We predicted 2014 would huge for the AR-10 / .308 AR market and the new Adams Arms .308 Piston Driven Rifle is the perfect way to top off the year of some awesome .308 components. This new .308 Piston rifle from Adams Arms weighs very similar to many of the AR’s in my own personal collection which is pretty impressive since most .308 AR’s weight a pound or two more than their 5.56 counterpart.
