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.
Will this lower work with a 45 acp upper and Glock magazines?
Douglas H on Jun 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This is not a lower for a "pistol" caliber build. "Pistol" in this matter means it is a "rifle" build with no buttock included. Usually bought with the purpose of building a shorter than 16 in barrel to classify it as a pistol. Accepts only 5.56/223 magazines.
Can i add a pistol brace (SBA3) with the included buffer tube?
xXx x on May 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: you can attach the SB Arm Brace for the AR Pistol or the Tail Hook system made by Gear Head Worx. If you want to use the Shockwave Brace you should use their buffer tube but you can use the buffer tube on the pistol lower as is but it may slide while shooting causing problems.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?

If you’re thinking of buying, just do it!
I received and had lower receiver transferred from my local dealer on 5th day after my order for a flat $25 fee. That was only because of weekend, it would have been 3 days otherwise. Total cost ended up being $154.99 total. $130 for the lower and $25 transfer fee. You can’t beat that price. The receiver I got is well constructed, no blemishes, and fit and finish is perfect. PSA has good quality products and a proven track record, best prices, excellent customer service, if there is a problem, and fast shipping. No other manufacturer comes anywhere even close to the value for the price.

Very satisfied
This was my first experience with PSA, and I have nothing but good things to say about them. My upper and lower shipped fast, customer support was great, and the product itself meets or exceeds all expectations. I’ve only put a few hundred rounds through it, but I’ve had no failures of any kind.

Not bad for the money, just a basic pistol lower
I was surprised to receive my pistol lower without a foam rubber covering on the buffer tube. It came with a bare buffer tube.

I will now be looking for a pistol brace vs using it as is. The trigger pull is a bit heavy and gritty in my opinion, but will likely smooth and improve with use.

It seems to be properly assembled and functioning.

I also purchased a complete pistol upper in 300 B.O. at the same time. Haven't had a chance to get to the range and try the complete package for functionality or accuracy.

In my opinion and experience,, PSA offers generally good quality, basic AR parts and firearms for reasonable prices. I can't rate this item further until it has been used a few times.

Really A nice complete lower assembly for any Pistol build
complete lower assembly 556/223,300 blk out they all work fine with this lower, to buy all the parts and build a lower like this one would cost over $150.00 this usually sells for 129.99 great working lower for the price it is a multi cal. lower assembly
I have bought a few for my past builds, and saved money

Great value for the experience.
Good choice for a first AR pistol. It allowed me to find out a pistol is not for me without spending a lot of money. Will recommend for anyone prior to dropping a lot of money just to try it

I’d buy it again
Perfect. It’s not a “high” dollar lower but it fires every single time. The nice thing with the AR is youcan buy a cheaper lower like this and add upgrades.
