Is the bolt carrier group that this 6.5 creedmore upper comes with any different then the one that comes with your 308 upper?
ryan c on Apr 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Unless PSA has changed something YES. I bought a PA65 upper in December. I just confirmed it has a single extractor and a high pressure/ small diameter firing pin bolt. I have built several LR 308 type packages using their previous 308 bolts carriers. They have never varied from the original DPMS clone. The description and images for this new bolt show both dual ejectors and High pressure/ small diameter firing pin bolt.
What is the difference between this and your seemingly similar item ending in 593?
Jeremy G on Apr 23, 2018
Can PSA install a longer M-Lock rail at time of purchase? One longer then 15"?
Johnny on Apr 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: That would make it difficult to adjust the (adjustable) gas block in the field, I would think.
Palmetto, are you going to make a 24" barrel in 6.5 Creedmoor? I'll buy one today with an upper and lower.

BEST ANSWER: A 24" 6.5 creedmoor AR barrel would be AWSOME!
Is your gen 2 6.5 Creedmoor upper compatible with a dpms gen 2 lower?
Norman G on Apr 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It's compatible with a DPMS Gen 1 lower though. Roughly 1/8" needs to be shaved off the top of the lower where the buffer tube screws in to the lower. The bolt catch latch used on most DPMS style lowers needs to be shaved a little as well on the surface that would otherwise be blocked by the upper receiver.
Will this set up work with a SR 25 lower?
ken m on Apr 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Unlikely... there is no milspec for .308AR's... so your best bet, would to be buying a PSA lower.
Was watching the YouTube video that is found on this page and he unboxes it and in the box there is a PMAG 20 and a lock. Is this still the case?
Usmon S on Aug 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I believe those items come with the purchase of the full rifle, which is a different product code or SKU than the upper. They just ship the upper and lower in separate boxes and include the mag and lock when the full rifle is ordered.
Is the gas block pre adjusted at the factory or does it need to be adjusted after purchase?
Newt57 on Aug 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Needs to be adjusted, load one round in chamber insert empty mag, the bolt should lock back when you fire. Mine was open all the way, I screwed it all the way in, then opened one turn at a time until the bolt locked back.
Is the Gas Block adjustable?
huy t on Jun 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: 6.5 yes, 308 no.
Will this upper fit an Aero ME51 308 lower?
Greg Z on May 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It should. You may (likely) will need to shave ~1/8" off the top of the lower where the buffer tube screws into the lower.
So just to clarify the description as long as it's a gen1-2 pa10 this upper will fit properly?
B S on May 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Fit good, one if my favorite AR’s.

6.5 Creedmoor
This is a nice rifle fit and finish. Very accurate. This is a heavy rifle with scope and rings added.

PSA’s PA-10 6.5 Creedmoor is a shooter.
PSA is in the mix with this rifle. Adjust the gas block correctly and this thing will perform. Less than 50 rounds fired and have already seen some 1/2 MOA groups with handloads. Should expect around 3/4 MOA consistently from this rifle if you do your part.
Well balanced handling rifle.  Plenty accurate especially for the price.

Haven't gotten to put it all together yet, but its definitely a nice looking gun, going to make an amazing build.

Very accurate.
I bought this one to put on my Gen 2 lower, which currently housed my Gen 2 .308 upper. Liked it so much I wanted a PA-65 lower. But that item has been (out of stock) for several weeks. Tired of waiting I bought another Gen 2 lower MOE/w EPT. (4th of July special) last week. Free shipping and coupon. Just couldn't pass up the deal. Note. Had to use extra high rings on both uppers for scopes to clear the top rail. Put 150 rounds through it last weekend and very satisfied, with the accuracy. It is a heavy SOB.

Great Looking Upper 6.5 Creedmoor
Charge Handle was a poor fit, was too loose and will fall below bolt and hit rear stock when bolt moves toward the stock, hangs on upper receiver when bolt moves forward.

PA 6.5 creedmoor Awesome
Awesome right out of the box. 1-inch group at 100 yard and haven't even started tweaking ammo or the scope. I know when I use a bench rest or bipod and match ammo this thing should dial in perfect. Love it so far.

Good, but not great!
Pros: Great price, very accurate considering the price (sub-moa), adjustable gas block (upper is way over gassed without it), good fit and finish. Cons: barrel profile at the muzzle (no shoulder to clock a brake/suppressor adapter, I'm surprised the crush washer even compressed with the stock flash suppressor!).

High quality, latest technology
I an very impressed with the total quality of all the components. The bcg is labeled with a double ejector bolt. The hand guard is the best on the market. The barrel I “heard” has top notch quality control. The chamber has tight tolerances for the discriminating educated enthusiasts. Same goes for my 308 upper!
Muzzle braked baby!
