jtallen83 Posted May 16, 2015 Report Share Posted May 16, 2015 (edited) This "Pistol" followed me home from a gun show today; Yep, it's a pistol! I've been so happy with my PM400 I decided to step it up a notch or so. I've been pestering all the local dealers for a price on the new ArmaLite pistols but couldn't even get a possible date when they would have a firm price let alone actually get one so I decided to try a piston gun. My first impression is that I'm impressed. The fit and finish is great for an AR rifle. The Phase 5 buffer tube is different than my PM400 and a welcome addition. The spacer puts the "brace" in exactly the right position for me. Coincidentally the LOP needed to fit my arm is the same for my shoulder, ::) not that I would ever fire the weapon from my shoulder and risk creating an instant SBR :strokin: :hornet: The ambi safety and mag release are a big plus as well. The biggest downside I see so far is the VERY crappy trigger, designed by a lawyer for sure with what feels like a 10 pound pull. It has major creep and is extremely gritty all the way through. A Geiselle trigger will be the first upgrade for sure! Looks like the suppressor bill will be left to die in the Iowa senate this year :angry: :yup: but if they ever do get it passed the 4 position gas block will allow for some real quiet shooting. With a heavy schedule this weekend I won't get a chance to wring it out till the holiday so I'll report back then on what I find, I'm thinking they will be thrilled to have it at our new indoor range >:D Edited May 16, 2015 by jtallen83 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
