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.

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.
Where would i buy the stripped lower?
Ramon A on Aug 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: There are a number of online companies who sell them but you have to have them shipped to a FFL holder since they are the serial numbered part. Check with your local gun shop. Many of them will either carry the lowers or will do the transfer, usually for a fee.
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
Can .223 be fired out of this rifle?
John M on Jul 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this will fire both 5.56 and .223
How difficult is it to change out standard hand guard for a free float say an M-LOK?
Tom C on Jul 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: That really depends on your skill level, mechanical and thinking abilities as well as what tools you have available. For me, i have done it SEVERAL HUNDRED times, so its very easy, 5min. For you ? Only you can answer that.
Does this kit have heat shields in the forearm pieces? If it has shields, are the shields single or double, top and bottom?
Snake 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.
Will the front site interfere with Red Dot sight?
Dennis B on Sep 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I usually put a rear back up sight on the weapon and match the dot sight with both the front and the back, once everything is aligned
the dot will be right on top off the front sight post when aligned correctly. As long as the dot sight is the same height as a rear back up sight.
what rear sight is recommended? Do the flip ups work well with the front sight on the gun?
Weston B on Aug 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: What is YOUR preference?, as long as it's of decent mfg and fits your needs, that's what I would recommend for you. Flip ups work great with this kit and FSB config.

cesar m on Apr 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I just received mine! and its nice!

Great product with great craftsmanship
I have purchased 6 of these kits with palmetto stripped lowers and absolutely love putting these kits together, never have had an issue with assembly, and these rifles shoot great! And with a great value as well.

Love my new rifle. I have owned a few AR's in the past, and this one feels much better than the ones I have owned before. Finish is perfect, very easy to put together even though it was my first build.

This is a perfect price point and quality for new owners and people new to building. All pieces included with extra springs, and worked well at the range. Very impressed!

Great rifle
Good quality rifle. Everything went together smooth. This is a great first gun build, or perfect for a truck gun.

Poor finish on bolt carrier
The bolt carrier finish was comparable to 120 grit sandpaper. Must have been made on Friday at the end of the shift. Otherwise everything was good quality, and cycled well.
I've bought several kits from you guys, and this is the only one that was less than top notch.

Great Price
I haven't completed the build yet, but from looking at the parts in detail everything looks great. With this and a PSA stripped lower you can do a good beginners build for under $400.00.

Works like a charm!
I finally got to go to the range and it worked like a charm. No issues at all. It looks awesome and I love it!! Can’t wait to put together another one.
Great stuff for a good price.

Parts kit
Really liked the quality of this kit. Lower parts were individually pack and springs are a better quality than kits I’ve bought from other companies. Really satisfied with kit.
