If I buy this kit does it come with everything besides the stripped lower?
Mckay B on Apr 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes. You need a stripped lower and rear sight only to complete a fully functional basic rifle
Does the kit come with all parts to build a working carbine? Does it include instructions on putting everything together?
Obsydian on Apr 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You would still need a stripped lower receiver and a magazine. I can't say if there are instructions, but basically you would be assembling the parts on the lower receiver, buttstock and grip. The upper is complete so you would just attach to the upper with the takedown and pivot pins. I suggest you google to see what's involved to make sure you have the necessary equipment. It's not hard, but if it's your first build, just take your time.
Can this be shipped to my home ?
wade b on Apr 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: If your state has restrictions PSA may not be able to ship ship. If you go through the purchase process and it doesn't allow you to send to your home it may have you send to an FFL or not at all. PSA Customer Service is very good with this type of information. I live in 'KALIFORNISTAN' and PSA is very up to date on individual state laws. Good Luck.
can this kit ship to new jersey?
PAUL k on Apr 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It has been common for magazine to seat tightly if they are filled to full capacity, try loading with 1 less round than max. It can also be an issue of to type of magazine. Usually polymers are a little tighter fit. It could also be with material lower is made from.
Does this come with a magazine?

Does this kit come with the rear flip up sight?
Brody on Jul 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I don't believe it does. Mine did not anyways. I put a carry handle with rear sight on mine. Hope that helps
Has anyone had trouble with inserting a loaded magazine? Sometimes I have to exert more than nornal force to get a loaded magazine to seat.
Gerald W on Apr 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: sounds like a lower problem,are you using plastic mags or metal , metal seems to work the best , hope this info helps out.
Does the lower build kit come with an extra detent and spring?
Colin on Jul 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, unless you lose all three they sent. I believe they send two for the front takedown pin and one for the rear takedown pin. Two for the front because it's the more difficult one to install. Both front and rear springs are the same
Does this kit have heat shields in the forearm pieces? If it has shields, are the shields single or double, top and bottom?
William P on Jul 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes they have the heat shields. Both top and bottom. Single layer each.
Will this work with a 5D tactical lower?
mojorisin on Jun 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: As long as your receiver is compatible with mill spec. Refer to your receiver specs.

Good quality
Built this kit on an Anderson lower and everything fit fine with no issues, put 100 rounds of steel cased ammo through it with a good fist sized group at 50 yards with irons.

if this is your first build I would highly recommend buying rollpin starters to make life a bit easier along with a long hex screwdriver for the pistol grip. You really dont need any tools to get the takedown pins in either, just use a razor to retain the spring and detent while you slip the pin over them.

Overall satisfied with the PSA kit

Christmas gift for wife
Wife has been asking for an AR15. Plus she has been involved in refurbishing some older guns with me. She's been pretty proud of the gums she'd refurbished, so getting her a kit to build for Christmas seemed like a good idea. It's only July, kit still in shipping box.
