The AR pistol is enjoying unprecedented levels of acceptance among shooters of all types, including quality instructors. This was starting to happen before the release of the Sig SB15 Pistol Brace but the brace’s arrival solidified the current interest in the AR pistol.
You may recall a previous post where I broke the news of BCM’s work with AR pistols. That post mentions that Pat Rogers of EAG Tactical was working with AR pistols to see how viable they were. Well, he has recorded some of his thoughts and experiences on Lightfighter and recently he posted an image of at least one of his BCM built AR pistols. It’s a really stinkin’ nice pistol.
The pictured pistol features a ton of BCM gear which isn’t surprising. I see a KMR Rail, GUNFIGHTER Comp, GUNFIGHTER Grip, and, of course, a BCM upper/lower. The Magpul AFG is a conservative choice given the BATFE’s stance on vertical grips on a pistols with an OAL of 26″ or less (I don’t know the OAL on this pistol). Pat Rogers’ affinity for the bomb-proof Aimpoint T1 is well known so it is no surprise to see one in use here.
