I'm not AI, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night.

I also carry a 7.5" AR for a living. As long as it isn't a piece of trash and is assembled correctly with quality components and matched with decent ammo, you should have no issues.

Here is my Noveske Diplomat/DDM4 patrol SBR...

I'm just seeking information and want to know your reasoning. Would adding a can make a difference or change your choice?

Pretty much what Cochese said.

As long as its a quality, known manufacturer, you'll have no issues. I put only 5.56 pressure ammo through my rifles anyway, but .223 could cause some cycling issues due to the lower operating pressure.

I went with a 7.5" because I had an 11.5", and I was really disappointed that the overall length was 2 1/2 inches shorter than my 14.7" pinned AR.........so I went as small as I could go.

For a PDW's intended purpose, the 7.5" will do. Its HIGHLY concealable, and at its intended ranges of 0-50 meters (maybe even as far as 100m), it offers a high capacity rifle capable of defeating soft armor.

You can't go wrong with a Noveske Diplomat upper, or a Sig 516 PDW upper.

I do appreciate the fact that my piston Sig offers me a suppressed setting for when I get my suppressor, however, Noveske's can be had with a Switchblock that does the same thing as the gas regulator on my Sig 516 or my LWRC REPR.

Another PSA build, went all old-school bare bones with this one. All PSA gear, with the exception of the Mega lower, and a Bravo Co. BCG in this one. Really digging the classic carry-handle look.

Current AR family...

Black Rifle Forum

Left to right;

1) The one I just finished.

2) BCM middy, MOE gear, YHM BUIS, currently wearing a Strikefire I'm trying out.

3) PSA KISS carbine, all PSA gear, MOE stock, DD fixed rear sight.


In case you hadn't noticed, lol, I don't like piling a bunch of crap on my rifles.

Very sleek.

Nothing wrong with the KISS concept, and your new A3 is quite elegant.

I just ordered an LE6920 that looks like that. I'm going to keep it stock, love that look.

I just finished another rifle just like this except the only non-PSA item is the BCM bolt carrier group.

I am going to cut the barrel down to 12 in. and I'm looking for one of those old school mounts for a red dot that puts it forward of the carry handle sight.

Your build looks great!

Sweet, look forward to seeing that.

It's true what they say, ARs are Barbies for men, lol. And while it's great that there's so much available to us, to personalize & set up these rifles to our exact tastes, it's all to easy to just keep adding doo-dads and gadgets.

While lugging around that super cool looking boat anchor, it's easy to forget how light, manageable & effective the platform is in it's basic trim.

Agreed. It's my first AR and I've wanted one all my life. I've been into pistols and skeet/upland birds for 30 years or so, so I'm not a firearm noob. I bought the Colt to learn everything I can about these rifles and maybe put one together myself someday. I'll post pics next week (it's being delivered Tuesday).

Very smart way to go for your first jump into ARs. Start with a basic, but high quality rifle. Learn the platform, and go from there.

All that's left is a Troy QD socket for my sling, a new ALG trigger, and waiting on Magpul to finally release the new version of the XTM panels and the handstop kit.

Looks kinda like one of the new thorntail mounts, though I haven't really been keeping up on the latest AR accessories. I've been thinking about getting one, a little more streamlined than what I'm running now.
