Why do ARfags want direct impingement over a piston setup, assuming the piston setup is quality.

Do ARfags just enjoy eating where they shit? Are these the type of people who build kitchens in their bathrooms?

So you're saying most ARfags would prefer a piston?

From what I've learned most would prefer direct impingement.
>>
>>28617282
Other than the shitty anology, there is nothing wrong with DI. It can be just as reliable as any other setup as long as the recoil spring is strong enough to push through the carbon buildup.

"shitting where it eats" is not valid since firearms can't get diseases or infections.

Because the AR is not set up for a piston.
No rails to ride on.

AR is more reliable than you think.
>>
>>28617295
I know I made this thread with a negative tone, but I'm looking for a confirmation of if AR owners prefer piston or direct impingement.

I've heard some companies mess up on the piston (Eugene stoner himself couldn't get the piston system to work), so let's assume a quality piston.

>>28617337
Oh shut up you know what I mean, a piston system puts the carbon buildup above the end of the barrel instead of in the receiver.

So it separates your trash.
>>
>>28617332
The AR bolt carrier is round. The receiver extension is round. With DI, the force goes straight back, and the BCG just slides back.

With a piston, the force is applied differently to the BCG. With rails to ride on, the bolt will only be able to go straight back, not bind up (carrier tilt)

Most carbon build up comes in through the bore.
>>
>>28617346
the DI system actually takes the trash out of the gun instead of just cramming it somewhere else inside the gun.

do you think those holes on the BCG at the ejection port were just for looks?
>>
>>28617352
Primary weapons systems AR15's claim their system eliminates the possibility of bolt carrier tilt in their piston AR's...

carrier tilt is a meme or for shitty ARs.
I've seen 416s that have run more than 100k rounds without any tilt wear in the buffer or receiver

Have you ever looked at the bolt and bolt carrier of a piston rifle, say an SKS after shooting ~150 rounds out of it? Its fucking filthy.

Anecdotal, but guns get dirty no matter how they operate.
>>
>>28617365
>honestly thinking bcg ports are more effective than pistons


holy shit nigger there's still an abnormal build up in the receiver you fucking retard
>>
>>28617371
There are ways of mitigating carrier tilt.

But your still going to have a less accurate rifle.
And the carrier will still tilt some, just not bind up on anything. This will lead to different wear patterns, not that this is likely to cause premature failure.

If the DI system was so bad, how come essentially the entire world has adopted it?

piston AR and DI AR have the same amount of build up in the reciever you stupid cunt.

Anyone defending DI is just trying to defend the AR itself.
It was a stupid idea to have the gases and all that bullshit go directly into the chamber and bolt carrier group.
A piston obviously would make for a more reliable weapon, which is why they make piston ARs now.
>>28617319

>>28617387
>Have you ever looked at the bolt and bolt carrier of a piston rifle
The point of the piston is to keep that shit out of your bolt/chamber. It's much easier to clean the piston area on an AK/SKS than it is the gas tube/rest of DI system in an AR, not to mention it doesn't shit directly on your BCG on top of it.

Not trying to start an AK vs AR, but the piston system is far superior, and will keep your weapon running longer when it counts.
If you want prescison/ergonomics, get an AR. If you want reliability, get an AK.

DI uses gas to push against the bolt carrier. Think Hakim, MAS, Ljungmann.
The AR uses the gas to push against an internal piston. It is in no way a DI system.

ALL semi autos get crud in the chambers since the action opening draws crud out of the barrel and into the chamber area.

Piston >>> DI

But while DI stays true to the original model, times change, Eugene Stoner wasn't the worlds savior. He even tried to get Pistons to work, but he failed.
>>
>>28617282
The AR-15 doesn't use true DI, the BCG acts like its own pseudo-piston. Also, piston AR's use a gas system the upper and BCG were never designed for, which causes even more carrier tilt than carbine length gas systems, which in turn can lead to a shorter service life. If you want a short or long stroke piston, don't buy an AR.

Piston on AR does nothing to fix its main problems:

It's how the rifle was originally designed, deviating from that will inevitably lead to unintended consequences.

Carrier tilt is the most notable of these.

DI gives a more gradual recoil impulse which increases shooting endurance for smaller shooters, youths, and women.

DI is quieter in piston guns if you can tolerate the suppressor gas coming past the bolt because of a phenomena called "piston pop"

DI guns are lighter because they don't have a piston weighing them down.

There are many more reasons than this, but these are the ones which clinch the argument for me and sway me in favor of DI.

DI is inherently more accurate, and recoil can be lighter. DI isn't nearly as meme dirty as people think it is.

If you want a piston AR, invest in one of the civvie spec AR18 projects.

I've had more piston guns jam on me than DI guns. Though I am looking mostly at m249 versus m16.
