Frank R on Apr 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Actually, YES... you can get a 10 round magazine... on your own. There are no substitutions in this kit. It comes as-is.
How is the inside of the barrel treated?
Charlie Z on May 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: There is not any special treatment as in chrome lining, etc. I suspect these barrels are dipped in the manufacturing process so if the outside of the barrel is Nitride coated I suspect the inside would receive the same coating.The technical folks at PSA that have knowledge of the manufacturing process can confirm this as correct or incorrect.
Is there a reason that the rear sight is mounted forward in comparison to the version with tan furniture?
Wyn B on Apr 30, 2018

I flipped a Liberal! (kind of)
My Liberal girlfriend despised guns, especially the AR. So I purchased this to show her it wasn't the Big Bad Devil a lot of her co-thinkers were pushing. First of all, you got to hand it to her for having an open mind. Took her to the range and let her pop off few rounds which she did with much reservation. Let her engage at 7 yards,,, then 10,,, then 20 (max distance at that indoor range). Hitting the bullseye at those distances, you could see she was enjoying it by the smile she couldn't wipe off her face. About 40 rounds later, she started talking about how fun it was and that she could see people doing this as a sport. On our drive home she said the three words I never thought would come from her mouth... she said "I want one!" I had hers done in cerakote pink!!!

Follow on: She told two of her lifelong Liberal friends about the experience and excitement of shooting the AR and although one was cool about it, the other chastised her and actually almost destroyed the friendship. Its cool now but I still get the Evil Eye from her friend!
