    Has anyone had any experience with the PSD 15? It's an AR 15 with the following specs:

    Collapsible 6 position M4 stock
    Matched, forged, flat top upper and lower receivers
    Mil-spec fire control parts
    Removable carry handle with A2 rear sight
    M-16 bolt carrier with properly staked gas key
    MP (Magnetic Particle) & HPT (High Pressure Tested) bolt
    M4 feed ramps
    16 inch,1-7 twist, chrome lined, 4150, M4 profile barrel
    A2 sight block properly pinned with 2-0 taper pins
    A2 flash suppressor
    Mil-spec anodized upper and lower finish
    Mil-spec parkerized barrel finish

    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.
