Backyard “Plinker” Pistol
By Gordon Duff, Senior Editor
This is my second SigTac build, my first in 5.56mm. For those who don’t know, using the SigTac “arm brace” allows the equivalent of a short barreled rifle to be built without permission from local law enforcement. SBR’s can’t be carried across state lines though every cop has one. The problem with the SigTac version is that it typically doesn’t allow adjustments to use sights or optics. However, KAK Industries buffer tubes make allowances for that with extra length, spacers and a built in “set back.”
The parts in this build, 10.5: Wylde .223/5.56mm bbl, chrome lined, KAK flash can, AIM bolt and carrier, Palmetto lower, AIM upper and assorted add on’s. The rail is UTG, inexpensive.
The purpose here…this is “quick and dirty.” This will pour out lead, be exceptionally accurate and is, for its purpose very inexpensive. I am displeased with the UTG rail, it is unstable.
