Weird firearm idea
I have a weird idea that I have no idea if its been done before. I see the utility in AR pistols but loathe the hell out of the ugly, clunky buffer tube poking out the rear, even with the arm brace. Just doesn't feel like an actual pistol to me. Anyhow, I got to thinking about taking an AR, removing the gas system, buffer tube, recoil spring, hand guard and cutting the bbl down fairly short and then milling a slot on the left side of the upper alongside the bolt carrier (which will also be shortened) and adding a bolt handle to the BCG. Id likely make a nice looking plug for the rear threaded portion of the lower where the buffer tube went, for aesthetics. Bolt action AR pistol. It would be light, short, compact and most of all, different. Any ideas, comments, criticism?
