Yeah, I agree that this is very subjective & I do like shooting my 5.56 pistol on my cheek that's why I like the idea of a CAA saddle for more comfort. Just the fact someone misconstrues that as a stock & cause more HA than the cool factor & better cheek piece than just the foam & I'm seeing a lot more of this now.....Thoughts?

The saddle in the eyes of some people say that is it a stock, others do not see it that way. As far as a letter from DOJ/ATF regarding them I have not seen one yet.

To me it is not a stock as per the reading of a stock. It is simply a cheek rest, also now that I have my own AR Pistol I have found it to be to close to my face to try and use the end of the buffer on my shoulder. You cannot get a good view on the rear site, I forgot my EOTech at home and used my AR Pistol with only MBUS' on it and I came tot he conclusion that putting the rear of the buffer tube on my cheek was the sweet spot.

Anyways, be careful when out because some people do not know about the Legality of AR and AK Pistols. I have been asked several times now, and even a good friend of mine was out with both types. For his AK they would not allow him to use 10 round mags, but had no problems with hium using 10 rounders in his AR Pistol :laugh:

Foam, paracord, and even rubber cane tips have all been approved by the ATF. Frankly I don't see what the CAA saddle does that none of those don't do.

I found out I need to run a Heavy Buffer, that is why it was Short Storking :D

or a heavier & nicer BCG like a full auto LMT and keep the standard buffer.

but a buffer would be mo cheaper of course ;)

So right now I am not sure if the mil-spec bolt carrier assembly is meant for FA or not. You would it was since all of the parts on the PWS Diablo are top notch ;) Well at least in my book they are :D

all my research, and I did a ton, on this issue came down to needing either a full auto BCG (as they are a little heavier) like the LMT or a heavier buffer... but not both.

your BCG being "mil-spec" does not necessarily mean it is a heavier full auto BCG, agreed?

the issue was needing a little extra weight, which is why I specifically got the LMT full auto as it is noted to be a bit heavier and was mentioned by others as a top notch BCG and great for an AR pistol. OR you get a heavier buffer to kick back... but again, I never read that both are needed to address short stroke.

I opted for a higher quality BCG, over a heavier buffer, as the better quality BCG part was money better spent - more of course - than a heavier buffer.

try OC Armory as they have/had complete built AR pistols on the wall..

I know you want a lower, but just FYI. In the case of an AR pistol, it would be cheaper to buy it all built than build it like I did. Also, as an AR pistol, it needs to be sold as complete working pistol in CA... so not sure how easy it is going to be to find just a lower in CA. That is why many of us sent parts out to state to an FFL to put on a lower of choice to then send back as the complete pistol.

Can someone explain to me why an AR "pistol" requires a bullet button? reason why I ask is that I don't know of any semi auto pistols w/ magazine that requires some sort of device disabling the mag from being realized so why does an AR pistol require one? it is a pistol isn't it, or is there some sort of made up classification for a evil type pistol?

Should have my first pistol build on the range by mid March. Its a 7.5" upper and I'm wondering what kind of accuracy to expect. It has Lother Walther Barrel so I figure the potential is their for some decent groups just curious if with such a small package I can expect to hit a 10" plate at 200 yards. I started shooting my rifles with the stocks collapsed and not resting on my shoulder to practice just cheeking the buffer tube, and can ring the crap out of the plate even with my M&P15-22. If I can do it with my .223 pistol I'll be thrilled.
Thanks in advance.

