Does this upper have round or rectangular handguard retention in front?
bonegunner on Jun 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Mine came with a rectangular handguard front. However, it is easy to remove. I removed mine and the A2 front sight and installed a low profile gas block and a free floating handrail. As you know, the options are endless.
Can the front hand guard be removed/replaced?
James Z on Jun 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Sure, comes apart in 2 pieces like a clam shell. You can find plenty of videos and resources on the internet to show you how. There are special tools to make it easier, but they aren't absolutely necessary.

More than what I paid for
Black Friday two years ago.
$230 for everything.
Milspec bolt carrier and MPI bolt.
2500 rounds.
Minute of man accurate.
Short strokes and FTE while magdump hot.
Gas ring on bolt failed recently, still fires.
I bet if I put a lighter buffer in and replaced the gas rings the malfunctions will stop. But it only happens while hot stupid hot. Like 250-300°F hot. I turned the barrel yellow lol PSA please send me free parts lol

I liked it but it wasn’t reliable. Should rate 2.5.
Ordered this with a Ni-Boron BCG. I really like it but it jammed 3 times. Lubed the BCG where it’s supposed to be. 1st 8 rounds of moly coated 68gr Mstch, and jammed. Took it home and got it opened. Cleaned and tried again, Federal 55gr, 2nd round jammed, then 3rd. The bolt seems to be slightly hitting the barrel lugs going in. Gas tube may be off slightly, or chamber may not be to specs. I don’t have any go/no go gauges. Sent it back for repair. It was grouping tight, and I liked the stainless Barrel. I hope PSA can fix it. I had it mated to a RRA lower with a Gisselle trigger.

Very nicely built upper and it's stainless steel ! A great price point and to top it off, free shipping ! Couldn't resist, so I bought two.

Love it!
Fit just fine with my Del Ton lower and looks fantastic! Very accurate as well with about any bullet I've put through it so far.

Functions always and shoots okay, need to spend a little more time figuring what type of ammo it likes. So far 52 gr. hpbt sierra shot better than 55 gr vmax.

Great value
I really like the quality of the receiver. I have only test fires it with about 60 rounds so far. I can't attest to the accuracy or reliability of it yet. I would highly recommend for the value.

Very Impressed
I purchased this for my 1st AR build on a budget and I am extremely happy with the performance and quality! I am new to the AR platform and so I cannot tell you anything about MOA or any similar data. What I can share is the upper fits very well to my Anderson Lower and I can't find any blemishes on it. The barrel pit free and smooth (exterior) and the rifling looks very uniform. I have fired under 300 rounds with it to date and I know that is nothing at all. From what I have experienced with it is once the Iron Sights were adjusted the groupings are very tight. I have since added a scope and sighted it in and the groupings are even tighter many hitting the same hole repeatedly. This is both at a bench and standing no bench vises etc. I have only fired it at my local range and I have received many compliments on the groupings and the stainless steel barrel. Once I disclosed how much I paid and where I got it the other shooters were shocked and impressed! My intended purpose for the rifle is mostly plinking and learning. Overall I am very pleased with the Palmetto Full Upper and I have started sourcing out my second build.
