I have an Adams Arms piston retrofit kit on a DSA upper, and I have been very pleased with its performance so far. It does keep the action cleaner (not clean, but cleaner) than a DI model, and it does keep the heat out front and away from the action.

BUT...it is no more accurate or reliable than my DI ARs. I bought it just to try it out for myself...personal experience is better than internet rumour. I do not prefer it over my DI ARs, but neither do I shun it. It is just a play pretty for me, and I have played with it a lot since I bought it!

LMT, POF, Stag, S&W and CMMG are some of the makers who offer complete piston uppers. But IIRC, Adams Arms offers complete uppers now, also.
