    Is it legal to put a sling on a AR pistol? I'm just curious with the one hand, two hand, makes it pistol vs rifle.

    Yep, perfectly legal. You can use it as a 'tension stock' by pulling away from your body you stabilize the pistol.
    I run a single point on mine.


    Also, it is a pistol because it has a short barrel and no stock, which is INTENDED to be fired with one hand or both hands in the same position. You can't add a forward grip because that makes it an AOW, but you can still hold it there.

    Thanks. :wavey:

    I have a Vtac on it now, but I want to be sure. I know about stocks and forward grips, just wasn't sure about the sling.

    I only have 150-200 rounds through it so far, and have only shot it at 40 yard's. I put around 10 rounds through it on the bench to bring the sight in to where I was satisfied, about 2". And I've kept the grouping within 8"-9" standing with a pretty fast trigger pace.
    It does just what I want it to do for the moment, it's fun, and fast. :wavey:
