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.

Bushmaster / DPMS had a table at the Tulsa Gun Show last month. I grabbed this chrome lined 11.5 Bushmaster pistol upper from them for $300.

https://www.bushmaster.com/shop/5-56...Barrel/p/91954

Local shop has a $50 Anderson stripped lower. Need to fined a LPK and SBA3 brace for it.

I finally put my PSA kit together Ive had for 6 or 7 months about a month and a half ago,I wasnt in no hurry since I really couldn't see the point of a AR pistol,its a bare bones PSA kit with a Strikefire ll red dot, I took it out yesterday for first time to zero it in,I have to admit its a blast to shoot. I was getting around 1" at 50 yards,and around 4" at 100 yards with Tula ammo much better then I expected,it is dang fun,but truthfully only actual use I see for it is a poacher gun since it can be carried loaded in pickup,and I'm not a poacher,I do always carry a .22mag,or .327 Henry for coyotes and such in PU and tractor while choring I can see it giving me a little more range and energy for that.
It is definitely way more fun to shoot and way more accurate then I expected.

I started my Pistol today by acquiring a UTG pistol length quad rail in exchange for a tall boy of light beer.

Beyond that, I donít know. Maybe 6.8, maybe 45acp, maybe even 450 bushmaster. I havenít planned that far ahead.

Going to jump in to the pistol craze & put some of my stimulus money to a use that will **** off liberals. Got one of the FN made CHF barreled 10.5" uppers from PSA on the way. Ordered an A1 upper from NoDak Spud & some OD green furniture, a duckbill flash hider and an OD green KAK shockwave adjustable arm brace. Have a Toolcraft nickel boron BCG laying around I'll toss in as well. Sounds like it will be about 2 weeks before all the parts are here, so now I just get to sit around & think about what else to build. Maybe a ~12.5" AR in 308?

Just finished piecing together this 9mm. I may have started it months back, but I finished it now, so I'm, calling it the "Plague Pistol".

Here's my recently finished 300 BLK. I wanted to go for a Mk18-ish look.


Parts:
  • B.A. Hansen 10.3" barrel (1:7)
  • Surplus Colt M4 upper
  • Anderson forged lower
  • Anderson stainless LPK
  • SB Tactical SBA4 brace w/ carbine tube
  • Daniel Defense RIS II MK18 rail (FDE)
  • PSA M16 BCG, standard charging handle
  • NOT PICTURED, EOTech EXPS3-0 Tan

SUPER happy with the barrel and good thing, since it's the only 10.3" barrel with a 1:7 twist in existence. This barrel with the Mk18 rail makes any muzzle attachment perfectly flush. Shoots sub-MOA at 100 yards with 240-grain SMKs. Debating on buying vs. building a suppressor. Started learning and watching videos (source) on solvent trap kits, which is an 80% suppressor kit with baffles that you drill. Seems to work well enough. Form 1 vs. Form 4 wait times....