What upper did you go with? Sounds like the PWS DC7 :D So far 100 yard steel silhouette is the furthest I attempted and hit with only mbus as a sight for me. I have Diablo, test vids of the Diablo show it hitting 300 meter center mass shots with a high power scope. Not sure if that helps out or not but I can see a 200 yard plate boinging with a decent optic.

seems it miss fed a round and the case expanded in the chamber causing the primier to fall out and the case to jam in the barrel

Buy the whole Noveske Pistol have it sent to a middleman that is an 07FFL and have them make it into a Single Shot for you and ship it to your FFL. Just make sure they accept Evil Black Pistols like that :43:

Omni Guns on GunBroker.com will build their Red River Tactical Pistol lowers into a single shot lower if you send them the bullet button, single shot bob sled magazine, lower parts kit, and pistol buffer kit. They do an excellent job and usually charge $25 for this service (if I remember correctly). I've ordered two pistol lowers from them seperately over the past year and they did an excellent job on them both. I got my bob-sled from Midway, my pistol buffer kit off gunbroker, and I stock the bullet buttons and lower parts kits myself. I use the same bobsled and buffer tube kit each time, and replace them once it is DROSd with different options. You only need those to get it DROSd. After that you can add a normal 10-Rd magazine.

My point is, this doesn't need to be complicated. Lots of sout of state hops will happily built the lower into a single shot for you. You just need to send them the necessary parts (if they do not sell them themselves). Sure they charge a couple bucks to do it, but it is cheaper than going through multiple FFLs, at least it is less of a hassle.

I really like the Red River Tactical Lower. So far both have been really snug fitting with no play at all with CMMG uppers only a tiny bit of play with a Fulton upper. I could do without the grenade graphic on the firing side of the lower. But I can live with it. The regular lower on the support side looks really cool. As far as being in-spec, they are perfect and the finish is nice and matches both CMMG and Fulton uppers.

Here is a picture of a 9mm build I did a while back.

Better picture of my GAU-5/A Clone...

http://i256.photobucket.com/albums/hh183/tacticalcity/IMG_0079.jpg

This is a retro-ish build. A clone of the GAU-5/A I was issued while serving in the USAF. Because the variant of the rifle I was issued had an 11.5" barrel and A1 hider, I had to build this as an AR Pistol rather than a rifle.

Fulton Armory A1 Slick Side Upper (no forward assist or brass deflector because that is what made the GAU stand out from the Colt Commando)
A1 Grip
A1 Flash Hider
11.5" Barrel (need to get the bayonet lug removed to be correct just have not had it done yet)
Trijicon Night Sights (my main liberty)
CAR15 Buffer Tube Kit
Paracord Wrap around the buffer so it is clear I do not intend to install the stock and to offer some padding for the face. Also adds to the "retro" look.
CAR15 Handguards
CAR15 Gas Tube
Red River Tactical Pistol Registered Multi-Cal Lower
CMMG Lower Parts Kit, Ambi Safety, Charing Handle, Bolt and Carrier
Gapper to protect my finger
Accuwedge

Thanks all.

The recoil is actually not bad. I shot it one handed(if you know me, it would make sense) without an issue, as well did a friend(whom is of average stature). Felt recoil (2 handed) is much less than a standard AK rifle.

As for the fireball, I haven't shot it at night or even dusk. However, when I do, I'll be sure to post some video.

The REAL fireball comes from the FAL pistol :D But that's a story for another day.

Since nobody answered you, I will try and provide more info.

I am told these lowers are manufactured by Mega Machine, and Mega has an amazing reputation. Mega makes lowers for lots of brands nobody has ever heard of, but everybody has heard of Mega. They've been around forever, and do great work.

I don't make any money promoting them. I say good things about them because they are one of the better lowers I've bought and mostly because Omni Guns, the main reseller for them on GunBroker.com, is willing to build them up into Single Shot Pistol Lowers before shipping them to your FFL. That makes it stress free for both me (the buyer) and my FFL, and avoids any real effort on my part. I just send the necessary parts to Omni Guns, he builds it up, and when my FFL gets it, it is complete lower that is single shot due to the Bob Sled. Then when I get it home, I swap out the Bob Sled for a normal 10 round magazine. Nothing could be easier.

These are not strictly PISTOL ONLY lowers. They are VIRGIN LOWERS. So you can build them into either a Pistol (if you DROS them as a handgun) or as a rifle (if you DROS them as a long gun). But you cannot switch back and forth between the two. Once it is DROS'd as something, that is what it has to stay. At least, that is the way I understand the law to work.

