Is this upper a meme?

Would any of you anons rely on pic related on your main HD rifle? It’s impossible to sift through the paid advertisement “reviews” on youtube and I don’t want to spend $550 and be disappointed when I could have spent a little more for a decent DI upper.

    Nah its a great upper, Wish they looked more close to the legit T91 uppers but still a solid product. Havent shot mine in about 5 years since I got a T65 kit from HKParts however

      Was is reliable when you shot it? Does it feel more like a mid length or carbine length DI upper? I’ve really on heard good things about it, and I think it looks cool

        It shot great, worked every time. Feels like a front heavy carbine

          honestly I really liked the one I used. they dont gum up and worked when I needed it to.

          Thanks fellas

          They seem cool, but I'd rather buy the 12" version for home defense. Which upper would you buy if you got a DI instead?

          Waiting for BCM to restock and getting antsy. I’m graduating from a problematic PSA upper/Anderson lower build. I believe I have tracked the issue down to the lower. But once you have repeated malfunctions you just lose trust in the rifle. I will have to spend hundreds in 5.56 to regain trust in my current build.

          I may go the 12.5” route, hadn’t decided yet if I wanted to a) p&w a 14.5”, b) sbr either the 14.5” or 12.5”, or c) run a brace (or d) the third column option)

            Whoops looks like it’s a 12” not 12.5”

            I think officially it's 12.5" but whatever. I'd rather go with that than the 14.5" p&w because I'd like to use my own flash hider/silencer mount and braces are back on the table now.

            I bought a 12.5 when they were first released. Works great. Can’t run a can because over gassed.

            Have you tried a flow-through can or heavier buffer+spring?

              Anon do you think you can just 'go get' a flow through can to test on your gun? I dont think theres a single person on /k/ who even HAS one

                Believe it or not there are anons on /k/ who own NFA shit. I only have an older OSS can, but there are a lot of manufacturers doing flow-through now.

      Have you tried using a 9mm can instead of a .22 caliber one?
      I used a .22 caliber suppressor on my Mini 14 and it would shoot hot gas back into my face. I bought a 9mm suppressor and tried it on there. It works great. Poor man’s flow through can!

    One of these on an Aero lower was my HD rifle in college, they’re great

    It’s neat, but parts for it aren’t the easiest to obtain. They have vented gas blocks which is nice and I’ve had no issues with a can on it

      What rail is that? I only heard there were only 'airsoft' version for the T91.

        VLTOR CASV. You can only use hand guards that mount to the upper receiver. So I would image an ARMS handguard may work too. I did have to trim it a little. Biggest issue is the barrel nut is pretty exposed and typically it’ll come into contact with a delta ring for sturdiness. , but this does not so it flexes a little

    Are there more designs similar to the T91? The toolless removable gas piston seems like a good weapons concept to copy

    I had the 16" version and it was cool as a curiosity (putting it back together after cleaning is fun) but didn't make much sense over a DI upper. It had a little more recoil, and was a little heavier. But the main drawback for me was replacement parts. I could get a new BCG for a DI AR very easily, but the BCG for this upper is proprietary. I'm sure other parts are, too. Handguards for sure. I do like the 14.5 barrel length though, ultimately settled for a DI upper with a 14.5" pinned and welded barrel.

    These uppers are 'neat' but don't really bring anything to the table over DI and are fairly limited in what you can do to them. I've worked on 4 over the years to put the milspec FSBs and flash hiders on and various other things and I've seen a long list of problems they had from the factory. Misaligned barrels, headspace too tight, receiver extensions coming loose, canted FSB, gas block not aligned with port, varying port sizes. The Taiwanese lower parts that are sold have had quality issues as well. Mine also has a fairly nasty recoil impulse for a 14.5 556. None of them have printed better than 3 moa for me. I don't believe the piston design solves any problems I care about. It does look cool though, and the piston design is very smart.

      They seemed to be better years ago, lots of reports of shitty QC recently. This is really a dumb idea if you want a dead reliable upper. Just get a brownels block II or block III.

      Too bad.
      I kinda wanted one with an ace fixed stock just to have something different. License free FNC kinda aesthetic

      You can use them to make the "416" we have at home.

      is there a regular AR15 handguard like that one?

      no. the bolt carrier is just like an AR/416 and it uses a regular buffer system

    They make a nice Quad rail for it if that's your speed, I'd get the 12.5 over the 14.5 tho.

    No, it's a great upper, there's a reason it's called the "Mpoor16", it's a stupid durable and reliable piston upper.
