An OLL AR pistol has a magazine well outside of the grip, which makes it an assault weapon if it's semi auto with det. mags. Since a locked mag is required at all times, the mag capacity is limited to 10 rounds. So no high caps.

Can you use hi cap mags on an ar pistol?

Not in CA unless it is a registered AW.

You must fix the magazine on a semi-auto AR pistol in order to avoid having the pistol be an assault pistol. If you use a magazine with a capacity greater than 10 rounds in a fixed mag build (pistol or rifle) it would be an assault weapon.

Until you "get" this, don't build or buy an AR pistol.

Pistols
(4) A semiautomatic pistol that has the capacity to accept a detachable magazine and any one of the following:
(A) A threaded barrel, capable of accepting a flash suppressor, forward handgrip, or silencer.
(B) A second handgrip.
(C) A shroud that is attached to, or partially or completely encircles, the barrel that allows the bearer to
fire the weapon without burning his or her hand, except a slide that encloses the barrel.
(D) The capacity to accept a detachable magazine at some location outside of the pistol grip.
(5) A semiautomatic pistol with a fixed magazine that has the capacity to accept more than 10 rounds.

Based on this if the gas tube is removed/plugged and the weapon is no longer semi auto you could use high caps.......correct???

I would plug the gas port, not just remove the tube. If you do, then yes, you would have a high cap bolt action pistol. :puke: ;)
