Benefits of the AR Pistol Platform
The most obvious benefit of the AR pistol platform is that it gives you the handiness of a short barreled rifle without needing to go through the process of acquiring a Title II weapon. Going from a 16-inch barrel down to a common pistol length such as 10.5 inches makes the gun substantially more maneuverable. Such reduced length works particularly well within vehicles or close confines. The short length of the pistol platform, which combines a short barrel with a brace or simply the bare buffer tube rather than a stock, makes the overall gun very easy to pack. These AR pistols can easily fit in a duffle bag or other luggage.
