Default Ar15 pistols

Is anyone else interested in the rock river arms PDS pistol?

I have been interested in ar pistols for a long time but didn't like the buffer sticking out in the back
now with the gas pistol system this pistol is a bute
michael bane said it best - something like - these are a lot like a PDA for the commercial sector
now i gotta save for one

I don't know - I can't warm up to them. Definitely try it before you buy it. I'd much rather have a fine pistol and a fine AR carbine/rifle.

I spent a decent amount of money on a Noveske 7.5" VIS Diplomat just to turn around and sell it w/i a month for a big loss. Unless youre going to SBR it Id go with a 14.5" perm. attached FH barreled AR rifle. AR pistols just seem odd.

I agree. I spent a little over $1K on an RRA 9mm 7.5" 9mm pistol because I was curious. Great gun but now that I've played with it for about a year it will be soon becoming a 9mm 7.5" SBR as soon as I get the paperwork. MUCH better idea...

I've seen several AR pistols where people have used the ACE pistol kit and just used the padded buffer tube "as" a stock ... but since its not classified as a stock its still just a pistol and you don't have to get the stamp
