AR Pistol Build Details and Pictures

Posted on August 4th, 2014 by ar15news

I recently built a new sexy looking AR Pistol that I’ve been taking pictures of and have gotten quite a few questions about what components I used, why I set it up the way I did and how its running so far. Its been a while since I did a “Build Details” article so I figured since so many people were interested in this build I would do one on it. This article will basically be a run down of the different components as well as an explanation of why I used them if needed.

We’ve all seen some AR Pistols that have extremely short barrels/uppers. I tend to not go shorter than a 10.5″ barrel on mine as it’s short enough to make them more compact without sacrificing a ton of accuracy or velocity. This whole build started out with a mid length AERO Precision COP Upper and Forged Lower. This is the second AR I’ve built with this receiver set and I love them.

THE AR PISTOL UPPER
The Upper, as I mentioned, features an AERO Precision COP mid length upper with a Parallax Tactical TiN BCG, Magpul MBUS Pro sights and Fortis Mfg Hammer charging handle. For the optic I wanted something very small and compact so I went with the Vortex Optics RAZOR and an American Defense Mfg QD mount. The barrel is an ODIN Works 10.5″ .223 Wylde Stainless Steel barrel with a Primary Weapons CQB comp on the end. The combination of a shorter barrel and the CQB comp makes it perfect for a home defense weapon but the ODIN Works barrel definitely holds up to its reputation as a straight shooter and is absolutely capable of hitting longer range targets with ease. I’ll shoot some 100 yard groups soon and do another writeup for you guys on the accuracy of this 10.5″ AR Pistol.

THE AR PISTOL LOWER
The lower for this build is an AERO Precision lower that I bought as a set with the upper for this build. Both were Cerakoted Tungsten for a unique look. So far I’ve added a Battle Arms Development BAD-CASS-SA short throw selector and EPS Pins, Phase 5 Weapon Systems Winter Trigger Guard, Magpul K2 grip and an Impact Weapons Components QD End Plate sling mount. There is a new ALG Defense ACT trigger waiting for it down stairs that I need to install.

Another feature that should be standard on ALL AR Pistols is the combination of a Sig Sauer SB15 Arm Brace and an SB15 specific buffer tube such as the KAK Industry Super Sig Tube or Phase 5 Hex-2.  These buffer tubes push the SB15 further away from the receiver making the setup a bit more comfortable to shoulder (Shouldering the Sig SB15 is legal according to the ATF). For this build I installed the KAK Super Sig Tube and its awesome. You can even get an adjustment kit of rings that you slide on before installing the SB15 to adjust how far back it sits.

You also might notice the MagPod on the magazine. These will be available for purchase very soon!

THE BUSINESS END
The part I get questions about the most is the business end of the upper. Most people seem to really like this setup so here is a pretty detailed look at it. One of the other reasons I like muzzle devices like the CQB comp is that you can put a light right up to the end of the muzzle and not worry so much about it getting damaged in the blast of the rifle or coated in carbon. My setup consists of a Magpul AFG and a Haley Strategic Partners Thorntail Offset Mount with an INFORCE WML mounted on it. The Thorntail Offset Mount is made by Impact Weapons Components for HSP and is an awesome mount for the WML. It has four slots to mount the WML on and can even be mounted cantilevered like mine is.

As you can see the WML is pushed out almost to the tip of the muzzle. Pushing it further forward not only reduces shadowing in the light beam but also gives you a lot more real-estate to put your hand on a shorter rail.

The next few pictures will show you a detailed look at the complete setup and hand position. While using the AFG I like to put my thumb on top of the rail for a solid grip. To activate the light, all you need to do is slide your thumb to the left and the activation button is right there. This is a very effective and comfortable setup.

If you like this light setup and want to put it on your rifle or pistol build, I would recommend checking out www.ImpactWeaponsComponents.com. They have the HSP Thorntail Offset Mount, Magpul AFG grip and INFORCE WML light all in-stock. Plus, if you use the discount code “ar15news” at checkout you’ll save 5% off your entire order. 

This is definitely my favorite AR Pistol build to date. After a few hundred rounds so far I can tell you it runs like a champ and is absolutely a blast to shoot. The bolt holds open on empty mag, no Failure to Eject, no Failure to Feed, etc. Just an all around accurate AR Pistol that I would not hesitate to grab when my life depended on it.

“M-LOK is looking to be a very promising entry into the push to replace Picatinny rails and to create a more modular system for accessories. We are happy to create a custom M-LOK version of our popular rail,” said Parallax Tactical President Joseph Chen.

The new Parallax Tactical FFSSR features six M-LOK slots per side, in addition to five MOE slots on 45 degree angles. It also features a full Picatinny top rail, along with a full rear Picatinny rail section and two single slots at 3 and 6 o’ clock for various sling hardware. It features two anti-rotation QD sockets in the rear for sling mounting options. It is secured by a propriety barrel nut and six hex bolts. It is expected to weight approximately 14oz. It measures 13.5” OAL, 1.35 ID” and a little over 1.5” OD.

The Parallax Tactical FFSSR KeyMod rail has been a very popular option for those looking for a quality rail without breaking the bank. Up until the other day the longest model available was just 13″ long. Now Parallax is releasing the 15″ model and with so many people waiting for these, I’m pretty sure they’ll go quick. These rails are shipping to dealers now and the guys at Weapon Outfitters are offering a special pre-order price of just $189 which is a steal for a 15″ high quality rail. Check out the pics below, then head on over to www.WeaponOutfitters.com to order yours.

Sneak Peek!! New KeyMod Rail from Parallax Tactical

Posted on July 31st, 2013 by ar15news

Parallax Tactical has released some pictures of a new KeyMod version of their FFSSR rail/handguard. So far not a ton of details have been released other than that they will range in size from 7.2″ all the way up to 18″ long. Pricing will start at just under $200 (the 11.5″ will be $199) and probably end up in the mid $200’s for the 18″. The KeyMod version will offer a full length picatinny section at 12 o’clock and KeyMod at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock. In between there are small cutouts that look like they would work perfect with some Mount-N-Slot accessories from Impact Weapons Components. I personally have not had any experience with Parallax Tactical but my buddy Roy (owner of Weapon Outfitters) is a pretty reputable source and he loves their stuff. Look for Weapon Outfitters to be the main retailer of this new Parallax Tactical KeyMod rail. Word is, it will be 2-3 weeks before they will be available. We’ll keep you posted as soon as they are ready.
