My “go-to” AR-15 upper is an Adams Arms piston piece, and not even one of their fancy ones. Just a Magpul MOE handguard and no other frills or add-ons of which to speak. I’ve had great success with the reliability and durability of the system — with good accuracy to boot — so I was happy to see them at Media Day to find out what’s new. The piston .308 felt great, and the kidney-shaped ejector is a novel idea. There’s one item I’m particularly interested in, but what’s this about GLOCK parts?. . .
VooDoo Innovations is closely related to Adams Arms (not sure if they’re the same company, if VI is a subsidiary of AA, etc), so I’m including the following here:
What you see above is also all of the information I have about what might be happening here. I’m thinking VooDoo is planning to release its own GLOCK slide like PWS recently did? Maybe barrels?
The product I may be picking up for myself is AA’s new XLP Gas Block & Selector, which is a low profile option that fits under most standard handguards. Not only does that mean I could easily swap out that MOE piece for whatever suits my fancy, but that I can now run an extended handguard since the gas selector is adjustable from the front and even comes with an extension tool to reach down under your handguard for doing so. Additionally, it’s 5-way adjustable (100%, 75%, 50%, 25%, and 0%) whereas the standard gas block is 3-way (standard, suppressed, off). Although, as mentioned, the current system has been serving me very well for a few years, that doesn’t mean it can’t get even better.
