Pocket PAR1 Pistol in .223 Remington (Exclusive New Photo)

photo 2

Is that a .223 Remington in your pocket or are you just pleased to see me? Heizer Defense is about to launch the  Pocket PAR1 single shot pistol chambered in .223 Remington. The gun design is similar to the .410 Heizer Defense Pocket Shotgun, but slightly longer, about half an inch, to accommodate the .223 cartridge. We will bring you more photos of this pistol from the NRA 2014 Meeting.

From the press release …

Heizer Defense the designer of the PS1 “Pocket Shotgun” Pistol has done it again.

Heizer is proud to introduce the PAR1 Pocket AR Pistol in .223 and will be showing the product to NRA members in Indianapolis.

Gary Ramey, GM/COO of Heizer Defense noted “The PAR1 Pocket AR Pistol has had an unbelievable response from the industry. The PAR1 will be a small IPhone-sized pistol chambered in .223 and use the same reliable stainless steel frame as the PS1 Pocket Shotgun Pistol. We use only certified American stainless steel with a radiussed grip that is ergonomically designed. That is a key reason our pistols are comfortable to shoot and can handle the .223 cartridge. The PAR1 is just one more step in our product extensions and planned new product launches for this year. We’ll be adding more calibers and other new firearms shortly”.

Tom Heizer, Principal of Heizer Defense commented “The PS1 has been well-received and we have a strong response for PAR1 as well. We are adding capacity to keep up with consumer demand and will launch this pistol in July. We already have orders for the PAR1 and expect a great rollout. We’ll be showing both the PAR1 Pocket AR Pistol and the PS1 Pocket Shotgun Pistol at the NRA Show in Indianapolis. We invite all attendees to stop by Booth #6274 to see the pistols”.

    This is ridiculous, .223 preforms terribly out of short barrels, also the muzzle blast on this thing would be horrendous…

    • JT

      But, if you’re pressing it up against the target, it would be useful right?

      • sianmink

        With a contact shot that would be pretty ugly.
        I’m not convinced it’d be anywhere near as ugly as a 45 colt or .410 at contact though.

    • bbmg

      If you can’t penetrate them, set them on fire :)

    • M.M.D.C.

      Practically speaking, yes, but as a marketing ploy, not so much. It certainly has our attention.

    • safddsf

      You can still deafen everyone in the room instantly for a clean escape. But no, seriously, 223 actually does fantastic out of short barrels.

  • Van the Handcannon Man

    I’m usually for anything ridiculous and new, but this? It doesn’t even look remotely useful, nor does it seem safe. Why not chamber it in 5.7×28 and have it atleast safe?

    • Chris

      I’m surprised nobody has come out with a sub compact pistol for that caliber.There is a already three different magazine loads to take advantage of too. One would think FN would have already jumped on that goldmine.

      • FourString

        well, the rounds themselves make the length of the grip longer (from backstrap to trigger). that might answer your question of why a subcompact hasn’t been done.

        28mm (5.7mm) vs. 19mm (9mm) in length

        • Christopher

          So a ten round magazine optimized subcompact version would oversized as well?
          That would also explain why H&K had problems with their 4.6×30 pistol.Other than lazy engineers.

          • Kevin Hebden

            Not to mention how bad a cartridge the 4.6mm is. So much throat erosion for so little kick!

          • Christopher

            Damn. Wonder how much money is wasted on a bullet that only works in one gun and a weapon that fires one of the most propriety of cartridges.
            Wouldn’t be surprised if in the future I read about Special Forces units switching to 5.7 mm weapons(not likely) or going with SBRs.

          • FourString

            Apparently so. The grip length.. Not much you can change about that. Would be pleasantly surprised if anyone could be clever enough to get around that.

