Barrel: A proprietary blend of Hammer forged chrome molly vanadium made by FN that is referred to as "Machine Gun Steel" by virtue of its required use in FN's M249 and M240 weapons. The hammer forging process work hardens the steel, making it more durable. In addition, the chrome process for the bore allows for a lining almost twice as thick as a standard M16 for enhanced durability. Chambered in .223 Wylde, with a 1/8 twist, M4 barrel extension, and a Rifle-length gas system. This 18" A2 profile barrel is Mil-spec phosphate coated, High Pressure tested and Magnetic Particle inspected. The barrel is finished off with a 15" PSA Lightweight M-Lok free float rail and an A2 flash hider.

Upper: Forged 7075-T6 A3 AR upper is hard coat anodized black for durability. Featuring T-marks, these upper receivers are made for us right here in the USA.

Each upper is assembled to order with US-made parts, and test fired to check gas function. 

**Does not include bolt carrier group or charging handle.

Copperhead on Apr 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: 3lb 11 3/4oz without the BCG
Is the barrel truly thinner under the hand guards like a govt profile?
Sean T on Apr 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: A little, but the barrel is very substantial.
Can I use a mil spec buffer and spring? Or do I need rifle length?
Joe A on Jul 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The Mil spec is the carbine length. But you can use either carbine buffer & spring or rifle length. Either one should work ideally. Now if you have issue with one type, try it with the other....

Great parts but need more assembly care
This was the first of my FN CHF assemblies. I thank PSA for offering so much value but this thing came with a loose rail and a loose gas block that was tilted, causing the gas tube to touch one side of the rail. Further inspection showed no grease on the barrel nut. So once again, great parts but this one is coming apart for re-assembly.

Best Upper For The Money
Great upper receiver, ran 500-600 rounds through it non stop, getting snowed and rained on in 20 degree weather. Soft shooting, accurate, consistent. I was hitting about 0.5"-1.0" groupings at 80-100 yards. Love it.

Nice Upper. Excellent fit. Quite happy with it.
Nice upper. Mated it to a Palmetto MOE Lower. Added a stainless steel bolt carrier group and an Anderson Manufacturing charging handle. Fit and finish is good with the exception of one small spot on the barrel. Only I can notice it.
Looking seriously at purchasing another one of these uppers for another build. Will be mounting a 3.5X10 power scope on it soon to test it out at longer ranges and bench it to see how it groups.

Best Overall Shooting AR-15
I've had this upper (mated to a PSA lower with Geissele SSA trigger) several months now, and have put all manner of loads through it: 62gr handloads; M855(PMC XTAC, IMI); Hornady Frontier 75gr HPBT; Handloaded Sierra 69gr and 77gr MatchKing; and various 55gr factory loads. It shoots everything accurately (the only rifle I own that will do that). I am not a great shot, but if I am on, it easily will shoot sub MOA. Fit, finish, and reliability have been top notch. If you are limited to one AR-type rifle, I would highly recommend springing for this upper.

Blem upper at a premium price.
Everything good about this upper is true. Mine just happened to be shipped with a hand guard that has obviously been dropped numerous times. Finish isnscratched off and it’s not aligned to the receiver. I’m going to try to get it lined up later when I have some free time. If it was sold as a “blem” so be it...but it wasn’t. It would be nice to receive a credit for the difference hint hint PSA. QC seems to be slipping.

Good great shooting upper when you can handle the heat
I love the upper.. but I have built 5 guns with all different uppers. And this upper dissipates heat better than any of my other uppers that I have bought from the company and I'm like it alot but need a fore grip or gloves.if you just plink 30 rounds you can't even handle the hand rail is this how it should be? The other stainless and stuff was not like this.

Excellent, better shooter than I am.
High quality barrelled upper for the money. I've experienced no issues with this, and it's far more accurate than I am. This had everything I was looking for in regards to my last build: rifle length gas system, 18+ inch barrel, 1:8 twist, .223 Wylde chamber. Recommended for when you get bored of 16" barrels and carbine gas systems.

Great Upper
This is a great upper and a cheaper way to get yourself a quality rifle on par with high end manufacturers like BCM, Spikes, and FN. I paired this with a Spikes lower, slapped a premium nickel-boron BCG in it, and it's been good to go ever since. Mine is marked "FN, HF, MP, .223 Wylde, 1/8". This lets you know it is a real deal cold hammer forged barrel that is magnetic particle inspected. I liked the M-lok handguard but it's a little sharp.

FN, CHF, Chrome Lined Barrel/Upper Assy. Much more than than I ever expected!
CHF FN Barrell. There just isn’t any better in my humble opinion. Being a .223 Wylde is icing on the cake! This is exactly what I wanted for a do-it-all, multi-purpose rifle. Long enough for me tow reach out to 600yds with ease, and maintain sub-Mia accuracy at that. I am currently getting 4.5in groups at 600yds with Hornady 75gr match Ammo. This is my keeper AR in .223! I may need up selling my carbine/16in AR later, as well as my first AR which is a Ruger MPR with18in barrel also.
In closing, it is an outstanding upper with an FN, CHF chrome-lined barrel with extra thick chrome (Their advertising words, not mine). It will shoot MOA with match Ammo if you do your part. It will also do 1.5 to 2.0 MOA with generic Lake City, 5.56, M855 out to 500yds. That is if you do your part!
