I got 3 of these with the blem lowers so far my family has shot 2000 cheap 223 ammo through these. I had a total of 3 feed issues which I blame only on my 25 year old m-16 mags from my army days once I bent the mag feed rails for the new M4 feed chamber those old metal mags worked perfect from 300 to the last cheap dirty round.. if you wanna actually shoot the shit outa rounds and not just outfit it and stare at it these are the answer we wanted to play as a family so we got 3 and are having a blast. its nice to know we have found PALMETTO. I would match these up to the colts anyday. the 1-7 twist does need a heavier round than 55 grain though. my brother bought a colt with a 1-9 and can shoot 55 grain and keep even 223 in a 1/4 inch group... I ran5562 then 74grain though the 1-7 twist before I got a shot group with in a 1/4 inch at 100 meters. from what I read this is normal. we love these. ofcourse all we have to do is step outside the house to unload... we live in the country. Go TRUMP!

SS FOR $ 269
Great SS UPPER FOR $269

Pallmento arms has gotten better as they have gotten bigger. That's a good thing that I hope continues! Quality & good prices are all I have expected from palmetto state.

5 Stars all the way Great product Fast Shipping!
I'm very impressed with PSA and their AR15 upper deals. Best value for the money. This order for the 16" Stainless Freedom upper with BCG/CH arrived exactly 1 week from when I placed my order. Product arrived in perfect condition and mated perfectly on my Anderson Lower. This is the second time I've ordered this same 16"SS Midlength upper and both orders were processed quickly and arrived in excellent condition. Will buy from PSA again and highly recommend them to others.

Another pleasant surprise
I have just received my upper and am astounded by the quality. My total cost with this upper and the MOE lower was $470!! That's with a Magpul stock and grip plus the premium nickle plated trigger that I said in my review of the lower was the best Mil Spec trigger I've found. I just will not understand why someone would pay $700+ for an AR 15 that isn't as well spec'd as this. The 416 R SS barrel alone is a $180+ item at most on-line re-sellers.

Great job PSA everyone at my club will hear about the quality service and value you provided.

Great lightweight upper
I was initially concerned with the weight i'm going for a lightweight build and I wasn't sure what they meant by "slim" profile. For those wondering this barrel is basically a lightweight profile that Slim's down from the fsb to the muzzle. the weight with bcg and ch is 3.882. You can easily build a sub-6 pound rifle with this upper.
I only have two complaints. The first is that it came much dirtier than I expected from PSA. Im new to the AR world but it looks like metallic dust all over the upper. In the barrel on the bcg and inside the receiver. An easy fix but I did expect it to be cleaner. The other problem is a bit more severe I would post a picture if I could. The handguards near the receiver end are split apart they just don't fit together very well. The Delta ring is lopsided which is most likely the cause of the problem. I know they aren't all like this so don't let it keep you from ordering but this is my first AR build so it is rather disappointing especially coming from a company as good as PSA. All in all I am extremely pleased with the quality and look forward to my build.

good ar15
bought on June 1st and recieved June 8th 2016 went together very well and after 200 rounds functions perfect I should have bought the 1 in 8 twist that my friend bought from Palmetto shoots 55 grain like a dream the 1 in 7 twist i bought really likes 69 grain. Overall great rifle hey I can put 10 rounds in 5 inch circle at 100 yards what more do I want? Well another Palmetto AR will do nicely. Thanks again

What Blemish?
I purchased one of these as a "Blemished" complete upper on special for $290... After an extensive search (inside and out) the only "blemish" I was able to find was a *tiny* raised edge of metal directly above where the charging handle latches... The shaft of a Phillips screwdriver rolled the edge back down smooth and a black permanent marker hid where the finish had come off the aluminum... The ding is *well* under 1/32" and I doubt anyone will ever spot the "damage" unless I point it out to them... BTW I attached this upper to a PSA lower with Magpul MOE "Slim Line" stock and grip... The upper & lower fit like a glove and the finishes are a perfect match... The resulting rifle is light and handles quickly... I haven't yet had the chance to fire this combination yet but at this point to say that I am pleased with my PSA purchases is an understatement!...

Perfect Fit
The upper I bought (507528) is a blemished version of this one. I pulled out the Anderson lower and the fit was PERFECT. Carrying handle and sling are in transit. I can hardly wait to get rounds down range. I built the lower with the classic lower parts kit from PSA and it works flawlessly on dry fire. Thanks PSA for helping us afford to be adequately armed.

As stated the pictures just do not do it justice. Amazing product I purchased on a flash sale for 267.99 with free shipping and no tax. Received 4 days after purchase mounted to my Anderson lower no problems. When I do my second build PSA will be my go to for resources.
