Every time I see one of those “arm-brace pistols”, especially in 5.56 or heavier calibers, I have to chuckle at the whole SBR restriction thing.

The brace is a classic 'work around', much like the infamous bump stocks, due to the '35 Firearms Act and full-auto bans.

Geo', I don't chuckle about it. It just flat ticks me off, jumping thru' more hoops than Shamoo, when it isn't disarming the bad guys. If you've never done an FFA piece, you owe it to yourself...assuming you enjoy banging your head on the wall.
Steve', a .30 Luger? Wow, just wow. What are you considering for something gas operated?

Moon,
Yes, a 30 cal Luger. That is what I originally wanted to build and had gathered everything except for the barrel. Couldn't stand it any longer so I got a 10" 9mm barrel so I could at least test my build. The same day I finished it I found someone to make a 30 Luger barrel for me. Everything worked out perfect, I have 2 uppers with the one lower and not any problems.


My first AR was a DI converted to piston rifle. I really never liked it that much because of the size of the handguard that was required to fit over the piston assembly. I have disassembled that rifle with the intention of shaving down the piston block so that it would be easier to use with smaller handguards. After building the 9 and 30 I was wondering what I could do next so I started thinking about another bottleneck cartridge for an AR and the 357 Sig will be the one. I think it will work out with the piston, it's a little to much for blowback IMO.

Why do I keep considering this?

The availability of sub-sonic 308 Win ammo (at good prices) has me considering the POF Revolution 12.5" 308. This would have shooting dynamics similar to a 12.5 300 Blackout.


This would make a 308 suppressor swappable with my new AR-10 (POF P308 SPR), and would take the same mags as the big brother (I have 11 more Magpul Gen M3 20rd mags arriving Monday).


If purchased, I doubt it would ever see "full load" .308Win.

Been awake for ~ 3hrs today, I've already heard THREE references on the new about today being 4-20, and how that signifies getting high.


Yet yesterday, NOT A WORD about the significance of 4-19.


I'll let Frank D (president of a company I support) spell it out for those wondering about 4-19......




Those who don't learn from the past, are doomed to relive it.

Hahaha, so true.


Be sure you call the local PD, let them know you're planning on going out to the park, and NOT breaking the law......




Good thing these 5 LEOs had Google search handy, he may have been arrested!

Welp, mainly I laugh because of the total impracticality of such massive “pistols” anchored to an arm, to say nothing of lights, scopes, etc. hanging off them. In other words, to use them “legally” is nearly impossible, and to use them “practically” also means shouldering them, which is of course illegal. Win-win!
