Bought this originally to replace the upper on my M+P sport one. Wanted the dust cover and forward assist.
put a cheap BSA scope on it and shot half inch groups at 50 yards all day long. Finally bought a PSA lower and have since put about 300 more rounds downrange. Groups are now all less than 1/2 inch at 50 yards. Plan to do some long range shooting in late October and will get back to you. Great upper. PS: have been using 55gr. and 62gr. ammo. Will try some heavier stuff soon as well. Up to about 500 rounds without a single FTF.

I bought this in the freedom kit almost two years ago approximately 650rds later not one hiccup to date. Groups staying consistently tight once zeroed keep her lubed and she stays happy :). I just ordered this again & I'm pretty stoked to get it as I already know what awesome quality to expect from such an amazing company. Thanks for all you guys do & allowing me to put more money towards ammo lol!!!!

Excellent upper for the money!!
I've had this one for over 2 yrs now and I've never had a single problem of any kind. It's mated to a PSA MOA EPT lower and has a PSA A2 carry handle REAR site. It's one of my favorite AR'S. BUY IT.

Complete upper
Upper is nicer then expected. Price is right. Haven't shot it yet since i just finished my build. Only issue i have is there is a small gap between the upper and lower which you can see light through. Not sure if that will have any issues when shooting. Overall im happy with my purchase. Fast shipping too.

7788890 - 1/8 SS Mid-Length freedom upper.
These are excellent. I ordered two. The fit and finish on both is good. Nothing close to what I'm going to put on the rifle during normal use. Mounted them on two PSA lowers with a magpul BUIS rear sights and headed to the range. One upper took two clicks to the left to get it zeroed at 50 yards and the other took one click down and one click left to get zeroed.

I'm not a genius or anything but that seems like a very nicely aligned receiver/barrel/front sight post.

Groups were outstanding at 50 yards. A lot better than I can do with my issues M&P Sport rifle.

Would have given 5 stars except for 1 thing
My only complaint is the triangular plate for the hand guard next to the front sight post. Why is it triangular? I bought an 11.5" upper before and it had a regular plate but this triangular one doesn't fit any replacement hand guard sets WTH??? Id rather pay the extra 10 bucks for something more common now I need to put a hold on my whole project buy a normal one and tear off the gas block what a pain. If not for this little hang up I would have told all my friends to buy one. Just charge an extra 10 bucks and use common parts I dont want to be stuck with a cheap handguard on such a great upper.

Fulfills its purpose
I bought this to attach to another lower that is on my "marksman" rifle to give myself options for self defense. The mid length gas system is supposed to shoot smoother with less wear and tear on parts. It definitely shoots smoother not sure on parts wear yet. I love the way it feels and the extra sight radius is nice as well. I need to scope it for accuracy but it is on par with every other AR I have shot or owned. I am very satisfied with it and hope to have it consummate a relationship with a PSA lower soon. The more AR's the merrier...
