Default difference between these 2 AR's

Palmetto State Armory 16" M4 and 16" M4A1 .
Is there any difference between these 2 . All I see on the spec sheet is maybe different barrel material not sure ? And a combat trigger on the M4A1 ?
Someone please explain I'm placing my order tomorrow and need to get this figured out
Thanks,
Scott

the only m4a1 i see is the hammer forged one..... That's a nice barrel. Worth the money imo.

Yeah, we need them. I'd guess a different barrel profile.

Or maybe 3rd burst vs. full auto?

You can always ask PSA too.

I tried but all I got was a voice mail saying to email them, which I did but no reply . They are the $599 and the $619 gun that when u click on is on sale for $599 .
Palmetto State Armory 16" M4 Chrome Lined, MP, Carbine

Palmetto State Armory 16" M4A1 Carbine

Yup back until I get this one figured out just appears that its basically the same gun . Same generic pics on both guns

It appears that the entire upper of the M4 is chrome lined whereas the M4A1 is not entirely chrome lined.

Sorry I did not edit my last reply quick enough, but I edited it with the correct answer.
