AR Pistol Build
So I am now the proud owner of a 5.56 AR Pistol - that semi-built.  More like assembled.  Unless parts were already put together.

Spike's Tactical Zombie Lower
Can't remember 10.5 Upper / Keymod rails
S&W parts kit for internals
Black Fallout drop-in Trigger (~3.5lb pull single stage)
BAD lever
Thordsen cheek rest
BCM grip
Magpul angled fore grip
Magpul Flip-up BUIS
Magpul 20rd P-mags
- I still need to add a KNS trigger/hammer pin set, but otherwise she is good to go!

27" tip to tip

Update: Took it out for it's first run today.

First of all, trigger felt great compared to many AR's I have shot. Nice light crisp single stage.
Second, 100 rounds, not a burp, bump or hiccup!

I noticed that I prefer to grip behind the grip, even as short as the weapon is. I suspect I'll adjust that shortly.

Extremely happy with everything about this except sights. Never a fan of At the standard AR style sights. That's just me. I'll probably get an optic of some sort fairly shortly.
Congrats, they are fun guns. Looks to be a 10.5" bbl. IMO the best length.
Looks nice, I need to shot one to see if it is something I would like to add to my collection.
It occasionally slipped onto my shoulder. Surprisingly, the "cheek rest" was very comfortable there.
I like a single stage 3.5 to 4.5 trigger in the AR platform.

I have my AR9 pistol dialed in so there is almost no recoil with my 124gr hi-tech coated lead bullets. I can easily stay on target and blow off a 32 round magazine.
Currently shopping for an optic. Will take suggestions. I dig a circle dot. Anything EXCEPT Eotech/Trijicon/Leopuld
I purchased a Romero 5 for my wife's which she likes. Tried to get me one but was out of stock, so I bought a Holosun. They both work great, were easy to zero in. They have automatic shutoff and automatic turn on when moved.

I would give the Sig Sauer Romero 5 the leg up because they make the battery access easier and it looks a little better made, but only time will tell.
I'm honing in on a Holosun...
