will 5.56 and .223 function in this build ?
wayne s on Aug 31, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Jiminy CHRISTMAS!!! How can people even CONSIDER buying a kit like this and not know even the BASICS of the AR and its chambering? Go use the GOOGLE and learn something.
Other than the FN barrels, does PSA make their own barrels in the USA?
Joseph P on Apr 24, 2018
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
BEST ANSWER: The description says, "MIDLENGTH." So, it's not 6" (carbine length) or 12" (rifle length). It's MIDLENGTH length, which is 8.6"
Does this upper come with a FN barrel?
D D on Apr 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, this upper has a 1:7 Nitrided PSA barrel with a midlength gas system. FN barrels are a part of PSA's "Premium/CHF" line.
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.
What are the barrel markings on these uppers? Are these Freedom line, or higher tier?
Michael M on May 30, 2018

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
BEST ANSWER: Yes. This kit includes everything but the stripped lower and a magazine
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.
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.

Do you recommend a Gen 2 Lower?
Richard on Mar 27, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I have used it with different lowers Anderson, spicks,80% and they all work fine
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.
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.
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
Does the upper receiver have M4 feed ramp cuts?
Peter T on Mar 25, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, where it says M4 barrel extension. That means it has M4 cuts. You need them in the barrel extension not the upper receiver.
On the description it shows that the bolt carrier group profile is full auto. Does this mean it will fire in full auto? I live in California and our law makers will have their panties in a bunch if I purchased one of these.
JOEL I on Mar 13, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It would be good for you to take about 5-1/2 minutes to search the Google for how an M16 functions to see everything else it needs besides a full-auto profile BCG to work.
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.

Identical to my M16
I feel like I never left the military and my weapon behind because this AR gives me the security that I have my buddy again.
Reminds me of the one I carried in combat.

Best Buy
Best deal I could find on PSA magpul furniture an rear rights included, rang steel at 100 yards without adjusting sights ( I’m sure I can still get it even better )

My first buy, first build and i can say i like it a lot. Does the job at the range.. what i love most about it is... i bought a few accessories to spiff it up and overall it's still hundreds of dollars less than the rifle's people are using at the range i go to and they end up wanting to shoot my gun to check it out.

Build the perfect carbine with this.
Excellent quality, exactly what I wanted in an AR carbine. To me, if you're getting a 16" barreled 5.56 AR, there's no reason not to get a mid-length. It looks right, and more importantly it moves the gas port a little further down the barrel, which is a good thing as far as AR carbine reliability is concerned. The Magpul furniture is superior to the standard furniture in every way, and I like the Magpul rear sight, which I use as the only sight on the gun. Optics have their place, but not every carbine needs an optic. I even remove the small aperture on the sight, leaving just the 0-50 meter ghost ring. Fast, light, no batteries, not bulky. I paint the front sight post fluorescent red and use 20 round mags. Perfect carbine.

Keep it clean and it will run.
It looks great. But after some range time it started short stroking. After about 45 rounds. I just decide to head home and clean it again change my buffer and spring. And I tried again. I'm not entirely sure what the issue was. But after a good cleaning and lubing. It ran fine. Im considering picking up 2 more.

This kit is well worth the money, everything fit together nicely and the packaging was very neat. I took it to the range and it was basically sighted in, shot perfectly with no issues. Highly recommend it!

Took about an hour to assemble, which wasn't bad for my first AR build. Knowing what I know now, could build in under an hour. Fantastic
