard M16 for enhanced durability.  Chambered in 5.56 NATO, with a 1:7 twist, M4 barrel extension with extended feedramps, and a carbine gas system.   The barrel has an A2 style profile, is mil-spec phosphate coated, and MP/HP tested.  The upper is finished off with an F-marked front sight post with sling swivel, and an A2 flash hider.

Upper: Forged 7075-T6 A3 AR upper is made to MIL-SPECS and hard coat anodized black for durability. Featuring machined T marks, and a mil-spec finish. These uppers are made for us right here in the USA by a mil-spec manufacturer.

Each upper is assembled to order with care, and test fired.  Does not come with bolt carrier group or charging handle.

Your specs-description are goofed up. Is the barrel phosphate or FN chrome-lined?
Peter on Jun 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: They are not goofed up, they are correct. The barrel is a Cold Hammer Forged, Chrome Lined Barrel with a Phosphate finish. It's exactly what it says it is.
This has been out of stock for months. I need 2. Is it being discontinued?
J M on Jun 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Nope. It's for sale right now.
Gas port size?
james f on Jul 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The gas port size on pistol length or SBR barrel is different from 16 and 20 inch , I can't remember if it's larger or smaller but it is to keep the gas pressures within operating parameters. This is an FN barrel so you may rest assured that it is of excellent quality and properly manufactured.
to get the 10.5 upper to run reliably with a full auto bolt carrier what weight buffer do you recommend ?
Sam B on Jul 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It’ll run on a standard carbine weight buffer fine. I personally use an h1 buffer( 1 solid tungsten weight, and 2 standard steel weights), and it runs perfectly.
It’s this a typo? $339.99
ERIK B on Jun 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, that is not a typo!
What is the best free float hand guard for this upper?
D-Man on Feb 2, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Because of the front sight you’re better off with a 2 piece drop in. I used a Midwest Industries Gen 2 quad rail. Fights like a glove.
Does this have the white PSA logo on the receiver?
Phil T on Jul 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: They randomly come with or without the logo.
Is the upper reciever marked with psa logo?
Connor on Jul 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: On both of my PSA complete CHF uppers, there are no psa logos anywhere... barrels on both of these are marked and stamped with the round FNH logos...HF 1/7 MP ect...genuine FNH stampings
Is this a single or double insulated handguard?
MikeyO on Apr 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: only a single heat shield per half.
Does this come with the round ring or triangular shape handguard cap? Looking to add a magpul sl hand guard that requires the round ring to fit. Thanks
M0_Bigsley on Mar 8, 2019
Any idea who forged the upper receiver, or what forge stamp is on it(if one is present)?
13R^D on Aug 10, 2019
How is the gas block secured?
David L on Feb 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It’s the standard mil-spec two pin configuration. Excellent upper. Love mine.
Does barrel have psa logo on it?
Caesar L on Jan 12, 2020
BEST ANSWER: No, it actually has the FN rollmark.
Are these barrels properly head-spaced, so as not have to worry about needing head space gauges since they don't come with BCG?
Also, has anyone ever had a canted Front Sight?
Lastly, do these come with slim or fat hand-guards? Looks fat in the pick, just asking for confirmation.
john4251 on Aug 15, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Always headspace your barrel just in case. Mine was in spec no issues. As for canted front sight mine wasn’t no issues with sighting in. And yes the hand guards are M4 style (fatter ones).
Is the flash hider part of the 10.5 inch measurement? I assume it's not but in another post I saw someone say that 10in for a handguard would be too large. Thanks
Blake B on Aug 18, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The barrel is measured from the bolt face (bolt closed) to the end of the barrel. The flash hider is not included.
I just got 2 of these and why are not uppers not marked with forge stampings and the top rail is not t marked?
Chris W on Dec 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I just received one this week. Forged upper and T marked. Ordered Feb of 2019
When will this come back into stock???
D-Man on Jan 24, 2019
Does this barrel run .223 as well?
Dono8770 on Apr 12, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Short answer is "yes". Do some research on the differences in .223 and 5.56 you'll find it's only important if your going for accuracy. With a 10.5" barrel I assume that's not the case it'll run both just fine.
What method is PSA using to attach the gas block on this upper ?
William L on Dec 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This is held on in a mil spec fashion. It is not a good idea to convert this to a free float system, when you can buy a free float system off the shelf.
Is a gun permit required?
Chilion H on Jan 28, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The answer to your question is state-dependent. Generally speaking, and upper receiver it’s considered just a “gun part“ like any other accessories such as a bolt carrier group, Charging handle, trigger group, pistol grip, etc. In hyper-restrictive states like California, and upper receiver does have to go through an FFL.
Is the a fn barrel?
Jblack on Mar 27, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Mine is, and the description says it is an FN barrel you have to remove the upper handguard to see the FN marking and cal. and twist rate. I love this upper quick handling and accurate.
Will this fit a multi lower?
morgan s on Jan 27, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Yes. It will fit any AR-15 lower. Will not fit AR-10, AR-9, AR-45. Will fit PSA PA-15 lowers.
I have a Colt Milspec rifle. Will this fit on and function with its lower receiver?
CarlR on Jan 16, 2020

