I have not seen these mentioned in quite a while. Are they still in favor or is everyone using USGI again?

I use them in my spacegun for NRA Highpower and they've been no problem in over 3,000 rounds. They seem to last longer than the GI rings. It was a bit tight at first, but a drop of CLP and ~100 rounds loosened it up. There's still plenty of life in them after 3,000 rounds when GI gas rings would be shot.

Have them on all my rifles, they work great. They're tight at first but them break in just like the 3pc ones. Apparently they're good enough for the 'reliabilty kit' that was put out by Colt, SOPMOD or Crane (I forget which) that was mentioned in The Black Rifle II.

I like them, seem to be more durable, have them in ALL of my AR's. I know Armalite puts them in their factory rifles.

Can you elaborate a bit more, for those that don't have the book (and should GRIN).....

DPMS has free shipping on web orders.

I had a buddy put them on a SBR M-16, one range day on full auto and they were shot. Absolutely no resistance left in them. I use them on mine. But I keep regular rings just in case I need them. HTH.

I installed 1 on my RRA bolt for use in a RRA bolt carrier. It fit just as well as the original gas rings. I did not feel more or less resistance when installing the bolt.

I purchased a bolt that had the McFarland rings installed. Can't say I see a difference, but I like the all the same.
