You can purchase piston uppers to fit up to lowers already owned. The piston upper is also a little heavier than DI uppers.

The Ruger 556 can be had for around $1400. I'd consider them of mid range quality but with Rugers excellent customer service.

Kind regards,

Don't have any personal experience with gas piston AR15s. Stag has a pretty good reputation.

I don't know much about them but I'm looking for a piston upper, too. Can't find the Adams in stock...

I've been tweaking AR rifles since the late '80s. Some are definitely better, but there aren't really many bad ones out there. Like so many other things in life, you get what you pay for.

If a guy is a govt contractor or in law enforcement, he might need a higher quality rifle. I'm describing someone who burns hundreds of rounds each week, possibly in full auto. This guy needs a Mil Spec rifle. Few here will ever operate at that level. Don't let anyone pressure into buying.g what THEY think you need. Get what you can afford and shoot it like you're trying to kill it. I bet you can't!

Most consumer AR rifles will be dependable for 6k-10k rounds. Assess your expected use "reality" and buy what you can afford. The AR is so adaptable and easy to work on. It would be quite easy to purchase upgrades and install them yourself, as funds allowed.

Piston driven is quite dependable but not really necessary or worth the added expense and added weight for the typical shooter. Yes, I want one. It will be an addition to the other three direct impingement rifles I already have.

You can email me if you have any specific questions. They're a bunch of fun to build and shoot.

Kind regards,

Haywire
