Palmetto State Armory Stripped Lower Receiver

Today I signed for my PSA stripped lower receiver! I was very nicely impressed with its quality. The finish is perfect and I'll soon see how the fit is. I will be doing my first build next month, and I promise to document it with plenty of pictures. I have recently bought a CMMG lower parts kit and those parts seem great, too. I'm really looking forward to assembling it once my ridiculous waiting period is over -- next Friday.

Good to hear. My PSA Lower is supposed to arrive at GC tomorrow and hopefully I'll have it before next week is over!

The fit on all mine has been flawless.

My PSA rifle kit is supposed to be here tomorrow. I'll post a review when I assemble it.

I plan to go with PSA for my upper and parts kit as well. Just gotta wait until I get the money to order it. Did you go with a PSA parts kit for your gun? If so, which one did you use?

My gun is actually a weird mix of parts. In the lower, I have a Spikes Tactical LPK, VLTOR receiver extension, Colt Castle Nut, Colt Action Spring, Spikes T2 Buffer, MOE+ Grip, MOE trigger guard, Magpul ASAP. The lower itself is one of Engage Armament's.

I will say that the PSA LPK produces a very similar trigger to the Spikes Tactical LPK, and I have zero complaints with the Spikes LPK.

That is quite a mix of parts, but hey, it makes it orginal! All the PSA reviews I've read have been good so it looks like my entire first AR will be a PSA gun, I can't wait to get it built and go shooting. Seems too far away.
