I bought a stripped upper and lower receiver set to do an AR-15 pistol build. I had a 10.5" barrel, handguards and a few misc parts laying around for the receivers but needed to order additional parts to complete the build. The kit came with the additional parts I needed including a KAK Shockwave Blade Pistol Stabilizer attachment. Certainly not as fancy as a store bought Springfield Amory "Saint" AR-15 pistol but much cheaper and retains the classic lines of the M16/AR A2 series.

The pistol was built from a stripped receiver...ie a bare receiver that has not been made into a gun yet. With a stripped receiver you can build it into either a pistol or a rifle. Don't confuse an AR pistol with a short barreled rifle. A SBR has a buttstock that is shouldered with a barrel less than 16" and/or an overall length of less than 26" and is regulated by special rules by the NFA branch of the BATFE requiring registration and a $200 tax. In the case of a AR-15 pistol the barrel can be any length but can not have a buttstock that is shoulder-able...thus several after market manufacturers came up with a "stabilizing pistol brace" that may look like a buttstock but isn't...and has been ruled so by BATFE. Google "AR-15 pistol stabilizing brace" for more info.

One thing I like about Canada. I can have a 5" to 20' AR. Without no SBR law, or tax stamp.

My 7.5" I built a few years ago.

Well the way the AR is designed. It needs the buffer tube. There was a custom back in the day slightly shorter buffer and tube.

These are smaller then carbines. Be more PDW. But US firearm laws make no sense.
