My PSA lower is coming in and I need some inspiration.
Noveske 7.5" Diplomat
Tikki is that a Spike's buffer tube with a CAA check rest? How does that rest attach to the tube and is it solid?
MJ, I believe I've seen more than one Noveske from your collection...
CAA saddle on a milspec carbine PSA tube. Tube has been filled with epoxy, and then plastidipped about 50 times to increase the girth. There is no way a stock is going onto this tube unless you get a jackhammer to it. It has added some considerable weight but it works to balance with assinine (mine) choice of using a 7.5 heavy barrel. My pistol weighs more than my 16" carbine without the sight and light.
Once I was able to increase the girth on the tube probably about 1/8" in diameter, I used a bicycle inner tube and lubed it up and slipped it over the tube. The added girth and rubber tube allowed the CAA saddle to clamp on really tight. It takes a few minutes of really bad language (hard core french stuff at that) and real muscle to make it move even a 1/4 inch. Its on there pretty good now.
On a side note. I have handled a couple pistols with CAA saddles on pistol tubes and invariably there's a lot of movement. The only one that seemed pretty sturdy was one that a guy had mounted to a pistol tube with foam padding (like a handlebar tube) and zip tied it. But it still slide when you pulled on it. That inspired me to take a spare buffer tube and modify it.
that almost looks like an imperial stormtrooper blaster from starwars!! i wish there was AR parts that got even closer, i would soooo be there!!
That is awesome! What handguard is that? Also where did you get the short mag?
The handguard is a YHM 5004 smooth and the mag is a 20 rd Pmag. The muzzle break is a Novasek kx3 flaming pig. The laser is a Aixiz 35 mw green laser.
Amazing job, best looking one i've seen yet. Thanks!
They are fun. I have many AR's in differant calibers and I didnt think I needed an AR pistol. I had one lower left so I decided to build a pistol. Now I plan to build a 458 Socom and a 6.8 SPC pistol.
I'm just finishing up my AR pistol and starting to work on a AR rifle next....gets addicting.
Yah, I have a few and I plan to build more.
6.8 SPC II
5.56 18" heavy barrel
I plan to build
10.5" 458 Socom
12.5" 6.8 SPCII
Looking at a Wilson Combat 7.62x40
