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.

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

Will fit bushmaster lower ar15 ?
K W on Oct 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You will have no trouble fitting the A.R. 15 lower on the bushmaster. The AR 15 platform is very standardized. You only get into issues when you go to the AR 10 platform and then you need to keep upper and lower receivers specific to one manufacture.

JFKSWC on Oct 19, 2018

A drop in Quadrail is exactly the direction I'm planning to go with.

Can the plastic foregrip be swapped out on this relatively easily?
Wade S on Oct 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes sir, it's as easy as pulling back on the delta ring and lifting up the rear of the upper or lower handguard halves. It's easiest if the upper is on a gun and gig have a delta ring tool, but it's not impossible without. Hope that helps!

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.
Which rail goes w this upper to mount a vertical grip ?
D H on Jul 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It does not come with a rail, but NCStar makes a piece of pic rail that mounts through the vent holes in the bottom handguard.

The PSA front pivot pin is .248 inches // 6.2 mm when I measure it.

What kind of accuracy can you expect at 100 yards with this?
Shoelessjoe on Oct 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: At that distance expect for a 3” to 3 and a half in circle. It depends obviously on grain and 223 or 5.56 but none the lest it is a perfect weapon to defend your life and quality is better than I thought it would be.

Best upper for a budget build.
This is my second one of these. Can't beat them if your on a buget. Accuracy and build quality are above expectation at this price point.

Very Solid piece of machinery
First off, this is the first AR platform that I've invested in.
that being said, this upper looks to be a solid piece of machinery. I was at first thrown off by the price. Generally you get what you pay for in life. This is especially true with guns and gun parts. That being said, I think you get a bit more than you pay for with this. All in with the complete lower, complete upper, and a decent holo sight, I'm sitting at $400 in this piece. It shoots straight, and does the job I wanted it for (deer hunting out to 100 yards) with no problems.

For those who haven't owned this platform yet, you need four basic pieces:
1. Complete Lower
2. Complete Upper
3. Bolt Carrier Group (BCG) which is sometimes included with the lower.
4. Some sort of optics or sights (not always included with the upper)

I put this here because when I was researching it was actually hard to find for someone new...
