I ordered this kit and it didn’t come with the rear site? I tried emailing you guys but never got a response please reply
Chad L on Dec 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: They do come with the rear Magpul Mbus sight. It says so right in thr description.
Is this a carbine length or mid length gas system? The listing , and description contradict one another.
Jank on Sep 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This is a carbine length gas system as stated and pictured.I didnt see any contradiction in the description.
All you would need to complete the rifle is the lower?
Steven on Aug 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, a stripped lower, everything else is provided.
Can this be assembled for someone left handed?
Derek on Dec 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I am a left-handed shooter and have had no problems shooting a "right-handed" AR-15. To build a true "left-handed" AR-15 would require special upper and lower receivers and associated parts. I know one company offers the upper receiver and BCG, but AFAIK no one offers a left-handed lower and parts.
The only adaption a lefthander needs to do when shooting an AR-15 is to button-up your shirt completed to prevent that one hot case from going down your shirt! The "Hot Brass Dance" is not fun!
Is that the MOE M-LOK hand guard with this kit?
Eric R on Sep 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes sir it is!
Is a magazine included with this kit?
Jason K on Mar 27, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No, However Cabela’s has Magpul magazines to match.
No FFL needed for this kit, correct?
Dominic C on Sep 29, 2019
BEST ANSWER: No, it’s doesn’t include a receiver; which is the only part that would require an FFL.
In the product description it states that the upper comes with the rear flip up sight. Iv seen another question and answer saying that’s not true. So does this upper come with the MBUS rear sight?
Nick.C on Sep 21, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it does come with the rear sight!
What tool are needed to complete this build? Is there anything special I will need?
Wayne on Dec 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You will need a stripped lower receiver, a set of pin punches, roll pin punch set, a spanner for the castle nut, a center punch for peening the castle nut in place, and a small mallet (brass preferably). You might want some fine sandpaper and files if you need to do any fitting to get the parts to fit properly.
What would I need to purchase to upgrade the hand guard to a guntec 15 inch hand guard?
061686 0 on Feb 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: A standard carbine has a 9" hand gaurd ,mid length 11",you probably be better with a full length free float upper kit
What is the trigger tension on this?
Matt on Dec 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It's going to be 6-7 pounds
What is the difference between the Melonite and the Nitride Barrel Finish?
jimmy s on Oct 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: What is the trigger tension on this?
Is the barrel in this kit actually 16” ? Or is it less and the flash hider added on makes it a full 16” ? I’m just trying to decide if I should get the mid length kit or the carbine length kit. Thanks

A great rifle at a great price
I was a little on the fence about these guns at this price, but after reading so many great reviews, I bought one. I bought a striped lower locally and had this sent to my house. A first time build, so I paused and played a video during assembly. No problems, it shoots great. Right now I have 225 rounds through it with zero malfunctions. I would definitely recommend PSA and I will be purchasing here again.

Room to grow, Great deal.
This rifle kit is a great way to start with a good grade rifle. I would however suggest to the PSA Company to begin offering different options to expand your selection of barrels such as 1 in 8, 1 in 9" twist and chrome lined, ect ect.

Fantastic product and Company
These are outstanding kits, not only fit and finish but they function outstanding. I honestly can't say enough good about them.

I'm happy.
Every component was shinny, clean, and new. It came with an extra takedown spring and detent pin (just in case you lose it). Took it to the range, discovered the front sight was off. Palmetto was happy to take it back for adjustments. Received it back in three weeks. I'm giving it 5 stars, because the finial finished product is exactly what I wanted.
Consistently hits steel targets over 200 yards with the iron sight (If I could see further, maybe more), Wolf steel case ammo (the cheapest ammo), 0 clicks. Functioned flawless, hot or cold. Looks very nice. Sturdy. The cheapest ammo, accurately, as far as I can see. That's 5 stars.
I have confidence in this company. I've ordered ammo from PSA several times. I'm probably going to be purchasing an additional AR style kit.

Great quality and price! I will buy from PSA again for my M-16A4 clone build!
Ordered on 12/14/18, received 12/21/18. Completed assembly in 35-40 minutes with no problems whatsoever. The fit between the PSA upper and Anderson lower is smooth and tight, almost like a paired set.
Completed the 500 round break in period shooting 45, 55, 62, 69 and 75 grn rounds in both brass and steel cases with ZERO problems. Groups averaging 1.40 inches @ 100 m.
Greatly appreciated the seperate bagging of the various lower assemblies, made assembly much easier as you don't spend an hour trying to find the correct pins, detents and springs for each step. PSA even included an extra detent and spring for the pivot/takedown pins in case of accidental launches.
This is my second PSA rifle build and both kits have exceeded all expectations. Fit, finish, function and accuracy equals, if not exceeds, those of "name brand" rifles costing at least twice as much. Very satisfied and will recommend PSA products to all.

PS: Only one deviation from the advertised parts: I received the Nitrided Bolt Carrier Group instead of the USGI Parkerized BCG. No problem as I was thinking of ordering a Nitrided BCG anyway. So far, no wear noticed even under magnification. Thanks PSA!
