BEST ANSWER: No. Not if you are referencing “heavy barrel” like one you would find on a Rem 700 SPS heavy barrel varmint or Ruger 10/22 heavy barrel 22, target style etc. It a solid AR 15 and shoots very well, accurately and reliably. A solid rifle in my opinion. I hope that helps.

Great rifle for a great price.
Great rifle for a very, very great price! Also, I didn't realize this rifle had the EPT trigger. That was a great surprise to feel how smooth the trigger pull was when I tried it out prior to firing. Another thing I love about this rifle that the buffer and spring don't seem to vibrate as loudly as other AR's and the M16A4 I was issued in the Marine Corps. All around solid built AR. I will definitely do business with PSA again. Only thing I can see to improve on is shipping.
May 24, 2020
Thanks PSA!
Just put 100 rounds of Tulammo through this rifle today. It ate through the cheap stuff like a champ. The feel of the firearm is great. Very happy with my purchase. And the price point tips the scale on this one. Do yourself a favor and save $200 on a better rifle than the competitors. I will be buying from PSA again shortly. I can only support PSA's mission as well. KAG!

Dam! this thing looks great. you cant beat price and quality combination anywhere. this people from PSA deserve a medal the way the do this. you are not going to war, this is a sport and enjoyable rifle to go hunting or range and why spend thousands of dollar in other ones to do same thing. you can trust this company and if you are trying to decide . just be like me. my friends paid doble than me for a name bran one and mine looks now nicer and got same range accuracy results. thanks PSA will buy from you soon !!

Best rifle ever and best quality.
This rifle is one of the best rifles that I’ve ever owned. The quality is great, there were no lose parts and the bc was properly done.
PSA is the way to go if your looking for a high quality rifle at an affordable price. You don't need to buy $1000 rifles to get the best results because this does the job. Don’t hesitate on this one!

Can't wait to hit the range.
Just arrived today. 10 days from order placement to rifle in hand. Fit, finish and feel all top notch. Came with a magpul pmag instead of the aluminum mag advertised, so that's a win. Will update to five stars once I get some range time in

PSA all the way
I have several PSA AR's and kick the shit out of them. They always perform stellar! Take my Colt's and DPMS's.
November 17, 2019
I think you will like this company, pretty nice AR I got from them.
It’s exactly what I expected, no issues as it came to my FFL and they called me once they recieved it. I went in, did my paperwork, checked over the rifle. Took it home and broke it down to check it over in more detail. Probably the only thing that one could call a suprise, is how nice the trigger is. Better then I thought it would be. Thank You, PSA

Love every bit it it.
Bought mine for my birthday in April of last year. Like a few I was a little resistant to by an AR15 but I'm having alot of fun with it.

Once in a lifetime malfunction, but would still buy again!
Great look, great feel, only issue (most likely just a fluke), first time I shot I only got 4 rounds out before a major malfunction. One of the gas rings came apart/shredded inside the bolt causing the bolt to seize up inside the carrier. It was only a $1.99 fix and the guy who fixed it said he has never seen this happen before (he has been working on rifles for many years). Anyway, that is why I called it a “fluke”. I would still recommend this rifle and would buy it again.
