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.

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.

This upper is beast
I don't know why people look at psa like they are lower quality stuff i have been dealing with psa since 2012 and have only received top notch parts this upper will not let you down finish is awesome fit is great on a anderson lower and had some nice groups at 50 yards with red dot I have tried other brands of AR stuff and they have done nothing but let me down psa has always come through for me and for that i will buy only from psa.

Buy this upper show it off to you friends they will be jealous and wishing they would have got this besides spending 1 or 2k on some high dollar ar.

Great product high quality & value
I'm so glad I found PSA a few years ago. Consistently great products for a 1/3 cheaper then the competition. This was my first 'build' and was very pleased with this upper. Everything looked great and could tell this was a quality built upper. Mated it with a PSA blem lower and I had a spare PSA BCG and charging handle. All went together smoothly and tight without any issues. At the range it performed flawlessly with all the other PSA parts. Definitely pleased with this upper and entire PSA build. You can't beat what PSA delivers for the price. I just hope they stay around for a long time as there my go to site especially with the weekly deals. Keep it up PSA!

you get what you pay for
Caught this upper assembly on a great sale with free shipping . Took the normal 15 days to receive it nothing new with Palmetto . No real damage dents dings scratches or anything . Has more play mated to all my lowers than any other upper I own including my CHF upper I got from palmetto . Took to the range finally and had horrible grouping with 55gr and 62gr bulk ammo . used some hand loads of 55 62 and 77 and the group came together . put well over 300 rounds of cheap ammo to "break in " . BCG sticking and a lot of FTF and FTE . The more rounds went threw it the less issues happened . Best group was 1.25" at 100 yards with hand loads . Hoping it breaks in more and I can run cheap bulk ammo threw it because that was the plain the whole time with this upper . For now on I will pay little more to get the better quality .
