I would lean toward a piston system

i have a stag arms 15L and i love it, only thing is bolt carrier and bolt are more expensive, and you cant put on any barrel you want.

I haven't experienced any problems with a box stock upper. If, by chance, I ever get sprayed, I might install a gas-buster charging handle on the chance that it will prevent a second facefull.

How about a PWS piston conversion for a Lefty upper..?

I've never used a gasbuster as I'm a lefty.  I'm guessing since it looks like it diverts gas out to the right, that as a lefty the gas would spray out into your nose/face, just more on the left side that straight up.  Am I wrong here?

In the past I had a rifle that sprayed me a lot, so I just filled the gap between the CH and the upper with silicon; seals it right up.

I'm left handed and just use the ole fashion DI right handed stuff. I really think the piston arf and left handed arf are both solutions in search of problems.

When you put on a suppressor you really notice the gas.
