View Full Version : Who makes or can make a quality 14.5" Piston upper?

I got a new build in progress here. I was originally going to use a 14.5" BCM upper, but found out the combo I wanted would most likely not be stocked again as the rail has been discontinued besides small one off batches.

I started looking into the possibility of getting a piston upper, as all of my AR variant rifles are DI currently. I have basically decided I will go with an Addax MK-3 GPU upper with a 14.5" barrel. Now I see on their website they are releasing a new set of uppers in September(ish) with their own piston system, not the PWS long stroke system they currently offer. So I figure I will wait for those to come out before deciding.

In the mean time, I have no problems looking at uppers from other top quality manufacturers. I am looking for a top tier 14.5" PISTON upper. Anyone got any good ideas for me? :D

Addax tactical, they just made me a 14.5 in 6.8 and it is flawless.

Anyone here chopped down a 16" LMT piston upper to 14.5?

I still havnt ventured into piston ARs yet. I figured I'd wait for my SCAR before I pick up an Addax.
