    Talking $129 ML piston kit-1 day sale-

    Specials

    CDNN has got the AA piston kit on sale for $129 in mid length for .750 barrels.

    i am very tempted to try one since i haven't done a piston drive ar-15 yet.

    only thing is i got plenty of other things to buy/build--

    might be worth a shot before plunking down mucho $$$ for one of the other piston driven solutions like a SCAR or sig.

    this sale expires at 16:00 central time.

    j4. Your link shows knifes.. I don't do knifes, when they get that close I whip it at them and run..
    I do not know anything about the piston driven ARs..
    Interesting demonstration on one of the outdoor channel shows..
    Guy placed two ARs on a table in the sun. One standard, other piston driven..
    Had a heat gun to test before and after firing a 30 round mag..
    Both weapons were about 100 deg. from sitting there..
    Be damned if the standard AR did not go up 30 degs after firing and the piston driven actually lost 2 degs after he fired, down too 98 degs..
    Now he was measuring the breech AO, not the barrel..
    Hell I don't know, he looked like he had college.

    the sale is over --they still got um though-same price-but you got to pay for shipping and you don't get all those little freebies--now they got knives on the sale page


    one of the gripes about the AR/M16s bolt carrier group is that hot gasses are routed through the carrier and out the side of the carrier.

    this is a sure way to heat up the bolt and carrier and gunk things up.

    now for us sportsmans it don't matter that much cause were not going to be firing ten 100 rd beta mags back to back full auto from the door position of an egg beater.


    i think i just want to try one of these piston set ups because that is one of the things i don't have in the ar-15s and i have done about everything else-- new link AR-15 Mid Length Retro-Fit Gas Piston System New American Tactical

    Nice deal.... but I haven't taken any of my AR's out of the safe since I got my (piston driven) SIG rifles.

    Piston conversion kits do have some good points, but they not with out their own problems...carrier tilt/wear and excessive heat build up in the hand guards are two of the most common.
