I was thinking about buying Palmetto State Armory's 10.5 Diamond upper until I noticed that it was a mid length gas system.

I plan on using it with a suppressor, so I don't know if it matters, but should I hold out for a carbine length gas system? I've heard that there isn't enough dwell time.

I gotta call TYPO on this one.  I can't imaging that a 10.5" barrel has a mid length gas system.  I'd call or e-mail PSA to get clarification.

I was thinking the same thing. When zooming all the way in on the pic it appears to be carbine length.

They've got so many offerings that it's obvious they are copying and pasting descriptions.  10.5" is going to be a carbine length gas

I was thinking the same thing, so I called and the lady on the phone confirmed that it was in fact a mid length. For what its worth, she sounded like she just read the description as well.

At either rate, is this a good upper to go with? I don't think I can afford to build an upper like the MK18.

Def a typo. a 10.5 would be carbine

The port would be at the end of the barrel if it was a middy, for sure its a carbine length.

A mid-length gas tube itself is 11.5". Its gotta be a carbine gas or not a 10.5" barrel.
