Is this tactical or non-tactical?

Is the Vortex Strikefire II just red dot or red/green?
Keith F on Apr 7, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Just a red dot..
What else do I need to buy with this? Just a magazine? Are special tools required to put the lower together?
Terry H on Mar 27, 2019
BEST ANSWER: You will need a lower receiver which you can also purchase at PSA. The only tools you will need is a thin punch which you can get at any hardware store. I had no assembly experience and was able put put it together pretty easily.
Will the Reaper stripped lower fit this?
Dave F on Mar 30, 2019

You'll need a few basic tools to complete your assembly (hammer and punch, wrench, castle nut tool) but it goes together nicely. There's a plentiful amount of walk through videos on YouTube that you can follow as well to make it easy.

The Strikefire is a great optic, no complains there from me at all. The only thing I was disappointed with was the mil spec trigger, I swapped that out for something, with a much lighter and crisper break.
Is it easy to replace the hand guard and front sight assembly?
TheRef on May 21, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hand guard is easily replaced. Simply push and hold the delta ring back and remove the hand guard. You can use a guard removal tool or screw driver to assist.
The front sights are pinned. You need to hammer the pins out, remove the pin for the gas tube and the gas tube and install a new gas block assuming you're going with a free float system.
What type of magazine does it take?
Steve W on May 13, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Any standard AR mag will work. Usually you can find good deals on Pmags and those have worked the best for me.
Has the barrel, bolt, etc, been MPI or HPT?
John R on Mar 30, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The bolt I got was MP inspected (MPI)
Can I get this with a shorter barrel?
MikeMoney on Mar 28, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No. Unless you you buy a separate barrel and put it on yourself. PSA wont exchange parts. Then you'll have to do paperwork with ATF because you are making your rifle into a short barrel rifle. In that case you're better off just buying an AR-15 pistol kit.
What is the overall length? Can a novice put this gun together?
PrivateMike on Mar 27, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I don't have this exact one, but I got their blem series, with another stripped lower, it took me about 2 hours to fully build mine. No experience and was my first build.
What’s the overall length of the completed rifle?

Will an AR 15 lower receiver work with this set up?

Great Package at this Price
Been wanting to build my 1st AR-15 so picked this one. Got it around Christmas 2018 with free ship. Shipping was fast. Kit was complete and was easy to build. Installed Vortex, went out shooting and didn't have to make any adjustments - dead on. Firearm runs with no feed or eject issues. Waited a year to give feedback. Only thing I bought was a padded case for transportation and more ammo.

A great deal.
The perfect starter AR15. After putting this together I feel like an expert and have a much better sense of how this weapon operates. It is a solid rifle and still fires like new.

Awesome rifle! Performs perfectly.
Simply perfection! Very well crafted as expected from PSA. Didn’t even have to sight it in, mounted the Vortex and hit dead center on the first shot!
Absolutely love it! It’s a nail driver straight out of the box!

Strong buy
Mine came with a cosmetic blemish on the reciever (not sold as a blem) so i had to deduct the 2 stars. Still a good deal considering they basically throw the sight in for free! Blemish or not.... strong buy!

Loved it! Red dot was worth the extra. Sighted in in less than 5 shots. Great weapon.