Marco on Sep 9, 2018

Brandon K on Feb 1, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Right now. :)
I ordered one of these but cannot find any CHF markings on the barrel. Am I missing something?
B S on Dec 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: remove top handguard and you find the FN factory markings.
Does anyone have an ETA when this will be back in stock, as of 18MAY20 ???
David B on May 19, 2020
By any chance, does anyone know what company forged the upper receiver?
13R^D on Mar 7, 2020
Does this kit have the same upper receiver as kit 516447140? Or is this receiver a better fit, finish?

Great upper! Will buy again
For the price this is the best your gunna get. Everything is tight and the finish is perfect. Shoots great and accuracy is great for being only a 10.5". If your reading the reviews trying to figure out if this is right for you, then stop reading and buy it!

Great for a Kiss pistol
Great upper, it checks all the boxes. Hard to beat the traditional “A” sight for a “Keep It Simple Stupid” pistol for truck gun or home defense. PSA does it again.

Solid upper! Fit and finish is right up there with my colts and smith and wesson ARs. Couldn't be happier with my purchase!
Great fit and finish on the premium line of uppers for PSA. FN CHF chrome lined barrels 😍

Best 10.5" Upper Out There
Great price on a fine upper with an FN chrome lined barrel. From a old, retired 11Z, this is an upper I would love to have on a rig for close urban events (second only to a shotgun). It is also surprisingly accurate.

Very well made upper!
This is a very well made upper. It fit right on my lower with no play between the two. I haven't shot it yet, but plan to asap! Great job PSA!

The best 10.5 for the money
I love the 10.5 it's , quite a joy I got the SBa3 brace kit and a Nib PSA BCG it's awesome
Fairly accurate, one of my favorite all time firearms at the end. Cold hammer forged, chrome-lined, all kick ass!

PSA CHF 10.5 upper assembly
I was running the Nitride 10.5 upper #507020, but moved it to a pistol build. It's an excellent upper assembly as well. This CHF upper was definitely a great move. The fit and finish on this upper is excellent. The rail is T marked and the receiver has the "A" forge mark. The top of the barrel has the FN logo and is marked CHF MP 5.56 NATO 1/7 under the handguard. You could spend almost double the price of this upper for an LMT and IMO it wouldn't be any better than this PSA. I would highly recommend this 5 star upper. Fast shipping.

Reliable and Accurate
This is the first upper i purchased for my first build and my first ARP. It has functioned incredibly well. Lots of rounds through this.
April 22, 2020
Decent upper!
Really good upper over all. The foregrip didn’t fit properly and had to be replaced with an old set I already had. The front cap is loose but works. It does shoot really well.
