PSA complete uppers decent?

Recommended Posts

Since I am picking up two of those NJGF PSA stripped lowers sometime this week, figured it is time to start doing an other rifle build with one of the lowers. I am pursuing on Reddit in the gun accessories for sale subreddits, and noticed  one of these used for sale https://palmettostatearmory.com/psa-18-rifle-length-223-wylde-1-7-stainless-steel-15-lightweight-m-lok-upper-with-bcg-ch-516445214.html

My questions to the forums are this:

1. What things to look for when buying a used complete upper

2: how are PSA complete uppers? I am just going to be using it for a general shooter for the range, got a few other AR rifles for to use in the collection.

way way too many issues with complete psa anything for me to take a chance.  The forums are littered with issues so buyer beware.  I'd say build one, super easy and get what you want how you want it.  just my opinion

Round count,  Fit and finish,  Take it for a spin see if it has any loading or ejecting issues, And accuracy  issues.

If i'm selling a upper you are required to take it for a spin,

I saw that upper listed a few days back on reddit, he deleted it and relisted today.  It doesn't come with the complete BCG.  Not sure if that is due to a failure or what not.  The listing says he has 500 rounds through it, so multiply that out a bit.

I have one on my 20" Rifle build.  It works.  Haven't had a single reliability issue with it and I have a good amount of rounds downrange on it.  It's not the nicest, it's not the prettiest, but it works.

all that matters is it goes bang!  :)

I have a PSA Premium 20” upper I’m very happy with. It has the CHF barrel, and the Premium BCG. It’s been flawless, and very accurate. 
 

Sample size of one, I know, but this one has been good to me. 
I have heard of problems with PSAs lower lines of uppers.

I was tempted but I found a complete upper on here for sale that I am gonna get.