  • jamezb

    Reminds me of a story from the happy past.
    I arrived at the range once to find a friend there with a new TC Contender and several barrels. “Want to shoot my new Contender?”
    “Sure, what barrel is it wearing?”
    “It’s a .22…”
    (I take careful aim at 30 yards..)
    (I pull the trigger…THOOOOMM!! – Huge fireball..)
    My friend laughs: “…well, a .22-250 IS a .22″
    –Now to be honest, the recoil was not bad at all with the Contender’s excellently designed grips and 8″-10″ barrel, but this thing is a squared-off stainless steel cigarette box with an inch of barrel.
    If some “friend” hands me one of these “.22′s” to shoot I think I will pass.

  • Spikey DaPikey

    Errrrm…. O.o

  • Buster Charlie

    .223 is such a horrible idea, look at the apples to apples data from ballistics by the inch.

    .223 out of a 3″ barrel (shortest one they have tested it with) 55 gr going 1147 fps = 161 Ft-lbs!

    out of the same 3″ barrel .380 Auto Smokes it! Cor Bon 90 gr. JHP = 201 ft-lbs, all other loadings either exceed .223 in muzzle energy or come within a few ft-lbs. since .380 is by many considered a marginal self-defence cartridge, I’m not sure how a single shot derringer beats 7 shots out of an automatic with better performance, never mind muzzle blast and flash…

    Hell look at .32 ACP, cor Bon has a 60 gr JHP that is pushing 60 gr at 1,074 fps = 154 ft-lbs

    Thats only 7 ft-lbs less, so in effect they’ve invented a expensive, loud, and possibly unsafe single shot .32 ACP derringer larger than any other seen before it!

    Now for more wall of shame

    .38 special = 238 ft-lbs

    9mm Makarov = 206 ft-lbs

    9mm+p 115gr JHP = 396 ft-lbs

    .357 mag = 448 ft-lbs

    10mm auto = 467 ft-lbs!

    Oh Yeah, .44 magnum = 639 ft-lbs..

    What!?

    • bbmg

      All of this.

      The only possible benefit I can see is that it might do well against an assailant wearing body armor.

      • allannon

        Given the lackadaisical performance, I’m not sure it would perform markedly better against armor.

        • bbmg

          It might not have significant muzzle energy, but it fires a pointed bullet which has a higher sectional density than most pistol bullets, so I would expect it to perform better.

          I would think performance would be very comparable to a SB193 bullet from the five seven pistol, and that can go through level IIIA body armor: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A65bLxWH3kc

          • FourString

            heh gimme the Five-seveN–much more practical with 20/30 rounds on tap in an already featherweight package

          • david

            Amen on the five-seven,I love mine. I just wish they made one in a 1911, that would b the perfect carry pistol !! I’m a small person so it’s kinda hard to hide lol

          • Denver Garkie

            they do, its called the rock island armory/armscor 1911 .22 tcm micromag 17-18 rounds higher velocity than the 5-7 pistol though the magazine well may only have space to acomodate hollow points and not spitzer

          • Risky

            .223 out of the 1-2 inch barrel of this thing won’t get you anywhere near the velocity of 5.7x28mm from a Five seveN… you’re talking about about 1000 fps from this Heizer pistol versus over 2000 fps from the Five seveN. Sectional density is less important than high velocity when it comes to penetrating soft armor. You have about as much chance as penetrating armor with that pistol as you would a .22 Magnum from NAA mini revolver.

          • http://realskill.ru Ayur Sandanov

            This. The whole point of HV ammo adoption around 1960-70s was its massive velocity allowing to use a tiny small-caliber bullet. Five-SeveN is the same in pistols – even smaller bullet, huge velocity. There’s nothing intrinsically AP in both of these, only a rebalance of velocity vs mass; and WHEN the bullet is AP, it works only on the condition of this velocity – a steel core will bounce happily at pistol speeds.

      • Some Rabbit

        ATF ban on green-tip in 3… 2… 1…
        Thanks Heizer! You assholes.

        • Sam Schifo

          5.56 M855 has an exemption from the AP core ammunition bans, just like the .30-06 M2 AP rounds. 5.56/.223 pistols have been around for many years and the ATF is well aware of them, if there was going to be a ban the ATF would have done it by now.

