    probably not, unless you really really want a cheap 10" pistol. it'll be completely uninteresting to shoot.

              ....anon do you honestly think that that hypothetical $400 anderson complete pistol is going to ever in its life have a suppressor mounted to it?

              Also for the record it was 55gr AAC that had the jacket separation issues.

                Yes, but thanks for the clarification on which ammo was causing the issues.

                Well then if I were you I'd strongly consider a nicer upper.

                Extreme budget short-barrel AR uppers tend to come overgassed as frick, they basically make up for worse tolerances elsewhere by gaping the frick out of the gas port to achieve decent unsuppressed reliability. Putting a can on a gun like that is going to significantly shorten the already relatively short lifespan of the upper AND dump a frickload of gas right into your eyes and mouth every single shot you fire.

                And to be clear, this isn't brand snob shit, I have a 2-stamp 10.3" build on a PSA lower, all the money went into the upper, and it's a pretty fricking nice-shooting gun. But a big part of how I achieved that was by building the upper from the ground up with suppressed shooting in mind. It's not a reliable gun without the can on it but it runs line a sewing machine without being gassy as frick suppressed.

    You shouldn't get as short as 10". 11.5" is the optimal length for 5.56mm carbines.

      Five Five Sex is highly velocity dependent. Anything other than a 20" barrel is basically a gloried airsoft toy unless you were planning on getting an upper in 300blk in which case I'm not sure why you wouldn't just start from scratch and incrementally build it over time but for cheap and with superior parts.

    I generally don't see the use of extremely short rifles, and I can't speak to the quality of any of Andersons firearms.

      Notraining, to address a threat indoors potentially wearing soft armor or utilizing cover. I just wouldn't go with a 5.56 unless it's a bullpup, the round sucks ass out of short barrels.

        What stuff specifically are you doing with a 10 inch barrel that you're struggling to do with a 20 inch barrel though?

    That's half the barrel length needed to get decent performance out of that caliber. 5.56 needs 20" of barrel, I really wouldn't cut it below 18". 10" is way too little, might as well shoot .22lr

    Nah, buy a psa dagger, ruger american gen 2, a maverick 88 combo, or tisas 1911. Or save up 200 dollars more and actually get an "okay" AR like a ruger mpr or something.

        Right now, a compliant used AR-15 goes for about $2,500 starting in most of Silicon Valley. Almost all the gun stores have been removed except for Big 5 and Dicks. There's like 2 LGSes left and a new AR is gonna be $3,000. The alternative is driving out to Fresno or Bakersfield which is $200 in gas because gas is $5.36. LA is better but LA has more demand.

        Finding a legal buyer is much harder, let alone a legal buyer that is willing to have it done at an FFL or finding an FFL willing to do random 10-day waits for people he doesn't know. This alone costs about $75-100 before the $50ish in state fees added plus 8.75% VAT. You'd be surprised at the amount of people with DUIs that get their state check failed. California prosecutes most DUIs as felonies now and the judges will use the DOJ/DOC background check history as part of their record expurgement decision .. which means they won't do it if they see them trying to buy a gun.

        Vice versa if you do find a buyer and he does something illegal with it, California allows them to sue you the seller in civil courts if you are also a CA resident.

          JFC. I didn't know shit was that bad out there. Grabbed an AR about a year ago for 1k USD from sportsman warehouse in fresno. Slightly overpaid imo but frick it.
          >big5
          I remember going to a local big5 and they stopped selling guns. Only pellet/bb/airsoft now. Ammo was absurdly marked up too. Don't even do the license test there now too. Idk if its new policy or just that store that just doesnt want to bother. Funny part is it's where I picked up my shitstick and sig 522.

    I'd argue a $250-$300 G22 or 23 with $100 left over for ammo/holster/mags/9mm conversion barrel is better value than a shit-tier AR Pistol.
