Palmetto State Armory .22LR AR Upper



Log in to see fewer ads
Anyone have any feedback on PSA .22LR AR uppers?

They appear to use a bolt similar to, if not identical to the CMMG/RTB bolt, but the price is much better than RTB or CMMG, and they're actually available.

Thanks in advance.

Bob

Is it exactly the same as your current CMMG units with a cottering pin to retain the firing pin and a solid steel pin to retain the extractor, or does it use roll pins like the old CMMG units?

A range buddy of mine just bought one and has nothing but problems with it. Failures to feed and fire. Not saying they are all bad but his seems to be. Your mileage may vary

Sounds about right for a portion of CMMG bolts as well. PSA bolts are nearly if not totally identical to CMMG in my experience.

I have a CMMG .22 BCG kit (and I love my CMMG stuff…Banshee rocks!)…the .22 LR functions like a charm…but accuracy is lacking (rifling twist…my .223 twist at one in nine compared to the BCA upper twist of one in sixteen inches)…I enjoy the CMMG kit but the dedicated upper with the proper twist is superior IMHO ��

I have one PSA 8.5" upper and another on the way. I've had the first one for a number of years and never a moment's trouble. It is indeed a CMMG pattern bolt/barrel.

At one time PSA was getting all of the 22lr parts directly from CMMG. I don't know if that has changed or not.

And it is no different with the Right To Bear branded 22 bolts and barrels. Those too are made by CMMG.

I posed the question because the first reports of PSA 22lr BCGs indicated they may well have been CMMG parts, but apparently were older, outdated stock in which the extractor and FP were secured by spring pins.

I've never changed an extractor on the line, but I've done it with firing pins.

PSA vs. CMMG

So it seems the PSA upper is a CMMG copy.

Thanks for the feedback.

PSA .22 uppers

I have a PSA 8.5 upper that is very reliable but it grouped like a shotgun replaced it with a CMMG barrel which is very accurate the PSA barrels can be hit or miss.

I'll echo that. It's my experience as well.

Great customer service is of little use when there are no products available.

I have an RTB upper, and given a choice, another from that company is what I'd have preferred, but I got tired of waiting for them to have a 10" upper in stock, so I'm left with PSA.
