Great deal. I had same set up

Great deal. I had same set up and was very impressed by both the lower and the upper. Very tight fit and the rifle is very light. Good beginner rifle to shoot you run of the mill ammo.

FIY. Palmetto will ship you upper with signature confirmation. If you are not home then your upper will go back to PSA. I would recommend shipping to your local FFL and see if they will accept it without charge. A great way to establish and/or grow your relationship with your FFL.

PSA will build and ship it.

PSA will build and ship it. It will depend on the demand and amount of parts they have. The last process in ordering with them you will read a disclaimer which will state that it can up to 15 business days to ship. Be patient it's well worth it.

Just sign up,,and when you get the email saying they are in stock, be ready to order. Don't wait! They sell out by noon or so on days the become available. I got mine last week.

Are you able to complete the transaction on Palmetto's website? When I got mine, I waited 3 1/2 weeks. I believe they sell the uppers, then put those orders in production, ergo the long delay. If you can complete the transaction you will be getting it, just not soon.

As soon as you get the email notification you have to order it, or else you're just gonna have another out of stock situation for a few days. If you really want one of these, check your email early and often.

just got my upper in today.

just got my upper in today. it actually looks pretty good. outside finish is perfect with no scratches and the inside is blotchy. the seam on the handguard is kinda rough. everything seems good. i was concerned after reading about some of the poorer quality ones on some forums. maybe i got lucky or maybe they were unlucky. took 1 month from placing the order to actually getting it but for 315 shipped im happy.

if anyone has questions reply to this and ill try to answer them.

I bought mine and a few weeks later had it at my door. Maybe it took a month... Who cares?

Have not shot it yet, but it looks great, great fit and finish, and clears all function tests!

Please people, there are

Please people, there are plenty of other sites to buy from that have awesome customer service, just as good deals, and actually ship your item. Don't support crap as sites anymore. PSA, along with DOA arms, are the two worst sites available.

Trying calling PSA or writing a semi bad review. Then you will see what I mean.

P.S.- DOA arms sells blems as new and at new prices. BEWARE!! Bobby Horne will rip you off.

Well I got it on the 21st indeed. Could not be happier with the fit and finish!! Well worth the price! Not a single scratch, It does not even look like it was fired. Nice black smooth even finish everywhere with no discoloration. The inside of the barell looks great, clean, and smooth. Clean, black, smooth finish on the bcg too. Fits nice and snug with my NFA lw15 lower. It actually looks very good and I would be proud to show it to other shooters. Well worth the wait. I just need to go shoot it now.

I've got the NFA completed

I've got the NFA completed lower under a PSA premium upper and it couldn't be any better from a fit, look and performance standpoint. I bought a lower from Joebob around Thanksgiving for $99 shipped and two other PSA blem (don't look it) stripped lowers around the same time for $49 each. Doesn't hurt to have extras at that price. As well, the NFA lower has a lifetime, no questions asked warranty....and it's very light compared to a billet or forged lower. People can choose what they want but don't go knocking a lower because you don't like polymer lowers for yourself. They do work, are quite durable, fit better than metallic lowers and are lighter weight. PSA is ALWAYS slow on shipping their uppers. This is a known reality. I hope they work for you guys.

Somebody should post a deal

Somebody should post a deal like this that's just a step up with the Anderson Forged Lower, etc. Thats what I want and am trying to figure out the best deal. I'm sure these polymer receivers are fine, I'm not knocking them, I just want to get something a little more proven, closer to mil-spec. Any advise is appreciated, cheers!

Of course, everything is dependent on the PSA upper, so this may be OOS when you first read it, but they come back with great regularity.

Enjoy getting your LOWER sent

Enjoy getting your LOWER sent by a professional company. Then enjoy waiting FOR FREAKING EVER, as this monkeyfest of a company takes for ever to send this upper to you.. Things been on sale now 3 times since i have ordered this and they still have not sent it. One and only purchase from these chuckles. BBB forms have been filled out. and there is a stack of them from what i have researched. HIRE MORE SHIPPERS GENIUSES.

Could not have said it better

Could not have said it better myself. Every time I see this upper back in stock I ask myself how can that be if I still have not received mine. Ordered on Jan 27 with 3 imi defense mags. The mags came super quick but no upper in the box. Psa order status says order complete and shipped on both items.
Joe Bob's on the other hand, lower got here in 3 days!

It also took 4 hours on the phone calling them. On the phone so long the phone system dropped the call 3 times. when got Paul H. on the phone I guess i caught him from his long mid day nap. I guess i was inconveniencing him some what from his piss poor attitude. Customer service is not in his companies vocabulary. I think they cut that chapter out of the employee manual. Right before they cut out then how to ship in a timely manner chapter as well.

I bought mine on Jan 14,

I bought mine on Jan 14, received Feb 12...Pretty much a month. Once I received my upper assembly, everything looks ok except the finish on the upper. I sh!t you not, it looks goldish/brownish/bronze. I expected a little off color, reviews have said anything from light black to a almost gray color. I would be happy with either of those. I posted pix on AR15.com under a 12 plus page of people complaining out the ptac upper. Have contacted PSA, but no answer yet, I guess do to the storms. The barrel rifiling looks good though, as does the staking on the BCG, but the gold spray paint finish look on the upper receiver is just horrible.

This is a good way to put

This is a good way to put together a cheap, more than likely reliable rifle.

You could also spend another 50.00-75.00 and get a full metal lower. The spikes full lowers are everywhere right now.

Either way. 400.00 or 450.00 is a great price. lol

Something I'd start my kiddo out with or recommend to a beginner.
