    Default AR pistols in combat

    Hey I was just wondering if an AR pistol type weapon has ever been used by the drivers of vehicles, like straped to the dash of a Humvee. I know they had a cut down M16A2 that they used in APCs, also would this be tactically advantageous?

    AR pistols are sort of a odd ball. Not really a pistol and no longer a rifle. They can be used effectively with special training, but that would leave the average soldier out. SBRs are completely different. Any tactical advantage, IMHO, probably would be some special need that would be unique to a specific situation.

    Thanks Minion, I was trying to figure out how it was to be used. I traded my upper off for a 6.8 SPC varminter. Interesting piece but a odd duck for me.

    As a silenced SBR and a drum mag, I think they would be the cats meow for room clearing/urban combat.


    Minion, the M3 as in grease gun? I was T/Oed on that. Would never want to **** it. It was supplied to Ontos crewman.

    Still in the inventory as the Brad still has the Ramp Ports. Imagine it with an Piccatinny upper and a Beta Mag, short rail handguard
