I've been tossing the idea of a psa or a m&p 15 sport there both great

I keep my eye on the Palmetto stripped lowers.

I do not have any personal experience with Palmetto rifles however there are well respected by most folks on AR15.com. The specs read like that of a Colt (which is considered by many to be the gold standard). 4150, mpi & pressure tested bolt are considered to be top tier and closer to true mil-spec (most commercial manufacturers do not test bolts or use 4150 steel - Colt, LMT, BCM, Spikes & Noveskie as well as PSA do). The 1/7 will allow shooting of heavier bullets. Components sound fine to me. The rifle should be good to go.

I am also eyeing up the Palmetto rifles. IIRC, Noveske uses barrels with thicker chrome lining as well - but not at this price.
An AR is near the top of my wishlist.
