There is a lot out there on this subject. Search.
You will see a lot of arguments about building pistols off stripped lowers, DROS, building a pistol off a virgin "rifle" lower legal by ATF standards, etc

I'll make it easy: Look into 80% lowers.

To answer some of your questions
An AR Pistol would not be on the DOJ Roster. That is why you see things about SSE.
Yes it would need a magazine lock and 10 round magazines because it would be a pistol that has a magazine outside the pistol grip.

12276.1. (a) Notwithstanding Section 12276, "assault weapon" shall also mean any of the following:


(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.
The above is not legal advice. It is just something you read from some dude on the internet. It does not reflect the opinion of If it seems rude it was probably meant to read sarcastically.
