Looks good, canted front sight.
The barrel looks good and it is nice and light but i received ANOTHER canted front sight. I wanted to run this as an irons only gun so thats not really an option now. I will figure another use out for is since its a decent looking barrel otherwise.

Great customer service
First off this thing is PERFECT for that lightweight build. Such a joy to lug this gun around compared to my other heavy builds. Great all around beater/truck gun.

After building this thing it shot WAY right and I had to adjust my rear open sight almost all the way over to the left to get it to shoot center in the target. While this worked I was unhappy with it and sent the upper back. They paid my shipping to return it and within 2 weeks I got it back with an explanation that the issue was the barrel and they put a new barrel assembly on it test fired it and felt they had fixed the issue.
I just took it to the range and they did indeed fix it by replacing the barrel assembly. Rear site now pretty much at center and grouping center to target.

Thanks PSA!!!

Great lightweight upper
I got this as lightweight build for a gun that I built for my wife. I've been super impressed with the Freedom line from PSA so far and for $200 shipped it was a SILLY deal. The barrel is plenty accurate for my wife's "3-4 mag limit" at the range. Only thing I can't tell is if this is one of the 4150v steel barrels or still using the 4140 that some of the older freedom barrels used. Either way my wife's shooting habits means I'll probably never wear out the barrel in my lifetime and for $200 you can't go wrong. put a few hundred rounds down range with it paired with a Toolcraft 1B1B6 BCG and the thing is smooth as silk

Great upper
This upper is light weight and balances well. The finish on the barrel was black semi-gloss and uniform throughout. It was installed on a PSA branded upper that was T-marked. The front sight block was F marked and installed straight.

I used a standard charging handle black nitride BCG Magpul back up sights and installed a YHM muzzle brake. I attached the upper to an Aero Precision lower with a PSA Defender MOE lower parts kit-7777793 (recommended also) used an H buffer and an MOE fixed carbine stock. I tested five different brass cased loads 5.56 and 223 from 55 to 62 grains. This barrel preferred a 5.56 55 grain load. With iron sights accuracy was perfectly acceptable and I was able to get hits from 50 to 200 yards without problem. There were no feeding issues through about 200 rounds.

I bought it with the free shipping its an excellent buy considering the weight the mid length gas system and the MOE M-LOK hand guard.

Very light weight and quick shipping
I bought this upper for a build I am doing for my daughter and wanted to keep the weight down. I could not be happier!! The upper without BCG weighs (3lbs 3oz). I ordered it on Saturday and received it on The following Thursday.

Watch for frodnt sight alignment
This is an update on my last review for this upper. Again quality of the parts is great. After the test firing and zeroing I did fi d my fron sight block is canted slightly clock wise when veiwed from the rifle as you would fire it. This resulted in a POI way to the left and needed a lot of rear sight adjustment to correct the POI. I am waiti g for a respo ce for PSA customer service on this issue. That said this barrel hits steel target at 300 yards with buis only accuracy is great.

Killer upper are a dirty cheap price
Wow. This upper is nice. Soild and well built. Not a scratch on it front sight block is nice and straight. Upper is totally unmarked not forging marks or T marks on the one I received but I understand some Freedom uppers have the T marks and the Palmetto logo. Not a big deal to me at all. Barrel finish is a semi glossy melonite that looks perfectly done. For a complete upper with a lightweight pencil barrel and Magpul hand guard at $216.99 shipped you cant beat that. Shipping was faster than I was expecting. Having ordered here a few ti es already I know shipping can be a little slow at times. However I got my upper 6 business days after ordering. If you are unsure on the Freedom line fear not this is just as good as the Spikes carbine upper I looked at Bushmaster DPMS Ect. Same quality if not better than higher priced non chrome lined barrels.

I wish I had bought more
I haven't shot it yet but it seems to be really well done for the price.

I wish there were more people doing mid-length lightweights.

I will buy more when they are back in stock.
