Are those round holes on the handguard QD mounts?
Diane R on May 2, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes they are. One out toward the front and one at the back. My Magpul QD swivel popped right in. They don’t swivel however but stay oriented the direction that you insert them.
What the moa you guys getting ?
Jeff M on Jun 16, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I haven't totally zero'd mine in yet but I was getting 3 inch groupings iron sights at 100 yards and my eyes aren't all that great. I handed the gun to a friend and he took two shots. First one was about 2 inchs off and the second one punctured the edge of the cross hair in the center of the bull. Less than .5 inches iron sight.

GUY W on Jun 2, 2019

Pappy on Jun 20, 2019

does the .223 Wylde shoot both .223 Remington and 5.56 Nato?
Abel R on May 14, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes! it does shoot both. With more accuracy to the 223 side of things.
is this a heavy barrel, stamped hbar, heavy etc ?
Allen R on Mar 29, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Being a "A-2" profile, it is thinner between the receiver and the gas block, then thicker towards the flash hider. Sometimes referred to as a "government profile", I believe it was designed for good accuracy without the heavier weight of a heavy barrel, or "H-BAR" profile.
what else do i need to complete this build? just the lower receiver ?
John S on May 14, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Stripped lower is all you need.
Is this available in flat dark earth?
Jeff S on May 11, 2019
can you add rails to this hand
Ben R on Mar 23, 2019
BEST ANSWER: As this is an M-LOK hand guard, yes you can by purchasing any of the various items available from numerous manufacturers. Magpul makes both aluminum and polymer units in varying length.
Being a female, I'm weight sensitive, what is the shipping weight of the entire unit?
Cynthia N on May 24, 2019

I'm very happy with the rifle. I assembled it in about 3 hours (Never built one before) on a Omni Hybrid lower. It went together with no problems. Everything works like it should and it shoots great. I have 2 more lowers and will be ordering 2 more kits.

I love my new build. The only reason for 4 stars is that they sent me the wrong items the 1st time and being this was my first build it was delayed so that was the only negative. To make up they sent me a shirt and of course the correct item but I would have liked maybe a discount on my next potential order. But back to the weapon shoot's great and I love it, highly recommend.

Amazing kit, works perfectly as described.
I could not be more pleased with this product. Everything worked flawlessly right out of the box. Matched perfectly with a 5D Tactical lower. Thank you Palmetto for the awesome service!

PSA 18" Rifle-Length .223 Wylde
My first build. My son put it together, he's done several. It went together real easy, except for a couple issues. One cotter pin would't go through the bolt. With some slight bending, that was fixed. The other was the bolt catch. It fit too tight, which required heavy pushing and pulling to function. Decided not to send it back to Palmetto. Instead, out come the Dremel. After some fine grinding, the part worked perfectly. Fired 60 rounds, not one issue. Rounds cycled through perfectly. Bolt catch functioned correctly. Torn it down to check and clean the parts; all was good. I will purchase again from Palmetto.

Great build
Gun is 1 moa out of box with Winchester white box 62 grain hollow points. Functions perfect. Will change trigger out for the 2 stage and use this on prairie dogs out to 600 yards.

Just Can't Beat it for the Price
Amazingly smooth rifle. The Rifle length gas system on the 18" barrel had me concerned when I first ordered it. But the set up makes for an experience that is smooth as butter. The upper feels a lot lighter in your hand than it looks. 300 rounds this weekend. No misfires. No failure to feeds.
Probably the best value out there right now.
Quality parts. If you are wondering whether to order.
You can't go wrong. The magpul additions are a really nice touch as well.

Runs great
I paired this kit with a Spike's Tactical Viking lower and it feels and runs great. Had thought about doing a trigger swap but this trigger is surprisingly good for what it is and will be staying for a while. Overall I love both the look and performance and the price is great.

Great upper kit for the money
Can’t beat the price on this. I built basically a target rifle with this kit for around 400. The trigger is standard weight, not too gritty but if using this as a target rifle I recommend getting the reduced power spring kit ahead of time when you go to build the lower.
