    Palmetto State Armory 9mm AR15

    Up for sale is my PSA 9mm AR. This rifle has a hybrid upper that will work with either a Colt or Glock lower. This has a Colt lower so takes Colt SMG and modified Uzi mags and will come with 1x 7 shot mag as pictured.

    Has a 10.5" barrel with, I think a 1/2x36 thread. Katipo Research A cat stock. MLOK handguard.

    Has fired approximately 150 rounds out of the box and is basically new.

    $1600 shipped.

    Never ran it suppressed, never tested accuracy, just shot random stuff on a berm with an Eotech. It had cycling issues to start but they were fixed and it runs like a clock now.

    Bugger, I'm keen - I was buying another off a forum member but then he changed his mind to keep it - the only worry I have is the thread on these appears to be 1/2x36, which is no go for aluminium DPT suppressors (too fine). Anyone know if it could be rethreaded to 1/2-20? I don't think there is enough barrel length to play with it was chopped and rethreaded....?

    Sold pending funds sorry. Will let you know if it doesn't go ahead @Tikka7mm08

    Apparently MAE will make a can for you that fits these threads. Thats what I was going to get.

    I've got a MAE on my blackout, very heavy, very effective. I rang DPT and if he had said yes AOK this was on like Donkey Kong. Thanks Beavis.

    It just wouldn't run full stop. Constant failure to eject, double feeds, stove pipes etc. I sent it back to Ken and they added spacers to the buffer tube and tweaked the extractor. When I got it back I took a box of Barnaul and a box of Sellier & Bellot to the range and it churned through the lot flawlessly.

    I failed to mention that mine is not a PSA.
    It's based on a ddles glock lower.
    The upper works perfectly on others lowers.... so it suggests that I have issues with my lower...
