Does anyone know who's conversion this is? At $249 it might be worth trying. The Bushmaster kit is $399.

That looks like the Ares kit. I could be wrong.

Why bother adding something like that?

Do you have problems with your AR now?

I just don't get it... especially an unquantified version. It says long stroke piston, too.

Piston systems mostly suck. The best ones still have their own issues.

Do your homework. Just because HK can do it for SOCOM doesn't mean it's right for you.

That system was developed by someone on Weaponeer I believe. The difference with that system is that it is a "Low Impulse" gas piston. Suppssedly it is not as hard on the hardware as the current base of systems.