In any case, the only information I can provide on them is what I've been told, and positive feedback on the two I have owned. Not sure too many others have heard of them here.

The only thing I don't like about them is they have a logo on both sides of the receiver. The normal logo on the support side is pretty cool looking, and what you would expect. On the firing side however, the grenade all by itself without the triangle and company name looks a little goofy to me. However, given the high quality of the lower, the great fit, the price and the fact that they are relatively hassle free to get I am willing to deal with an extra logo.

Hey Jerry look at my AR Pistol Build thread, all the info is there. It was Duracoated by technique $5 a mag and it was $15 or so to have them shipped back to me. I sold a few of them for $25 but I think I am going to keep the rest of them for when I get my SCAR :rolleyes:

I'm sort of a noob when it comes to pistol builds, but would a heavier buffer help solve this problem? I know the military switched to an H Buffer (which is heavier than the standard buffer) in their 10.5" Carbines because they had trouble cycling rounds. Perhaps that would help? Just tossing out ideas here. Like I said, I am no expert. Maybe AR15 Barrels might know, he usually has the answers to all my AR related questions. He helped me figure out a headspacing issue on my AR Pistol last week (turns out I didn't really have an issue at all thank goodness - was just using the wrong size gauge to check it).

Yep. They were advertised as 5.56 gauges when I bought them, but the numbers (actual size) are for 223. Oddly enough the correct size 5.56mm Field Gauge says 223 on the side of it, but has the correct numbers (actual size) for 5.56. The manufacturers of these things are even more confused than we are...go figure!

FYI...

I carry some piston driven pistol and rifle uppers from PWS as well. I just figured switching buffers would be a more affordable solution for him, if it works like I have been told it would...and I did not want to get people mad at me for selling in the pictures thread...but if it is alright to mention that I have them here, then I should do so. Every little bit helps!

Here are all the in-stock uppers that are pre-built and ready to ship that will fit a standard size AR lower (see the 308 section for 308 uppers) - http://www.tacticalcity.com/minorcategory.asp?MinorCatID=193&CategoryID=1&SubCatID=43

The magazine looks too long. Do you have any pic of a magazine side by side with a 30 rnd AR magazine? Just want to have an idea on the lenght difference.

Yes this would only work for Oly uppers. Sorry for the crappy Iphone pics but you get the picture. Here are the CA legal 10 rounder magblocked AR vs Oly pistol caliber mag comparisson. The Oly mag is about 9" since its single stack while the regular shorter 7" AR mag is double stack. Hope this helps you decide your future projects. I may opt out for the .45 later since the mags are a lot cheaper now vs the Uzi mags that were selling for $200 bones each.

With a standard charging handle there is plenty of clearance. With the PRI Gas Buster however, it hits. That is because the gas buster has a different shape, with much more material, and hangs down lower. But a standard charging handle, no problem.

Sick M231! Where the **** did you find that upper? You lucky bastard.

I'm glad that you and jonni (a few posts up) like this pistol. It took almost two years of searching to put this together. The original Colt parts came from the usual sources like the Equipment Exchange on arfcom or from Gunbroker. The only parts of the upper assembly that are not original are the small round gas seal (reproduced from an original part) that connects the gas tube and the gas port in the barrel, and of course I'm using a standard bolt carrier and not the original open bolt version.
And yes, sometimes I am a lucky bastard ;-).

Here's a parts layout. The buffer plate was modified to look more like an original since this photo was taken.

You could legally do it. Be aware that having a buttstock that can be placed on the extention can open the door for constructive possession of a short barrelled rifle. The best option would be to modify it to not accept a buttstock, if not just don't have any extra buttstocks laying around.

Well looks like I'm going to build another. Have one question to ask, with a short barrel ,the pressure output,and DGI (direct gas impingement) those pistols posted would kick like a pissed off bull, why aren't any of you building a "GPU"(gas piston upper)? I put a ADAMS ARMS GPU on my last build and let me tell you ,I'll never go back . put over 500 rounds and the only thing dirty is the barrel ,ran cooler too,so this pistol project will go the same route.

