The Gas Piston Operating System is growing in popularity and offers advantages over the AR-15's traditional direct gas impingement design. Primary among them is keeping hot propellant gases and carbon fouling from being dumped directly into the upper receiver upon firing, keeping the action clean, cool and functioning reliably for longer periods with less maintenance. The B.E.A.R. offers a Tool-Free Take Down piston assembly for easy cleaning in the field. Additional features include an adjustable gas regulator for optimum cycling with different ammunition types and/or sound suppressor usage, and a unique polymer Dust Wiper attached to the bolt carrier that protects the ejection port from outside debris when the bolt is in battery.
Upper comes complete with bolt carrier assembly, side charging handle, and standard charging handle assemblies, and is ready to drop onto any standard AR-15 lower receiver.
