The only thing you need to deal with is the slight learning curve to shooting with an AR pistol buffer tube vs an AR pistol brace.
Maxim Defense Pistol System
If you 100% want to ensure you are legal and don’t want to mess around with an actual AR pistol brace, Maxim Defense has a solution for you.
If you don’t want to go the NFA route and pay an extra $200 for a tax stamp, accept other legal restrictions, or worry about if our AR pistol setup is within the allowable point system of the ATF, what is the best option? Your best bet is to employ the SAS sling method with one of the Maxim Defense Pistol System solutions.
Enter the Maxim Defense Pistol System. I have the Gen 7 CQB Pistol System for my AR pistol build. It’s extremely easy to install and with practice, easy to shoot with.
The CQB Pistol System is compatible with any MIL-SPEC lower receiver and it does not accept a stabilizing brace. For those that are looking to convert their existing CQB brace into the Pistol System, you only need the housing as your existing extension tube is compatible.
Under section 3 of the ATF scorecard where they talk about attachment methods, the standard AR-type pistol buffer tube is mentioned.
Having a standard buffer tube length (6 to 6-1/2 inches) keeps you at 0 points for the attachment methods.
The Maxim Defense CQB Pistol System measures 6 inches, so you’re good to go there.
Having the CQB Pistol System also reduces the overall length of your weapon and the length of pull.
Is the ATF banning AR pistols?
The ATF is not banning AR pistols. They are going after the stabilizing braces that attach to them. In a roundabout way though, the ATF is going after the AR pistol market.
Want to legally keep your AR pistol? Simple. Pay the $200 tax stamp and register it as an SBR. Sounds pretty simple, but does it infringe on our rights? Check out our in-depth blog on AR Pistol Laws and the Pistol Brace Ban.
The Maxim Defense Pistol System comes with a housing that allows you to attach a sling via a QD sling mount for a single-point sling.
The installation of the Pistol System and sling takes less than 15 minutes, and you don’t have to worry about the gray area with pistol stabilizing braces any longer.
As the ATF closes in on pistol braces, now is the time to make the move to the Maxim Defense Pistol System.
