IMO a dissy is not just cosmetic. to have the "dissipation" the gas system should be rifle lenght.
not just be a dissy-look for the range buddies

real dissys can be problematic, not enough dwell time. mock dissys have that problem sovled. IMHO its gotta work gud, then look gud.

Read the fine print. Those are "mock" dissipators. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Dude I'm excited. Will be my 4th, and probably final, build. I've wanted a dissy for a long time. I just love the way they look. Of course it has to function properly too. Its a PSA so I have nothing but confidence. I did a good amount of research before making this thread. I wanted to make my current upper into a dissy upper, just wasn't sure if it was possible. Dumb luck really that PSA put them back up on their site right when I made this thread. I'll post pics once I get it. It's going on a Spike's Punisher lower.

I really liked mine before the boating accident. I had a carbine length gas system.

I'm never taking my guns on a boat. Heard to many horror stories on this site about boating accidents.
