    Decided to give a piston upper a try.......

    BCM lower with MOE grip, trigger guard & Stock from JN_FSU
    The upper is an Adams Arms Tactical Elite 14.5 with a pinned Surefire adapter.
    Upper has a two piece Sampson, removable lower section, Troy sights top it off.
    I do need to pick up some FDE ladder covers,....OD just isn't getting it done.
    Range time next week,......

    Keep an eye on the inside rear of the upper receiver to monitor for impacts from the BCG being tilted by the operating rod. #1 issue with piston systems on the AR platform.

    Thus far, I really like it! Getting range time later this week.

    The AA uppers come with an anti-tilt buffer but still something to keep an eye on
