No tahunua001, I wasn't comparing to a DPMS, I will compare it to my DDV4. I disagree, I believe the piston system will last longer due to les heat transfer and fouling. The wear is less. The standard usage life of an M4 before re barreling and bolt etc.. from the government is 8-10k rounds. The 416 is almost 4x that. I will be the first to say, most people will never shoot an AR enough to tell the difference. The piston guns are a waste for most to spend the price of the Hk or LWRC. I just think IMHO from my experience with them, they are superior in almost every way except price.
Sorry tahunua001, I mean no disrespect, this is just my opinion.
