Are the rings which hold the hand guard riangular or round?
Andrew L on Apr 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: triangle
Is the barrel 4150?
Tony C on Apr 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It's 4140
Will it Correctly mount a Bayonet?
Nunya B on Apr 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes. All mid-length uppers can mount a bayonet.
Will this accept MOE handguards?
GAdog on Dec 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Regular, yes. MOE SL (slim) it will not.

All PSA uppers I have seen come with a triangle retention cap that will fit standard MOE but not the circular design of the MOE SL.
Is the inside of the barrel also nitrided?
B H on Dec 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, nitriding is a surface treatment process that hardens the bore and exterior of the barrel.
Will this upper fit a Knights Armament RIS handguard?

Excellent value for the money
A great lightweight upper for the money has all that you need and nothing that you don't. Only Improvement it could use is to be parked over the nitrite to kill that shiny finish on the barrel.

Love the light weight. Reminds me of the A1 days. Solid, no blend. Tight fit with my PSA lower.

Nice upper , but....
Very nice upper , but unfortunately did not arrive as represented in the ad picture . The picture shows the upper with the fat ( straight ) handguard , mine arrived with the tapered one . Called customer service and explained the issue and the girl said she'd send me the correct one , at no charge ( to her credit) . when the replacement arrived , it was the exact same one they sent the first time . At that point I figured I'd just let it slide , otherwise I'd have given it 5 stars .

Super light weight and plenty accurate.

I bought one of these from a friend (NIB) for what he paid for it to build a light weight for the wife unit. I used a spare BCG and Charging Handle added a Carry handle sight checked the head space and installed it on a Tactical Innovations lower...Perfect Fit! With a 20 round mag the balance was great.
Took it out to my pistol range and did a quick function test...I dumped a 20 rounder of PMC and one of el-cheapo steel cased Russian and one 30 rounder of PMC. Gobbled them up with zero issues. It chucked the brass about 5 feet at the 3 O'clock position. I was very pleased to see only a minuscule ding from the deflector leaving the brass totally re-loadable.
As for accuracy...My old wobbly self managed about 3 inches at 25 offhand rapid fire...Experience says it will be slightly over 1 inch at a hundred in the lead sled. It can defiantly shoot better than I can!
The only problem I have Is now I must start stuffing the Cookie Jar for another one!!!

I put this on a palmetto lower with a colt bolt carrier group. It is light weight and accurate. Shoots as good as name brand rifles. I have shot a couple hundred rounds with no malfunctions. You cannot beat the quality for a rifle that had a total build price of $400.00