This thread has peaked my interests.

Can I have the necessary parts shipped out to a dealer in Nevada/Vegas and then buy a lower from them out there, and have them assemble the upper/sled/etc together for me and ship it over to a FFL in CA so I can register it as a pistol? Does the dealer out in Nevada need to be a 07FFL to do all of this. Would this even make sense to do?

tjlayzer
08-03-2010, 12:49 PM
I think you would have to buy the lower out of state anyhow. I had the same questions as you and looked into the build it yourself route but I read and learned all I could on this site about building it yourself and its darn near next to impossible without breaking laws. I ended up getting a Spike's lower (Pistol marked) and sending them my upper and they put it all together with bullet button / single shot mag and shipped it to CA. Finally got it after excruciating wait yesterday.

docflash
08-07-2010, 6:45 PM
Here's how it works to be able to DROS a complete AR-style pistol in CA. It is first converted to a single shot, for example, by locking in a single shot magazine. If the pistol has a barrel that is at least 6 inches long and an overall length of 10.5 inches and is single shot, it is exempt from the CA handgun roster and can be DROS'd. Once in your possesion, the magazine can be removed using whatever tool necessary and a bullet button put in place. Now as long as you don't do anything that makes illegal such a attaching a vertical forward grip, adding a stock or using a greater than 10 shot mag, you have a legal pistol. Since it's your pistol you can convert it to semi-auto as you please, and it doesn't fall under the law that prevents manufacturing weapons.

I know this as I have one at my FFL to be DROS'd as soon as I get back to CA from NC (tomorrow).

It's a 5.5in. dedicated .22 barrel (looks bigger because of the suppressor.)
Spikes BCG
Spikes buffer plug


No real issues. occasional fail to fire, could be ammo, could be the RRA NM trigger. Fun little gun.

Finally I get to play in this thread too! I picked up my last toy of 2010 just yesterday. The following was built by Valkyrie Arms in Milpitas. It uses one of their VA-15 lowers (they're an 07FFL). The upper receiver is an ASA side charger. The LPK and buffer is RRA. Not sure where they order their barrels, it's 7.5" with a low profile gas block. The forearm is a Yankee Hill carbine length lightweight free float. At the muzzle is a Troy Claymore. Sights, rail protectors, grip and sling plate are Magpul.

My CMMG 9mm Pistol Upper came in today. CMMG is building this stuff for us very quickly. I ordered it only 1 week before it showed up. Amazing given the AR craziness these days. If anybody wants one like it, I have these uppers and the conversion blocks for sale on my website along with a 16 inch 9mm upper that has the same turn around time.

UPDATED PICTURE W/ REVISED PARTS

http://i487.photobucket.com/albums/rr237/hit2hurt/9mm_AR_Pistol_2.jpg

- CMMG 7.3" 9mm Upper w/ A2 Hider
- Red River Tactical Pistol Lower
- C-Products Top Drop-In 9mm Magwell Conversion Block
- YHM (I think) Pistol Buffer Kit
- Hogue Rubberized Grip (of all the grips out there these fit my hand the best)
- KNC Anti-Rotation Pins
- Chip McCormick Match Trigger
- Midwest Industries Carbine Length 4-Rail Handguards
- Magpul MBUS Flip-Up Sights Front and Rear (tried Midwest Industries first but was surprised to find I actually like Magpuls polymer sights better for this build. Mostly because they are so light weight but also because they really work well when you're face is this close to the rear sight.)
- Magpul Enhanced Aluminum Trigger Guard
- Magpul Low Profile Ladder Rail Covers
- Ambi Safety
- Prince50 Bullet Button
- C-Products 32 Round Magazine that I blocked off and is now a 10 round magazine.

Thanks for all the information on how to do this. If not for this thread it would never have occured to me to build an AR pistol, or even that I could.

