Could you just remove the front sight post?
Anthony M on Jun 20, 2018
will the bolt carrier work in an m16 lower in full auto?
Rick N on Jun 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: yes, but you will need the anti-bounce weight AND the sear trip cage.
Is the barrel a .22lr specific barrel, or is this just a swapped out BCG?
K F on Jun 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This is a dedicated upper. No gas tube (as it is a blowback system) and the twist rate is one much more suited for rimfire 22. Comes with standard upper reciever, handguards and everything else. Just pop this on to an existing 5.56/223 AR lower.
Is there a port in the barrel or can I remove front sight??
Me T on Jun 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: As stated in the beginning of the Q & A column:

This is a dedicated upper. No gas tube (as it is a blowback system)
Can the threaded barrel end be capped with a cover that goes over the threads and welded so it is NY legal?
Daniel C on Apr 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: yes, same threads as a standard .223/5.56 AR.
Will this work with an Echo trigger in the lower?
Jason H on Aug 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: yes the echo uses a hammer to strike at the same point as a standard AR fire group. No reason why it shouldn't work.
Could one use this without a recoil assembly(no spring or buffer weight)?

PSA makes .22LR Perfection!!!!
My PSA .22 upper arrived yesterday and I tested it today. I paired it with PSA's AR15 Complete MOE EPT SBA3 Lower- 5165448150 and it fits perfect. The EPT trigger is amazing compared to my other AR mil spec triggers. A short pickup and a crisp break that was smooth and actually broke before I expected it. My lower included the EPT trigger at no extra cost on sale- I highly recommend it. I boughty a Black Dog 25 rnd mag from PSA. I was a bit worried about this mag due to reviews but it worked very well. The bolt holds open after your last shot, and when you release the mag, the bolt closes. Not a big deal to me and I don't think it's worth buying the adapters for M&P mags unless you already have them. I shot my 5.56 AR's and then I shot this .22 and it was so nice to have a .22 that is the same weight and feel as an AR because it is an AR! This setup is perfect for anyone wanting to shoot an AR but save money on ammo. I noticed that I could rapid fire the .22 faster and easier than the 5.56, naturally. I mounted a rear sight and it was dead accurate. The best thing is that it feels exactly like shooting a 5.56 just with less recoil. I'm in my 40's and I grew up with a Marlin .22 with the tube mag and I loved it but always wanted a Ruger 10-22. I have since bought many guns but never a .22 until I saw PSA offer this one. The upper was in perfect condition. I couldn't find a flaw. The nickle color bolt looks great, just like my LWRC's bolt. The 1 in 16 twist is what a .22LR needs and the bolt functions flawlessly. No misfires!!! My FFL tried to mount a competitors upper on my PSA lower and the front pin got stuck. When I mounted this PSA .22 upper and my Colt uppers on the PSA lower, they both fit perfectly so PSA is making things Mil spec! If you are debating between this PSA .22 upper and a Ruger 10-22, the Umarex Colt or the M&P 15-22 I would say buy this PSA. If you already have an AR lower, all you need is this upper and some mags. The Colt, Ruger and S&W M&P are great guns. They are a little lighter in weight which could be good for a younger child, but they are not mil spec. Plus, you will never grow out of this full size mil spec AR .22. Thanks PSA and happy shooting to all!!

great value
Can't buy the parts for what this upper costs. Mine's very reliable with numerous lowers even with subsonic ammo. No wonder they can't keep them in stock.

Great fun, great price.
Just shot her, love every second of it. Shoots standard CCM 1070 fps, like it was meant to do it. Not one failure. No need for the tactical 1200 FPS, which do crack that sound barrier. That’s with a BCM trigger, and JP 4.5 springs.

P.S. - the bolt carrier is a CMMG, it’s over $200 on its own...

Great upper for a great price. Thanks PSA
I was gonna get a M&P 15-22 and then I saw this. What a great upper. I now have a true mil spec AR in 22LR. I have 600-800 rounds through it so far and have had zero issues. Redid-mag makes an adapter that lets you use the much better M&P 15-22 Mags instead of the bulldog style mags. Using the adapter gives you full function of the bolt catch which is a huge plus because it replicates a standard caliber AR. I highly recommend this upper.

Great fun
I ordered the upper on Wednesday and received it on Monday. Took it out to the range and had a great time with it. First three rounds the BCG was very tight and I had to use the charging handle to eject and chamber the next round. After the third round it worked on it own and I when through three 25 round magazines without any problems. This upper is an exact match to the 5.56 and 7.62 uppers I got from PSA and I have not had a problem with any of them.
The .22lr upper will allow me more range time as it is about 1/10 the cost of 5.56 and 7.62.

Nicely made upper
Purchased this upper to go with my 80% lower build and a PSA lower parts kit, ran flawless with minimal cleaning using quality ammo.
