When will you have your "premium M4's in stock?
Rick C on Aug 6, 2018
How does this compare to the PSA 16" FREEDOM RIFLE - 508052 ?
Steve C on May 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This has a cold hammer forged barrel made by FN. This is a machine gun type barrel. Better quality than the freedom line
Will I need front and rear sights for this rifle or just rear?
Alex O on May 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Just a rear sight. The MBUS rear sights are good for these.
How does this compare to Colt 6920?
Fixie2work1 on Feb 18, 2019
BEST ANSWER: i have a 6920 and a PAS and to be honest the finish and fit is actually just as good or better on the PAS especially the finish and CHF barrel which on the 6920 does not have, not to say the 6920 is not a good weapon but i have both and can tell you the PSA IS JUST AS GOOD.
What does full auto bolt carrier profile mean? Is this a semi auto rifle or full auto?
Gary G on May 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It means that the bolt carrier is NOT slightly cut on the bottom as some AR bolts are to reduce the weight. This is able to be used in a full auto gun but this is a semi auto gun. The full auto carrier help make it run slightly smoother.
How long is the handguard?
I would like to install a M lok type handguard on.

What is a good suppressor for my PSA ar15?
Chris P on Apr 14, 2019
How does this model compare to your PSA 16” M4 premium carbine 9024?
Alex S on Feb 20, 2019
Can you install a red dot on this rifle?
Fixie2work1 on Feb 18, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I know an optic of at least 3x can coexist with the front post because that's what I'm running on mine. My suggestion would be to bring the rifle to your LGS and try a few red dot scopes to see how things work out. That's what I did when buying the optic for mine.
Is the front sight removeable?
Jeff F on Jun 14, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Not really. The A2 front sight is also the gas block. If you have the tools and the skills you can remove the A2, but you'll have to install a separate gas block and probably change to a different handguard system.
Does this rifle take a 45mm round?
Dallas E on Dec 6, 2018
Was just wondering (no rush) if and when you were going to have more in stock?
Please and thank you.
EvilBeanz on Aug 6, 2019
Are the handguards double heat shielded or single?
nater on Jun 18, 2019
Do the barrels on your PA-15 16” CHF M4 CARBINE 5.56 NATO PREMIUM CLASSIC rifle with extra thick chrome lining have an FN roll mark? The description is says - "Barrel: A proprietary blend of Hammer forged chrome molly vanadium made by FN that is referred to as "Machine Gun Steel" by virtue of its required use in FN's M249 and M240 weapons."
David D on May 9, 2019
Can the handguard be replaced with a midlength freefloat, or does it have to be carbine length?
tom d on May 4, 2019
Does it come in Left Hand?
Boyd M on Apr 3, 2019

Awesome rifle for the price.
PSA delivered faster than I anticipated to my FFL, and oiled very well which was a pleasant surprise. The rifle is built incredibly well, with only a minor flaw involving the handguard ring for the front sight being slightly out of alignment. After 200+ rounds it fires accurately and consistently with 0 issues. I only reduced a star for the handguard issue as I'll have to adjust it to make it flush with the rifle.

WOW, Very nice
First time I have ever bought a weapon from Palmetto and they DID NOT disappoint. Very impressed with this gun, went thru 150 round on the first day without any problems. I was using the 5.56 55 gr. This gun operated flawless. I could not ask for a better gun. I will buy from these people again.

Great, accurate, high quality AR
Through the years I had a bunch of AR's. Colt's, Bushmasters, DPMS, Armalite and a few others. This PSA is one of my favorites from that bunch. It's very accurate and well constructed. And at the price I paid it was also the best bargain I've come across.

Pleased so far
Flawless function, as accurate as I am. So far I am very happy for the money. Fit and finish are fine. Upper and lower fit together very well. Stock was loose goosey but easy swap with a CTR.

Great barrel
Great barrel in an otherwise basic but solid rifle. I've never had any issues with any of my PSA rifles and but highly recommend the FN barrels when offered.

Very pleased!
I didn't quite know what to expect when this rifle arrived. I was very impressed with its fit and finish, but more importantly it shot quite well. I caught it on sale and when if it comes back on sale I will buy two more. Great bargain.
