New Sunday Go to Meeting Gun

Already had a couple AR Pistols. But, I wanted a more streamlined and lightweight 7.5” Pistol. 

So, I got an upper from Daniel Defense, a Nickel Boron BCG from Brownells, and a charging handle off my spares shelf. 

Attached it to the lower holding my 11.5” AR Pistol and made them a long/short pair. 



Took it to the range and zeroed it at 50yrds with an Aimpoint Comp M4. 



Overall, I’m pleased. It do what it ‘sposed to do.  Should be a good discrete carry / travel gun. 

On a side not, I recently got a Caldwell brass catcher and couldn’t be more pleased. Bears heck out of picking up brass!!

    What is the thingy on the rail for your forward hand to stay clear of the muzzle? What do you have on the end of the muzzle? I am getting close to fiddling with another lower.

    I'll once again suggest a tennis racket case.

    I use it as a finger grip by wrapping my support hand middle finger around it while gripping the Forend. 

    The barrel is 7.5” and the Forend is 9”. So, the Muzzle has what DD calls a “Flash Forwarder”. Basically, a can with the bottom cut out to project the blast forward of the Forend.

    Do you prefer it to the Magpul angled foregrip? So no flame cutting to your forend? Can you put a cheek riser on that brace without running afoul of the BATFE? Does the flash forwarder work as good as a Levang compensator?

    Yes. 
    No. 
    No. 
    Neither control Muzzle rise.

    You go to a Drive-in Church, I've seen a couple where cars pull up to speakers on a stand like the Drive-ins and folks stay in their cars ..........could have anything handy at arms reach there.

    Good to know, thanks. I like the way my Levang redirects muzzle blast and sound.

    Excellent work.
    Knowledge is essential to living freely and fully; understanding gives knowledge purpose and strength; wisdom is combining the two and applying them appropriately in words and actions.

    With the Levang no longer available, the AR Stoner linear brake is a good replacement
    I have one on an AR and it works well.

    Nice build.  I wonder how a linear comp would work on that?

    I have a Levang on my other 7.5” AR Pistol. Works about the same.

    Like the looks of that thing, and that brass catcher looks REALLY handy!

    Came in the mail the other day, took about 30 seconds to install. 
    Currently have one bad foot and a hole in the other, will be a bit before I can do more than fondle and dry fire, but it is perfect for my set up.

    Excellent, I just ordered one of those for my pistol. Seeing your new setup was a reminder that I needed to get a brace.

    Did you order the tube to go with it?

    I got one locally for a lot less, but they don't seem to be available anymore.

    $20 for a screw? Think I will make my own.

    My thoughts. 

    I don’t need to adjust the brace anyway. I want it short. Fits in the case.

    I picked mine up for 6 bucks at a gun show, Think the guy made them in his garage.  I keep mine short, but figured having the option couldn't hurt.

    Speaking of case, what are you using?

    I have mine in a Oakley Kitchen Sink back pack when traveling.

    An old metal Hilti rotary hammer drill box. Hopefully it will still fit with the brace.
