Can you put a bi-pod on this handgaurd?
Michael M on Jan 25, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes. There are several adaptors available online. Check brownells. you will need a forearm tool to get the forearm off and back on. Dont skimp to much on the tool. Again brownells. Harris makes the best bipod by far.

Good luck.

Great kit to build your striped lower. I did replace the upper with another and gave this one away as a gift. He is very pleased with it. He can make quarter inch pattern at fifty yards.

Fit my Anderson lower like a glove.
If you're looking for your first AR to assemble this product is great. All you need is to buy your stripped lower rear sight and mag to have a complete AR. I ended up paying about 450 total for my build. It's not going to be the nicest AR out there but it is nice enough to be a steal for only $349 while it's on sale.(just a heads up if the price is back to the original 499 or 599 you could probably spend that money and piece together a nicer upper) but for the sale price it's a no Brainer! I placed my order @9pm on Thursday and seen they had shipped it by 8am the next day from there it came in the mail about 5 days later so shipping was great! Only quality issue I see is the handguard wasn't lined up right And the quality of the BCG is nothing to brag about. I wouldn't hesitate to order one of their higher quality uppers after this purchase.

First build everything went great
Using an AERO lower I bought this kit for my first ever AR build. Everything went together well. Went to the range today to test the rifle. The gun functioned perfectly. Sighting in at 25 yards to start with open sights no problem. Bushnell red dot TRS-25 was 2" low and left. A fast adjustment and spot on. At age 63 my old eyes were happy with the results. I'm very pleased with the results and performance of this PSA rifle kit. If anything changes I will update this review.

( Already working on next project.)

love this kit
Ordered on weekend and had by the end of the week. Took less than a hour to build use a laser to sight in and shot great from the first shot. Used cheap ammo and it shot great my other AR is all over the place with steel case ammo but this one was dead on every shot. The finish was not the best it had some scratches on it.

Awesome kit!
Built this kit on a stripped lower that I got at rural King. This is first AR15 I have built. Took less than an hour. Got this kit on Black Friday sale. With iron sights I was grouping 3 shots under an inch at 25 yards. With a primary arms advanced micro dot red dot I was getting 3 shot groups in one hole at 25 yards. Was incredibly accurate. Was using xm193 ammo.

Excellent Kit
Ordered this kit during the Black Friday sale and finally got around to assembling this with my stripped Anderson lower. Everything went in smoothly and works properly but the only issue is that the screw provided with this kit for the grip is too long for the Anderson lower. Not a fault of the kit but the Anderson I run uses a 3/4" long screw instead of the 1" screw provided so I picked one up from a local shop. After I looked into some more information the lower parts kit was easy to assemble and everything fit perfectly into the lower and assembled properly. I ran 150 American Eagle 5.56 55 grain rounds through without any issues. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a good kit to use for a rifle.

Great deal
Bought it on Black Friday. Put it on an Anderson lower. Vortex Strikefire II red dot sighted in with 6 shots after bore sighted. No FTF or jams yet. Added magpul handuards. My first build. Followed youtube video but still got hammer spring on wrong. Found the fix on this website and it has worked flawlessly since. IMO it shoots as good as a gun costing 3 or 4 times what I paid.

ar 15
After I found the palmetto site I found some great deals. They have high quality items at a great price. I have three of the AR15 kits.I think the stainless steel barrel stands out the best.

Exceptional AR for the money
With so many choices for AR's out there it's hard to determine what to believe. I didn't know whether to buy a complete rifle or build one. PSA walks the talk the PSA 16" MID-LENGTH 5.56 NATO 1/7 STAINLESS STEEL FREEDOM SPECIAL EPT RIFLE KIT - Model 7780856 is an exceptional value for a high quality rifle. The kit came with all the parts needed to assemble to my Anderson Lower. The fit finish and attention detail is second to none! One minor problem was a 1" long socket head bolt was shipped for the pistol grip when it should have been 3/4" long. This was easily solved with a trip to a local hardware store. I added a folding Magpul peep site to get started.
At the range this gun proved it is more than just a good looking rifle it worked flawlessly (100 rounds). This is where fit and function work together to provide a high quality reliable gun. The trigger breaks crisp and is smooth allowing for tight groupings. The bolt cycled perfectly whether manually or when shooting. Double taps worked well with not even a hint of feed problems or jams shooting both re-manufactured and new ammo. I also ran 20 rounds of 5.56 though it the hotter load produced the same amazing results. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PSA KIT AND COULD HAVE NOT MADE A BETTER CHOICE EVEN BY SPENDING A COUPLE HUNDRED MORE!
