Nice upper for the money.
Purchased on a Sunday night and was at my FFL by Friday. Not bad for free shipping. Maybe a little over-gassed, but took it shooting at an outdoor range so not too big an issue.

My order was delivered quickly and was well packed. The upper is in perfect shape and at a great price.

It's accurate to 400 yards. My Barrel is made out of titanium, so I guess it should last for quite some time. I was getting about 15,000 feet per second with 400000 grain bullets. I used it in space as part of the elite Space Rangers and it was a hundred percent reliable in the extreme conditions of space. I even took down a capital ship all by myself with me in my PSA Freedom rifle. Really my only complaint is that did not come in space camo, as that sometimes gave away my position.

Lowest quality I’ve seen from PSA.
Just received this upper. Lowest quality I’ve ever seen from PSA. Finish is poor. Firing pin retainer pin was so jacked out of shape I had to use pliers to remove it and it would not re-insert. Replaced it with a spare.

Great for the money
Great upper for the money. Accuracy is better than expected at the sub-300 price point. This is a great entry level AR however those looking to add sights or accessories may be better suited by choosing an upper with a M-lok or keymod handguard and a low profile gas block. I was new to AR's and did not know this when I purchased it however this will be the same of all uppers with the classic handguard and A2 front sight. The overall quality is great for the price and will likely return to Palmetto when I am in the market for another AR in the sub 500 price range. Shipping from Palmetto is a bit slow however this is something I knew when I made the purchase and feel that it is a worthwhile trade off considering they offer quality products at very reasonable prices.

Very good overall
This upper seems of great quality it fit on my Spikes Tactical Crusader Lower great. I haven't had a chance to shoot it yet.

One issue I ran into is the handguard retainer cap is of the triangle type. Which is fine but it won't allow me to use the Magpul Moe SL handguard I also ordered for this bill. I'm now on the hunt for a round retainer as well as having to pull the front sight block to replace it. I gave a 4 star review because this wasn't mentioned in the description.

Overall I feel like this is a great value. Just be aware this isn't compatible with the Magpul Moe SL handguard before you buy.
