No better completion of my build than this upper
For my first AR build I chose to use a completed lower and upper. That way all I would have to do is add a BCG and charging handle and I would be off to the races. I could not be more pleased with this upper! It looks great it functions properly and the price was right. The only "issue" was a little junk down the barrel when I received it. Ran a snake down it to clean it up added some lube to the inside of the upper BCG & charging handle & went shooting. Combined with PSA's "blem" lower with Magpul furniture my rifle is so much fun to shoot! Well done PSA!

Quality Deal
This upper is a steal with the MOE hanguard MBUS rear sight heavy stainless barrel plus a BCG and charging handle. The sum of the parts are greater than the price with free shipping. Have put about 200 rnds through it and I'm impressed. The fit and finish are top notch. I also chose this for the 1 in 8 twist you can shoot lighter bullets more accuratly. I highly reccomend it. With free shipping you can't go wrong.

So far this upper looks fantanstic
I had a loose PSA lower needing an upper and this one showed up on a weekly email blast. I have another 416R barreled upper with a 223 Wylde chamber from PSA and thought this looked like a pretty good deal. I was expecting another two plus weeks waiting for the upper. Surprise! Ordered on June 22 and had it in hands on the 28th. Now that's fast processing and shipping. Good for you PSA. Inspection revealed a very clean upper with a well-lubricated bolt. The gas rings are tight right now in the carrier but I am sure they will loosen up some after a few rounds. The Magpul handguard fits perfectly and the MBUS rear sight is a nice addition. The upper fits nice and tight on the PSA lower with no wiggle. Anxious to get out to the range and kill some paper.

Overall a great buy
Fit and finish were above my expectations! This upper was compared to my Colt upper and cosmetically and functionally was very close! The bcg especially the carrier was not as finely polished as the Colt but after disassembling and cleaning and lubeing it functioned well. One minor glitch was it was supposed to come with an MPI/HPT bolt but the bolt that came was not in this catigory so
I called customer service and PSA said that a new MPI/HPT bolt would be sent. Customer service was outstanding I am very pleased with PSA product and customer service! Thanks PSA I will surely order again!

Great mid range upper
Rec'd mine from Palmetto a few weeks ago. Have 40 rounds through it so far. Just got back from shooting it today last 5 shot group was 2 5/16" and I think I pulled the last one best 4 shrinks it to 1 5/8" using Hornady 55gr SP bullets in handloads (no load workup just threw some components together) which I think is great for a 16" barrel with irons and a 4.25lb single stage trigger. I did upgrade the front sight to a KNS .052" ball dunno how much difference that made though. Took off a star on quality b/c the charging handle wasn't that good seemed really soft and got pretty gouged up after hand racking the gun a couple dozen times bought a forged 7075 handle for 12 bucks that seems much better probably not worth the postage to send the original one back to PSA for replacement. Would buy again in a heartbeat and will be my go-to recommendation for others looking for a great quality to cost ratio. Word of warning I don't think PSA builds very many of these when I bought mind it went out of stock immediately and for a couple weeks and it is out of stock again now so if you're interested don't hesitate!
