Building 12.5 Pistol!

Decided to build a 12.5 Pistol as something a little easier to carry in a truck or an around the house defense weapon.

Most that I saw at my LGS were expensive and did not have what I really wanted in the build.

I had a Tactical Machine Lower left from 3 I purchased at one time.

Faced the upper EXPO receiver, to get everything as straight as possible, removed about .005 to get square and flat face.

I show a pic of the upper on a flat mill vise with a square, this proves nothing for accuracy of course, but was just curious and in for the education.

You’re gonna dig it. I built a 10.5, put a forward blasting compensator on it.

I used a 1x prism scope on it. Like a red dot but with an etched reticle so you don’t lose your sight if your battery dies. This way I could avoid irons.

That allowed for a tubular handguard which looks great on a pistol build.

I put a T2 buffer in it and have had no problems shooting anything through the Odin barrel. Fun little gun.

And yeah, I’d imagine BA could pump out 300 barrels a day. They make their own, plus Aero, plus Stag, and more.
