Looks vintage. Perfect.

Well I finally assembled her last night while assembling my old man's 24" varminter.

Here are some quick specs


9.25" barrel cut down from 10.5
Troy low profile gas block
Voltr casv-m handguard
Noveske kx3
Phase 5 pistol buffer tube kit
TM 80% lower
Mag tactical lpk
Magpul miad grip
Magpul afg
Magpul mbus (waiting on front)
Cheap-o red dot
CAA cheek rest
BCM med charging handle
FA bcg
Raddlock bb
(Installing bad lever tonight)
(Waiting on Mako Magwel grip)


Overall light weight and fun to handle. Will shoot it next week so I'll post results and maybe vids.

Feel free to critique or ask questions

How did you attach the cheek rest to the buffer tube?

because then it won't be a pistol anymore if you add the stock.

why would you want to get rid of the pistol status to make someone that can be easily made?

Yes, I know it would no longer be a pistol, it just seems to make more since to pin & weld it & turn it into a rifle since it's so close ,maybe a 1/2in off, 12.5+3.2, just my opinion

I would just put on a rifle buffer tube and slap on a vertical grip. maybe even a rubber cane tip since the ATF opines that they do NOT constitute a buttstock:

but then again, something like this may be pushing it:

Thordsens just came out with a CAA saddle adapter kit so the CAA saddle can attach directly to their buffer tube cover. I should be receiving mine today, and will let you guys know how it goes

What buffer tube?
Is the "brace" just hanging off the end of the tube or is it a long tube?

I just realized that you have a true lefty upper. Nice

It's Riflegear's pistol buffer tube, I didn't have it pushed all the way on at the time.

Does it stay put like that, or does it push further on from recoil?

It stays put, it's a very tight fit.

Just finished my 1st AR15 pistol. It's an 11.5" barrel 6.8spc designed for both supersonic and subsonic loads. It weighs 5.5 pounds with the zero round sled installed, but optics removed. The overall length is 27 inches and not subject to NFA "AOW" classification if a vertical foregrip is installed. I bought a cheap grip pod ripoff to see if I liked a vertical foregrip, but decided I prefer gripping the naked tube better. That grip will go on a 22lr bolt action for a range toy. Hopefully, I'll get to test fire it at the range next week.

It becomes a AOW with a forward vertical grip. Basically it's a huge No No. AFG by Magpul is not considered a vertical grip.

The overall length is 27". Not an "AOW" per ATF. It is similar to Franklin Armory XO-26. I edited my first post to state the 27 inch overall length to avoid further confusion. Technically, CA defines my gun as a "handgun" while the ATF defines it as a "firearm," but not a handgun if the forward grip is installed. Please visit http://www.franklinarmory.com/PRODUCTS_XO-26.html to downloading a copy of an ATF letter confirming what I said.

unless you can determine from this pciture that the weapon is less than 26" this is also not correct.

if a pistol configuration exceeds 26" it becomes a Title 1 "other" firearm to which you can LEGALLY attach a vertical grip.

Thanks for looking out for me. This is why I love Calguns! We care enough about each other to make sure we all stay law abiding responsible citizens. I am not trying to push, stretch, or bend the law. I am simply trying to enjoy the great freedoms we have in this country while still obeying the law.

Is it legal to put a LaRue hand stop on the bottom rail of the upper?

I love it. Adds to the fun factor for sure. Def throws the sound forward and keeps it soft shooting. Not nearly as soft with it off, but it's teeth rattling when it's off

So what's the verdict on the SIG pistol braces? Legal in CA? Can anyone source a link or something?
