The tenth Installment of Build of the Week was contributed by Hoplopfheil. So long as you are not clearing a room with a teammate, loud and massive muzzle flashes are fun. I am definitely becoming more and more a fan of AR/AK “pistols” as time goes on, especially if I can suppress them. Extra points to Hoplopfheil for naming his weapons; all true weapons should be named…
In any case, keep the submissions coming in! We are publishing them in the order in which they were received (with the exception of a single person submitting back to back–those will get spread out).
You can submit your own build at https://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/build-of-the-week-submission/
AR Pistol “Dodongo”
This started as an attempt to make the cheapest possible AR pistol, but then it evolved into a test bed for various interesting parts. Current configuration:
Barrel: 7.5″ AR Stoner .223 Wylde 1:7
Upper & Lower: Anderson
Handguard: UTG Pro Super Slim 7″
-Magpul K grip and trigger guard, OD Green
-KAK Shockwave Blade tube and pistol brace, OD Green
Charging Handle: BCM Gunfighter
Sights: UTG Pro flip up irons
Optic: Truglo Tru-Tec 20mm red dot (sometimes)
Muzzle: Doublestar Carlson TacComp
This thing is loud and ridiculous; the muzzle flash is longer than the gun itself, but it’s so fun and handy that I shoot it more than my other ARs.
