    TRUTH. I have more rounds through my AR in a year then my brother in the marines and my friend who's a sgt. in the army COMBINED. I shot 1500 in one day... Dry. No FTF or FTE. Piston is a solution to a problem which never existed. It's not necessary unless shooting suppressed. Even then, no one I know that has a suppressed DI weapon has ever had a problem with it.

    And as I stated earlier, two brand new piston LWRCi rifles I've shot had constant FTF and FTE.

    They're different piston systems... Just saying. The AR piston platform isn't the greatest. I'll take any of the weapons you listed over a piston AR.

    Yes. PWS, LWRC and Adams Arms off the top of my head. Did an Adams Arms conversion on an AR I'd previously shot is well. I came right back off, went into the box and was sold. All sucked compared to a properly set up DI AR

    I know right?! TOTAL TRUTH! I mean, look at all these pictures I was able to quickly find in one of my folders of us totally not reloading. Because we actually never shot our rifles we ended up just giving our ammo to the muj so that they could shoot at us more :thumbsup:

    Only think I would add is that not all pistons are the same. A close friend spent $$$ on a POF when they came out. One of the earliest piston uppers and he went through two broken rods within the first 500 rounds. The design used a long op rod about the diameter of a gas tube. Seemed like a fragile design. I don't know if POF has changed their design since then or not. Other than that upper, I have zero piston AR experience, so I don't have a lot to add.

    Either way the AR piston design is not the best. I said before I'll shoot any other gas piston gun. You cannot compare the piston system in an AK, FAL, or M1 Carbine. They are all very different compared to that of an AR piston system which is far less reliable than any of the three. It's NOT the same.

    However this argument is like iPhone vs. android so it doesn't matter.

    I shoot DI, I don't necessarily like piston based on my experience and I think it's really just a cure for laziness because people hate cleaning their guns. A well maintained DI is just as reliable as a well maintained GP. And the part about no heat at the BCG isn't necessarily true on a GP AR. The difference is only a few degrees.
