ok so far im not as impressed as i hoped id be
pro: ordered the upper and lower for this rifle separately on the friday of the hurricane in the afternoon not sure when the upper shipped but the lower shipped the same day


they both arrived in wisconsin the following wednesday


con: the upper fits kinda loose on the lower not the worst ive seen but not the best either i have kind of a trick for that though

con: some minor scratches on the barrel and the lower

didnt get the blem discount but could have possibly qualified as a blem in my opinion

con: would prefer caliber and twist info stamped on the barrel instead of just laser etched

con: wish the finish on the upper and lower matched the rail a little better the upper and lower are pretty flat while the rail is closer to a semi gloss id say

pro: like the angle cut bcg nice finish on it melonited or qpq i think

pro: good trigger fire selector clicks on and off nice

con: wish there was some instructions on the adjustable gas block

i had to look it up online

pro: nice grip with interchangeable backstraps ill leave the one on there that it came with

aint shot it yet hope it shoots good for the problems i have with it so far

still waiting for scope sights mags and some rail stuff

if it shoots good ill give it 4 stars

btw: lightweight means the rail not the rifle

its 9.8 pounds on my scale with no mag no optic and nothing fun or fancy on the rail yet

so far its just not quite as nice as my psa 16 inch midlength gas heavy barrel carbine upper was when it arrived when i bought it a few years back that one was flawless
looks cool enough i guess
see how the finishes on the rail/upper/lower kinda sorta dont match though
nice packaging
nice boxes

Excellent Value
Seems to shoot just as well as my DPMS 308 but at half the price and better features. Love the stock, adjustable gas block, m-lok handguard, threaded barrel, etc.. 6.5 creedmoor with 1:8 twist is great for 120 to 140 grain bullets. Shoots 1 MOA right out of the box, i'm sure with some load development this can be a sub MOA rifle.

Another outstanding rifle from PSA.
This 6.5CM is an outstanding value.
I will let the pictures do most the talking... all groups at 100yds., benched scoped, and bagged front and rear.
All groups are 10rds , rapid fire... expect the 120gr Fed. AE ,that is 8rds ( I used the rest in other testing.
If ANYONE can show me another manufacturer that sell a 6.5CM at this price point, that shoots this good... please tell me ! ;)

The best part is the groups from the "cheap" 6.5CM ammo... Horn. AG has been as cheap as $110 / 200rds.

These groups were from the the first firing of this specific PSA.
I am confident the groups will improve as the barrel "breaks in".
It also comes with the "Vltor" length buffer tube, ( slightly longer ) which allows use of standard AR15 carbine buffers. A nice bonus.
Seriously, if you want a good shooting 6.5CM , with out breaking your piggy bank open... this rifle will do it.

BTW... I can admit to some of those fliers as being my fault.. I gotta quit trying to re adjust / muscle the rifle on the bags.
