Will this work on the KS-47 lower?
Lee Family Arms on Apr 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Just Spoke to Palmetto Via Facebook and they have Said this will now work on the KS-47 Lower. "No it will not. The KS47 lower requires the KS47 upper to run"
It this upper cut out enough to let me use my Psa AR stripped lower that takes AK mags?
Brett E on May 1, 2018
Will this work with the classic Blackhawk lower? Or which is besr for it?
Lance W on Apr 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yep, that's what I have on mine. Works great, have fun shooting it. You'll love it
How easy would it be to convert this to free floating rail? Same as AR15 upper or would the caliber/barrel complicate it?
Trygve V on Apr 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Same as AR. Will use same rails, uses same barrel nut, uses same barrel wrench.
Will this upper work with a 2.23 and 5.56 lower? Same idea as a 300 black out upper to 5.56 lower. Magazine too? What would I need if I bought it?
Noah R on Apr 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes it will work
Recommend heavier hammer spring 7.62x39 Russia ammo has harder primers . 223/5.56 mags will not work . Use C-products ar15 7.62x39magazines I’ve had no issues Eric B
Does this have any mods to deal with steel cases and hard primers?
Sean B on Apr 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: it's possible to pierce brass cased primers as it comes. a standard 556 firing pin cures that on brass.
Will this work with the PSA gen2 PA10 lower?
Eric M on Apr 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: NO - PA-10 is for .308 / 7.62x51 Nato in the AR-10 platform (larger frame). This 7.62x39 upper is for AR-15 sized receiver
Anyone know what the exact diameter of the bore is? .308, .309, .310 for reloading and ammo purchases?
Trygve V on May 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I researched this online and found a post on a forum made by PSA that stated the bore diameter was .3095 The post was from 2016 but I'm assuming the info is still accurate for the current barrels. I'm hoping PSA will post a reply here to verify this.
I tried to fit this on a standard PSA AR 15 lower and does not fit properly. Rear take down pin won’t go in,does not line all the way up have to force it down but still won’t go in. Is there a special lower for this upper?
Actionman2929 on Apr 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have this upper paired to a PSA lower and the fit is flawless. Better fit than a Anderson lower. Make sure to push the upper back towards the buffer tube. If it still won't line up and pin you may have an out of spec lower(highly unlikely). Best way to check is try and pin another upper on that lower and see what happens. If it won't pin then the lower is out of spec. Also make sure the BCG is fully engaged with the barrel extension. If another upper fits fine the then upper is slightly out of spec. Just send it back and Palmetto State Armory will take care of you. Trust me.
Is this avail in left hand option?
Steve M on Apr 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: As of right now, PSA does not offer any left-handed uppers.
Will this work on any mil spec lower other than a PSA lower?
Kiely R on Apr 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, It will work with any brand standard mil spec lower. I built mine with an Anderson lower and it fit perfectly.

jimmy t on May 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Theoretically, it would fit on any AR15 lower

Roger W on May 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes. AR-47 mags...
what is the barrel thread?
Tactical a on Apr 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: 5/8" x 24 for the flash hider.
Will this work with a complete DPMS AR15 lower?
Chad M on May 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes it will. You will need 7.62x39 specific magazines. Also there has been some issues with mil surp ammo in these uppers. Hammer not striking hard enough to ignite primers. I have been using new issue, brass case 7.62x39 and mine has been functioning well !
Is this direct impingement or piston driven?
alvarez1900 on Jun 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Direct Impingement carbine length system. Takes its own BCG and requires AR 7.62x39 mags but will fit standard PSA lower. Very happy with mine.

Will this upper fit on a mutant lower?
James A on Jun 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: yes. Mutant lower and the lower palmetto makes for the upper are almost the same. Also works with just a AR lower if you run the AR-47 mags.
How about PSA List the Lowers that this Upper will work with? Make our shopping FUN not a pain!
Anthony F on May 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The 7.62x39 upper will fit any PSA lower on their website that's not for an AR-10 (.308 caliber). These are mil-spec pieces and thus, fit for any standard lower receiver. Pick one. Pick any (aside from for .308). Pin it together. You're done. Then go have fun!

fal1NH on May 9, 2018

Gordon on May 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The thread pitch on this is the standard 5/8-24. I just installed a muzzle brake and have verified.
would this work on a smith and wesson lower?
william g on May 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Read the warning on the website regarding industry (non)standardization for the AR-10 platform. Personally, I would NOT go there unless I were able to personally witness a rifle which used the PSA upper with the SW lower, just to be sure.
You can slap (almost) any AR15 upper and lower together. This does NOT apply to the AR10.
Will this work on any mil spec lower other than a PSA lower?
Kiely R on Apr 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: they fit our colt fine; closest to spec you're gonna find in a semi.
Does this have the Nitride/Melanite Treated Barrel. ?
Ojas D on Jun 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes it has a dark finish that matches several of my lowers.
Does this upper ship directly to my address?
Hunter1968 on May 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes it will. I bought a upper from here and it came to me. Only the lower with the serial number is considered the gun.
What is the best bet for optics? Let's say 100 yards but not looking to blow my budget. Any particular Red Dot better suited for this upper?
Kieron K on May 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Probably just that SPARC AR would be g2g for you

Palmetto is a great company with quality products that stands behind what they sell
Great upper had no issue shot 120 rounds through my aero lower. Used a palmetto pa10 buffer and tube just because of issues of I heard of on other builds. I would recommend to anybody. Its test fired before you get it. Bought several rifles from palmetto and they took care of 1 issue and had no problems with customer service. Had several friends and family buy from palmetto and had 100% satisfaction

It was alot of trouble to get this to be a fun run!
Its now very fun to shoot! Initially had trouble with feeding and light primer strikes. Getting magazines to run in 7.62x39 can be challenging. Now its meeting my expectations after being returned x2. It shoots cheap ammo accurately and is legal for deer hunting in my state!

Buy this if you have a lot of time, patience and need a new hobby!

Great price and quality for PA47 complete upper w/BCG and CH. Fit perfectly on PSA complete classic lower. Cycled without any problem at the range using C Product Defense 10 round and 28 round magazines.

Works great after 1250 rounds.
This thing works great the only issue so far was a few falures to fire which were do to cheap steel ammo (nice deep primer strikes). I purchased one of these from another company a couple years ago and the Palmetto is far superior. I havent cleaned it yet after 1250 rounds (purposely) and put all kinds of garbage ammo through it. Its filthy but still functions well. Buy it! You wont be disappointed.

Works great!
I put this on an 80% lower I recently completed. Mated to the lower perfectly, nice fit with no gaps.Fired it with both Wolf steel cased ammo and Yugo mil-surp brass case ammo. Using CPD mags in 30 rd, 10 rd and 5 rd. Functioned flawlessly. I'm very pleased. At last an affordable 7.62 x 39 AR15 that works first time everytime.