          • John C Sell Jr

            Thank you!!! Someone who has researched and know!

        • Cymond

          There have been pistols chambered in 223 for at least 20 years. As Sam said, M855 is exempt.

          • John C Sell Jr

            Thank you!!! Someone who has researched and knows! Too many people posting about this with no clue!

    • FourString

      Yey .44 Magnum
      Feelin’ lucky an’ shit

      edit: whoa that;s a lot of foot pounds coming out of a 115 gr 9mm o.o

      • Buster Charlie

        Cor Bon 115 gr. JHP +P is listed as pushing 1245 out of a 3″ barrel. (396 ft-lbs)

        Federal 115 gr. JHP is only pushing 1029 fps. (270 ft-lbs, still better than .223!)

        Remember Kinetic Energy is velocity squared, so that extra 216 fps apparently makes all the difference.

        To be fair to .223 I picked the highest rated ammunition they tested, but I also picked the highest rated of the other calibers, so take that for what it’s worth.

    • sianmink

      Yeah but imagine the fireball that will come out of the muzzle of this thing. Not to mention the noise!

    • Joshua

      223 is easier to come by than anything.

  • AD

    I think the idea of a small backup pistol that uses the same ammo as your primary is a good idea, but how much barrel is there actually in front of the bullet? It looks like it’s just a chamber with no barrel. I would love to get some info on how it actually performs; muzzle velocity, ballistic gelatin tests, that sort of thing.

    • allannon

      Maybe, but if your primary backup to a longarm is a single-shot pistol, ammo commonality doesn’t seem like a significant benefit. For not much increase in size (or presumably weight), you could step into a micro-9; a bit more and you’re into .40 or .45. In any of those cases, the pistol carries 5-7 rounds.

      Seems like a fair trade to me over common ammo.

      • AD

        Yeah, maybe as a secondary backup though? I guess it’s so small that if you’re lugging around a ton of equipment anyway, it’s not too hard to find room for? I dunno really.

  • JT

    The only thing I could see this thing being used for would be as a last ditch weapon firing at point blank range or as some sort of assasination weapon. The only sense this thing makes would be to push it up against the target to compensate for both the blast and the recoil. In that usage, this weapon makes perfect sense. It should go through kevlar, heavy clothing, etc. That’s really the only use I could see this thing fulfilling.

    • http://realskill.ru Ayur Sandanov

      Posters above say that it won’t penetrate anything, and will perform worse than .380 ACP. That’s not very good for all the noise it would make.

  • BryanS

    Has to be a stunt…

    • http://www.thefirearmblog.com/ Phil W “Senior Writer TFB”

      Unfortunately not. I was told about this in confidence a couple of months ago. I had a hard time believing it honestly.

    Can I get one in 7.62x54r? I’d like a pocket sized flamethrower.

    • gunslinger

    • Sadler

      There are derringers chambered in 45-70 floating around out there.

      • http://www.bluesheepdog.com/ Richard

        Nothing about that sounds even remotely fun. Can you imagine throwing a 400 grain hunk of lead downrange with one?

      no

  • 1911a145acp

    I can’t see much REAL world use for a deafeningly loud, stun grenade equivalent muzzle flash, ONE shot .223, one inch ( rifled portion) barreled pistol- but then again I said the Taurus Judge would never sell- so don’t go by me….they will probably sell thousands!

  • 1911a145acp

    I notice the frame is marked “Multi-cal” Soon, you can get the whole set! .300 BLK, 6.8 SPC, 6.5 Grendel, 204 Ruger, 7.62x39mm….

    • derfelcadarn

      When they get it up to .416 Rigby I’m in.

    • Cymond

      It’s probably the exact same frame as all of the other Heizer single shot pistols. I think they offer all of the different barrels as caliber conversion kits.

    • 1911a145acp

      Guys- I guess I shuold have put a sarcasm font in the above post I made…..

