Palmetto State Armory Gen2 PA10 .308 stripped upper receiver.

  • Forged 7075-T6 Aluminum
  • Precision Machined
  • Hardcoat anodized Mil-8625 Type3 Class 2
  • Uses PSA PA-10 Forward assist
  • Uses PSA PA-10 Dust cover assembly


The AR10 platform does not enjoy a common design between manufacturers, like the AR15.    As a result, there can and will be subtle differences in the parts kits of various manufacturers.  Some parts, like the fire control group, are shared with the AR15 platform to preserve the options for upgrading.  For best results, we recommend only using PSA PA10 parts with our uppers and lower receivers.  We do not recommend using other manufacturers parts in our products.0

Add To:

Made using the most advanced aerospace manufacturing technology to produce the industry's finest forged .308 uppers, our receivers are machined on an automated multi-million dollar manufacturing system which enables us to produce a product of unequaled quality and value.

These forged uppers are quality made using 7075-T6 aluminum. The finish is black hardcoat anodize per MIL-8625 Type 3 Class 2.  These uppers take PA10 ejection port cover assemblies as well as PA10 forward assist assemblies.


This is a Gen2 upper receiver.  It is functionally compatible with Gen1 lowers, but it has cosmetic style differences when mated to a Gen1 lower.

Will this MI hand guard fit a PA10 Gen2 upper receiver? According to MI a DPMS Low Profile tang area should measure .150" and a high profile should measure .210". My PA10 upper measures .191 so I'm stuck in the middle...?

Can i use handgards other than psa ones? Will ballistic advantage barrels pair well?
Wayne M on Apr 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: A large number of 308 AR hand guards will work as long as the correct height top rail is selected and has a DPMS barrel nut thread as armalite threads are a different pitch. Ballistic Advantage Barrels should pair fine as long as it has a properly paired barrel extension & BCG (DPMS barrel extensions are not compatible with armalite bolts and armalite barrel extensions are not compatible with DPMS bolts).

PSA 308's are a good platform for custom builds. I personally like the asthetics of their Gen-1 receivers over the Gen-2's for my builds and wish PSA would bring back the Gen-1 upper & lower receivers.

Best wishes with your build.
Is this a DPMS pattern upper ?
coasta B on May 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: yes it is but you have to use psa pins. and a dpms Low for end other than that yes it is dpms format
What's the thread pitch on the uppers?
Greg B on Jun 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: DPMS pattern barrel nut threads are 1-7/16” and 16 TPI- 2A. It will take DPMS compatible parts. I have used many different DPMS style parts. Also the upper is low profile. For a perfect match use PSA gan 2 lower
Will this work with a 6.5 Creedmoor build?
Porkwithrice on Dec 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I wish there was a simple yes or no.
Yes if you buy the barrel, bolt, And upper from PSA

Theoretically it will work No matter the brand.

But I’m finding out as I build my own AR-10 platorm, that’s every manufacturer is different. AR-15 / M-16 was contracted for government weapons, meaning certain specs. Every company was confined to the same specs, so all parts could be interchangeable for AR-15.

AR-10 is not , so each company “does their own thing”, so I have found little issues with each piece I try to kit together.

Hope this helps!
Will this work with 6.5 creedmoor build with a shilen blank cut by rainier arms to dpms specs? Thanks in advance
Shadowalker on Jun 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It should I'm not a 100 on this because I have not checked there specs that being said I bought a shilen blank and I'm turning the blank myself to get best posiable fit and finish / my build is also a 6.5 creed / I'm 90 percent sure this will work for you /usually thing don't have functional differences until you get into the accessories.
Are these considered low profile or high profile uppers?
Jasperina Spandex on May 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Low profile
I'm wanting to buy a particular handguard for this upper. But the company says it will only work with gen 1 style uppers, unless the barrel thread pitch is 1 7/16 X 16 tpi.. can anyone confirm that is upper has that barrel thread pitch?
Joe G on Feb 26, 2019
BEST ANSWER: All the PSA 308 / 6.5CM uppers I have bought have had 1-7/16"-16 TPI-2A ( DPMS Pattern ) threads.

PSA uses that on all their Large Frame AR uppers.
I have this upper and need a charging handle, but PSA's PA10 Charging Handle seems to never be in stock. Will most non-PSA .308 Charging Handles work in this upper or am I stuck in the purgatory of waiting for PSA to get its parts in stock?

Snug barrel fit !
I was very happy to see the barrel fit was snug.
Frankly, the PSA upper had a snugger barrel fit then another much higher costing Billet set I bought.

Anodizing was smooth and uniform... the receiver face was quite true, and I only need a minimum of time lapping it "true". I do this to all the various brand uppers, and all have benefited from it, accuracy wise.

I enjoy assembling uppers, and I can use the parts that I want. And completely control the assm. of it. Tweaking how I see fit.

These upper receivers aren't the first I have purchased.. and won't be the last.

Thank You PSA for making products that a working man can readily afford.

Good receiver
Receiver is very nice. 4 stars because it had a tight spot in it. With the carrier locked open the charging handle would not slide to the locked position with out a nudge. Usually it should just be free with no resistance. Paired with psa2 lower. No problem.

Worst product I've purchased from psa
I have a gen2 psa lower and just recently purchased the gen 2 stripped upper, figured the for would be perfect. This is not the case. Psa gen 2 forward assist doesn't fit tightly. It is so loose on the take down pond it's the worst I've seen. Check your specs psa! Not happy at all. I think it's time to try primary arms for a while

Perfect function
My son and I built an AR10 with a PSA upper and lower. I noticed that the fit was not tight and thought that would be a problem. It was not an issue at all, first time at the range after zeroing the scope we were shooting 2 inch groups at 100 yards with 145 grain Nato ammo. I believe if you are building a powerful gun you should use the upper and lower from the same manufacturer so function is not an issue. I finished the upper with a kit from PSA for the Forward assist and dust cover. The cover was very tight closing but opened easy. Because I wanted a 24" barrel I had to order from DeadShot barrels, PSA didn't have 24". I got a hand guard from Primary arms which was an easy fit on the upper and barrel, no problem lining up the rifle length gas tube.
