Thinking about it though....maybe with a RD or holo sight, an MS3 sling and ASAP fitted to a short barrel AR pistol... this could result in a highly maneuverable weapon system. To me, pictures of folks holding the AR pistol at full extension with both hands on the pistol grip, look very uncontrollable and even uncomfortable. I could be wrong but one hand on the pistol grip, the other on the barrel guard and pushing against the sling....seems a more efficient way.

Thank you.
Oh, I am there with you. I am personally hoping for the Space Zombies to hit so we can end all this election non-sense and get on with the fun.

I have shot an AR pistol and your suspicions are correct, it's not comfortable to hold as a pistol, but in a more locked in three point with the sling like you are talking about does seem like it would be a perfect CQB option. I like your thinking.

I have to go back and check the rules.....LOL....not sure if any kind of political speech is tolerated..... so for now I will not go there. The future looks very, very uncertain to me and could go south very quickly. I think we are at that proverbial tipping point...or close to it.

GAH! there won't be any riotin if owhampers wins. "WE," the good and well-behaved, will not push the envelope with riotin and lootin, like the heatherns will/would if Romney wins.

it's the difference between us and them..........upright knuckle-draggers against brain-dead slugs. lol

Please correct me if im wrong, but i am under the impression that if the buffer tube has locking holes on the bottom or a threaded end cap on the end of the buffer tube, then its considered a rifle stock. If a buttstock can be attached to it then its not considered a pistol. I know that pistol buffer tubes come with a smooth tube and a flat non threaded end.

But there's a letter from ATF saying regardless which buffer tube as long a stock NEVER installed.. good to go. Im on my phone, dont have the link. But i have it on my desktop.
Indeed i registered one of my AR pistol with rifle buffer tube at metro.
