Needless to say, I was pretty happy with my purchase of a PSA 10.5 inch A.R. 15 pistol. With open sights, I was able to keep all bullets in a 4 inch group at 75 yards. In rapid fire, I could keep all shots in a 16" circle. Also no failure to feed's or failures to eject using Winchester White Box 5.56. I did wear hearing protection but it's still one loud little pistol. The only negative I can mention is the trigger is really rough. I'm hoping it will smooth out over time or it might get a replacement.

Nice, trigger will not smooth out. Milspec triggers are terrible. There was a Geissle SSA in the classifieds section for $125 not too long ago. Amazing trigger compared to the milspec, and at a good price.

That's a cool pistol. It looks like a Colt Commando clone. Those were my favorite weapons back in the day. cheers

I've got mediocre knowledge of ARs. One of mine, and one my stepson's got JP trigger spring kit. Is it a match quality trigger now? No. But both of them are way better after the trigger kits. $10 well spent.

Sweet ride that looks handy!

My favorite AR pistols have 10.5" barrels with carbine length gas tubes.
They are SOOOO much smoother than the pistol length gas systems.
I had one with a Noveske barrel that was very accurate and a favorite at the range.


Cheers,

Everyone I've let shoot my 10.5 pistol has shot them accurately. They get the big grin plinking away. A pistol ar is da bomb.

Noice! I've been thinking about getting one of these myself. Glad to hear it does not disappoint. And no, that trigger won't get better over time. Either take it out and polish all parts, or just replace it with a better one. No one has ever said "gee I wish a hadn't upgraded that trigger." LOL


What part of "shall not be infringed" don't you understand?
