The new Addax ATAC-GPU (Advanced Tactical AR Carbine Gas Piston Upper).

We just call it the ATAC.

Addax Tactical specializes in building AR Gas Piston Uppers, and Customized AR Gas Piston Uppers utilizing the Outstanding piston systems from PWS.
We are very excited to introduce our latest Gas Piston Upper, the ATAC to you.

This new Piston System used in the Addax ATAC is based on the PWS Diablo, and has been designed to work in a Carbine Configuration.

We have been working closely with PWS, and Addax Tactical has a semi-exclusive with PWS on this new Piston System, which allows us to build a variety of different models to fulfill many of our customers needs and requirements, including model in various calibers and barrels lengths including 5.56 Nato, 6.5 Grendel, 6.8 SPCII, and in the future 5.45x39 and 7.62x39 (when quality barrels and bolts become available).

Planned Release: (Currently Shipping our first set of orders).

Average ETA is normally 3-6 weeks (depending on the model-configuration), and our website states the typical shipment times.

Retail Price Starting at $1399

The Mk-1 and Mk-1A ATAC's features the Daniel Defense, Cold Hammer Forged 5.56 Military Spec Chrome Lined 16" barrels, FSC Bulldog compensators (based on the PWS FSC 556 Compensator), and there are other muzzle attachment options, rail accessory options, bolt carrier options, VLTOR MUR 1A OPTION, and Cerakote opitons.

The ATAC is a Dedicated AR Gas Piston Upper, that utilizes a specially designed long stroke piston system, for enhanced dwell time and lower recoil, and the piston system does not require different gas adjustments for using different types of ammunition loads or when using a sound suppressor.

The ATAC is a Dedicated Gas Piston Upper that is Extremely Reliable, Virtually Maintenance Free, Simple, Durable, and Refined.

It is like having an AK on top of an AR, while retaining AR Accuracy and AR Ergonomics.

The new ATAC can be serviced by Law Enforcement and Military Armorers if necessary, and the rail system is just like the PWS Diablo, where there are 4 seperate rail panels for ease of disassembly and replacement.

The gas block is pinned to the barrel (just like a standard AR Front Sight Post).

The Bolts are Military Spec, and the 5.56 bolts are MP tested by the lots, so some might not be marked MP.

The Bolt Carriers are available in either Semi Auto or Full Auto

The upper receivers will be Mil-Spec 7075 T-6, and the Vltor MUR upper will be available as an option.

We currently have several units being field tested by members of the military and law enforcement communities.

We will have several different models of the ATAC GPU including the "Operator", and Zombie Killer (limited edition), which will be equipped with special optics, and other options.

We are also looking into the possibilities of introducing a .308 version in the future.

Hey there, I read on the site that it says it's based on the diablo system, don't know much about hte differences in the gpus so i was wondering how does this differ from the other gpus that you are offering? thanks.

Nice! I was wonder why nobody would develop a long-stroke system.

I need a review sample to play with.

It takes time and a lot of $$$ to develop.

This is a project that we have been working on with PWS for just about 1 year.

After several design versions and a few different test models/prototypes, we have what is going to be the best Gas Piston Upper on the market, and this is not marketing hype.

Our sample of testers which included Law Enforcement and Military Personnel, are just totally blown away by the operation, and virtual lack of hard recoil, and the accuracy results the test uppers have been turning out, is just WOW!

The new piston system is a specially designed and engineered self regulating long stroke piston system, that is essentially an AK, with all the refinements of an AR. This is a more Mil-Spec GPU, where the gas block is pinned to the barrel, there is not removable piston tube or parts, and the piston and op-rod/bolt carrier is all one piece (the op-rod-piston bolt on to a standard AR bolt carrier, and the bolt has been specially designed to enhance bolt unlock and lock timing.

Much softer in line recoil and reduced muzzle rise (using only an A2 flash hider), and we have been achieving consistent 1" groups at 100 yards with Mil-Spec Chrome Lined barrels.

This system will run thousands of rounds with only requiring very little maintenance, which is extremely easy and takes only minutes.

I am planning on building the first production batch in approx. 45-60 days.

What we plan on doing is building a run of 15-20 at a time and selling them as they become available.

We are also going to have several exclusive dealers that will be selling the ATAC GPU, and we will notify everyone once we ship their uppers to them.

As soon as we are ready to take orders, we will notify everyone on the forums.

Thanks,
Chris

I am working up the configuration on this model.

It will include a Cold Hammer Forged Barrel for longer barrel life (hence you can shoot more zombies)..;)

i have a sundevil lower i was going to use for a dedicated G.P. build but wanted to use a stripped sundevil upper to match the lower. can you build one of these uppers for me, using a sun devil upper as the basis for the build?

Sorry, but no.

Since this is a dedicated built gas piston upper, we use specific upper receivers built to our specs.

We will have the Vltor MUR option available.

Dear God!

If I had a first born male child, I'd sell him into slavery as a pool boy at Michael Jackson's house to get my hands on one of these uppers over here.

Great work Addax.

Not being an AR guy myself, but being very interested in GPUs...does a GPU still require the spring in the butt of the AR? I really hate that "boiiing" sound and is the biggest detractor for me with ARs... However, I do like gas piston operated firearms...and is why I love my sig556 and my AKs.. thanks for any input...

We decided to stick with the contemporary AR set up, using the buffer and buffer spring, since this upper will be used by many in full auto (law enforcement, military etc.) and we needed to have this upper work with AR/M16/M4 lower receivers without any modifications.

When I get my 07 ffl, we will eventually work on a piston driven rifle.

I really hate that "boiiing" sound and is the biggest detractor for me with ARs...Apply a liberal amount of white lithium grease to the recoil spring. It's messy but eliminates the noise.

We are going to introduce a .308 variant as soon as we get our 07 FFL, and go into producing complete rifles.

I would venture to say this time next year is when we hope to have a .308 model.

Any idea on what platform? Existing DPMS or Armilite? Perhaps a design of your own?



That ATAC is friggen beyond cool.....wow still looking for words to express the joy.:D

Not sure yet.

We are open to input from the customers to see which platform is more ideal and popular.

Yes, the ATAC is awsome... :)

Chris, I would gladly test the DPMS version you come out with ;) or Armalite. Whatever comes first :jump:


BTW, I vote for you guys going with the DPMS pattern. Your rifles sure would look nice with some SR-25 PMAGs in em :thumbsup:

Are these new ATAC upper basically the same as the Diablo except in fullsize? Becus it looks that way and it is such a great design. Very simple to clean. I shot about 80rnds from my Diablo and it didnt even look like i shot it, it was soo clean.. I love that!

Yes, the new ATAC is designed based on the Diablo, but with some different design and operational features that allows it to work in a Carbine configuration.

Dear Addax,

I see your regular GPUs have a very large gas block that standard quad rails can not extend pass except for the DD FSPs. Can the ATAC GPUs be used with other forearms? Also can the Atac be built with a side charging handle and heavy barrel vs the m4 profile?

The ATAC cannot be used with other forearms.

The ATAC utilizes a specially designed quad rail system that cannot be altered at this time.

We are currently looking into a possible side charger option, but we need to make sure that the internal receiver dimensions will work with the ATAC piston syste.

Yes, we can built an ATAC with a Hbar if you prefer that kind of barrel, but it has to be a Carbine barrel.

Thank you,
Chris

I dont like the sound either:( but I have determined that the LMT Sopmod is pretty good at quieting the noise heard. I have tried other stocks and they seems alot louder than my LMT.. Just a suggestion!