I didn't see this upper on your site. How much are they running?

Adams Arms 7.5" PDW Piston Upper

Lower is a Colfax Tactical 80% that I finished solely using my drill press and dremel tool. Finish is Brownells Aluma-Hyde II.

Came out pretty good I think.

I have a single point sling coming and I'm adding a Levang Linear Compensator.

I'll try to get a better picture later in the week. I took this on my phone.

Haven't shot it yet but...I'd definitely reccomend getting a full length rail if you go 7.5" - not much to hold on to as you can see the rail only take up 2 XTM panels!

All the more reason to turn it in to an AOW so I can use a vertical grip.

EDIT: I'd like to add a BCM Gunfighter charging handle too. I LOVE these. Have 'em on all my ARs.

I haven't had these in a really long time. You can order it directly from CMMG. They will custom build you one exactly the way you want it. They weren't exactly cheap.

how are you fixing the belt so that it isn't detachable, so that it isn't an illegal AW?

Not on a rimfire rifle.

Aassault Weapons that are Rifles have to be semiautomatic centerfire.

This doesn't apply to pistols of course, which have their own set of AW features (magazine outside the grip, etc).

As a semi-automatic pistol, whether it be rimfire or centerfire, it is an AW if it has a detachable magazine outside the grip. A belt-feed like that could be considered a detachable magazine, and it is outise the grip, so it woudl be an AW, unless he came up with a way to make it so that the belt required a tool to remove it.

I seriously forgot I was in the AR pistol thread, lol :eek:

That's what happens when you have to many tabs open.

I'd like to get some more information on that belt fed upper.

I get to play in this thread once UPS turns up today. :jump:

Valkyrie Arms set me up with the pistol lower and have the following wandering around the East Bay in a brown van waiting to be fondled:

- PWS 10.5" Piston Upper
- PWS enhanced pistol buffer tube set
- CQB compensator

Also means I can bring my PWS Diablo upper back to CA.

Old EOTech going to be used for now until the Aimpoint arrives. Once I get the new girl put together I'll get some pics up.

We should have an AR Pistol day at Chabot...........:cool:

I dont want to start a thread... but what are the rules towards a pistol build vs. rifle build??

can someone pm me some info? I want one in a .22lr and .223 configuration? Can we have a mag release on a .22lr?

EBR Works
12-16-2010, 8:34 AM
My understanding is that a semi .22LR AR pistol build requires a bullet button since a pistol with a magwell outside the grip is considered an AW in Cali regardless of caliber. See post #748 above.

Threw this all together late last night.

Valkyrie Arms lower
PWS 10.5" piston upper
PWC pistol buffer tube kit
Old EOTech
Magpul BUIS
Surefire light
Blue Force Gear Sling


Need to change trigger for a JP version (so its the same as my VTAC M&P). Saddle Stock on the way as is a KAC Finger stop (although I don't think I'll use it).

Going to get my Diablo upper sent back from OOS as well and compare the two PWS uppers.

Alright guys...my phone is acting up so I apologize should there be a double post. So, it appears that I can slap an afg on my pistol (by way of pix here on this thread). Need I do anything else (besides neutering it) to the pistol or is this for show and tell only? Thank you and I'm so stoked now! Andy

Quick question...

After I finish my next AR build around summertime, I'd like to build an AR pistol chambered in .22LR. I keep seeing things about "NFA Rules apply" when looking at the uppers. Do I have to jump through extra hoops to have an AR pistol or do I just need to make sure that I mount the upper on a lower that is marked "Pistol"?

Sorry for the bad picture , My 3 ar15s , One retro a1 , one carbine and my pistol. . I built all 3 of these for cheap so overlook the plain jane aspect LOL , All 3 are 223. Before anyone ask I live outside of Ca so i can have the evil features on my ar's.

sorry for my ignorance but I have not found the answer to my question anywhere in this thread...

Why has no one attached stocks to cover the recoil buffer tube? Does that make it illegal? Be nice...
