I am thinking about the exact same setup.

GI. Its borderline overgassed (but never had any failures yet), I might put on a heavier buffer to be on the safe side.

No, this is one of my own creations. I got the lower from noveske and built the rifle around that.

The barrel is actually made by Mossberg. Got it new for $125.

Thanks for the reply. I was considering on the Noveske 10.5 piston with the stwich block, but I would save about a grand if I go with GI.

Decisions decisions....

Piston is heavy and overrated. My AK-47 is piston, people are acting like its the newest greatest invention. Maybe 70 years ago...

Hawk has the Windham varmit exterminator model . He loves it so far. I have a Anderson manufacturing Am-15M416 with the "RF-85 treatment" All I can say is with app 900-1000 rounds thru both they have held up great. We were hitting golf balls at a measured 150 yds off a table with out a rest.

I have one. No problems or concerns so far. Build quality is excellent insofar as I understand these things. It has never jammed or failed to fire. Seems accurate enough. To keep it legal I had to buy the California model with the bullet button and magazine capacity is limited to 10 rounds. It just barely has enough rail to mount an EoTech holographic dot sight and magpul "iron" sights. Their web site is: http://www.windhamweaponry.com.

Top quality. Multiple mil/leo high profile contracts.

I ask because a LEO had an accidental misfire in a movie theater last week with one of these. He said he went to re-adjust the gun in its holster (not sure what style) and the gun went off. I assume he was carrying "cocked and locked", which isn't locked at all as far as I can see. The round hit an armrest, and nobody was hurt. Someone did call the theater after it hit the local news to say they were hit with fragments, but I think it was a scammer. We are kind of a gun friendly community, so it dropped out of the news in about 2 days.

I personally prefer no safety on a self defense gun. A cross bar safety is handy on a hunting rifle when hiking rough terrain with the gun cocked.
