Told by who? I don't give a shit what people think about any guns I may use and I'm used to getting the Rolleyes treatment from my wife. Rolls right off the back at this point Big Grin. I'd much rather have one of these AR pistols than a full sized AR. If it's reach I'm after I have something else in mind and the shorter profile would provide more utility in enclosed spaces. Sounds like some fudd talk to me.

So the build is almost complete, just waiting for the muzzle brake and extended hand-guard. Went with a Kaw Valley linear. Then the test and tune. Hopefully not much tune. Wink

POOFA... I was still unlearned and impressionable. However, the advancements in the tech in the last few years since have really made it a much more robust and palatable platform.
tolerance for failure meter... LOW

The 300 AAC pistol build went fine. Fun to shoot. Only fed handloads.

The 5.56 build also went well. Lots more work involved. Purchased a carbine upper. Chopped barrel and drilled gas port. Might not have needed to do so, but I wanted it to function with some lighter handloads. Threaded end for linear comp., then tested it. A bit overgassed with XM193 ammo, as to be expected. Handloads shot great thru it! All that is left is to finish the muzzle crown and put on the ambi safety. Might toss on an H3 buffer for shooting the NATO stuff.

I am having way too much fun with these damn ARs.

Tested the H3 with XM193 and my handloads, today. The gun still functions flawlessly with both types of ammo. Even ran a few of my buddy's Tula thru it. No problems, and the brass looks fine now. Was getting some bolt smearing with the Carbine buffer.
