    The Adam's Arms piston uppers are completely melonited, so you won't have to worry about shooting the corrosive ammo. I found 5.45 x 39 for .12 shipped to my door. There aren't any problems with jamming either. Overall, I'm very happy. The upper will pay for itself in a couple thousand rounds.

    I own one of the Smith & Wesson 5.45 rifles. I have put a couple thousand rounds through it and never had a malfunction until my last range trip. The rifle was clean and oiled and I had only fired 60 or 70 rounds when a spent case stuck solidly in the chamber. I was shooting Bulgarian surplus. The empty was stuck so well I had to bring the rifle home and hammer it out with a solid rod through the bore. I have never had a stuck case before in my life. Anyone know what would have caused this? All I can think of is maybe the round was oversized or produced excessive pressure.

    I never had a stuck round in a rifle like that. Lot of stuck rounds in revolvers due too cheap purchase of re loads for plinking at the range.
    Shell actually split and it took the same method you used too get it out.
    What does the case look like? Is it split open?
