Adams Arms’ .300BLK rifles are designed with a pistol length gas pickup for the highest reliability with the wide variety of .300BLK ammunition. THeir newly designed XLP gas block offers selector adjustable gas settings to tune the system to each owner’s individual shooting needs.

THE ADAMS ARMS PISTON SYSTEM

- Carbon and gases are expelled forward, away from operator.
- Corrosive resistant coating processes.
- Harmonics are not transferred into the barrel.
- Tunable gas selector settings for all applications
- Doesn’t vent directly to atmospheric pressure; this eliminates flash signature and supersonic crack which is optimal for night vision and suppresses fire.
