Adams Arms ARs

Anyone have an opinion on Adams Arms AR rifles? Are they any good and is their gas-piston system reliable? Buds Gun Shop is running a special on their base model for $629 and I might get one just to get one at that price.

I have seen in my reading that their piston system is very reliable and is extremely clean and requires less maintenance per-say. I know of a few people converting their rifles with their piston system.

I have an AR I converted to their piston setup. While there is little to no tangible benefit of the piston system, its just kinda neat. It weighs more and recoils more than a DI rifle. Bottom line: Dont buy one thinking that its "better" than a direct impingement rifle. Its just different.

I don't have one but all the reviews I have read are favorable. As stated above I don't think there is any major benefit unless you hate cleaning

I'd buy one for one simple reason: the price.
