Picture sucks, I know, took it with my web cam   ;D
Came with cardboard box, and 1 20 rd mag.
Takes standard Glock mags. It is NOT an AR design, it just looks similar.

Nice. Looks like a perfect size for stealth carry.

I can carry my AR in a backpack, but it is heavy and I need to make a better liner to keep it in place. That one looks like it would fit perfectly in my pack and be lighter.

I wish I'd kept my Kel-Tec Sub2000.... it folded in half and fit in a laptop bag.

I expect it will come in the disease form, though. I'm susceptible to diseases, and you can't shoot a damned disease." ~ Judge Roy Bean, Streets of Laredo

For the Patriots of this country, the Constitution is second only to the Bible for most. For those who love this country, but do not share my personal beliefs, it is their Bible. To them nothing comes before the Constitution of these United States of America. For this we are all labeled potential terrorists. ~ Dean Garrison

It's a DENSE little bugger .
And the only way to shorten it is to take the barrel off, it threads kind of like an Uzi, or M-3 Grease Gun.
The 2 pins only release the trigger pac.
The brace is just a rubber sleeve that slides over the buffer tube.
Is it legal to stuff that with paper to adjust Length of pull ?
I don't know when I'll get to shoot it, the local range is indoors, so it's been closed.

I bought this because the only 2 I found in 10 mm were this or CMMG which was double the price.
If I were going to do a standard caliber, which I might later , I would go with standard AR pistol, just for the simplicity and interchangeability of parts.

My AR's not that heavy, as it is the 80 rounds of ammo(5.56) that weighs me down.  Mine's in a yoga mat back right now with a Sono tube for a stiffener.

Originally built as a pistol, then as a rifle.  I may go back to a pistol, but am tempted to move to a 9mm.

Alf... if you really want to cut the weight, you might look at the Recover Brace I commented on... with a set of slightly taller sights, it is going to replace both a 10.5 (5.56) and 7.5 (9mm) I have for a truck gun currently...

I got the basic model without the front grip and 1913 rails...I want to go with a fixed sight gun, though a set of micro dots would be my choice if it were just a range toy.

Be REAL careful switching back and forth, this all depends on whims of ATF and my understanding is "Once a rifle Always a rifle".
In one of his Q&A's Ian, at Forgotten weapons pointed out that if you register it as an SBR you can do what ever you want.
I was at Thompson Center when they went to SCOTUS over Contender Carbines.
My understanding then was that if it was originally bought as a pistol it could be converted up to carbine, but not the other way.

That quotes a little off. It's "originally a rifle, always a rifle."

All my lowers were purchased as "other" and assembled as pistols first.  Photographed as evidence.  Taken to the range and fired as such.  Usually also posted about.  Then as a pistol I can convert to a rifle and back as desired.

When I originally decided to get this I figured I'd just buy a dedicated pistol lower and leave that way to just avoid the details.   ;D
I still might assemble a 9MM, I've got enough pistols in that caliber to make it practical.   ;D
