The 5.56 PDW Tactical Elite 7.5" Upper is a short barreled pistol piston upper that incorporates the patented Adams Arms technology and the Samson Evolution extended free floating forearm. It comes with our proprietary Melonited heavy contour barrel and pistol length gas piston system. Because the piston chamber is the same size as the chamber on the rest of the Adams Arms gas lengths this 7.5" upper now has the proper dwell time to get cyclic rate and bullet velocity needed to make this a viable short barreled option for any CQB scenarios. We've also added a 7" Samson free floating Evolution forearm giving the shooter the ultimate tactical option in a personal defense weapon. This creates the shortest, most reliable, and accurate complete upper.

Great product from a truly elite company
I have been using Adams Arms' piston kits in my builds for almost five years, not a single complaint. I finally decided to make myself a AR pistol for the holidays and when I saw their deal on this upper, I jumped on it. Needless to say, as with every other product, intense care was taken in manufacturing, quality control, and shipping. You get what you pay for with these guys, and I know this upper will be around for decades. Once you shoot with a piston gun...well..mainly once you clean a piston gun, you'll never want to go back to direct gas. Their brother company Samson who makes their rail systems is another top notch small American business as well. Keep turning out great gear with southern pride!

Tac Elite Upper
Just recived my Adam Arms 7.5" Elite upper from Souwthwest Sports Ft. Worth TX.
First round on my M16 was a primer soft hit. After that it ran like a clock @ 850rpm.
Out of 7 differant uppers, the Adam Arms 7.5" Elite. Is the best upper I have ever had,period!
Thanks for a great, trouble free product, right out off the box!!
I highly recomend your product & will show it of at he Oklahoma Full Auto Shoot & Trade Show. June 22nd.
Your going to sell a bunch of these, when the 1100+ Machinegunners see how good it runs.
You got a winner & a repeat customer.
Thanks Walter OKC OK

This is one of the best uppers i have bought. The quality is top notch. Im a huge fan of the melonite process. As far as how it functions, using the word flawless would be an understatement. For being only 7.5'' you would think you would occasionally run into issues of short stroking or failing to eject but i have not run into any of these issues. As far as ammo goes mine feeds everything from my green tips all the way down to herters without missing a beat. I will have a hard time not buying AA for any of my future uppers.
