does this kit come with a barrel?
nite f on Jan 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Did you even read the description before posting this question?
What lower can I buy ?
Dio702 on Jan 2, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Any mil-spec A2 lower will work. I'd recommend an Anderson, PSA or Aero Precison A2 Lower.
Can this be sold to a New York resident?
David M on Jan 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, to NYS not NYC
What else will I need to complete the rifle?
Johnny K on Dec 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Stripped lower, rear sight and a mag
What is the difference between the ar15 and ar16 upper receiver?
Jerry H on Jan 2, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The AR-16 was a 7.63x51 prototype. It was very different to the AR-15 and if you somehow have an AR-16 lower receiver, this will not work.
Can the front site be removed ?
Israel J on Dec 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, but it requires a quality punch set and many really good hits with a hammer. Pins are tapered so will only punch out one way. I have attempted this on two different PSA FSBs, once with success and the other time I had to get the Dremel. Some may be in there really good so just be away of what you are getting into.
Do you have to go through an FFL ?
Robert on Dec 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No
What tools will I need to complete this build? From a first time kit buyer (obviously)
Jason S on Jan 20, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Bare minimum tools need to assemble a AR lower, (since the upper is already assembled).
Hammer preferably brass or other soft metal, Pin punches 1/16 and 1/8 inch, Channel locks type pliers
(internet search for pliers trick for bolt catch and trigger guard installation should find you videos), electrical or masking tape to cover jaw of pliers.
Armorers or castle nut wrench for installing the buffer tube assembly, (in a pinch a brass punch can be used)
Another trick for installing the front take down pin spring and detent is to use a 1/4 inch clevis pin (another internet search should find you a video)
Is the upper assembled ?
Steve G on Dec 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes. Place it on your completed lower, insert the pin, and you're ready to shoot.
Whats the difference between the "Freedom" rifle and the "Classic" rifle kit?
Chris on Jan 20, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Comparing the specs on the two pages, it looks as if the color of the furniture and the steel used in the bolt are the only differences
Is this kit California compliant?
Russell H on Apr 6, 2019
Will you shop to California?
Christian Q on Jan 20, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes
Does this kit come in grey?
Jimmy C on Jan 22, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Did you search the website ?
Is the buffer kit made from 7075 aluminum or 6061 aluminum ?
mjasper on Feb 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, one or the other.
What caliber rounds will this rifle shoot besides .223 and 556?
Will it take the 300 Blackout
Donald L on Jan 17, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Rule of thumb: A rifle in 5.56 can shoot 223 but a rifle in 223 cannot shoot 5.56. Neither can shoot 300 blackout. You need a 300 blackout upper to shoot the round.
Which PSA rear sight is required for this build?
Pierce on Dec 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No sight is "required", PSA or other brand to make the rifle functional.
Target acquisition is another subject.
Are the parts packaged in groups like "Trigger assembly" ect?
John on Dec 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: My PSA kits have come grouped in that way. If they didn't, a quick Google will show you which part is which.
What magazine does this rifle take?
Manor L on Dec 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Standard 5,56/ 223 magazines, I especially like Palmetto State Armory aluminum mags always a great value!
Will this shoot .223 ammo?
Tman0520 on Dec 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, all day long!
Can any lower receiver can be used. Like Anderson Mfg.?
Shaun W on Feb 28, 2019
BEST ANSWER: yes any stripped lower for ar-15
Is the gas block already installed, this will be my first ar15?
ojack on Mar 8, 2019
BEST ANSWER: HEY OJACK, CONGRATS ON PSA M4 ATTEMPT. I DID IT A COUPLE MONTHS AGO, EVERYTHING IS THERE EXCEPT A STRIPPED LOWER. ONCE YOU GET ONE YOU WILL BE ON YOUR WAY. ACTUALLY IT WAS NOT HARD TO DO, JUST A LITTLE TIME CONSUMING. BE SURE TO DOWNLOAD A PARTS LISTS AND WATCH SOME U-TUBE VIDEOS. ONLY TOOL I HAD TO GET WAS THE AR WRENCH...YOU CAN GET IT EITHER ON LINE OR AT A GUN SHOP. PARTS ARE SMALL AND TEDIOUS, BUT EVERYTHING HAS A PLACE IN THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE RIFLE. AS I SAID, I DID MINE AND I LOVE IT. ACCURACY IS A PLUS UNEXPECTED. ALL IS GOOD! YOU CAN EMAIL ME BACK IF YOU WOULD LIKE. OH, I FORGOT, YOU WILL NEED A SMALL VISE, ONE THAT TURNS AND MOUNTS TO A TABLE. THAT IS ALL YOU WILL NEED. THE UTUBE VIDEOS WILL SHOW YOU HOW TO ASSEMBLE WITHOUT GETTING A LOT OF EXTRA TOOLS. A BRASS PUNCH KIT WILL HELP ALSO.
GOOD LUCK!

What type of red dot sight can I mount on this gun?
Peter P on Mar 22, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Basically any one you want. I would put a quality back up sight with it.
Can a different forearm be installed?
Larry on Jan 1, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes. However, some forearms may require a different barrel nut. Most free float hand guards will come with the required barrel nut.,
Is an FFL require for this item as it is component parts?
Edward N on Feb 11, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No. This will ship right to your door because there is no lower receiver.
Is this freedom rifle black?
Jack B on Jan 27, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Well, the title says "freedom rifle"..and its black... so no, its not the freedom rifle black, right ?
H buffer or carbine buffer? Milspec buffer tube or commercial?
Jason on Jan 5, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Carbine buffer and a milspec tube
What does it take to convert 223 cal to a 22 cal?
J E on Jan 1, 2019
BEST ANSWER: You need a conversion kit like the CMMG - AR-15/M16 22LR BRAVO CONVERSION KITS. Simply replace the rifle’s bolt and carrier with the Bravo .22 LR conversion unit, load up the included magazine with round-nose .22 LR ammo, and you're ready to shoot.
Has anyone tried a polymer lower?
Denver M on Apr 1, 2019

Norbert B on Jan 28, 2019

Quality rifle and fun to put together
I purchased this kit for my first AR and couldn't be happier. It took a couple hours to assemble with no prior experience. There are many good videos on YouTube to walk you through the process (and some tricks for the more difficult steps). I brought it to the range as soon as I could and fired 200 rounds without any issues.

Exactly what I expected and very pleased.
Easy build. All lower parts are organized nicely and easy to identify and install. Upper came fully assembled, just as your preferred rear sight or optic.

Functions great. No foul-ups. No quirks. No worries. Great buy.
Added a USGI surplus Colt Carry handle. Sweet little build

Awesome little carbine...
Bought this as my first ar build, and still loving it..the best thing about this kit is that it comes complete...all you need is a lower...my only gripe is that its a fixed gas check...shoots straight and true out the box no issues...
