    Default AR45 pistol set up :-)

    this isnt a "build".... its just a lego deal...

    special thanks to Bonno! he sent me in the right direction for the buffer set up!

    this is a AR45 upper from my good buddy Mad Machinist at Macon Armory. i picked this up from another member & decided to make it my own.

    since it was such a short barrel & i hate dealing with SBR stamps & such it was gonna be a pistol set up. taking some looks around & not wanting to spend the $ on a "sig brace"... the best alternative for a real pistol look & to get it as close to my AR 5.45 pistol was to go with this GSE set up. as mentioned, Bonno sent me the right direction & the guys at GSE had the part to me in 3 days! they were easy to deal with & the price is actually pretty low.

    naturally once you've seen how this works you go: "hell i could make that".. but learning is half the deal on this stuff.

    so you take your GSE rear tube/buffer & spring set up & install it to your lower.. lube it & go.

    the lower is a Omni Hybrid set up & it gives this a real nice look with that poly OA magazine. i chose the Omni because the magwell was "drop free" on these mags.. verses some of my own billets & a couple of Spikes Tac's that were really friggin tight.

    YES Rudy's set up comes with a mag adapter & the member i got this from very kindly included his supply of mags & this OA mag.

    ive shot Rudy's 45's on several occasions with him here at the house & at the build party's.... so i do have a little jump on someone just stepping into one.

    but for this set up i wanted to run off of the regular mag & skip the adapter. also have another OA mag comign so that ive got a pair for the "go bag". :-)

    this makes for an awesome little toy & its a real pleasure to shoot. thinking about sticking a can on the end & seeing how that sounds/works.

    just your standard crappy picture from me & the standard "Abby made" video. enjoy!

    Good man Sean.. You got her rockin. The weapon is surprisingly quiet as it sits. I would bet putting a can on it would take the sound down to almost nothing.

    hey Tim: what you think of that little mini-buffer set up? got that just for this, but it seems to work good enough that i may make or get another one just to have on hand. :-)

    those guys are down there next to you fairly close!! (GSE)

    I actually had this on my other lower with the taccon trigger...... It did work on this...

    Just as good as I get it to work on anything else.

    Sean what does that little buffer have like a super strong spring? Damn, I like that perfect for a pistol set up.. Your running Wolf and what was the other ammo you said your using? I am saving my milk money for a Thompson. Their a bit on the heavy side but ah what the hell I always wanted one. Like Rails I love anything in .45 caliber.
    Good video you put up, you kind of look like Wyatt Earp..

    Lmao... If earp was short & chunky with a hick voice....

    S&B was other ammo..

    That set up uses what looks to be a 1911 spring up inside the carrier... Makes it real short. :-)
