BEST ANSWER: Well it works just fine on my Tennessee Arms Co 308 polymer lower,which is a Gen 1 DPMS pattern.

Will this work with an aero precision lower?
Brandon B on Jun 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: "No", it will not...I tried to pair a PA-10 upper to an Aero M5 lower...will "not" pair up correctly...besides, the PA-10/65 lower will make a much better visual/mechanical match, at a significantly lower price (my advise)'c

How is the gas block adjusted?
Ron L on Apr 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: There is a small Allan screw face of the gas block which you can see and access from the end of the M-loc rail. Turn the screw counterclockwise to increase gas to the action or clockwise to decrease.

Will this upper fit the Aero Precision AR10 lower?
J. J on Jun 9, 2018
Will the 6.5 Creedmoor upper fit a Rock River AR-15 Lower?
92nRed R on Jul 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, the 6.5 creedmoor is used on the AR10 style lower, so an AR15 lower will not work regardless of manufacturer.
Will this work on a Smith and Wesson AR10 lower?
BearKiller on Aug 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have not tried to fit on a S&W AR10 Lower. But it is a mil spec upper. I have my AR 65 on a PA AR 10 lower. It works perfectly. It should work fine as long as your S&W lower is to mil spec.
Does the upper have any MOA built in?
STEVEN K on Aug 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No it is just flat straight line picitinny ra

Will it fit a LWRCI REPR lower?
Rod B on Aug 1, 2018

Does this have 5r rifling?
pat k on Jun 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No problem anytime. Love shooting long range and helping people learn about it .
I have a core 15 223, 556 lower will it work with that?
nick s on Jun 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No. This is for an AR-10 lower.
Is this an AR-15 lower compatible?
Ralph R on Jun 5, 2018
Is the gas block pre-adjusted at factory or does it need to be adjusted after purchase? If needs adjustment what is the procedure to adjust it. Mine seems as if it has been thread locked into position.

Very pleased
Very pleased with this upper! I have put together several ar15 type rifles using psa parts! I wanted an ar10 type rifle and a rifle in 6.5 cm, so this caliber and a psa sale intrigued me enough to make a purchase. If you follow their intructions and use a psa pa10 or pa65 lower, you will be good to go! Shoots great with hornady factory ammo! Match and precision hunter! Good luck on your purchase.

bad chamber
After thorough cleaning, I fired five 3 shoot series, running a patch thru the bore after each series. I observed that the brass had a distinct 3/16 scar about 5/8 inch from the head. Inspection of the chamber revealed a rough area that protruded into the case on firing. I was able to smooth the rough area.

I've purchased many Palmetto products and this is the only one that was not up to standard.

So good I can’t get my hands on it
Couldn’t be more pleased. Well, actually I could. My wife likes it so much I don’t get to shoot it as often as I’d like. Gonna have to build another I guess. Life could be worse.

I called and asked PSA employees as to the total weight of the 6.5 Creed on a lower and they said less than 8 lbs. Received my upper today and total weight with lower is 9.43 LBS. No scope, no mag...just upper and lower mounted.

Very nice very accurate.

Good accuracy but HEAVY
Sub moa accuracy with handloads, about 1 moa with Remington hunting ammo. Pretty darn accurate for a gas operated rifle. Sounds like a couple of the reviewers below didn’t bother adjusting their gas and got damaged brass. Mine was slinging brass into the next county until I tuned it. Now it lays the brass at 3 o’clock in a nice, neat pile. The only downside (for me) to this rifle is the weight, but the heavy barrel helps accuracy, so it’s a fair trade...can’t have it all!

Exceeded my expectations
Good Quality fit and finish, adjustable gas block allows for fine tuning with different ammo. Shooting 1 MOA or better at 100 yards with hunting ammo while breaking in the barrel. There was no FMJ ammo available locally. I can only expect better results as time goes on and the use of better ammo. I have been hunting with 308 150 grain with great success, but this year I will be hunting with this upper and 140 to 143 grain SP and see how it performs.

6.5 creedmoor
Was impressed with the beefyness and quality of this rifle. Also impressed with the lower that I purchased to go with this upper. Only complaint I have on the complete rifle is the trigger. While the trigger was very smooth it broke right over 4lb but for a factory trigger it's far better that other factory AR triggers I've changed out in the past. Now for the most important part ACCURACY. I have only shot two types factory ammo(140gr) in it so far but with the trigger I'm able to achieve less that 1 inch groups at 100yrds. So yes I would recommend this rifle.

Pretty, functional, and super accurate
This is a good looking upper. I like the stainless steel barrel. There are M-Loc slots on the sides and bottom, which I've used to attach a bipod mount with. The accuracy is phenomenal. I have quarter-sized groups at 100-yards. I use Hornady 143 gr ELD-X Precision Hunter ammunition. I clocked about 50 fps less with this 20-inch barrel than what the manufacturer advertises from their 24-inch barrel. I appreciate the extra ejector pin which consistently throws the heavy spent brass.
Hornady 143 gr ELD-X Precision Hunter from this 20" barrel, about 50 fps less than 24-inch barrel.
I made a pretty gun with this barrel.
