What is the barrel break-in procedure you are recommending?
CastleB on Aug 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I shot one round then cleaned for 15 rounds. then shot five rounds and cleaned . Did that twice. Barrel comes clean with a few patches now, and I can shoot 3/4 ''groops at 200 yds
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)...jo'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 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.
what mags work best?
bob_gunner on May 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Any LR/SR 308 mags.
Will it fit a LWRCI REPR lower?
Rod B on Aug 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Rod I don’t know. I’m not formiliar with LWRC lowers. I’m using PMAG 10 308 win magazine for the LR/SR25 platform if that will help.
Is this an AR-15 lower compatible?
Ralph R on Jun 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No. Must be used on the AR10 platform.
I'm required to build my own lower as per laws not allowing complete lower shipped so do you guys make a parts kit for how you build the lower and what type of buffer and spring is required for the 6. 5 Creedmoor Gen 2? Any build related information would be greatly appreciated. Please advise?
Clint on Sep 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I m in the same boat, in a state not allowing a completed lower. I just finished my PSA Gen 2 ar 10 lower. Get the stripped lower and then order PSA's ar 10 lower build kit. It comes with the Heavy recoil spring and buffer
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.
Newt57 on Aug 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: there is likely a set screw holding the gas adjusting screw from turning. Have you checked/loosen that set screw?
Will this upper work with Tennessee arms polymer lower?
Chris I on Jul 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, Tenn arms recommends PSA for their AR10 lowers.
Will this upper fit the Aero Precision AR10 lower?
J. J on Jun 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No! The charging handle binds on it.
PSA will you make a few uppers exactly like this one but with your 7mm-08 barrel?
Please do!

Will the 6.5 creedmoor upper go on an AR10 or AR 15 lower?
Chief 501 on Nov 21, 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 fit a smith and wesson ar10 lower?
Tim C on Jan 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: There is no direct answer to that unless someone has tried it and will answer for you. As you know ar10’s are not mil spec, there are 2 different uppers and lowers as made by armalite, ( ( the difference being the angle at the rear of the upper to lower, one is rounded, the other is 45’d ), then there is what is called the high rail and low rail version which refers to the height of the rail on the upper and the corresponding hand guard. All I can say is it is possible. It is best however to just go ahead and match the PSA upper to their lower, especially with the price they offer a complete PA65 lower ! You can get one with milspec trigger group or one with 2 stage trigger.
Will this 6.5 upper work with a PX10 308 lower?
Manuel L on Jan 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No, they are completely different formats. The barrel extension and bolt are also different. There is no interchangeability between LR308 and PX10 other then Magazines and most of the Lower parts kit.
Will this fit on a an Anderson multical lower?
Mr Popo on Nov 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It will only fit a AR 10 platform lower and not one like armalite or diamondback not familiar with Anderson AR 10 lowers it will fit PSA 's an DPMS types
Having a real hard time locating parts for this build I wish Palmetto would step their game up and provide more parts! Specifically parts kit?
Clint on Sep 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: What parts
Evening Gentleman, Do you think this would work with a Diamond Back DB10 lower?
John F on Jan 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER: If it’s a DPMS compatible lower it will fit
Will this work on Rock River 308 lower ?
Charles B on Jan 2, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I would recommend you to a palmetto pa10 most at 10 are not interchangeable
Will it work on a sig 716 lower?
James S on Oct 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Unlikely - remember, this is not AR-15 stuff, so there is no milspec. Nearly all of this stuff is proprietary. I tried my upper on an Aero Precision lower and it never would have fit, even if I tried, the pin holes would not have lined up. I recommend pairing the PSA upper with a PSA lower, and save yourself a lot of aggravation. The text of the PSA info page says, "These uppers are designed tow work with the PA-10 platform and as such will function with existing Gen1 & Gen2 PA-10 lower receivers. In order for a better cosmetic appeal, we recommend using all 6.5 Creedmoor uppers with Gan2 PA-10 Lowers or PA-65 Lowers." There's a reason they wrote that. You should take their advice. I certainly will.
Will this upper fit an M&P10 lower?
Gunny on Dec 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It should bolt right up to any AR-10 lower receiver.
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
Does this upper come with a magazine?
Jonathan G on Jun 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, only complete rifles come with magazines.
Will this work with a 80% arms .308 lower receiver that says DPMS compatible?
M F on Jun 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Actually, PSA and DPMS use the DPMS pattern. Armalite is the other pattern.
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 .

Fantastic upper!!!
I bought this 6.5 upper and a PSA 10 lower. PSA shipped very quickly and I got to the range today to break it in. No FTF or FTE issues at all with a box of factory loads. Now to begin load development.

I've bought several PSA AR15 uppers and lowers previously and all have been great.
December 26, 2018
First time PSA customer
This is the first time I have ever bought any thing from PSA and I'm glad that I did. I've always heard or read that PSA was junk, but nothing could be further from the truth. I also purchased two complete lowers from PSA and they are quality. I will get another upper down the road but as for now, my 6.5 Creedmoor project is complete and ready to head for the hills. Just waiting for a new scope. Thanks PSA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Very Impressed
Purchased my PA-65 upper to go with my PA-65 lower. Looks & functions great! Took a whitetail buck with it this year. He made it about 50 yards and it was over! Really impressed with the 6.5 Creedmoor round & even more impressed with my rifle setup!

Bought it in Oct finally broke it in today. Got the mod power w/PSA n’ boron trigger group. Really well made. Got it on paper at 50 and zeroed at 100. Functioned flawlessly, really nice trigger. Unbelievable accuracy for under $800! Was sub minute at 100 yds. You can’t beat this. Put 60 Rds thru it. 20 Hornady 147 gr ELD match, 20 129 gr interlock and 20 Winchstr 125 gr open tip range. The cheap Winchstr shot best. Looking fwd to trying 300 yds +.
