Default adams arms piston conversion

Installed one on a new AR build, rather interesting design and operates so much smoother. no debris or powder getting to the gas tube or bolt. It is self cleaning setup. rather complicated to get right setup, but tech support was fantastic. jacob at adams arms was very helpful. Its getting better...can shoot cast bullets, lubed sized and gas checked. I got a break on cost being I am ffl gunsmith. got mine from CDNN for a very good price. its a very good setup with out worrying about stuff getting in and stopping the action from doing what it's designed to do.

here it is...

So you prefer piston over di? Any change in accuracy?
