just joined, so i don't know if this is old info or not but i'm excited. bushmaster told me that their piston system AR's are only "weeks" from being ready and they will be available "before it gets warm(spring)", in a couple of models

Any way to confirm this?

Cost is my issue. If BM will sell the parts through dealer network, it may be a viable option. I can't seeing paying over $450 for an upper though, because the standard AR gas system aint broke.

Not necessarily.



Just like the Glock carbine wasn't there but I'm sure there's going to be one...

Watch, if they do come out with one my bet is it will be a rebranded POF. They already have connections to POF, so why not do what DSA did and put their name on it and drastically increase the pricing?

Bah! dont waste your time. IF your gonna put a rod in your AR you might as well just by the Gun you're trying so desperatly to emulate. THE AK BABY THE AK!



BTW- not all AK's are Romanian ya know! The norincos and Bulgars and Arsenal and Romarm are excellent.

I just called Bushmaster and asked if they were making a piston upper or complete rifle.
They said no.

Bryan: "Hi... I'm Joe consumer... nobody terribly important in the grand scheme of Bushmaster things. But I think I'm important enough that you should reveal some of your corporate secrets to me. So how about it... piston upper? Making one?"

Bushmaster: "No."

Bryan: "Oh ok. Well, if you say no then I guess that's it. Thanks."

Bushmaster: "[CLICK]"

Or even some staff member who has no clue what a piston upper is...

I recently e-mailed Bushmaster to ask them about making a gas-piston upper and the reply I got was that they had unvelied their own at the 06 shot show. I was told to look to the website for more infor in 6-8 weeks. That was a week ago.
