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.
Cover both sides of the “charge” by upgrading your current AR308 charging handle with the ambidextrous Tomahawk Charging Handle. While the shape and laser engraving are inspired by the design of our POF-USA American Patriot Tomahawk, the Tomahawk Charging Handle has optimized functionality as well. For quick and efficient operation with either hand, It features over-sized levers on both sides to make palm “blading” or finger thumb charging a breeze.
All components have been CNC machined to exacting standards in the USA from American 7075 billet aluminum and finished with durable black type III hard coat anodize.
Brownells has teamed up with M-Pro 7 to develop the M-PRO 7 AR 308 CLEANING KIT. This cleaning kit specifically for maintaining an AR-type rifle in peak operating condition. Now you can clean your AR using the same operationally tested products used by the United States Armed Forces.
The Remington Defense R10 SA 308 16″ is built on the AR direct impingement rifle platform and chambered in the accurate and heavy hitting 7.62x51mm NATO/.308 Winchester cartridge. Both the upper and lower receivers are hard coat anodized to ensure a durable and non-reflective finish. The carbine length barrel is 16 inches long and has a 1:10” twist perfect for stabilizing heavy 174+ grain bullets, the ideal ammunition for a medium to long range tactical rifle. The muzzle is 5/8×24 tpi threaded, making it compatible with the vast majority of muzzle attachments for .308 Win barrels.
The handguard is Remington’s RAHG design, with a top rail for optics and/or laser, then 7 other mountable surfaces with M-LOK style attachment points. The rifle features ambidextrous controls for the magazine release, bolt-release, and safety selector making this rifle a great option for left-handed shooters. The Remington Defense R10 SA 308 rifle features Magpul’s MOE SL-S telescoping stock, which has 6 positions for adjusting to the ideal length of pull and has a generous cheek weld. One the most useful features of the SL-S are the two battery compartments built into the stock that are sealed with O-rings to ensure the compartments are waterproof up to 10 meters and at only 2.4 inches wide it’s the narrowest storage stock on the market.
The SAVAGE MSR 10 LONG RANGE 6.5 CREEDMOOR RIFLE Model #22905 packs all the features and upgrades you would expect from a Savage precision rifle into a single platform. This MSR 10 is chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor and is built on a compact frame with a non-reciprocating side charging handle. It’s BLACKHAWK!® nickel boron treated two-stage target trigger and Magpul PRS® adjustable buttstock optimize the inherent accuracy of the upgraded Savage barrel, which features 5R rifling and a Melonite QPQ finish.
Brownells two variants of the BRN-10 rifle are based on the Armalite AR-10, both chambered in .308 Win./7.62 NATO. These models have the “trigger style” charging handle located on the top of the receiver inside the carry handle along with the same lines and contours as the first production AR-10s from the 1950s. With receiver sets designed in conjunction with FM-Products, these rifles are compatible with standard DPMS/SR25 components including triggers, magazines, barrels, bolt carrier groups and furniture sets. The BRN-10A (shown) has the same brown furniture found on early rifles, like the models issued by the Netherlands, while the BRN-10B is based on later models adopted by Cuba and other nations.
Suitable for hunting and personal protection, the Palmetto State Armory PSA Gen2 PA10 18″ Mid-Length .308 Winchester Nitride Classic Rifle part number 516446285 is a low cost entry level AR10, AR 308 style weapon. This complete rifle is cheaper than many “OEM” type rifles and is a solid foundation to build upon.
The LANTAC E-BCG Enhanced Bolt Carrier Group is precision machined from 8620 Steel with a shot peened bolt manufactured from Carpenter 158 and Magnetically Particle Inspected. The entire carrier assembly is NiB, Electroless Nickel Boron coated with the patented, advanced UCT EXO process, unlike standard NiB coatings. This offers extreme lubricity with a friction coefficient of .02 and surface hardness of 82-85 Rockwell C.
The carriers patent pending design features unique shrouded and forward facing gas ports that have also been re sized so that gas is vented differently to a standard carrier. This results in a system that runs flatter with a smoother energy pulse. In addition, the system also runs cooler and cleaner and there is also less pressurization of the upper receiver when running a suppressed barrel. The flared boss at the tail of the carrier enhances the BCG’s lock position within the upper and makes it more consistent, resulting in an accuracy improvement.
All critical dimensions are hard turned / ground after heat treat and the bore of the carrier and gas key have been hard chrome lined for the best possible wear resistance. All E-BCG’s feature the LANTAC CP-R360 patent pending domed cam pin that is machined from 17-4PH Stainless Steel and hardened to H900 condition (45RC approx). The ultra-smooth head reduces wear within the upper receiver. Gas keys are properly staked at four points and only grade 8 fasteners are used in assembly.
Lately It seems every weekend I’m greeted with another news article relating to “Ghost Guns” or as we refer to them 80% receivers. I just take another sip of my coffee and shake my head in amazement. I wonder to myself is the other side this naive or ignorant to simply not understand that firearms are simply mechanical devices and with modern manufacturing technologies and process they are easily reproducible. Then my gun owner paranoia hits me and I wonder if maybe there’s more to this, a bigger, more sinister agenda. Maybe it’s not that billet of aluminum they are trying to keep out of our hands after all but instead all the individual parts that make the whole of a gun.
What if in the next few years the political climate swings far enough in the other direction that the anti-gun crowd gains enough of a political majority to do whatever they want with regards to gun control. What if they find a way to make the critical parts of a gun regulated. Parts like the upper receivers, triggers and barrels. Imagine a scenario where folks in restricted states not able to buy any parts to repair or upgrade their AR-15’s and AR-10’s. These states in most cases have already restricted magazines. What if for the rest of the country where the guns are still legal the owners are not permitted to buy aftermarket parts? What if all firearm work must be performed by manufacturers or their “licensed” representatives. This would most likely choke most of the gun industry to death. Think about this for a minute.

When it comes to rifle barrels they can often be separated into different classes of performance. The top level performers are what I refer to as “No Excuses Barrels”. Lilja is one of the small handful of custom barrel manufactures producing these no excuses barrels for winning competitive shooters world wide. More importantly Lilja Rifle Barrels was named exclusive supplier for .30 caliber Mk13, Mod 7, and .50 caliber Mk15 barrels for the Navy SEALS. Lilja is now offering benchrest level performance 6.5 Creedmoor drop in barrels for 308 AR/AR308 shooters. They are available in 20″, 24″ fluted and unfluted. Barrels are also available in .260 and .308 Winchester.
Take the long range accuracy of your 308 AR, AR 308 or AR-10 to new levels with a simple barrel change to 6.5 Creedmoor.
