Been shooting 16s/ARs for years, since the USMC in 87, and have been heavily reasearching the piston systems....I see a HUGE benefit to the piston sys. Been lurking and reading here for a while as well and I know this has been discussed somewhat. But Ive done and read all of the searches available (I think)...and I havent seen specific answers to these questions all in one thread.
Ive narrowed it down to the POF or LW. Both seem to be a proven system. I looking at a 16" M4 to replace my Bushy upper. My questions are:
How do they compare in regard to price, service, and warranty? Found some prices, but dont know how dated they are.
Which one is most readily available? Which one is available now for delivery? Or, how long is the wait for one?
Are there any functional/durability/reliability differences that make one sys. preferable to the other? How do they differ?
Just looking for practical facts and info I can use to compare the two and make a decision...If I missed a thread that has all of this info, could someone post a link to it...
Thanks for the inquiry.
We don't discuss other products we don't offer. This would be unfair.
We can discuss what we offer. Our gas piston upper start @ $850.00 with M4 plastic hand guards.
Our upper work with all mil-spec lowers. All of our upper come "STANDARD" with C.R.O.S.,
(Corrosion Resistant Operating System). The barrel, gas plug, gas piston, gas block & tube, bolt carrier assemble are all chrome plated. All of our gas piston upper come "STANDARD" with Rock Creek 4150 Vanadium, Heavy profiled & fluted to reduce heat and weight, 1:7 & 1:8 twist, "5R" polygonal barrels, chrome plated with extended M4 feed ramp barrel extension. Vortec flash hiders are "STANDARD" on all gas piston uppers with Predator rails.
The gas piston weapon system allow the weapon system to run COOLER and CLEANER.
The biggest benefit is eliminating the heat and carbon from the bolt carrier assemble / upper receiver. We also help to eliminate heat with our over sized barrel nut on the Predator rail system. our barel nut provides strenght and rigidity and works as a heat sink to reduce the heat at the chamber.
Our lead time is about 6 weeks. We offer a thirty day return policy. We will refund your money if your not satisfied less shipping cost. Let us know if we can assist your needs.
