Which lower would be recommended for the barreled upper?
David G on Apr 15, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Any modern milspec AR-15 variant lower should work fine. Brand dont matter, they all SHOULD be in spec, but not impossibly to find a weird one. With modern manufacturing that would be rare. Any PSA ar-15 lower will pair with the upper. Just make sure you know your local state laws for what is legal. A lot of confusing gray area stuff.

Just purchased 2 of these uppers, in regards to lowers, which would be a better fitment/functionality/durability?



Swiss on Jun 24, 2019
BEST ANSWER: If you are going to hunt or use it for accuracy, the EPT (polished trigger) is much better. If you are going to make noise at 25 yards buy the cheaper, crunchier MIL-spec trigger.
All I need then is a complete lower and ready to rock?
CHAZZ on Dec 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: You’ll need ammunition as well, and a rear sight if you want to hit a target accurately, but yes, the gum will work once you pin a complete lower to it.
Is the barrel 16" without the A2 flash hider?
Steve M on Dec 6, 2019

What rear sight works with A2 front sight?
GI 1952 on Sep 7, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I'm simply using an M-Bus pop up rear sight. I was able to sight in at one hundred yards with only one California legal magazine. This is a very fun rifle to shoot now because I get to hit what I aim at. So good luck and good shooting. You've got an awesome shooter for the money invested.

Is this a complete upper just match to 7779346 complete lower and I have a AR 15 ready to go to the range?
MarkM on Dec 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes Mark it is a complete upper. The only thing you will need to add is they type of rear sight you choose to use. I chose the A2 peep sight. Others choose some type of optics. Good luck and enjoy.
How do I change the front sight? I want to install the mbus gen 2 flip up sights in place of the A2
Larry E on Jan 16, 2020
BEST ANSWER: You remove the post and use a low profile gas block and freefloat hand guard. I have a few milspec like this and a few with the MBUS sights for optic back up. Really the only use the MBUS has otherwise fixed sights are fine.

Will this barrel work with a small gas block?
Charles on Dec 23, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I can't tell you,, as I don't plan on taking it apart, I put it on a PSA Lower and Put a Flip up rear sight on it,, as For gas Blocks, in general,, I'm very sure you can get a gas block, that will fit whatever you plan on doing to it. Note, Iron Sights/Gas Block, are on pretttttttty! Good,, so getting it off, will be some work,, and I just cut them off, and be done! Good luck with your Build!

Goatman on Dec 8, 2019

Very nice gun. Very inexpensive fun shooter
This has been my cheapest build so far and my most fun gun to shoot. I've shot like 160 rounds of Steel cased ammo through it so far with no issue. I haven't even had to use the forward assist yet. My only regret is that I didn't buy this sooner
