    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,......

    I would like to know what you think of a piston?

    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
