AR-15 Freedom Uppers On Sale
Kevin Felts 02.09.17
Interested in building an economy AR-15? Something that you can take to the range, go plinking with, and will not cost a lot of money? Look no further than the Palmetto State Armory (PSA) Freedom line of upper receivers.
The standard military grade M4 has a chrome lined barrel. Freedom uppers have a Nitride finish rather than being chrome lined. Production cost of a chrome line barrel are greater than that of Nitride, so the savings are passed down to the consumer.
I have dealt with Palmetto State Armory on a number of occasions and have always been happy with their quality.
Be sure to check local laws before ordering.
Regular price: $369.99, sale price: $249.99 – PSA 16″ M4 CARBINE 5.56 NATO 1:7 NITRIDE 13.5″ M-LOK FREEDOM UPPER – NO BCG OR CH. Basic M4 carbine that is not chrome lined.
Regular price: $589.99, sale price: $399.99 – PSA 20″ RIFLE LENGTH 5.56 NATO 1/7 NITRIDE A2 FREEDOM RIFLE KIT. If you want a smooth shooting AR-15, the 20 inch barrel with rifle length gas system is the best of the bunch.
Regular price: $469.99, sale price: $299.99 – PSA 16″ MIDLENGTH 5.56 NATO 1/7 NITRIDE 12″ KEYMOD SLANT FREEDOM UPPER W/ MBUS SIGHT SET- NO BCG OR CH. The midlength gas system has a smoother recoil than the carbine gas system. When I built my predator hunting rifle I went with a midlength. This does not include the charging handle or bolt carrier group.
Regular price: $139.99, sale price: $89.99 – PSA AR15 MOE LOWER BUILD KIT – WITHOUT FCG – BLACK. This comes with a Magpul grip and stock but does NOT contain a fire control group. The fire control group is the trigger assembly.
Regular price: $549.99, sale price: $339.99 – PTAC 16″ CARBINE 1/7 PHOSPHATE RIFLE KIT. Except for the lower receiver, this is everything you need to build an entry level AR-15. Add a $50 lower receiver and you have a $400 AR-15. The barrel is not Nitride or chrome lined. This is a very basic entry level AR-15.
