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: Using a standard tape I measured mine to be only just over 1/16 if an inch 1/16 is .0625 so I suppose it's close to possibly .07 if it's over it gas to be on the very low side of .07+
It’s this a typo? $339.99
ERIK B on Jun 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, that is not a typo!
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.
Does this have the white PSA logo on the receiver?
Phil T on Jul 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: the two i just received did not.
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.
What is the best free float hand guard for this upper?
D-Man on Feb 2, 2019
BEST ANSWER: On a 10.5" barrel any 9" rail would get you pretty close to the full length of barrel without protruding out past barrel end or overlap flash hider.
Best is a relative term dependent on what features you deem important or must haves such as , brand, price point, accessory mounting type such as picatiny/mlok/keymod.
Ultimately in order to install a free float hand guard you will have to hammer out the 2 pins holding the A2 front sight post and install a low profile gas block in order to clear the free float hand guard. Or you could cut the post and grind the cuts down smooth till the handguard clears and hit the ground areas with some paint or a cold blue pen. If you do install a low pro gas block make sure to dimple the barrel for the set screws at the least and then I would also pin the block that way you are certain it will stay put.

Last option would be to purchase a 2 piece free float hand guard.
I believe midwest industries and Troy both make one, this allows you to keep that front sight post without modifying and install free float hand guard around it.

Either way free float will require removal of front sight post to remove the original hand guard retaining plate.
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

When will this come back into stock???
D-Man on Jan 24, 2019
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
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.
What method is PSA using to attach the gas block on this upper ?
William L on Dec 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It is pinned and real secure.
Does it come with a carrying handle?
ERIC J on Mar 7, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No it does not. It is a flat top, just as it is pictured.
When will this be back in stock?
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: It will not have them. It will just say FN or something of the like.
When will this be a daily deal? Thanks
Marco on Sep 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It looks like they run those every 3months.

Very nice upper for the money

Awesome upper
This is one of my favorite rifles. I installed a carry handle, PSA NiB BCG, Raptor CH and mounted on a Shockwave Blade pistol lower. It is compact, simplistic and very accurate. I have put a few thousand rounds through it without any issues. This thing is awesome!
June 8, 2019
Total workhorse
I should have bought this a long time ago. Very impressed . Was especially surprised with how accurate it was. Not saying it's a tack driver but it hits what it's aimed at. Mine didn't have any forge markings on receiver or T marks but that isn't a big deal. I added a PSA premium BCG and charging handle and paired it with a PSA shockwave blade lower .

Nice Upper
This is a really nice upper. Functions perfectly. The only complaint I have is there are no T-marks on the upper receiver. I have emailed PSA about this.

Worth every penny
This upper is awesome, I’m very pleased with the accuracy for a short barrel, 2” @100 yards prone using federal 5.56 62gr.

Great Upper
This upper fit together nicely with a standard 39 dollar PSA Lower. Ver snug and tight fit with no rattle or sloppy movement whatsoever. I put a 20 dollar flip up sight that has large and small apertures on the rear and an SBA3 brace on it., a 70 dollar PSA Premium BCG and mil spec charging handle.

I am able to hit a tennis ball size target at 100 yards 8 out of ten shots and the misses are not that far off.
This is a nice little self defense weapon at a cost that was well within my budget. I am very satisfied.

Excellent quality FN barrel. Runs perfectly. My only negative was it took 2 weeks for it to ship out.

Excellent FN CHF pistol upper.
Another excellent FN CHF barreled upper from PSA. Mine is very well fit and the front sight is straight. Accuracy has been very good. I am running an Aimpoint red dot. I can easily ring steel at 100 meter. Despite the upper receiver being advertised as being T marked, mine was not. I brought this to PSA attention and they offered an exchange or a nominal monitary credit. I opted for the credit because everything else about the upper is great. I feel the CHF uppers are worth the extra $$.
