    I have been bitten by the 300 Blackout pistol bug. PSA has free shipping on several of the pistol uppers. I weakened and now have an upper coming. I ordered the Magpul MBus sight set to go along with it. Got a good deal on the sight set with the discount. Email says the order is in "processing" but the website now says out of stock.

    I want to add a red dot at a latter date and may even look into going with a tax stamp for a SBR.

    The upper: 8.5" barrel

    Just based upon my own experience with Palmetto, I think you will be happy. I've built a few 5.56 using their components and have been very happy. Currently I have two. Both will shoot MOA with optical sights. Reliability has been 100%.

    I bought a pistol lower from them a while back and it appears to be of very good quality.

    I built a pistol kit from psa for a friend. Parts were good quality and finished well but the chamber was a bit rough. Didn't affect function and shoots great.

    I have an upper from them and I love it.
    My only gripe with PSA is when buying a "limited run" lower. I bought one and it took 2 months longer to ship it than they specified.
    The upper however, was at my door in 4 days

    Several things from them. Their enhanced triggers on their completed lowers are pretty damn good.

    I've been waiting for them to get back in stock on 6.5 Grendel rifle uppers but they have been unavailable for a while except for the one with a Strike Eagle. Don't need the scope. I guess I could get it and sell the scope.

    I almost bought the Mbus set just because they were only $50 -- I don't even need any - but figured maybe someday I would buy something that they would work with.

    I kinda wanted the 10.5 inch barrel. I think they were out of stock. This upper had free shipping, free is good.

    They had a pistol upper in stock yesterday when I looked. Don't recall the size.

    I bought a pistol lower from PSI, followed a week or so later by an upper. I couldn't be more pleased.

    Well, crap. Two emails from PSA this morning. Shipment is in 3 boxes (WTF??) and the ammo arrives tomorrow and the rest is to show up on Thursday. Sigh.

    Is that about two weeks from order to delivery?

    Just wondering as I ordered an upper last week.

    Looks like a good 2 weeks, maybe 2 and a half.

    I ordered a rifle from them last Wednesday. The transaction went through and the payment was processed. But it still shows as “processing” as of today (Monday evening). The website now shows the rifle as out of stock.

    Over a year ago I bought a Space Force lower to eventually go on a 10.5 PSA pistol build. Shortly after I bought the kit, they bumped prices up after one of the shootings and I think they're still up today.

    Everything went together ok, but in hindsight I would've went with an Aero lower. The fit and finish is just better and I like the built-in set screw. My PSA lower and upper doesn't have a great fit, the lower was a bit scratched up when I got it, and the inside of the upper receiver was very tight with the Raptor CH I installed... basically had to wear a track in the upper before it could easily be pulled back BUT F&F aside, it's very fun to shoot. The enhanced trigger group it came with pulled in the 8 to 10 lb range, and I put in a ALG ACT I had laying around instead.

    I put about 600 rounds through mine, mostly steel, and haven't touched it in awhile. Super fun to shoot and handy as hell though. Great truck gun.
