Default new builds! ar pistol tell all

Hey guys just got these in today

forumrunner_20130208_145053.jpg

I have a upper ready for one

And want to build one if the others into a pistol

I currently have no experience with ar pistols ... Any recommendations in barrel length? Was planning on doing a 10 inch

Also is it legal to shoulder the buffer tube and shoot? You are not attaching a stock... But would that be consider to be using your tube as a stock.. Seen some people on YouTube recommend it idk

I'll just leave this here

Combat,

That is going to be an exciting build! Can not wait to see your final results.
As far as the one picture I am not positive but I believe it might be illegal to add anything to the Extension Tube (Buffer Tube) on an AR Pistol. I know it is illegal to add any type of vertical grip on the handguard on them.
Send us some pictures and a range report on yours.
Here is my AR Pistol.
It Has Rock River Arms Receiver, RRA 2 Stage NM Trigger, KNS Anti-Rotate Trigger and Hammer Pins, Quick take-down Take Down and Pivot Pins, Noveske Flaming Pig Muzzle Break, Optics and other features.

Man that's an awesome looking rig

The picture above is side thing I had in mind i'm not sure what exactly I wanna put on it but I already have a rail and a lower...

I really like the flaming pig look I have thought of using that but want a brake on it


Do you happen to know anything about shouldering it?
How does it shoot.. What is you're main use for yours?

Gentleman,

I will try to cover everything I've read so far. The CAA check rest in that picture is legal, but you have to leave some visible tube at the end. The tube is what you can make contact with. Yes you can shoulder fire it , and rest your check on the saddle. As far as putting a break on a pistol, it depends on the length of you barrel. I run a 7.5" barrel so I am using something that creates a little back pressure, due to the short cycling of the pistol has system. I have a PWS CQB, it's similar to the Noveske KX3. A Troy Claymore can work good too. if your using a longer barrel it can cycle smoothly with out needing on of those above muzzle devices. I personally think anything longer than a 7.5" is just an SBR, minus a stock.
Here is a pic I mine.

Using a long buffer tube on a pistol is OK with the Gov? Somehow I kind of doubt it, but what do I know.

The pistol buffer tube is the same as a carbine milspec tube, minus the ability to attach a stock.

Thanks brother. Im running the YHM. The sad part is, its never been fired. Just finished it, and have not had time. Still considering running BUIS with a micro red dot. I want to swap out the A2 irons before I go sight it in. The A2 were leftovers from previous builds.

My first build, unfortunately tragically lost in a boating accident. I miss her dearly. RIP.
7.5 barrel in a Vltor CASV-M handguard. I had an Aimpoint H1 on a KAC mount on it.

I think I still have pictures of her with the Aimpoint on somewhere, I can upload for you if you want.
