Midway has it for $599.99 http://www.midwayusa.com/viewproduct/?productnumber=674968

per Adam Arms web page it has M4 feed ramps

I like how the whole piston system comes right out the front for maintenance

I am thinking of ordering one from Midway to build a gas piston AR-15

If you have built this upper, what lower receiver did you use?

How did it all work out?

Will a DD Omega 7 work with this? I have one on my Stag model 3 and it looks like it should clear the piston

Thanks

I have built 3 of them, 1st with a spikes lower 5.56 1/9, 2nd with a S&W lower 5.45 x39, 3rd with Rock River, 5.56 1/7, midlength. They all work without issues, check the AA website for handguards that work with these uppers.

I installed an Adams kit on an LMT upper. Works great! That is a hell of a price for a great piston upper!

Omega 7.0 works great, that is what I used. It is on an LMT lower of course....

Ordered that from Midway a few days ago. Notified today that it had been filled and will ship soon. I am still wondering what the catch is. AA piston system, chrome lined barrel, M4 feed ramps, 1:7 twist, mid-length gas system, and $599. Looking forward to trying it our

I put mine on a DPMS lower. I bolted it on and went shooting. It runs perfect and really stays clean. I'm around 500 rds and all looks as good as new. I did the troy rail and can't remember which DDefense doesn't work. An email to Adams Arms will get a quick response.

I love mine. I need to put more rounds through it. No issues thus far.
On a SW lower.

I did an install on a Colt M4, no probs and runs like a top!

I assembled my own complete Adams 5.45 upper using all of their parts that works flawlessly. Then I assmebled another Adams kit on one of the new Rainier budget stainless barrels and it shoots flawlessly and very accurately. As soon as the Spikes barrel nut comes out I'm gonna change over my other AR to a Spikes as well.

Runs like a CHAMP

Adams Arms mid-length upper with Daniel Defense Omega 9 rail on a CMMG lower.

http://westernsportonline.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=37&zenid=2f8kvok5cfc5mdgq2ibqhmihj0 Got both my uppers from here. Plus they have rail options with the uppers. The AA's are all pinned gas blocks!!!

My first Ar was a AA upper on a noveske lower. (then I got a BCM upper, and that became my main gun)

Now it doesn't have a AVF nor are the magpul sights still on. (Plan on getting troy buis, and some scope of some kind)

How does that UBR balance out the medium contour Adams Arms upper? I was thinking of doing the same thing.
Link Posted: 1/18/2011 9:05:42 PM EDT
Built the upper in 14.5, mine is predomnantly on a Bushmaster lower.
Personally Iove it, being able to adjust my gas system to if the can is on or not makes life easy.
The most common complaint I hear is that the gas block is "large and bulky blah blah blah", I personally like the fact that it lines up PERFECTLY with my DD Omega 7 rail so I can mount the ATILLA all the way forward so my thumb switch mates with my grip PERFECTLY!

My only complaint is that without using a lighter spring my ENINDINE buffer would short stroke keeping the bolt from locking to the rear on an empty mag when running without the can, it worked just perfectly in every other way with the enindine but was spotty on locking the bolt to the rear without the canm. Now that the H2 is in, it functions flawlessly regardless.

If I knew how to upload pic I would, but sadly, I seem to only be good at shooting guns, not pics. If you need a pic feel free to PM me with an email and I'll shoot you a picture.

I haven't put anything together with an Adams upper, but I have a factory Adams complete rifle that is incredible. Fit and finish is perfect,

Both of my Adams Arms uppers run flawlessly. I love them. Inexspensive compared to the other guns I see of like quality, great customer service and fast shipping. Can't go wrong with AA

Just put a midlength AA upper on my wife's. Cmmg lower, with MOE furniture. She put 100 rounds thru it today and not one problem. Awesome for the price. Makes me rethink that POF I just bought.
