We are happy to announce that we are manufacturing our own upper receivers. These receivers are made to work directly with the Adams Arms Piston System. The receiver hole has been cut specifically to work with our system eliminating the need for a receiver bushing. They are machined to mil spec standards and are cut with M4 feed ramps. They are A3 flat top receivers with milled T marks filled with white paint. They have been finished with a type 3 hard coat anodizing with a dry film lube.








These are only going to be able to be purchased through our certified dealers listed below and we are making a limited quantity each month.

MSRP on these will be $126.

So if you want one of these new receivers give one of these guys a call before they have to start taking back orders.

Spike's Tactical offers a package including an upper receiver with the correct hole diameter. It's called the "ultimate piston conversion kit"...or something to that effect.

Here's the link:

How does the new receiver hold up without the bushing? Steel rod on aluminum can't be good even with the hard coating.

There is no lateral force applied to the inside of the hole it is merely a bridge to guide the rod to its predetermined location.
I have several that we've been running full auto full months. No issues!

All four of the dealers listed in the original post have upper receivers ready to be shipped. Whether it's a new build or you just want to upgrade the receiver you have, these guys are willing to help.

Go to their websites or give them a call to get yours.
