PSA GEN2 PA-65 20" 6.5 CREEDMOOR 1:8 SS 15" M-LOK UPPER RECEIVER
The PSA GEN2 PA-65 20″ 6.5 CREEDMOOR 1:8 SS 15″ M-LOK UPPER RECEIVER by Palmetto State Armory is a relatively inexpensive way for PA-10 owners to get in the 6.5 Creedmoor game. Today with market saturation PSA is frequently offering these 6.5 Creedmoor uppers for $550 versus $790. PSA has done a great job with their GEN2 PA-10 308 AR platform. PSA GEN2 6.5 Creedmoor uppers should only be used with their corresponding PA-10 lowers. They do not mate perfectly with any other 308 AR platform.
