Do I need a stripped lower as well, and does it require an ffl?

Somewhat Satisfied on Jun 8, 2018
Has the head space been checked on the upper?
Mark M on Dec 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have never checked the head spacing. I didn't think it would be necessary because the upper was completely assembled at time of purchase. I have not had any issues when firing the gun to consider checking the head space. It fires as it should with no issues what so ever. Feeds and ejects every brand of 5.56 ammo as well as my reloads.
Does this have the heat shields in the hand guards?
Lonnie on Jun 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: They work just fine, I’ve put a few hundred rounds through the Gun in about a minute and still had no problem with heat.
My first build, any recommendations on sights?
Matt S on Jun 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: My local Gun Shop has the way AIM brand removable carry handle for 19 bucks .They are well worth the money in my opinion. You can take it off and install a scope or reddot later if you choose to.
I know the barrel is 4150v Chrome Moly steel , but is the barrel mil-spec ?
Patrick J on Jul 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I believe all military M4s have chrome lined barrel and chamber. In a semi-auto, this will make little difference. The original M16s did not have chrome either. Physical dimensions are mil-spec. These are a great bargain and all you need to complete the weapon is a lower receiver.
Is the barrel phosphate? Is the bore chrome lined?
D D on Apr 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This is a Nitrided barrel, inside and out. There is no chrome lining on this barrel.
Hey guys. This would be my first time owning an AR. Is this kit able to fire once assembled and does it include instructions?
Daniel W on May 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: See the other similar questions. You will need a Stripped Lower Reciever and rear sight or optic. It does not have directions. However, you can bing or google how to assemble a stripped lower receiver and see many good videos on how to put it together. You will need a punch set and other tools to make it easier.

Does this Rifle come assembled. ????
Dandydon69 on Jul 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No. The upper is assembled. The lower isn't due to kit doesn't come with a lower. You have to supply your own lower, that you can purchase separate.
Does this include a rear site?
Michael B on Jul 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No it doesn't. I installed a Troy fixed battle sight. Most rear sights you purchase will work. Double check the description of the sight you"re interested in to make sure it works with an A2 front sight.
Is this all a need complete set for this AR?
Henry T on Aug 3, 2018

What lower is recommended? first build.
Jmacz on Mar 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Any mil spec. PSA makes great parts including lowers, i bought this same kit for an Anderson lower I had. My first experience with palmetto. The Anderson lower worked perfectly with the PSA rifle kit. I just bought a palmetto AR10 lower and it’s real nice. I will be buying more from PSA. For the price you really can’t get better.

Fortunate Son is great
Got the rifle within 10 days of ordering came in a nice padded box. Paired it with a Spikes lower receiver. Probably ran 600 rounds out of it within 3 days of the build all 5.56 NATO from Federal and Winchester. 1/4 the price of my DD and still fun to shoot. Fortunate Son always plays when you pick up the rifle.
