What is the total length with the stock in? and out? Thanks
George H on Jan 31, 2019
BEST ANSWER: With the birdcage still on mine is a hair under 24.5 with brace closed and 27 extended. The upper is 17.25 alone and lower is 14.5 closed.
Will this function with subsonic Ammo?

BEST ANSWER: Yes
Why 1:7 twist, aren’t all the others 1:8?
Eddie on Feb 9, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Eddie, Some people say that the 1/7 twist rate is better for stabilizing heavier 300 blkout rounds (210-230gr). Some reviewer report that slower velocity (1100fps) heavy 300 blkout rounds are not stabilized by the 1/8 twist rate and will begin to tumble in flight. I have not fired it myself, just repeating the YouTube gods.
Would This Be a good upgrade for the smith&wesson Ar15 Sport?
Gary w on Jan 31, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Depends...... this is technically a Pistol upper, it needs to go on a Pistol lower, if you put it on a rifle lower theb its considered a SBR and thats illegal unless you have a tax stamp and paperwork for that.
hello i can use any stripped lower for AR15 to complete this kit ?
priyanshu k on Feb 13, 2019
Does this kit come with instructions on how to assemble the lower receiver parts to a lower receiver?
Shawn G on Feb 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No, but you can easily look up a video on youtube on how to assemble. It's very easy and you only need common tools.
I am wanting to install the Pantheon Arms/Dolos barrel takedown system on a 300BLK pistol, will it work with your handguard?
Chad S on Feb 8, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The dolos system requires a threaded hand guard. Yankee Hill rails have the same thread. I built exactly what you are thinking of and it is great.
will this shoot supersonic rounds without issue?

You can’t find a quality kit for less
I haven’t shot this yet, so this is just my initial impression. First, this kit is a really good deal for $329. I have dealer accounts at several online retailers and even with my discounts I could not assemble a parts kit like this for the price PSA is selling this for. I was initially only going to buy an upper and had already ordered a SBA3 brace, a K2 grip and everything else I would need. When these went on sale I changed my mind since I will use everything eventually. Paying the extra $60-80 premium for the entire kit vs just an Upper was a no brainer.

It is evident why the upper is sold at a budget price when you look at it. The finish inside the upper is a little thin compared to a premium upper and the rail is obviously a budget part. That being said everything is well finished. The rail is solidly attached and has integral anti-rotation tabs. Since most premium rails sell for over half the price of the kit, this is acceptable.

The only reason I’m taking off a star was that it was immediately apparent that the gas block is significantly canted. The gas tube is well centered though and doesn’t bind in the gas key. Overall I’m not sure if it’s just the gas block or the entire barrel assembly that’s canted. The Upper was obviously test fired, so I’m guessing it functions. If it does I’ll probably leave it alone. So, my only complaint is PSA should have a little more care during assembly.

Overall these are a great deal. If you are on the fence about trying .300 BO, you can’t do it cheaper. I’m glad PSA is offering 1:7 barrels and I’d like to see this across the board in their .300 offerings.

Good quality build kit. But...
This is an awesome build kit. However, I did have to dock a star for 2 reasons: there was a very aggressive machining edge on the bolt catch big enough to where it would not seat in its spot in the lower receiver. Had to take it to a bench grinder to grind down the excess metal (Pictures to come). Also I ordered the kit on a Friday and it didn’t even ship out until the following Wednesday. Aside from these small issues, I put about 50 rounds through my pistol so far (utilizing a “no step on snek” lower receiver from PSA) and not a single issue functioning so far. Used armscor 147 gr ammo along with some of my 125 gr hand loads. Locks back on empty mag and has a very stead 4 o’clock ejection pattern. Fit and finish are also very good. Overall, definitely worth buying.

Great Kit!
I had an extra lower and saw this kit and decided to pick it up. It's really nice! I was surprised with how well the enhanced trigger feels. You can tell a difference with it being polished. I usually change them out, but I might try this one for a while. Overall this is a great bang for your buck. I wanted to add another 300 BLK to the collection and this fit the bill. Can't wait to take it out!

Bang for the buck kit!!
Great kit for the money! Assembled my lower, slapped the upper on and away I went! Took my wife up the mountain to try it out after I gave the pistol a generous amount of lube being brand new. Functioned flawlessly! Not a hickup in the gitup lol! Put an instant smile on my wife's face and she was no longer mad lol! I live in oregon and it took almost exactly a week to receive in the mail! Probably one of the funnest ars I have! Not a lot of flash or excessive noise being 300 blackout. Can't go wrong with PSA. Their supplied trigger does seem better than a stock mil spec. Overall very satisfied! 300 rds so far %100 reliable!
