Matt S on Jun 10, 2018

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
BEST ANSWER: You also need a stripped lower as well but everything else is here. It may depend on your local laws as well. If you are in California then you will need to make some changes

Dandydon69 on Jun 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes it does
Is this a complete build, ready to shoot kit?
Yan s on Feb 7, 2019
BEST ANSWER: You must obtain a lower receiver and assemble the lower portion of the kit. There is not much to it. I could have it completed in less than an hour. There are plenty of how to videos on Utube.You need some punches and some small had tools. An AR15 multi wrench is also handy but you can get by without it.The upper (the hard part) is already assembled.
Is this product civilian use?
PJthebest on Jan 23, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, if assembled on a standard AR-15 lower receiver this kit is completely legal in the U.S. FEDERALLY. Check your state laws, however. It may not be allowed in some states. Hope this answers your question.
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.
Can a light be mounted to the hand guard using mlok?
Samuel P on Jan 31, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This is a standard MilSpec-type hand guard. You would need to change the hand guard out for a Magpul one. Pretty easy to do.

Great value
Good parts for the price! Everything that matters is right. Parts and pieces fit together nice, m4 feed ramps in upper, bcg staked proper, fsb straight not canted. Comes with standard mil spec trigger, and a2 furniture. You can always swap out that stuff later if you like, but for the price I won’t complain. Palmetto sells good parts and kits. Shoots good. All you need is a lower receiver, and a rear sight or optic.
