I debated for the last week about getting another AR, and whether I wanted to go DI again, but I just prefer piston ARs. Its just my preference, and I've had nothing but good experience with them. I did some research, and decided on a PWS (Primary Weapons Systems) MK114. I got it for a screaming good deal here, and due to the fact that Reds Trading Post is in Idaho with PWS, they got 4 of these approximately 3-4 days ago, so my rifle is fresh from the line. ......which means it has the Gen 2 MagPul BUIS on it, which I'm eager to try out. http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.aspx?Item=237689586 What intrigued me about PWS, is how they use a long stroke piston, as opposed to LWRCs short stroke piston. The PWS system is very similar to an AK-47. http://primaryweapons.com/store/pc/viewPrd.asp?idproduct=178&idcategory=15 I've read nothing but positive reviews on the PWS MK-series of rifles. They seem to offer about the same amount of quality as LWRC from what I've read from those who have both and LWRC and a PWS. At 6 pounds, 13 ounces, its a very light rifle; about 2 pounds lighter than my LWRC M6A2. In terms of value, seems to be a lot for the money; BCM Charging Handle, MagPul furniture and MBUIS, BCG and all internals coated in NIC Industries "Micro Slick". I plan on adding nothing more than a V-TAC sling, some XTM panels, and a MagPul RVG to it; this one will be my lightweight K.I.S.S. rifle. Later down the road, I *might* add an Aimpoint T1 Micro to it. I can't wait to get it. I will definitely be providing a nice comparison between my two LWRCs and this when it arrives.
