Piston vs DI Dilemma: "The AR-15 Gas Choice" by Nutnfancy

Direct gas impingement AR-15s suck. Wait a minute, maybe that's piston driven AR-15s suck. Now that I have your attention I'll say they're both good and each has its own pluses and minuses that need your consideration. Long proven in many battles, the DI (direct impingement) M4/M16/AR-15 series are very reliable if maintained and lubricated properly. If it were not so it never would have lasted this long in US military service and many of the "it's broke, its needs replacing now" arguments ring hollow with me. That's not to say it cant have its problems and is failure-free. In the DI design by Eugene Stoner, the introduction of cyclic gas into the receiver makes things dirty and heats up critical components. That heat can accelerate wear and possible parts failure in extended full auto fire and makes cleaning a chore. Also running shorter barrel lengths on a DI gun is taxing to the system and it often needs heavier buffer, spring, and maybe even port adjustments to ensure reliability. Count on some tweaking. Also running a suppressor off a DI gun can cause debris and powder to be blown back into the users face, even with charging handles that incorporate deflection channels. The current piston AR-15s, like the Ruger SR-556 shown, promise to cure many of these problems. They transfer the heat and dirtiness up front at the regulator/piston mechanism, keeping the bolt cooler and cleaner. From my experience at this point, piston ARs will foul in the piston/regulator area and require similar cleaning to a DI gun in this area. But they function consistently with or without short barrels and/or suppressors and promise longer intervals without lubrication or service. But it's too early to tell if they are indeed the superior system. Some early designs have shown design weakness like spring failures in the piston transfer mechanism after high round counts. Other show carrier tilt resulting in shaving of the buffer tube. But the designs are being perfected and have measurable benefits in some POUs. So far however in most like comparisons, most have not been able to surpass the DI guns in terms of light weight. As a result, most DI guns usually have a faster swing and more manageable carry weight when similarly equipped. This leads to better mobility. In POUs requiring only semi-automatic and unsuppressed fire, maybe the DI is still the best choice and I predict it will remain popular and will never go away. If the user can take the added weight of a piston driven AR-15 then many will enjoy the cleaner bolt, promise of better durability, and taking the heat out of the receiver. But if weight and perhaps accuracy is your most critical attribute, a quality made DI AR-15 will still serve you well. //////////////////// Music: From artists Torley Wong and Jimmy G.

We look at the two popular .22lr versions of the AR-15 The Smith & Wesson M&P 15-22 is a well made almost all polymer AR15 style rifle that can use most AR accessories like grips, lights, stocks, slings, etc The Colt .22lr M4 Tactical Rifle is made from alloy so it weighs a bit more and feels more like a standard AR15 The Colt version looks more like a typical AR15 AR15 Buyers Guide http://AR15buyersguide.com GunWebsites.com http://www.GunWebsites.com Rifle Buyers Guide http://www.RifleBuyersGuide.net Gun Websites Gear; http://www.Gear-Whore.com Gun Websites Blog: http://www.GunWebsites.net Gun Websites Chat: http://www.GunWebsites.net/chat Find us on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/GunWebsites Find us on Twitter: http://twitter.com/#!/GunWebsites

Nutnfancy SHOT Show 2011: Kel-Tec Moves To World Domination

You might find some good laughs and perhaps some fun in this Nutnfancy Kel-Tec 20111 product update. But as you've come to expect, I stay on target and hit the details like no other. The good, the bad, and the outstanding high points of Kel-Tec are discussed here. Chad from Kel-Tec is especially cool and turns out to be another Gold Star host for TNP. He rolls in most excellent fashion with the Nutnfancy style as we delve into yet more Kel-Tec impressive innovation. Namely their 26? 12 gauge bullpup shotgun that will carry 14+1 rounds. Weighing in at a respectable 6.9 lbs, the Kel-Tec KSG-12 seems compact, fast, and sets new standards of PUMP shotgun firepower. The innovative KSG features include on-the-fly user-selectable magazines (each holding 7 2 " rds), magazine cutoff ability for loading single rounds, plenty of railing for accessories and a VG, different colors, sling attachment points, and has screw-in cokes. If it's everything it seems to be the KSG will be another slam dunk seller for KT and the crew (and of course probably impossible to find for the next year). Also we check out the also impressive RMR-30 .22 WMG semi-auto carbine. In conversations with Kel-Tec, this is a gun I wanted them to make. It fills a distinct niche in as a lightweight, high-value survival/bug-out rifle with substantial firepower. And it uses the more-affordable and yet potent-enough .22 WMG (not the very expensive and flatlined 5.7x28mm). It seems to still be in development and expect changes in the finer details. But if it's durable and reliable, the RMR-30 stands is another trendsetter for its compactness, lightweight, versatility, and affordability. As of early 2011, I see no competitors that hold the same promise of SAWC domination and value in this POU. Yes the KSG shotgun and the RMR-30 are the darlings in 2011 but there's a lot of depth still to the Kel-Tec winning lineup. Kinda' like the still standard-setting PF-9, P-3AT, PMR-30, SU-16s, and SU-22. Most of those have send plenty of rounds downrange in The Nutnfancy Project and are proven, recommended commodities. Now if we can just get and keep the KSG and PMR/RMRs on the shelf it will be a win for all! It's not world domination but it's industry leading stuff. //////////////////// Music: Licensed to TNP from www.youtube.com/user/InSoMnIaKsTrAnCe (www.square-recordings.com)
