DEGuns Carries Adams Arms AR-15s

DEGuns supplies AR-15s from Adams Arms because it is a high-quality firearm that performs well in brutal conditions. Gun reviewers love Adams Arms AR-15 because they are tough beyond belief, accurate, and deliver the firepower that made the AR-15 a standard. Adams arms is known for encouraging gun reviewers to do their best to break the gun under real-world conditions. For example, one reviewer did absolutely everything he could think of to get the gas system on the AR-15 to choke, but was unable to do so.

The typical AR-15 gas system is designed with a gas tube that feeds directly into a piston in the bolt carrier group. This design is effective, but you have to be careful about keeping it clean. Otherwise, the gun can jam and malfunction

However, the Adams Arms AR-15 designed its piston to avoid that drawback. The gas is stored in a small chamber, and a piston is used to transfer the energy to the bolt carrier group. This results in a gun that stays clean even after thousands of rounds have been discharged. There is a specific chamber designed to capture gasses. The concept is to bring some of the reliability that made the AK-47 a global standby with the accuracy and power of the AR-15.

Adams Arms makes use of a “short stroke” piston which is similar to the SKS and M1 carbine. The result of this is that there is a short period of time during which the bolt carrier is being acted on prior to the physics of the shot carrying the gun through the rest of the reloading cycle. The regulator offers normal and suppressed settings for the gas system.

The Adams Arms AR-15 is a lightweight, ergonomic gun which makes it a good choice for a gun that must be carried on long hunting trips. This point also helps you stay mobile in a self-defense situation.