  • Billy___Bob

    Tracer rounds would let you adjust your aim.

    • Cymond

      … the aim that you lose when you reload the single-shot pistol.

      Maybe my sarcasm detector is malfunctioning today.

  • Jeremy Star

    I’ll give them this – They can market the hell out of complete crap.

    I’ve seen the HD derringers in person and they are ridiculously big for a 2 shot (or in this case 1 shot) pistol. You can pick up any number of tiny .380 and 9mm pistols with 3x the ammo capacity and the capability of quicker reloads via magazines. (And usually better sights as well.) Most of them are maybe slightly bigger than these HD monstrosities. Derringers are for super deep concealment when you can’t get away with anything bigger. If your Derringer is as big as an LCP, why bother?

    • Sulaco

      HD is selling it seems to me what’s left design after the lawsuit with a company that now makes a rather less well regarded two shot .45 derringer. Fight was over the design and manufacture of these as I remember…

  • big daddy

    I wonder if my hand and arm will be on fire? It would be more of a flame thrower.

  • iksnilol

    Well, they could make it in 7.62×39 with a 8 or 10 inch barrel + a good grip and it would make a nice hunting gun.

    This? Not so much. Might as well have a .22 derringer.

  • Sulaco

    I don’t want to see more photo’s of the gun…I want photo’s of the gun going off in the dark!

  • Some Rabbit

    Oh great, give the ATF an excuse to ban M855 Green tip as armor piercing because there’s a handgun chambered for it.

    Let me add that IMHO Heizer (and their copy-cat rival) guns regardless of chambering are pointless and butt ugly.

    • Emir Parkreiner

      AR-15 pistols have been around for quite some time and the ATF has already ruled that M855 is not AP.

      • totenglocke

        Why does M855 get a pass and 7N6 and similar ammo don’t? Because of f-ing country of origin, that’s why. We really need to get the ATF to actually be controlled by laws and not the whims of whoever sits at the top of the ATF.

        • Emir Parkreiner

          It has nothing to do with the country of origin and everything to do with 18 USC sec. 921(a)(17)(b). M855 has a steel penetrating tip and does not meet the criteria stated in (17)(b)(i).

  • Anonymoose

    They do know April Fool’s was 3 weeks ago, right?

  • who cares?

    I’m sorry comrades in firearms, but I just don’t get this. One shot derringer type guns are stupid to begin with. This idiocy, with such potential for over-penetration has no rationale for existence. What on earth was Heizer smoking?

    • http://realskill.ru Ayur Sandanov

      On the plus side, it wouldn’t penetrate anything, much less overpenetrate. 5.56 works on velocity, and there’s none here.

  • dan citizen

    A gun manufactured entirely out of stupid.

  • Hunter57dor

    Let’s just hope the ATF doesn’t ban it for being an incendiary/flash bang/flame-thrower device.

    although, I imagine getting shot at by the light of one thousand suns would be enough to make me think about my life choices.

  • Nimrod

    Everybody understands that these are not good for much of anything other than for the novelty of having it. It’s a novelty. People will buy it because of that and years from now we will read about and say, hmmm, that was interesting buy not very useful.

  • Will

    Some of the dumbest shit ever to hit the market.
    1. Single shot pistol.
    2. Two shot pistol.
    3. Pistol caliber rifles.
    4. Rifle caliber pistols, combined with #1 above.
    Would make a great conversation piece / paper weight / door stop.

    • ArcRoyale

      Well, single and double shot pistols came before all other kinds of handguns, so…

        Die plz.

        • Emir Parkreiner

          No thank you.

        • Cymond

          Hey, if the mods won’t remove the spam, the least we can do is reply to it with joke-spam. I found it amusing, sorry you didn’t.

          • ArcRoyale

            I thought it was just another spam.

  • Blake

    If a 5mm caliber pistol is the goal, then 5.7x28mm or .22 TCM would have made a lot more sense (or even 5mm RMR). .223R’s extra powder capacity is wasted with such a short bbl.

