Shot 50rds through it

Shot 50rds through it yesterday. Very impressed on the accuracy. The free floating handle is really nice and light. However, the extra rail attachments that you screw on is made out of plastic. Really cheap. Broke one and cracked one. Overall. The still very happy with this deal. Will buy another for my 2nd build.

Yes. Do your own research on

Yes. Do your own research on melonite vs chrome lined barrel and you will find Melonite is better than chrome lined... plus a 1:7 twist. The MI rail is decent - slim, lighter weight. Throw in the BCG and charging handle and you're not going to find a better deal anywhere. For $415 bucks shipped to my door I couldn't be happier.

Building an AR for less than

Building an AR for less than $500, I like it. I know Palmetto has issues with order speed, but they have the deals. If you can put up with a little wait time it's usually worth it.

I bought this upper combo

I bought this upper combo back when they had it on black Friday. It's a very nice budget setup. I would buy again if I needed one. With their blem lower and part kit combo I was able to build a rifle for 540 + tax (I live in SC) but I saved on the transfer fee on the lower as I picked up in store.

Palmetto State Armory is the

Palmetto State Armory is the worst company to buy from. I ordered a lower from a different company on the same day as I ordered the parts kit from Palmetto, I have received the lower and my parts kit is still processing. Small order that cant get out the door in 5 days. I will never order from Palmetto State Armory again. Called Palmetto for info on when it would ship but they did not seem to care when it shipped and item was in stock. Very pissed off.

I disagree. I got a lower

I disagree. I got a lower build kit early 2013 and one part was defective. Sent them an email asking how we could resolve the issue and that day they sent my a new one and some stickers. I didn't even have to complain or pressure them for a replacement. Good service even in the heart of the "panic."

I've always had great luck with PSA, you just have to be prepared to wait a while for them to ship stuff like this out.

Probably the same cheap

Probably the same cheap melonite M4 barrel AIM and others were selling, or at least sourced from the same place. It should be as accurate as any chrome-lined barrel, with superior wear characteristics. Maybe better, depends on who made it, how it was made, how well the treatment was applied, etc. For guaranteed accuracy, look to a well-known barrel manufacturer, but be prepared to pay more than this upper just for the barrel.

Agree, the barrel isn't the

Agree, the barrel isn't the greatest... Go with at least chrome line barrel deal they run that's made by FN, maybe the Hammer Forged one is the better. Its the same barrel Spikes and other Mid grade AR companies use.

Why do you want a chrome

Why do you want a chrome lined barrel over a melonite? Does "chrome" sound better??? Melonite has greater longevity and basically the same performance.
