Does this come with a magazine?
Aaron on May 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it comes with one aluminum 30-round magazine.
Can the barrel extension and front sight be removed to replace with a m-loc style hand-guard?
Audie H on May 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Removing the barrel extension does not make this a SBR- Nobody can sell a gun with a barrel extension that is not permanently affixed if removing that extension would make it an SBR. If he wanted to, he could put a threaded cap on the 1/2-28 and it should still be legit. Any rifle that, without substantial modification, can be made to have a barrel length less than 16 inches from breech to tip is a short barreled rifle. Meaning, this isn't a 14.5" M4 with a birdcage to make it legal. It's a 16" rifle and the overall length of the barrel will still be 16" no matter what you slap on the end unless you make the extension part of the barrel in a permanent fashion.
does it accept 223?
Paul C on Apr 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hey Paul, Yes, it does accept 223 along with 556.
Will these accept ar mags? New to these, thanks!
Nick D on May 10, 2018
I have never had a problem with Meatal Mil Spec or any P mags it functions fine, just remember not to over load your mags as can happen. 29 is always better than 30 for sure mag placement.
Does this have sights?
Brokenarrow on Jun 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The best thing to do is read the item description fully. If it's not in the picture or mentioned in description it's not likely included. For an exact answer you can always contact Customer Service with the SKU number and ask them. They are fine and knowledgeable folks.
Can the hand guard be changed without removing the front sight?
Mikael on Jul 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes. The front site is actually part of the barrel but the hand guards are in two pieces that can easily be removed and new ones installed in their place
Can it be purchased with rail system and grip?
Johnny M on Jul 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It comes with a rail that will fit rear sight and a scope, the grip is also included
Can the handguard /front sight be removed?
Daniel S on Aug 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hand guard removal is a simple one person process, be mindful of heavy spring tension and pinching fingers. Front sight removal is best done with proper tools. If you know someone local who could knock the pins out for you the proper way, you would save a lot of frustration and time for maybe a few bucks. You can buy an AR front sight block and front sight tapered punch to do job correctly. If you're not going to be a builder have it done for you.
Can you attach a foregrip and/or flashlight to this?
Nathan G on Jul 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: YES, see answer above.
Is this manufactured in the USA?
John C on Jul 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This rifle is 100% manufactured in the USA by Palmetto State Armory.

Excellent shooter for $499 plus free S&H
Great CAR shooter, quality fit and finish (shotpened bolt a little course), drives tacks and never a failure. Great truck rifle. Add your own sight and your set. (Comes with 1 Promag gen 3, decal and owners manual).

Great rifle, shoots sweet. My only gripe is the original folding stock collapsed after every shot. Either the holes in the buffer tube weren't machined right or the stock was defective......anyway, replaced folding stock with a fixed Magpul and problem solved.

PSA Freedom Rifle M4 clone
Well made, everything looks milspec, no failures of any kind, well worth the money. The only issue I experienced was the holes in the buffer tube were too small for the buttstock pin to fit into. The rifle was unusable, as the recoil collapsed the stock to its most retracted position. As I was on a camping trip. I had to enlarge two of the holes to be able to use it. I will now need to get a milspec tube and replace the one on the rifle. Not a big deal, but annoying. Other than that, it's all good!

I have fired over 500 of 5.56 rounds with no problem and over 300 of .223 rounds with no problem. I would like to have the opportunity to put more rounds through my PSA 16 but the ammo is a little expensive. Customizing the PSA 16 is a little of a pain because the front post sight is a little harder to remove then other rifles it is possible it just gonna take a little extra work.

I got much more than what I paid for
I received my rifle In just a few days after I ordered it. When I first inspected it I realized that I got much more than what I paid for. This rifle is well built and as I found out the first time that I sighted it in...extremely accurate. This rifle shot smoothly and efficiently And without any hiccups whatsoever. Since this model did not come with the rear sight I invested in an inexpensive "Sniper AR-15 Detachable Carry Handle" sight. Because I am old school I wanted to see how it would shoot with an iron sight and it did not disappoint me whatsoever!

I am looking forward to a red Dot or a scope in the future. All in all this is a superb rifle for the price. The only con was that it wasn't packaged well and was dropped during shipment and the front sight has a small ding in it.

The rifle was nicely packed The trigger pull was good. It was a little rough in the beginning when firing but after awhile was smooth, i guess it needed a break in. Overall was pleased with the purchase.

PSA 16" Freedom rifle...don't fear the Freedom.
Fair price for a fair rifle.
Read the other opinions online and felt confident enough for purchase. It's a basic rifle, finish is good but not the best, function with silver bear 55gr. was without issue...we shot between 200-300 rounds with 1-2 mag dumps. I misfire with a solid dent in the primer (ammo's fault). Provided PMag locked in good and Brownell's aluminum mags worked without issue. After shooting rifle rattled a little more than new. Seemed accurate enough to about 100 yards with open sights (add about 70$ to your purchase price if you buy psa carry handle). Did not do any dead rest target shooting so no comment to fine accuracy but immediately seemed more accurate than a rifle that rhymes with skinny moreteen. Your results may vary. Happy shooting and 2A protects the rest.
