Why are you considering a gas piston - the hype or just general curiosity?

You can mod a Surefire M73 to work with one.

No worries, I was just curious and certainly not flaming you... I like the less cleaning part, but have had no issues with regular SBR/Heavy buffer setup from a reliability or accuracy standpoint and am genuinely curious.

An LEO friend has had issues with his POF upper, and a couple folks I know that tried 'early' conversion kits went back to stock eventually, which just cranks up my curiosity even more.

ACR is bada$$ :twisted:

Personally, I don't think a retrofit is hype. I believe the piston system offers some nice little perks .... like less cleaning!!!!!!

I just bought some Midwest forearms at about $150 6 months ago and Bushmaster told me their retrofit won't work with those which is a bummer. That is what prompted my question.

I might just leave my AR just the way it is since my next purchase someday will be an ACR which is a piston system standard.
