Nice little upper...
Overall I’m very impressed with this little upper. I took it to an indoor range and fired about 300 rounds of different types of ammo. It everything I gave it. I was worried about the accuracy with 55 grain bullets but the accuracy was almost moa. I was using open sights so it probably is moa. Overall very happy!

Fantastic deal on a great 5.56 upper.
Great deal on a really nice, simple upper in 5.56. Shoots perfectly and consistently.

Amazing deal!
I was trying to choose between a PSA or a Del-Ton mid-length upper for my classic build when this showed up as a daily deal for a price I couldn't refuse. It's been my favorite shooter lately- beating out my competition build because of its simplicity. It's been totally reliable and reasonably accurate. My only cons are that the hand guard feels a little cheap and for some reason I can't use other charging handles in it...

Best Bang For My Buck!
I figured this would be a good upper to have around "just in case". But after sighting it in and putting about 200 rounds through it I can't believe how smooth the action is on this "Little Beast". I have now put over 1500 rounds downrange and it continues to impress.
I may just grab a couple more "just in case'ers" because, you never know.

Very pleased
This is a beautiful product. I'm no "AR guru" but this is a quality built upper in my opinion. I'm very happy with this purchase, especially at the great price. To speak to the accuracy of the barrel is not something I can really do, since I recognize that me, as a shooter, needs to improve to get the best out of it. All I did was swap out the hand guard to the magpul moe and put on a UTG super slim rear sight. There was zero marring or assembly Mark's on the upper. It also came very clean without grease or shavings in it.
With the PSA complete EPT, moe, STR, lower and utg slim rear sight. 7lbs. Added moe handguard.
The freedom upper with changed out moe handguard.
With the PSA complete EPT, moe, STR, lower and utg slim rear sight. Added moe handguard.

Excellent quality, especially for price!
I'm not 100% sure if this was exact model I'd purchased, (I actually purchased PSA complete upper from AIMsurplus) as it didn't come with handguards. May have been a model with chrome-lined chamber/bore as well.. regardless, I ordered a PSA complete midlength upper assembly, mated it to a stripped lower I had previously assembled, and was quite pleased with quality, reliability, accuracy, and overall performance! Thousands of rounds through it, never an issue! So happy with the quality at such a good price that I'll be ordering another PSA upper/build kit ASAP! WOULD RECOMMEND TO ALL!
