I'm sure there will be plenty of HK 416 answers with no experience behind the weapon.
Seeing as I have no experience with the 416, I would say POF.

Bench shooting is fun but I highly doubt I'll ever defend my life from the bench.
Train hard, shoot straight and continue mission.

There's not one that's "BEST" at this point in time. All have a unique take on how to replace the gas tube with a piston with most designs being similar to each other. PWS and RRA are probably the two designs that are the most unique. The HK, while not perfect, is probably going to be the most widely tested and used rifle, at least from a military standpoint.

Which rifle offers the features you want? Which rifle seems to offer the best value for the money? These questions are more easily answered...

I think you'll get about 100 different answers depending on who you ask.

X2, Do you want a piston built upper or a retro fit? My piston of choice is my LMT MRP cqb, sold my bulky heavy POF for it. Sort of like rack grade AR vs. boutique imo.

You and I seem to be in the same boat. Buying my first AR and looking at "pistons." Have found LMT and Ruger to be the most talked about and I'm trying to decide between the 2.

FWIW, it's the only other (besides HK) piston AR with combat use.

I'm very happy with my Adcor BEAR thus far. While the new design is very promising, it is obviously relatively new, so there's some risk involved. Seems to be working just find for everyone, though.

If I had wanted a more proven design, I probably would have gone with an LWRC A2 or A3. I also really like how you can get them CeraKoted from the factory.


The HK MR556 is obviously a contender, but I don't understand why it weighs so much.

I'm voting POF. Amazing barrels, no springs in the piston, and the NP3 coat is amazing. That being said, it all comes down to personal preference. Look at the different systems and see what fits you the most. Look for the features you want and avoid those you don't.

I have an Adams arms middy and a lwrc m6a2 I like both but I haven't put very many rounds through the lwrc yet to really judge. I have not had any problems with the Adams arms in over 2000 rounds of all types of ammo.

LWRC has churned out a huge let down on the first round of these UCIW units. They DO NOT have the new ambi lower or the mini-sopmod stock from SHOT show. That is crap, not to mention their pricing is seriously out of whack. Especially for something that you cannot even break down in the field in any sort of decent time-frame. A $10 car stock on a $2400 rig? Non-milspec buffer extension. You probably couldn't put a can on it if you wanted to because the FH indexes behind the awkward little thumbscrews. This thing is not worth $2000 much less $2400. IMHO - You can do better by yourself from scratch for much less.

I am very interested in your findings. Please let us know your thoughts after say 2-3000 rounds down range with each. I think that you will see that, despite the exorbitantly high price of the LWRC, neither will out do the other my much in any department other than the fact that the AA is much quicker to clean and has the adjustable gas block.

You realize those weapons were developed for a specific foreign military contract? They weren't developed with civilian sales in mind and the price is a reflection of the "collectors premium" of that weapon (allegedly 1 of 4 in private hands in the US). If I were looking for a weapon of that type I would get the PSD, unless I was a collector of such things.

my LWRC M6A2 SPR is unbelievable- so solid, shoots anything ive run thru it, well balanced and accurate- truly a modern classic. just find one and shoulder/shoot it for yourself- then decide.
