What else would I need to make a complete gun if I bought this upper and the SKU: 7779346 lower?
Sandbed on Aug 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You would need a rear sight and maybe some type of optic. Other than that you're golden. It's a good set up and well worth it.
What kind of sights will work with this upper? Can you put a red dot on it?
Mikie on Jul 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I put a Holosun red dot on it. It works great. Any red dot will work if it is high enough to 'co-witness' with normal AR sights. You can purchase a flip up sight for the rear.

Dandul on Apr 17, 2018

Bruce R on Jul 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Bruce I purchased this upper with the 7779346 lower and they work perfect.
Finish on the barrel?
ALTON L on Jul 5, 2018

Do you think this upper would fit My Rock River arms lower,
because an upper off a ruger AR didn't fit?
Noel S on Sep 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This upper should fit an RRA lower, but the Ruger AR556 upper/lower are not mil-spec and are not fully compatible. For that matter, the PSA "Classic Freedom" upper here is not truly mil spec either, rather it is a budget upper with SOME mil-spec features. For a budget build, these are adequate uppers but do no expect total compatibility, reliability, or quality on par with any decent upper such as BCM, Noveske, DD, Rainier, CMMG, Meridian Ordnance, Accurate Tool/Die, LMT etc.

Luke K on Sep 10, 2018

Can't beat the price for the value
I paired this upper with the Palmetto FDE classic lower and a UTG Mil-Spec A2 carry handle. Sub- $380 AR, with a 10% off coupon. Shooting at 50 & 200, it fared well with similar rifles over $1,000. Charging handle is OK. I put 200 rounds through without a single issue.

Great value!
I paired this with a Colt M4 carbine lower and it looks great!! It shoots well and is half the price of a 6920. Keep up the good work!

Classic 16" FDE
This upper assembly was put on a PA15 lower build and it runs great. Just clean it, lube it and you're ready to run.

Nice for the price
I got this upper in June and it has been great. I have some targets up at 400 yards that I can hit with relative ease. I have a tru-glo scope made for a 54g .223 bullet but I have great results with 5.56 rounds that are 54g. I have shot with good accuracy out to 600 and 700 yards as well, but I haven’t tried to zero it that far out.
September 23, 2018
Good deal
Very pleased with this upper, good quality product for a great price. Fit perfect with no wobble or rattle.

Not to happy with this set up... I cant get it sighted in with a red dot not iron sights... Not even able to hit a dinner plate at 30 yards. there must be something way off about it but I guess you get what you pay for. It was cheap... looks great but not too good of quality.
