MSTN Custom BAD Vert .300 Blackout PDW AR-15 Pistol

At the 2020 SHOT Show, Battle Arms Development introduced their new “Monolithic PDW Lower Receiver + VERT® Pistol Brace with Tailhook MOD1”. I finally was able to lay my hands on this creation, and I really like it. (More ordered!) This may just be the ultimate “pistol” lower receiver. The Tailhook Mod 1 found here works much better than the slightly-too-short BAD PDW stock for me. This lower costs a tad more, sure, than the standard PDW version, but you save the $200 transfer fee on an SBR. Besides, this is a “pistol”, and you can carry it legally in a Free State as you would any other pistol. Let’s take a look at some of the components that went into this build. Note right away the V Seven fluted 10.25″ .300 Blackout SS barrel, coated Black, tucked away inside the BAD 9.5″ “RigidRail” forend. With a SF WarComp out front, it is ready for either suppressed or unsuppressed applications. The bolt carrier group is the JP FMOS with DLC coated bolt, well known to be one of the very finest. The trigger is my current favorite, the TriggerTech Adaptable Flat Trigger, adjustable from 2.0 to 5.0 LB. There’s a set of BAD push pins plus their proprietary billet bolt catch found here, as well as titanium V Seven ambi safety, mag release, and fire control pins, plus aluminum ejection port cover and pivot rod. The recoil system is BAD’s proprietary set up for the PDW lower, with a special recoil spring for handling the .300 Blackout cartridge. The charging handle is the Geissele SCH Airborne, in keeping with the weapon’s ambi theme. A Magpul Pmag especially engineered for the .300 BLK cartridge is stuffed in the mag well. My favorite RDS is on top, the Aimpoint T-2, here shown with an Aimpoint 39mm throw lever mount. Just a few ounces over five pounds with the Aimpoint. Aimpoint and mount NOT INCLUDED in the price, but can be added for $918 (MAP). No sales to States where not legal. Shipping included in the Lower 48.
