I fully admit to being a huge fan of Adams Arms’ piston system. As far as a short stroke design goes — long stroke 4 lyfe, homie. Anyway, while Adams Arms is a relatively new company making AR-15 rifles they have rapidly expanded their product line and started branching out into just about everything. From competition rifles to super short SBR guns, they make it all. Now word comes today that they’re launching a piston-driven .308 Winchester rifle . . .
Today, Adams Arms is proud to announce the Introduction of our Revolutionary new Piston Driven Small Frame .308 Rifle! With our years research and development we’ve engineered the finest .308 to ever hit the market. Weighing in at under 8 pounds and more than 50% reciprocal to standard AR-15 components, the new Defender and Defender Enhanced rifles will be setting a new standard in the firearms industry.
This pre-order is for the limited edition run of BILLET lower receivers with serial numbers 10 through 500.
A deposit secures your billet lower and preferred serial number (if available, first come first serve). We will begin shipping the rifles in November and will be contacting each customer for their preferred configuration of each person’s custom selected serial number.

Compared to yesterday’s launch of an entry level rifle from Ruger, this makes a little more sense. Rather than “just another” AR-15, the piston-driven .308 is a rare commodity and the only options at the moment seem to be from Ruger and SIG SAUER (or H&K if you hate your bank account). A lower priced entry into a typically higher priced market is a welcome addition, and a smart move for the young company.
