Tacky what about that Sig brace . . . ?
+1 What Bobberfishin said. As long as it was sold as a pistol, you can always make it into a rifle. It might also be alot of fun to put the 22LR conversion in it as a pistol. I am waiting on a 10.5" AR Pistol so I can carry it easier in my car. The Carbine gets hard for a small person to maneuver in a car with bucket seats. Ok for my truck though. Either way, as John Lovell puts it, will be a 'disincentiviser for the other bad guys' .If you're going to put a "brace" (wink, wink...) on it, why not just pay the $200 for a tax stamp and put a STOCK on it OR put a stock on it and a 16" barrel?
I have a Shockwave Blade on my 300 BLK pistol. It is thin where it contacts my shoulder. I suppose it could be painful if shooting hundreds of rounds at a time, but I haven't noticed any issue. As far as I know, its legal to shoulder, at the last determination from ATF, as long as the length of pull isn't longer than 13.5"With a barrel under 16", what type of brace is acceptable to shoulder, if any?
Is that a YHM Diamond specter length on 10.5 inch barrel?Ah the short barrel ar. I own one, and several of its longer barreled relatives. I can say from my testing the shorter barrels are capable of the same accuracy as my longer barreled rifles ★ IF ★ you use the right round in it. The biggest difference is the loss of range versus the longer barreled version. This is due to more powder being burnt in the barrel, and less fireball which is wasting energy. More powder consumed in a longer barrel produces more velocity, which in turn gives longer ranges before the bullet goes subsonic, and loses stability. I consider my 10.5 a 300 yard gun maximum. If I need distance I use a 16, 20, or 24".
My pistol is a 10.5" 1n8 twist, wylde chamber that is a carbine length gas system. I would not go below 10.5" due to the shorter barrels like a 7.5 or shorter use a pistol length gas system which can be touchy to make reliable more so than the carbine gas system. If I was going shorter I would go with a gas piston or adjustable gas block direct impingement gun to tune the setup perfectly. This applies to rifle cartridges, not pistol, like my rra 9mm, its a blowback and cartridge is designed for pistol barrels, so a pistol caliber would be fine with a short barrel, but you can gain velocity in a longer pistol barrel such as the 16".
The pistol is a fun gun, with a 75 grain hpbt hornady match bullet and h4895 powder its a 1moa shooter at 100 yards. I would also recommend a noveske kx3 flash can, or similiar device to divert the blast forward. Its what I use. The short barrels are blasty, very blasty. However its a smaller package, great for tight places a longer AR can be cumbersome.
I can say that they can be great firearms with some good attributes, for certain purposes, and they are fun. If I had a few other ar's carbines or longer than I would consider a 10.5, 11.5, for my collection. If I didn't own an ar, I would go with a carbine or rifle as my first choice.
Here is mine. Will answer any questions if needed.
I think so. Its bern a long time since i built it. Its a 11.5" hbar barrel and either a 9.7 "midlength or 10.5" specture. I will check and let you know. I do remember only the barrel threads and maybe a 1/4" of barrel protruded past the handguard cap, worked well with the blast diverter.Is that a YHM Diamond specter length on 10.5 inch barrel?
I have the specter length on another ar and was looking to move it to a pistol build with a 10.5.i know specter is 9.75 inch so was hoping it would fit.I think so.

Yes you should be good. That length with a 11.5 barrel allows about any muzzle device and still be able to use the yhm handguard cap. It might not be so easy with a 10.5 if you plan to use a handguard cap and large muzzle deviceI have the specter length on another ar and was looking to move it to a pistol build with a 10.5.i know specter is 9.75 inch so was hoping it would fit.
