Default American Tactical Gas Piston AR15 Atlantic Firearms

Ok, So now Im looking at ARs and after my excellent experance with Atlantic thats where I plan to go back to. I dont want so spend more than $900. I like the idea of the gas pistol and also the overall features and look of this rifle. So what does everything think?

Got specs? You knew that was coming, right?

Being the ass some seem to think I am as of late I'll speak on this w/o knowing specs. Q you're just to damn nice

Looks like something I wouldn't want. Looks like the best thing about it is the possible Magpul grip. What's up w/ the muzzle device? I'm always a little stand off-ish when they don't include specs in a description.

I tried but couldn't find anything on American Tactical.

I tend to agree with you MJ, I am a nice guy!

Seriously, I agree, even without specs it doesn't look like a quality rifle. A lot of things in the picture that I don't care for and a quick google search didn't turn up much except piston conversion kits which makes me think this is a cheap rifle with a kit slapped on.

Frank, I'd say prove us wrong with links to impressive specs. I didn't bother to click on the google hits.

At the risk of agreeing with someone, which I haven't done to much of late, Q is right. Piston system looks like Adams Arms kit or something similar.

Per the description on Atlantic it is an Adams Arms kit.

Thought it might be. I just didn't take time to google the sight. Might be an ok rifle, but the pistons don't impress me as much as they use to. After having built a few rifles, I have come to the conclusion that most of the bad AR's/M16's were built by someone who didn't give a f*** , which p***es people off and prejudices them against DI's altogether. Just looking at the rifle, it looks like another A3 knockoff someone slapped a piston on to give the appearance of reliability.

Another piston gun. Great. Nope, Adams Arms. See the rest of the thread.

I own a Huldra piston and I see some differences between mine and the picture above. My Huldra's gas block is pinned and has a standard flash hider.

But I also shoot a DPMS DI, so...
