Wilson Combat Introduces its ARP AR Pistol

posted on January 19, 2016
The Wilson Combat ARP (AR Pistol) Tactical Pistol is an outstanding choice for home or vehicle defense and exhibits the legendary accuracy and attention to detail our tactical rifles are known for. This AR receiver based firearm is legally defined as a pistol in most states and uses the time-tested, direct impingement gas system that has given the classic AR platform a reputation for accuracy and reliability for almost 50 years.

The ARP Tactical uses the same premium Wilson Combat components as our tactical rifles and can also be ordered ready for suppressed use. Features like our famous Tactical Trigger Unit, NP3 Bolt Carrier group, and your choice of time tested Armor Tuff finish complete this practical package. We are very pleased to offer the Shockwave pistol brace as standard furniture for this pistol. The lightweight Shockwave brace helps stabilize the pistol when properly used and is also user adjustable for length.

Why Buy An AR Pistol?

AR-platform pistols can have several advantages over NFA regulated firearms in terms of interstate transport and ease of purchasing. New innovations like the Shockwave AR pistol brace also enable stable one-handed shooting when used as designed. AR Pistols are smaller, lighter and more maneuverable than an AR carbine and can be more easily stowed in a car, boat or on a motorcycle.

Where Are AR Pistols Legal?

AR platform pistols are legal in most states where AR-15 rifles are legally purchased. These are typically purchased just like any other handgun. Check with your local dealer regarding the laws in your specific state.

Is The Shockwave Brace Legal To Put On This Pistol?

Yes-the Shockwave pistol brace is legal to use as long as it is used in accordance with the intent in which it was designed and should not be used to shoulder the pistol.
