Several of the reviewers stated this upper was accurate, please elaborate on the accuracy as well as the type and weight of the rounds. Rich L & Paul B, please give some insight from your experience. ???
Arthur F on Aug 31, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Off the bench at 200 yards using match grade ammunition it will hold about 4 inches, so it’s a 2 MOA upper.
I just ordered this upper. What kind of real shipping time can I expect?
Ed C on Sep 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: 2-14 days, depending on multiple variables
Is the barrel nitride finished inside the bore and chamber?
Mike from CA on Sep 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Nitride is a bath that treats the entire barrel surface inside and out
hello the pic for this 20 inch A2 upper shows a round front retainer plate for the handguards but some people are saying it comes with the triangle end cap I need it with the triangle end cap but pic shows round want to buy it but know how my luck is can somebody from palmetto state say 100% either way ??
mike c on Sep 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I personally ordered one and it came with a triangular end cap to fit M16a1 style furniture on it. I was worried as well and took a chance after reading some of the comments on PSA.
Is the carry handle detachable?

Will this fit a knight armament m5 RAS rail?
Christop on Aug 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I just received my M5 RAS from Knights Armament today, and can confirm it does indeed fit on this upper. Just make sure you follow the install instructions because it's surprisingly difficult to get on properly.
Do these have the PSA logo on them?
charles on Feb 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I answered this earlier but I checked to make sure and there is no marking on this upper
What type of profile is the barrel? HBAR or government profile?
Kittiphong X on Sep 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The PSA 20” Nitrided barrel in mine is a government profile.
Does this upper come with the front triangle end cap?
Ed C on Aug 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: yes it does. the psa classic handguards are not quite round on that end, so they fit original triangular end cap
JOE C on Feb 20, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I can’t say colt for sure but, I have used psa uppers on numerous different manufacturers lowers and never had a problem. I’ve built over a 100 ar’s and the juggernaut was only one that I can think of that didn’t fit the mil spec lowers that most are. Hope this helps
Can this be put on a PSA 16” AR?
Fixie2work1 on Feb 18, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes. Any upper can be placed on the same lower receiver. Just remove the takedown pins, and swap uppers.
How long is the hand guard? Can I put a 12" triangular retro hand guard on it?
Tony C on Dec 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I've used everything from the A1 Triangle hand guard to full floating Trinity Force rifle length on it. If you have the HBar barrel you will to trim the heat shield on the triangle set up near the front sight. I believe the standard A2 profile will fit with without mods
Can you put the a1 handguard instead of a2?
dig d on Apr 23, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Absolutely looks great on mine
Does this upper have the correct 8/3 rear sight assembly or does it have the 6/3 rear sight assembly?

BEST ANSWER: From every AR i have ever seen the A2 with fixed carry handle will be 8/3 and every A4 which this is"I dont care what they call it,It is an A4 style."have a 6/3 with detachable carry handle.

Poor man's service rifle.
Bought this to practice for military EIC competition and some CMP hi power shooting. I loaded some 77 grain sierra mtchkings and it holds a .80 group at 100 yards. At 600 yards It did about 6 inches average. It does seem to be over gassed as it throws brass far to the 2 o'clock position and recoil is a little sharp for a .223 but who cares, it was cheap.

Front Sight is Canted to the Left
Rifle will not zero @ 25yds, windage is cranked almost totally to the right, spotty accuracy. Using the carry hand on the receiver and a BUIS on the forward rail (I put a A4 style quad on it) and looking through both peeps its obvious the front sight is canted to the Left. Processing a return/repair on it now.

Buy this!
I bought this upper when it was on sale. This shoots about 3/4 an inch with 62 gr federal ammo. I would buy this agian. Great price! One thing I gotta say though is I wasn't a fan of the marks on the upper itself so I put my DD upper receiver on it and the pins for the Gb and barrel nut were installed by he man himself!

I was into A2s before A2s were cool!
This upper was almost what I was looking for. For the price, I was willing to accept the detachable handle (I'd prefer it built into the upper). My rifle is accurate and such a smooth shooter. I wouldn't go and do mag dumps in this rifle, but it's perfect as a field gun that also fortifies the old household defense.
