Ar15 pistol
 
Can anyone please explain the point of an ar pistol. There's no way to take the buffer tube off and it still work so why would you take the buttstock off... Pointless I understand that if it's a pistol lower you can put any size barrel you want if there is no butt stock. But it all just seem pointless anyone else thing so ?

Some people are not willing to go through the paperworks and fuzz. And yet we have to spend another $200 for the tax stamp. And the worst part, have to wait at least 6 months for it. So they compromised for not having the stock on it.
Regardless using the pistol tube or rifle buffer tube without the stock, it will still works.

Yea I understand that but a barrel that's a few inches shorter doesn't seem like a good trade for no butt stock

They are lighter and good for maneuvers though. Don't u notice SWATs or cops use them when clearing rooms for hostiles?

Lightweight, easily maneuverable in tight quarters, accurate out to 100+ yards , you can still use the buffer tube to cheek weld with if needed , its not great but it works . The fire and percussion that comes out of the end of the barrel is FN awesome :D

Some of us cannot legally have an SBR.

Some of us want a short barreled weapon for home defense.

Some of us think they look cool as hell.

Ballistically, m193 and m855 isn't the best ammo to go with, but a mag full of Hornady Tap Low Flash 75gr sure works wonders for those close encounters.

I will eventually convert it to 300 blackout, once i can even find a 8 or 9" barrel.
