Introducing the Palmetto State Armory Elite GX-9 Limited Edition Series

The PSA Elite GX-9 Limited Edition Rifle was designed with the Pistol Caliber Carbine enthusiast in mind. Each component was selected after rigorous tests from multiple PCC competitive shooters.  The Elite GX-9 Series is factory ready to perform.  All that’s left is your choice of iron sights or optics.  If you decide to co-witness, the Devil Dog Concepts Hard Charger Tactical side charger allows this without reconfiguration or movement of the device.  The DDC Hard Charger Tactical also assists with smooth reloads while allowing the rifle to stay in the ready position.  This, combined with both the smooth cycling Armaspec Silent Recoil System and the SJC Custom PCC compensator allows your sight picture to remain in focus and your barrel to stay steady even using major power factory loads.  During our research we found the major concern of any PCC configuration is weight.  Our goal was to make the rifle light enough to swing during fast transitions but not so light that the recoil caused excessive movement of the sights.  Weighing in at only 6.27 pounds, this rifle is perfectly balanced and tuned with the compensator resulting in an extremely smooth shooting carbine which allows for quick transitions and little to no recoil. 

Lower Receiver:  PSA GX-9 Billet Lower Receiver

Machined from Billet 7075 T6 Aluminum forgings and then hard coat anodized, these lowers are purpose built to accept 9mm Glock®-style magazines.  Lowers have been custom cerakoted with a Metallic Black finish. Non Last Round Bolt Hold Open (LRBHO).

Upper Receiver: PSA Slick Side Upper Receiver

Machined from Forged 7075 T6 Aluminum, this upper is hard coat anodized and made for us right here in the USA by a Mil-Spec manufacturer.  Upper receiver has been custom cerakoted with a Metallic Black finish.

Barrel: Craddock Precision 16" 9mm Match Grade Stainless Steel Barrel

Precision machined from Shilen blanks, these barrels are truly a one-of-a-kind masterpiece.  Designed strictly with the competition shooter in mind, these barrels are capable of showing what the highest standards in barrel accuracy and quality truly are.  In order to achieve this high level of performance, the bore must measure within .0005" of Shilen's standard diameter and the groove cannot vary in diameter more than .003" for the length of the barrel.  This match grade barrel is completely stress relieved.  With no true rivals, this match grade barrel is the best choice for many forms of competitive shooting.

Barrel has a Burnt Bronze Cerakote finish to provide accent to the Metallic Black Cerakoted upper and lower receiver.

Handguard: Custom Lancer 13.75" Carbon Fiber Handguard With Palmetto State Armory Logo

This handguard was selected due to its' ultra-lightweight Carbon Fiber make up and its' ability to help manage barrel temperature through its' cooling slots.  The handguard is a free float design comprising of a custom octagon shaped carbon-fiber tube connected to the upper receiver with a 7075-T6 aluminum upper receiver extension.  M-lok slots were added to allow for the connection of accessory rails, as well as cooling slots to manage the barrel temperature.  There are also slots at the six o'clock position and holes for a sling swivel stud.  Inside diameter of the handguard is 1.7".  Outside diameter is 2.0".  Handguard is finished off with a custom Palmetto State Armory logo engraving.

Fire Control Group: PSA AR-15/PA-10 Enhanced Polished Trigger

We start with our standard single-stage government-style fire control group, finely polish the contact surfaces and then coat the hammer and trigger in a super slick nickel finish.  The result of this process creates a trigger which is exceptionally smoother than Mil-Spec and perfect for providing the shooter with enough confidence they need to take precise shots where accuracy and speed are crucial on competition day.

Stock: ATI Tactlite Adjustable Mil-Spec Stock

Made out of DuPont® extreme temperature glass reinforced polymer and weighing in at only 5.75 ounces, this stock is purposefully designed to eliminate horizontal and vertical movement on the buffer tube.  Through smooth and secure stock attachments, there is no need for secondary locking mechanisms.  The design of this stock has absolutely no snag points or interference with the charging handle.  The stock includes QD attachment points on both sides of the stock and a slot for a tactical sling attachment.  Proudly made in the USA.

Charging Handle: Devil Dog Hard Charger Tactical

The Devil Dog Tactical Hard Charger is a patent pending Picatinny mounted side charging handle system that mounts to a specified section on the Picatinny rail of any standard, forged, flat top AR-15 rifle and replaces the existing charging handle, turning your rifle into a side charger.  Made from 7075 T6 Aluminum, stainless steel, and impact resistant polycarbonate, this tactical side charger weighs less than 5 ounces.  The ultimate benefit of utilizing this side charger is you will not have to move your rifle off target during the reloading/charging process.

Buffer/Recoil Spring: Armaspec Stealth Recoil Spring

The Stealth Recoil Spring™ SRS™ is a self-contained multi-stage drop-in replacement for your standard buffer and spring. The Stealth Recoil Spring™ is designed to reduce felt recoil as well as keep the buffer spring from rubbing against the inner wall of the buffer tube. The buffer mass is designed to stay under constant tension against the bolt carrier and the O-ring on the head of the buffer mass prevents metal on metal contact.  The polymer bumper goes towards the rear of the firearm and the weight mass with the O-ring goes towards the bolt carrier.  This recoil spring system weighs only 5.6 ounces.

Magazine Release: Odin Works XGMR-1 Extended Magazine Release

XGMR from ODIN Works is the one accessory your AR Glock-Style pistol caliber carbine needs.  XGMR is a one piece replacement for your factory magazine release.  The extended paddle on the XGMR makes gun handling easier for all shapes and sizes of hands and is designed to work with the BAD lever.  Made from 6061 Billet Aluminum.
