I never see 7.62 x 51 mm mentioned. Is the not suitable for use in this rifle?
Chris H on May 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: 7.62 x 51 can safely be fired in .308 since the .308 is a higher pressure round
Can this be made California compliant?
Elmer L on Dec 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: yes , once you remove everything but the front sight. Hope this helps.
Does this have a flip up rear sight?
Scott R on May 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, but I recommend the one AIM SPORTS sells that looks like a GG&G copy. It works great I have a bunch
Can this be shipped to California?
Tim G on Jul 8, 2018

Chris B on May 27, 2018

tom l on Jun 4, 2018

BEST ANSWER: No this is a fixed sight
Is this a complete rifle or does something else need to be purchased to complete?
Ronman564 on Jun 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No rear sight
How is the fire control group ? Would an EPT trigger make much difference?
edward h on Jul 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The fire control group is a standard Mil-Spec AR-15 trigger group. An upgrade to an EPT definitely produces a noticeable difference. It is much smoother and has a lighter trigger pull over the Standard FCG. Well worth the money.
Can this rifle be shipped to California as is? I understand the magazines may not ship with it.
Wilbur1035 on Oct 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No. This rifle is illegal in the people’s republic of California
How long is the hand guard? From barrel to front post sight.
Chase on Jan 27, 2019
Can this rifle be purchased with a factory installed adjustable gas block?
Danny on Oct 8, 2018
Can you get 30 round magazines for this rifle?
Jim M on Dec 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Gun Mag Warehouse sells a 30rd mag made by Promag. I have not had good luck with that brand. I use Magpul 20, 10 & 5 rd mags
ASC & CPD make 5 & 10rd mags which are also reliable. I shoot mostly from the prone or benchrest position and use 5 & 10rd mags.
I believe that Magpul also makes a 25rd mag for this rifle.
What kind of accuracy can I expect out of the box?
Jim A on Feb 26, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The photo of the target in the review section is mine, shot at 50 yards with a carry handle rear sight taken off one of my 556’s with no adjustments. It will certainly shoot better than my 60 yr old eyes will allow.
What magazines does it use?
Doc G on Jan 26, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I use Magpul (LR 308/SR 25) pmags 5, 10, & 20 round mags as well as dpms 4 round mags without any issues.
Does the front sight block red dot scopes or any scopes?
Eichenholz K9 on Dec 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I can’t speak for red dot but I’ve got mid rise mounts for my scope. The scope is not able to focus on the front sight because it’s too close so you really don’t see it much. All you are able to see is a slight blur and that decreases when you increase the zoom on the scope.
Does it have a forward assist?
Michael W on Apr 1, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes it does.
What type of scope/sight mounting does this have?
Melanie H on Sep 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It is a flat top receiver, you can use a flip up or fixed rear sight, a scope riser etc. I personally removed the front sight and installed a different gas block so I didn’t need a riser to keep the front sight from interfering with my view
Can I attach a rail section to the bottom of the hand guard?
Fred G on Apr 5, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I changed the hand guard, they are priced reasonably
Will this rifle take a LaRue tactical MBT-2S replacement trigger?
Stewart S on Jan 11, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It will and it makes an incredible difference. I love that trigger
Would a 5/8 x 24 muzzle brake fit on my PSA pa10 Barrel?
Meich T on Nov 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes. I put a 5/8 x 24 aac suppressor brake on mine
What is the muzzle thread diameter and pitch? Hopefully 5/8"-24
goofypettiger on Oct 7, 2018
Is this rifle fully functioning out of the box?
Earl T on Mar 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I haven't shot it yet. I fully expect it to go bang when I do.
Can this be converted to lefty?
Loops on Feb 16, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No, A left hand conversion would require a new Left side ejection upper receiver and a left handed bolt carrier.....I know of no-such conversion on the market......if's cost would be that of the PSA rifle itself.
Is the buffer tube mil spec or commercial spec?
Lewis H on May 17, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It’s a mil spec buffer tube, to the same spec as in the AR-15. Next

Jetfixer on Sep 10, 2018
will it accept a DPMS Keymod free float hand guard?
Randy R on Jun 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The handguard is DPMS low pattern. As long as you get one of those it will work. But you'll also have to replace the front sight block with a low profile gas block

This rifle is a beast. The stainless steel .308 barrel is bad-ass. I videotaped rapid-fire at 3000 fps, there was almost no flex at all.
This was an excellent purchase even at twice the price!

It sends lead, needs a bit of work.
Upper and lower fit is tight, trigger is mil-spec so pretty awful, shot 5 rounds and it cycled 150 grain Speer reloads good. Only problem I have is the bolt catch does not engage well so a bump to the receiver can the bolt smashing forward. I saw a video of a guy grinding his upper to fix this but I am not ready to do this yet maybe wear will make it work after break-in.

Runs well
No complaints. It's an AR10, I haven't had any jams yet in a few hundred rounds of admittedly cheap .308 ammo. Good accuracy out to 100 yards (longest rifle range in the area unfortunately). Does everything it's supposed to do.

No regrets, amazed and loving it
I highly recommend this rifle for minimalist such as myself. This is heavy duty, high quality and I am tearing up my range with this bad boy. The most awesome part is the price! This was an impulse buy as a matching set for my woman and I for our anniversary. I was a little nervous, because I have never purchased from PSA. However, now that they have been seen many rounds on both rifles, I love that I took that chance. Amazing buy! Thank you PSA!

Good Rifle and Good Price.
This is my first AR-10 and so far I'm impressed with it. I haven't shot it yet but fit and finish are outstanding. Trigger pull is a little stiff but still nothing some polishing cant fix. Only complaint is it didn't come with a 25rd mag as it stated in the add. I will update this review after I shoot this rifle.
December 10, 2018
Excellent AR-10 on a budget
I was very impressed with the quality of this rifle for the cost. My shot grouping was consistent and the rifle has performed flawlessly to date. I bought it for a new deer rifle and have already bagged a buck. 80 yards, one shot. It was almost too easy. The original handguard feels a little flimsy so for $35 I did upgrade to a Magpul M-lok handguard. Other than that I have no plans on making anymore changes at this time.

I put a Magpul UBR stock on this rifle and the bolt will not lock back on the last round. Is there any way I can make this stock work with this rifle. The bolt and spring bottoms out in the buffer tube and has no more room to lock the bolt catch.

Great gun for the money!...... sob m.o.a QUALITY ammo
I actually purchased upper and lower separate because I wanted the magpul stock and enhanced trigger couldn't be happier with it
November 7, 2018
Will not buy again
Ordered PS10 lower and upper separate brand new, there is an excessive amount of play/slop between the upper and lower, sent it back in for repairs, PSA told me it was within specs and to buy a 3rd parties product (accuwedge) to correct their rifle, yeah right and no thank you, they of course won't fix it, exchange or refund.
October 10, 2018
Great gun
Wonderful rifle, use it for hogs and target shooting and have never had any issues with it no matter what ammunition I’ve used however I noticed it prefers heavier bullets. It is very customizable and easy to maintain
