I'm new to the whole AR thing. Purchased my first AR (Stag 8) a few months before the insanity. I've been wanting to build a few specifically a pistol. I have a Noveske 7.5" 6.8m barrel and a bolt.

Concerning uppers/lowers:

Is there anything unique about 'pistol' uppers and lowers as opposed to standard AR's?
Can one successfully build an AR pistol using non-designated pistol uppers/lowers?

I understand all the legal issues, my questions apply only to fit/finish and whatever concerns are out there.

thanks in advance.

Short answer, its all good...

No differences. Mix and match as needed (receivers).

No.

Yes.

Then you know the one prerequisite the lower must have in order to build a legal pistol, good.
