I told you about Midwest Industries’ new line of AR Pistols and new AR Pistol Buffer Tube yesterday. I was able to round up even more details on the buffer tube and, on paper, it is pretty exciting.
The MI AR Pistol Buffer Tube is similar to other tubes on the market in that it has a shoulder for the SB15 Arm Brace to rest against in order to increase the length of pull and it uses a standard end plate and castle nut which provides several rear sling mounting options.
However, it has also 2 features that make it stand out. First, it is long enough that the rear of the tube sits flush with the rear of the SB15. This completely fills the void at the rear of the SB15 to provide more rigidity and it is long enough to bring an AR pistol with a 10.5″ barrel to 26″ overall length so you can install a vertical grip (see here for details)! Second, the tube is mil-spec diameter behind the threads which means that most clamp style rear sling mounts can be used.
This looks like a great option for those who are building an AR Pistol. Check out the new MI AR Pistol Buffer Tube at Midwest Industries.
