Adams Arms

Postby SWAMPHUNTER45 » Wed Jul 30, 2014 9:59 pm

Jason Adams designed a retro fit gas piston system to adapt to the AR15 and M16 platform. If you have never seen this system or shot one of the Adams rifles they are an incredible engineering design. So fuzking simple that it works!

Any questions shoot me a PM

Seems like for that money in an upper you could get a low round count SR556. And the review said he had 15,000 rds between 3 uppers which doesn't speak much to the durability, not yet anyways. Not that they won't last but I'd bet my Colt in boot camp had twice that through it by itself and together it and I shot 245 out of 250. It looks like they addressed most concerns with their modified bolt design which I really liked. In the end, for me, when interchangability goes out the window so does my interest in the AR platform. My personal green label Colt is on its 2nd barrel and I still don't really know if I like it more than my AK (my piston gun of choice).

Yep tuff to beat an old AK but I can't endorse Ruger on the 556. They turn off support and it being a unicorn of parts your gonna be an orphan. After they left me out with my 44 carbine I am careful with them. I have been to the Adams factory and can tell you that the military is all over this at he moment. A lot of T&E being done and changes were made to metal formulations. I was against the system at first until I started shooting it and it is catching on fast in the Class 3 circle.

If you ever wanted the chance to get a new AR piston system for under a $1,000 made in Florida Adams is the gun. The other huge advantage is it s lite and will shoot dry so powder sand is not a problem.

PS: CORE 15 aka GTO their top of the line guns are using the Adams system as are Smith & Wesson and several other big companies. Adams had to sue Sig fyi because they tried some funny business. Bet he is glad he had a solid patent.

I have a gun that I built with his system and it performs flawlessly. It also has a lifetime warranty. That in its self speaks greatly. I have the competition 16" 1 in 8 twist. Well worth the money if you shoot thousands and thousands of rounds. If you are just gonna soot occasionally get a spikes.

Piston guns are super but the old direct impingement design is plenty good enough for 99% of the situations anyone is likely to encounter. That being said an H&K 416 in 6.5 Grendel would be the best combo for probably the next 30 years for military applications.

I have carried a HK416 and own a Sig556 both fantastic systems. The Adams system on the M4 ads minimal weight maybe an ounce as opposed to pounds. The price of the Adams gun is a deal I had to share. I don't work for them but think they are a great American company employing Floridians and deserve support.

The HK416 was a Gov. gun not for sale, my 556 was around $1,400 but just two weeks ago I bought two Adams carbines and was able to get them on a "blem"special @ $599 each. They were flawless and new in the box. A new piston gun with a full warranty and a VooDoo 1-7 chrome barrel for $599 is the best deal in America. Hell you can't buy a used one for that money!

PS:

If you run a suppressor on an AR that is really where the Adams piston system shows you it's capability. Nothing in the upper all the carbon and fouling is vented away and the gun keeps running cool and clean. When you get one keep it wet it takes about 250 rounds to get it broken in real good and their may be some lite wear on the left side of the upper. All normal!!!!!!!!
