Other than the FN barrels, does PSA make their own barrels in the USA?

BEST ANSWER: Yes, PSA barrels are made in South Carolina.
what is the handguard length on this kit 6 or 12"?
Kenneth B on May 26, 2018

wayne s on Aug 31, 2018

Are the freedom barrels cold hammer forged?

Can the front sight post be removed without changing anything else?
Daniel S on Aug 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This guy, Daniel S, has asked the forum 5 questions so far. 3 out of those 5 are asking, "can the front sight post be removed..." DUDE... what is is with you and front sight posts???
Why would you be buying a complete upper like this just to remove the front sight post? And if you don't already know if these front sight posts can be removed, you've got no business trying it.
Is this a complete kit? I only have my Lower and need to build. Does this kit have everything else i need?
Alfred C on May 22, 2018

Hi if i buy this kit can i use with different ready complete lower?
jose a on Oct 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, but if your lower is already complete you'll have extra parts. Go to the PSA website and look for the BARRELED UPPER ASSEMBLIES. There are a lot of choices so it depends on what you're looking for.
Will rifle kits ship to California?
Chad M on Dec 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Maybe... what day is it???
Hi what barrel finish recommend nitride or phosphate? And if i buy this kit its hard to assemble the lower?
jose a on Oct 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I personally prefer nitride for the sole reason that it is newer. You would be fine with either, the vast majority of people will never put enough rounds through their barrel for them to have to worry about replacing it.
Is it possible to get a 556 NATO 1/8 twist barrel in this kit instead of the 1/7?
Southpaw on May 16, 2018

Does anyone know what size buffer is in this?
Alexander G on May 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Mill spec tube, carbine weight buffer.
What is the trigger pull on this particular kit?
John D on Feb 18, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The EPT trigger is still, basically a mil spec trigger with additional polishing and a nickel coating, just like the description says. Mil spec triggers can have a pull weight from 7 to 9 pounds. The purpose of the EPT process is not to reduce the pull weight, even though it does. The polishing and coating are intended to smooth the pull and improve the break. The side effect is that the pull weight is probably down to 5 or 6 pounds.
Does the forgrip utilize original MOE slots or the newer MLOK style slots?
Mark F on Dec 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: They're Original MOE slots. Thanks
What is the weight on this AR ?
AR r on Jan 31, 2019
BEST ANSWER: For the money, these are the perfect weight. If you're looking for lighter, price a Daniel Defense or maybe a LaRue Tactical...
Do you have a left ejection port option with this model?
Craig S on Jan 24, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Oh come on... No, they don't have a left ejection port. 200,000 lefty AR shooters are doing just fine with right side ejection. It has a brass deflector. Get an ambi fire selector and go with it.
I bought this kit because I want to learn how to put it together. Are their instructions to assist me?
Debra M on Jan 20, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Debra, this kit will NOT come with instructions. BUT, if you Google anything around 'how to build an AR,' you will find more sites with step-by-step instructions on that than you could read in a lifetime. IF YOU GO TO YOUTUBE... and search for anything like 'how to build an AR,' you will find more start-to-finish videos on that than you could ever watch. If you go to the MidwayUSA site, Larry Potterfield himself has a full series of videos of the full AR build process (and he will appreciate your business). I hope you have an armorer's wrench and a good punch set. That's the least you'll need to finish the lower.
So besides the stripped Lower, this kit includes everything you need to fully assemble the AR-15?
Jacob P on Jan 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Absolutely. All else you would need is some sights, a mag, ammo, and I always recommend training.

PSA 556 Magpul rifle kit
The upper kit is really nice but the upper to lower fit left me with some headaches. They just don’t mirror up to each other as they should. Everything works now but it took a little tweaking and a lot of oil.

Happy so far
Great rifle. I got mine to make an M4 clone but with Magpul furniture. Parts kit was in good condition. Gun shoots awesome and functions well. The only trouble I had was that the takedown pins were very tight in my Aero precision lower reciever and I still need to sand them down or something to get them to fit better. I'm not sure if it's the pins or the receiver that is the issue.

Great products to build a rifle
Put together a great AR. I had the bolt carrier gro and Anderson lower so it went together in about 1 hour. I added a Red Dot sight and sighted it for 25 yards. A great price and shipping is fast. I actually bought three for the three lowers I had and now I have 3 more ARs. I have more than enough ARs now so no more but I would recommend this upper plus your lower and BCG.
