What will I need to use as a 9mm pistol besides the complete upper. I asking about the magazine. Some I see takes a glock or colt mag. What would this lower use?
Jeremy M on Apr 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Need to get a mag well adapter to run 9mm out of this lower.
Can this lower be used with 300 blk out upper?
Brad B on May 1, 2018
Will I be able to simply buy a shockwave brace and slide it on or will I need to remove the buffer and replace it and then install a shockwave brace?
Trygve V on Apr 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: it should fit, if you have the foam on the buffer tube it needs to be removed first, the brace is a rubber compound and you might need to add soap to slide on.
Can i add a pistol brace (SBA3) with the included buffer tube?
xXx x on May 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: no. The SBa3 attaches to a carbine buffer tube.
Will this lower work with a 45 acp upper and Glock magazines?
Douglas H on Jun 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes. You just need a magwell insert. I have an ar15 pistol lower with the 9mm and 45acp insert. I take then out to go back to 300 blk or .223.
Can I use this lower with 5.56 barrell?
Monkey on Oct 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I’m not a gunsmith but I believe that your question is whether the buffer spring is strong enough for 5.56. I run a 300 AAC upper on mine & it works very well. I suspect you would have no problems running a 5.56 upper on this lower
Would complete 7.62x39 uppers fit this lower?
Don C on May 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes. This is a multi caliber pistol lower. If you purchase this lower for a 7.62x39 upper, you will need to purchase a 7.62x39 magwell block for it to take 7.62x39 magazines.
Will this fit a .556/.223 Wylde upper from CBC Industries?
azitaz on Sep 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, both are mil-spec parts and will fit correctly.
Is this listed as pistol or other for the 4473?
Jessie C on Jul 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It is listed as a pistol, classified as a pistol from PSA.. Says pistol right on the box.
Only a blank receiver is typically listed as Other from my experience.
will this work with 223 ?
leonard c on Oct 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes. Anything that takes a standard .223 or 5.56 magazine will work with this lower.
Is ffl needed for this item?
cliff k on Oct 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes you’ll need to have it shipped to a licensed FFL close to you.
Can a .308 upper be used with this lower?
Roy O on Oct 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It will not work. The magazine well will not fit a .308 magazine. It is designed to fit .223, 5.56, .300 blackout, etc.
Can this lower be used with the PSA 7.62x39 upper?
Ryan E on Jul 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it can. Total plug n play. PSA’s systems are cut just right with little or no issue. My PSA 16” upper installed to my lower in seconds. 500 rounds through and counting! Hope this helped!
Does this have a single point attachment? For a single point strap?
William G on Jul 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Double on mine. Click on picture to see expanded view. You can attach your single point strap to either side.
Can you make a .40 caliber with this lower???
Michael L on Oct 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: What you want is the PSA PX-9
Billet Complete Classic GLOCK Style Pistol Lower SKU 516447191
Note 9mm and 40 mags are the same external dimensions. It would be nice if PSA made a 40 SW upper but I have only seen 9mm
Just got mine. Has no castle nut to lock the buffer tube. Doesn’t need one?
Melvin K on Oct 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: no does not need one but it would be nice to not have to check
tightness so often
Is this automatically registered as a pistol when I do the transfer paperwork with my local FFL? or do I need to do something separate?
paratrooper on Sep 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It is registered as a pistol lower when you do the paperwork. No need for any other paperwork.
Is the buffer tube milspec or commercial?
Eric22 on Oct 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I would say commercial because the military does not use pistol buffer tubes.
can this lower be used with a rifle build??
ed m on Oct 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes it can just change the buffer tube. To a one that extends.
What is the difference between the ar pistol lower and any other at lower?
Billy D on Oct 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Not much. It will come with a pistol buffer tube which will be smooth and not be able to accept a butstock. You can easily unscrew it and affix a mil spec tube to fit a SBA3 brace or a KAK industires tube for there blade. Will those braces you can run short barrels as it's a "pistol" not a rifle everything else is the same as any other lower aluminum and accept 30 round mags. Not much diffrrence.
What's the difference between the classic, EPT and MOE pistol lowens? Thanks.
Mr. L on Aug 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: EPT=Enhanced Polished Trigger, it's just an additional option.
Can you ship it to California?
Moses on Oct 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Read the PSA Policy page. It states this relative to this complete lower receiver. "Complete AR and AK receivers will NOT be shipped to the following states:
Is this a mil-spec lower?
Jim S on Oct 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: As milspec as it gets. Works great.
What size buffer does this have?
Andy From TN on Jul 1, 2018
if i attach a 10.5 upper to this will it be 26 inches long?
kolby r on Jun 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have this lower, the OAL of the lower is 14.5", I have the 8.5" upper attached with an OAL of the entire setup at 24 3/8" So a 10.5" upper should surpass 26" (without a brace, a brace will add an inch or 2)
Will 6.5 grendel bcg & charging handle with upper in 12" fit this lower? It does say milspec However curious bc it's a larger velocity round.

Great milspec pistol lower
Certainly recommend this low price complete lower. It’s makes the perfect truck gun when mated with a 10.5” upper. I put a rubber stool foot on it so it stands up easily in a corner. I replaced the trigger guard and grip with sniper grey magpul parts but it’s perfectly functional with out those. I just hate how a milspec trigger guard digs into my middle finger.

Very pleased with this complete lower. Will buy again
Literally arrived the next day. Great shape no blemishes. Everything is nice and tight and seems to be good quality including the lower itself. Decent trigger to be the basic trigger kit. I ran a few mags through it as soon as I got it home and all the lower parts seem to be in good working condition so far. Definitely recommend it for the price and will definitely be buying another for my next rifle.
