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.

got it for black Friday, it did not disappoint, I have a National Match and everything that i use for the across the course, 200,300, and 600 match, but i will have more fun with this 16 inch with open carry handle sights. for sure will shoot it more.
I shot a 16 inch on the 600 yrd course once, with fact ammo 55 gr it did ok, and it was fun.

Satisfied customer.
I bought this to go on a lightweight Cavalry Arms lower. After adding a Magpul rear sight I adjusted the windage from about fifteen yards then walked down to the 50 yard line and started pounding my eight inch steel gong. This is an excellent upper.
