No change in my opinion. G.P. AR's are a downgrade on all points with exception to waterborne operations.

D.I. actually unloads the Bolt Lugs hen the gas system is pressurized. G.P. adds more load. This means more broken bolt lugs. HK still has issues with premature bolt lug failure in the M27.

So glad I got rid of the op-rod upper when I did. That thing was more of a headache than any other AR upper I've ever had.

Are you a paid SOTAR spokesperson? Unpossible!

Ha, I'm still remembering all the money I dumped into that damned upper trying to get it to run right, even on Silver Bear (which never really got to even 85% reliable).

My disdain for op-rod AR uppers has been earned by firsthand experience.
