Im looking buy a gas piston AR and need some advice--So, I came to the best place on the web. Here’s what I found:

Robinson Armament XCR - who knows when they will actually ship! New, unproven design with only one company supplying parts. Heard some bad things about their customer service and accuracy on some of their other guns

ZM - previously owned a ZM and loved it. They have a totally new design now. I don’t know if they are as good as the old.

Leitner Wise - heard good things but they only have one design on their web page. Don’t see that mounting a forward pistol grip is possible. Called for info and just got an answering machine and never got called back. Sign of bad customer support?

DSA – GTC looks good but I know nothing about DSA. They any good?

ameetecarms.... same.. never heard of them

POF – broadest range of product.. heard both good and bad things about them.

Anyone know the real scoop on these companies and their products?

Did I miss any company? Ideas? Suggestions?

I own the DSA GTC ZM4, which is just a POF on a DSA lower. I recommend it without reservation. I get decent groups with it using Wolf 55gr. No scrubbing the bolt after shooting with Wolf (or any other ammo) either. It has three additional parts; op rod, gas piston, gas plug. You can buy these separately as backup parts, which I am about to do. All lower receiver parts and springs are standard, so that argument is a straw man.

David...why not try the Letiner-Wise and POF forums in the Industry section.

Or come see them at SHOT.

thanks guys... I didnt know they were other sections I will look for them
thanks for the pics of the LW

The only rifle and uppers in their site do not look like that so I did not realize they were available

I will be at SHOT but with my lack of knowledge between the companies, It hard to make a decision by just handling them.

I think its between POF and LW?? Any reliability or customer support issues?
