Well, my little inexpensive PSA pistol didn't stay that way long... It now sports a C7 upper, and a Sig Romeo 5. I'm digging the old school vibe, (like the A1 I had in basic) and it carries so easily.

OK I am going to show my dummyness by asking a few questions. First I have never wanted an AR "pistol" but was curios about them. I watched a video in post #27 and the guy from PSA is firing the gun from the shoulder just like a regular rifle. How is this considered a Pistol?

The pictures posted made it appear these can all be fired from the shoulder. They look more like a SBR than a pistol. Can my DPMS Carbine be converted to a Pistol like you all have? Or do you have to buy them in the pistol version from the factory?

Sorry for what is probably a bunch of dumb questions but its the only way I know to find out.

You cannot put a short barrel on a rifle lower unless it was first a pistol or a virgin receiver.
Doing so (putting a short barrel on a rifle lower) constitutes a short barrel rifle.

So no, you cannot put a pistol upper on the lower you mention without going NFA.


Firing from the shoulder using a brace:
This has been a sticky wicket, as of now, the ATF considers occasional firing from the shoulder as not redesigning the pistol brace so it’s still a pistol.

This could easily change depending on the political whim of certain politicians.

Shouldering a brace has gone back and forth. I do recall when it was taboo and opined "not allowed" by the ATF, I took a few classes where LE right alongside some civilians shouldering braces. Nothing was said. Not something I would risk in public (then or in the future if opinions change again), but for now, you can use the brace to "stabilize" your pistol in a variety of ways

Army braces won't go away; they have a purpose for some handicapped shooters. We may see another "opinion" on how they can't be used, but their massive proliferation has really let the cat out of the bag. It would be hard to enforce (if ruled against again) unless you were naked, shouldering a brace and dancing on the top of a car of ATF agents.

You can also just put the buffer tube on your cheek, almost like a normal cheek weld but without touching your shoulder. Not quite as stable, but not bad as a backup to shouldering.

Built a 4” 9 mm and a 10.5 inch 300 BO in the last few weeks. The 9 mm has since gotten a 3 slot riser to replace the big unit in the pic, plus a hand stop. It has the adjustable brace on it, and Tennessee Arms polymer lower. It fits TIGHT with the upper, ran right at $350, before ETS/Glock mags and red dot. It had two FTF on the first 3 rounds, and hasn’t had a single malfunction since.

The 300 has a BCA 1:7 stainless barrel, Anderson lower, Sig Romeo 5 dot. Shoots Hornady Black 110s into nice groups, and 230s hit the target...but holdover is a real thing.
