I’m looking to get an 11.5” upper and have a couple questions.
First, if I cut down a 16” carbine barrel will it be reliable as an 11.5”?
Second, any issues with PSA long term? I’m looking for a reliable gun but not at BCM or DD prices.
I have a DD carbine that is my number one and a PSA upper, the one I’m thinking of cutting down, that has ran well but I’m only about 500rds in.
It will work but why not just buy a new barrel like the one above?
Every day, the New York Times carries a motto in a box on its front page. "All the News That's Fit to Print," it says. It's been saying it for decades, day in and day out. I imagine most readers of the canonical sheet have long ceased to notice this bannered and flaunted symbol of its mental furniture. I myself check every day to make sure that the bright, smug, pompous, idiotic claim is still there. Then I check to make sure that it still irritates me. If I can still exclaim, under my breath, why do they insult me and what do they take me for and what the hell is it supposed to mean unless it's as obviously complacent and conceited and censorious as it seems to be, then at least I know I still have a pulse. You may wish to choose a more rigorous mental workout but I credit this daily infusion of annoyance with extending my lifespan. -Christopher Hitchens

It didn’t occur to me, doh.
Then I’d have another barrel laying around which would turn into another gun. Win!
I have a PSA 10.5” upper. Run it w/ and w/o a suppressor. No problems whatsoever. Decent accuracy as well. I suspect you would have no problems.

Just buy a new PSA upper - on the assumption you are making a 11.5" AR pistol or a Short Barreled Rifle.
11.5" PSA Upper with $229 w/BCG & CH.
10.5" PSA Pistol kit, everything but the lower.
^Thus the second part of my question as I’m looking at those as well.
Yup, I'd buy a barrel vs. cutting one down. I really like Faxon

The gas port sizes are different if you cut down a 16 inch. I believe they are substantially larger, 20-40% or so (going off faded memory) on the 11.5 vs the 16. You'll have to research the correct gas port size and buy the correct drill bit to make the hole larger.
This day and age? Just buy the 11.5 upper.
BCM had a article years ago on why the 11.5 was superior to the 10.5.
I bought a Colt 11.5 subsequently, and it works flawlessly.

I had an 11.5 mid length Faxon. It was really reliable and accurate. People will try to say that 11.5 is too short for mid length gas. I disagree.

I have a PSA 12-in 6.5 Grendel. Accuracy is on part with M4 using milspec ammunition. I put a good 500 rounds through it not cleaning the gun at all no issues. A lot of the PSA's have adjustable gas blocks. This is both a blessing and a curse as you can adjust the gun for specific ammo. If it goes out of spec you're trying to figure out what gas setting it needs to be at.
For non serious guns I like PSA.
But then of course I might be a 13 year old girl who reads alot of gun magazines, so feel free to disregard anything I post.