    The only .223 handgun I’d buy looks like this. Well, my cousin has an XP-100, but that’s pushing the definition of a handgun…

  • Emir Parkreiner

    It’s always nice to see a company that doesn’t discriminate against the mentally challenged when hiring.

  • mosinman

    make it in .50AE and I’ll take one. (don’t forget the Tiger stripes!)

  • Adam

    Call me when they make it in 7.62x54R.

  • Cymond

    Would be a great conversation piece. If I already had one of the Heizer pistols, I’d probably buy the 223 barrel just for fun.

    It would be hilarious if someone threaded the barrel and attached a suppressor.

    Now that I think about it, it’s only purpose is to be a conversation piece. Look at all this conversation in this thread! Seriously, it’s more publicity than practicality.

  • Gabe

    This seems unnecessary, rifle rounds are meant to be fired out of rifle barrels. A magnum handgun round would have probably fit better in this particular platform.

  • Noir

    They sell it as a flamethrower with some additional lead in the action..

  • Dick is a Dick

    Jesus christ no. There is nothing that isn’t wrong about this.

  • J.T.

    I hope this idiotic company goes out of business soon.

  • greensoup

    Its not a gun its a flame thrower. My AR pistol with a 7 inch barrel puts out a blinding orange fireball. 3 inch barrel… well that will be interesting.

  • Pete Zebich

    Better be a good shot because you only get one chance.

  • Redniner

    Now that is a genuinely stupid idea!

  • Pig Farmer Bill

    This is nuts, just get a .38, or a 9mm, anything but this. This is 007 stuff.

  • zebra dun

    Burns the target alive as well as deafens and blinds them and then perforates them.
    Also replaces a flashlight for illumination.

  • Billca

    Great. They make a stupid idiotic pistol and the BATF will claim that 5.56mm Green Tip ammo is armor piercing and will fit in a pistol, then ban the sales of it.
    Great going guys! Up yours! and your pistol!

  • Hank Seiter

    Morons. You just handed the BATFE a reason to ban 5.56mm as pistol ammo than can penetrate police body armor … not that our increasingly militarized police forces need more legal protection from law abiding citizens.

      Please read the latest comments, they adress your concerns.

  • Hank Seiter

    I’m sure the James Bonds of the world are tying up their 1-800 line.

  • Sonokar

    Gun ‘enthusiasts’ will buy anything, eh?

  • JJTX

    HA! Pocket flame thrower!

    I want one. But not for what it will cost.

  • Vincent Brennan

    My .223 single shot works great….it has a 14″ barrel (about the same as a M4 Carbine) but it works great. Called a Contender :-)

  • GinAZ

    Stupidity pure stupidity. With the current socialist in power these idiots have now given those bastards another reason to over regulate or flat out take away another type of ammunition. Don’t think that the current regulation on steel penetrator can’t be changed. This only appeals to gadget whores who have to have the latest toy, this toy could have waited for a more gun friendly administration was in office

  • me ohmy

    flamethrower pocket pistol… it’ll waste about 80% of the powder.

  • Airman596

    I would like to see the muzzle blast on that. I suppose if you miss the bad guy, you could light him on fire.

    Some of the comments on here are similar to the “hurr shooting somebody with a 22 pistol is just gonna piss them off durr” comments that people used to throw around. If you think there aren’t thousands of graves filled with the bodies of people killed by a 22 mouse gun youre an idiot. There have been people killed by a single 25 bullet and others who have been shot repeatable with a 45 and lived. Ballistics are not always the determining factor in a guns efficiency. I’m sure that the general idea behind the concept is that after all the gun grabber fear campaigning of last year that now everybody and their grandma has an AR-15 and a small stockpile of 223 ammo. It’s just (1) economical and (2) clearly meant to be a novelty.

  • Wild Bill

    The .410 model is a better option. And you can keep two rounds of 45LC in the handle.
