does the hand guard that comes with this have a triangular, or circular end cap? wondering so I can figure out if magpul replacement is possible
Bradley H on Mar 25, 2019
BEST ANSWER: My gen 2 was triangular, and 8 5/8 hand guard with a delta ring. I found a quad rail but was not drop in had to modify it extensively to fit but worked well. If you have som smith experience, hit up just rails in California, they have one modifiable that will work fine. Note had to cut the edge of the triangle edge down for enough room as it’s longer than the span between the lip and delta ring lock in point. Also mods are necessary to the lower half ridges to fit around the nut teeth. FYI, Magpul won’t work. Tried.
Would I need an adapter to mount a flip up rear sight on this rifle?
Super star on Aug 28, 2018

Extremely satisfied !
I was in Beaufort for my son's graduation from Parris Island and we stopped by the PSA store in Ridgeland, great people to deal with. I bought this rifle while there and it is a beauty, shoots great out of the box. Very knowledgeable staff, friendly and just a pleasure to deal with. Would definitely recommend their store and most definitely recommend this rifle. You won't be disappointed.

i am satisfied with Firearm, but.....
I am pleased with fit and finish, disappointing that no rear site was included. It worked flawlessly upon test fire and break in. Should have a detailed explanation of quality disassembling and cleaning instructions, maybe a video by palmetto for those who are experiencing this type of firearm for the first time. You tube is filled with opinions more so than keeping warranty intact on how to’s for this particular firearm. But I am satisfied,
Stock but added red/green dot barska.

Great bargain for your money. They are as good or better than the competition.

I finally got to shoot my AR10 today. Cycled Flawlessly, ejection pattern in between 2 and 3 o'clock. Load used, Hornady Custom 308 165 grain BTSP. Don't believe the reports of the AR10 having excessive recoil. The kick of this rifle is hardly noticeable. I guess the people who complain about excessive recoil have no experience shooting High Powered Rifles. This is an AWESOME RIFLE!!! The Best Deal on the Planet. I Love this rifle! It is a High Quality rifle, NOT second rate by any means. Don't hesitate to buy this rifle; you will be thrilled with what you get.

PSA PA10 is a great buy
Out of the box the gun is beautiful. Two things I will gig PSA on was the stock did not slide easily at all but no big deal as adjusting was just pulling the retention pin out and moving it where you want it. Second was the dust cover will not lock in place unless you push the pin in and close it. No big issue just a little aggravating. Took it to the range and it performed flawlessly. The gun is a great buy at the price PSA is selling it at. I read a lot of negative reviews regarding the PA10 rifle but have not seen any issues like those so far. 40 rounds Armscor 147gr FMJ shot as of 9/11/17.

Range report after 50 rounds
Couldn't resist this low price as I had long wanted an AR-10 type rifle and my previous purchases from PSA have all been excellent quality. I mated the PSA gen 2 upper to the PSA gen 2 lower with 10-round PMAGs slapped on an old carry handle sight and took to range. Fifty rounds later: Flawless feed & eject with TULA steel old Chinese steel Lake City ball and South African NATO ball. With the iron sights got 2.5" groups at 50 yards. I'm sure it will do better with better sights better eyes than mine (age 67) and a little handload tuning. Not a target rifle perhaps but a good hunting or defense rifle.

One personally negative issue I noted is that the blast is pretty serious with this short barrel. I typically shoot Garands and AR-15s. The blast with the M1 is attenuated by the long barrel and that with the .223 is negligible even with a 16" barrel. On the other hand the Mosin 7.62 carbine gives me real problems. And with this .308 in an 18" barrel even 50 rounds gives me a blast headache that lasts for over a day. Be sure you are not overly sensitive before you order it or have some plan for an add-on reducer. But with that single caveat which may not apply to everyone this is an excellent rifle.

Great price on great rifle...
I had my eye on this rifle for awhile. I wanted something basic of good quality and PSA delivered. I can't wait to get it out on the range. You will not find an AR10 of this quality for this price.
