spencer cupit: how about quality of steel used in each? BCG steel, barrel life? any known
isues with each? good vid , ad more ;)
mushedroom: seems the lwrc piston system is a bit more complex versus lmt's easy one
piece install... thanks for this. i'm about to purchase my upper and this
Starlin Sims: Love the demo, but 2100 hundred and up is way out of my price range and
ability. I choose the 1100 to 1300 price range for AR's. If you can afford
it, both will be fine rifle's for your life time.
lamarbrog: LMT upper is milled from a forging, not billet.
pete locker: POF USA ! no springs , or gas rings in the piston op rod set up ...simply
the best !
Bill W: If I bought the LMT I would get the bolt nickel boron or NP3 finished
Adam Gordon: Are the lwrc and lmt bolt carriers interchangeable. I like the nickel boron
bolt carrier better? Thank you.
hardman476: where i'm from we can only have ar-15's with no gas system (straight pull
only ) due to stupid laws! sick a side charger on the bolt and can still
get a decent rate of fire though
47SRT: I have owned both. I previously owned a LMT. I had no problems when I was
shooting it but after about 300 rds the bolt would not manually cycle to
the rear. This obviously was not a good thing when you had a live round in
the chamber and needed to unload the rifle. Called LMT and was told that
is pretty much how piston guns are, your going to have carrier tilt. They
did say if you continue to have problems call us back and we will see what
we can do. Sold the lemon at a guns show and started to look for another
piston gun. I bought a Sig 516 and still have it. The 516 runs great and
will cycle any ammo through it, even rusty surplus Russian ammo. It is a
bit heavy and the gas block is chunky. I recently purchased a LWRC
IC-SPR. I only have a 200 rds in it but have had not problems.
DIESELPOWERSTROKE: LMT FOR ME.
thegr8pulido: LWRC puts those gas rings there because they feel like they're more durable
than spring loading the bolt(as H&K does,) which is done to try to
compensate for the complete loss of gas pressure originally pushing the
bolt forward in the AR-15 on unlock.
LMT ignores this because they can get away with it, and that's possibly why
you don't see them getting big contracts for their piston guns LWRC
they do exist: LMT is a slick system. I like PWS's piston system a bit better, but the
overall package the LMT offers is second to none. Imo DI is the way to go
with an AR-15 anyway. AR-10 and I'm considering a piston a bit more.
spoke1183: get Ak 47 no tools need 100% reliable.
jack hu: Great Video man! Let's see new LMT rail system
Lummox Lewis: I would ride LMT, myself
TheWms007: regarding the LMT 12.5 piston setup, do your hands get hot from the gas
escaping the piston? My hand is usually wrapped around the end of the rail
and would be up against the piston, not on it but right up to it. Thanks!
MakingMasterClass: Amazing video, thanks.
TheTrizec: Well done very detailed....I love my LMT MRP, but those conversion kits and
barrels don't come cheap, great customer service. -Z
Kyle Rice: Question, can you use ANY barrel with the LMT or does it require a
modernpawn: LWRC is a a little bit more, but will go out on a limb and say its worth
spending the extra on a LWRC.
Bruce Mendoza: At super great observer is Feinstein was to watch this she would totally
say some stupid crap as in piston systems are the new devils technology in
AR's we must ban them from our military shoulders as well lmmfao
mastalee: i like the idea of switching out the barrel . iwhat is the cost of the
barrels itself? and after switching out the barrel does it hold zero? and
the last question are lmt barrels chrome lined or nitrated treated?
thor595: Good videos guys. Clear and concise.
rhino ranch: Fantastic video with incredibly detailed review of piston systems. I am
guessing that you are an advanced armorer. Please keep up the great videos!
modernpawn: Thanks for the kind words. Stay tuned for an AWESOME vid on the NEW LWRC
6.8 rifle. Helicopters, live fire on pigs, experimental ammo... its going
to be epic.
they do exist: What two 5.56/.223's and two .308's would you suggest at $2,500 or less per
firearm? You are far more knowledgable than I am on the subject and want to
research prior to buying. Thanks.
modernpawn: They get like $700 for a bolt and a barrel combo. After switching the
barrels the zero will be sorta close, but you will have to double
check/adjust. They do chrome lined barrels and stainless steel 'DMR' style
modernpawn: I have not seen anything point to one or the other as more accurate, lots
of variables that determine accuracy and think di vs gp is low on the list.
I am pretty sure the LMT MRP upper systems are convertible. The 556 is
definitely convertible. I think the 308 is. Thanks for watching.
modernpawn: Never had them come close to coming loose. Once properly torqued, they seem
to be rock solid.
blink148: Awesome video. Besides the gas rings on the LMT, I'm pretty much convinced
cabbynate: Mine is perfectly straight. Look at the strike face on your bolt carrier.
Is it hitting the face square? If it is your in good shape. If it's a tiny
bit off I would get it back to LMT. They will get you a new one..
Bruce Mendoza: That was one awesome video. So in theory is the LMT less expensive then
David Meaney: great tutorial. ..Most understand the basics on DI Vs Piston. Your
explanation was very detailed.. Great stuff. I'm a new sub for you. Thank
thegr8pulido: Stoner's turning in his grave at dem nasty ass pistons.
Franco Velasquez: You should make more videos using both these AR's
adra774: Disclaimer: I own an LWRC SPR so I am obviously a little biased as I
absolutely love it. You didn't mention that the LWRC bolt-carrier group is
coated in nickel boron vs LMT, nice advantage. The Ni-Corr coated barrel is
also a plus. Also many will say that the short stroke piston is a little
better due to the op rod being shorter than the longer rod LMT uses as
there is less flex. I like the barrel change capability LMT has, but would
never really see myself using that. Both are awesome guns!
bendelgado3: Damn, You're more an Engineer than I am. Well done!! I just can't help but
wonder: why not use a CAMLOK system or preset, pre-torqued locking system
for the barrel exchange just to make it combat effective say you're doing
PSD work early and a little DMR work in the afternoon or door to door
raids. The concept is great but a lot of people are not going to carry
torque wrenches, I never had at the most my Gerber 600 and a MT Scarab
(Bayonets suck at cutting) Great Video once again, Thanks
Loris Tyrell: Great video! How does the LWRC compact stock compare to the LMT sopmod. The
lwrc looks alot like the sopmod, but shorter and lighter. Any thoughts?
Jerry F: Great video to the point and very informative. Thanks.
cuong hoang: Does your shop have a 300blk barrel for this LMT? I have the LMT Piston
16in and would love to have the 300 barrel
Kyle Rice: I'm looking at the LMT. It's quite beautiful. I'm a sucker for monolithic
Balisong005: Thaks for the reply. really helped.
Balisong005: so, if a guy was up in the air which one would you put in your safe? a
loaded question for sure. quality, reliability and just good old fashioned
cool factor. thanks.
Bama Prepper: Total B.S. !
Balisong005: So here is the question.... A 16,1 in barrel or the pinned 14.7 barrel. As
always thanks for the great vids. Subbed.
GUNS R FUN: I'm the one who called your store to thank you for making this video.
Lummox Lewis: you freakin rock
bill burr: do you think theres any chance of those barrel bolts on the LMT working
them selves loose while your firing the rifle?
modernpawn: Thanks for encouragement.
