Can I use a 223 caliber with this barrel?
Keyguy707 on Sep 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes. 5.56/multi are 5.56/223. The only time you wouldn’t want to interchange ammunition types would be if it was a dedicated .223, then using 5.56 could cause problems due to pressure differences between the cartridges.....
Does the front sight come off to put a free floating hand guard ??
Danny O on Jan 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER: If you have the tools to remove the pins, theybcan come out. You may bebbetter off getting a railed upper from PSA and save yourself the work.
Does barrel have chrome lining?
Falco on Nov 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Unless stated, the barrels are not chrome lined.
Front sight ??
Danny O on Jan 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The front sight is a raised fixed sight, look for the triangle along the barrel. You will need raised scope mounts if you plan on using a scope or the sight will be in your line of view.
Will a regular/classic ar lower fit this?
Oscar Alexandre on Jan 21, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Definitely, AR15 lowers shold be milspec, all you do is push out the 2 pins drop in upper and push pins back into place. Military made it simple and interchangeable to swap out parts fast on the BattleField.
What kind of foregrip will work with this upper?
Breon L on Nov 12, 2018

Perfect for my build
I purchased this to add to an Anderson lower. It was initially a tight fit, but has since smoothed out and works great. My on ly issue (if you would call it that) was with the rear sight. I had to tap it onto the rail with a rubber mallet, but I read online that was commonplace.

This is the second PSA upper I've purchased, but it won't be the last!

Great upper for the price
5 stars for the quick and rapid shipment and delivery
I ordered the upper and lower separately and saved a good amount compared to the complete AR
Used that money for upgrades and I would say looks better than others, like M&P sport 2, straight out the box
Not to mention it comes with the Magpul gear, saves you money and time as well
Great deal, it’s even wife approved
