What is the difference between a mid length pencil upper and a mid length light weight upper?

BEST ANSWER: Barrel profile is thinner. Lightweight refers to handguard
Does the total barrel length include the flash hider? making it a total of 16”
Nate B on Jul 19, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No... Barrel is 16". Likely a touch longer, the ones I am personally familiar with generally run 3/8 - 1/2" longer than a strict 16" cut, to allow the threaded A2 Flash Hider to be attached. If it was shorter than 16" the NFA rules would come into play regarding the attachment of pinned & welded flash hiders bringing total length to 16" or it would be a really long 'pistol' and could only be legally attached to a pistol lower.
Does this item come fully assembled?
Steve H on Aug 26, 2019

Great upper!!!
Great value and very accurate barrel. If you are wanting a quality lightweight AR build this is it. I like them so much I bought 7 of them!!!!!! So now when the family goes to the range they leave my rifle alone because they all have their own. All of them are tack drivers.

Very nice upper assembly
As with all PSA AR-15 items I have purchased, this upper receiver assembly makes me happy. The quality of the parts is very good, and the assembly mounted easily to my lower assembly. This makes for a good basic AR that should fit my needs for years to come. I added a red dot sight to the gun, which works well for the ranges I would expect to use this gun. The stainless steel barrel also looks nice.

Too Purdy for its own good!
After this one I had to get another just like it for it is Sweet & Light, and makes other folks at the range sit up and take notice. At least as accurate as I am and does well out to 500 meters.

Almost perfect.
Everything comes as stated. Only slight complaint I have is that the top of handguard only has the rear and front portion with a picatinny rail, which is fine on it's own, but the MLOK slots in the middle are too small to attach a short tail to, I wanted to attach a small rail portion to attach my pressure pad for my light. Top slots are too skinny and I had to mount on side, not a huge deal but I prefer it on top. Other than that the quality for the price cant be beat when it's on sale. Haven't shot it yet.

A Perfect Fit!
This was my first Palmetto upper ever. I put it on a Colt CAR-15 lower that I have had for 40 years. I added a CMC trigger and the first round was dead on elevation and one inch right azimuth at 25 yards. I was pleasantly amazed. It's nicely finished and sweet shooting. for less than $300. I am using the MBUS flip sight plus I have a Steiner 5X battle scope that I will add next. I am beyond pleased. Frank in the Or. high desert.
