This just goes to show you that you really do not need to buy a crappy off the shelf commercial spec rifle to save some money. Right now Palmetto State Armory has a weekend deal on their 16″ Mid Length CHF (Cold Hammer Forged) Rifle Kit. The CHF barrel is made for them by FN, not some no name manufacturer. The kit comes complete with a fully assembled Upper, BCG, Charging Handle, Lower Parts Kit, Receiver Extension Kit and Stock. All you need to do is supply the Stripped Lower which can be found for as little as $60 on PSA’s website while you’re buying this Rifle Kit for just $499.99. You do the math. That is a complete, high quality, rifle without the major brand name for just $560. Sign me up please!! For those wondering, I have personally purchased and still own tons of PSA parts, complete uppers, lowers, etc. They really are Good To Go! Just don’t expect your stuff to ship right away. They are notoriously slow.
Everything you need to turn your stripped lower into a rifle for one low introductory price. Kit includes a PSA 16″ Hammer-Forged, Chrome-Lined, mid-length upper, BCG, charging handle and our Classic Lower Build Kit.
Lower Build Kit: Includes our M4-style stock, A2 Pistol grip, Palmetto State Armory Classic Lower Parts Kit with single-stage combat trigger, Mil-Spec size buffer tube, castle nut, end plate, carbine spring, and PSA Standard buffer.
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 use in FN’s M249 and M240 weapons. The hammer forging process work hardens the steel, making it more durable. In addition, the chrome process for the bore allows for a lining almost twice as thick as a standard M16 for enhanced durability. Chambered in 5.56 NATO, with a 1/7 twist, M4 barrel extension, and a mid-length gas system. The A2 style profile barrel is Mil-spec phosphate coated. Barrel is High Pressure tested, and Magnetic Particle inspected, to ensure quality and dependability, and is finished off with an F-marked front sight post with sling swivel, standard hand guards and an A2 flash hider.
Upper: Forged 7075-T6 A3 AR upper is made to MIL-SPECS and hard coat anodized black for durability. Featuring machined T marks, and a mil-spec finish. These uppers are made for us right here in the USA by a mil-spec manufacturer.
Bolt: Bolt is made of Shot-peened Mil-spec Carpenter 158 steel. Gas key is secured with grade 8 fasteners and staked per mil-spec. Bolt carrier is parkerized outside, chrome lined inside.
Each upper is assembled to order with care, and test fired.
