    I wouldnt be surprised if you see alot of votes for Adams Arms? If Sabre Defense went with an AA piston setup on their new piston AR then they must be good? Sabre is a top tier manufacturer. I would not go with the cheapest when converting an AR. Piston AR's get enough hate as it is. I have seen a at least one guy dump their Osprey retrofit kit but that doesnt mean they arent good products since I dont really know why they dropped them? I just know the guy had issues with the retrofit kit on his SBR. That may be more of an SBR issue than a retrofit piston kit issue?

    I have an Adams Arms carbine-length on an M4 style upper that seems to work just fine. YMMV.

    So if he's sharp as a Tack and you are laughing does that make him Tack-Tickle?
