Amateur here, I have to ask some rookie questions cuz I don’t have any friends that know about guns enough.
So I bought this AR pistol at a pawn shop. I think it’s a 7-in or 7.5. I’m trying to figure out if all the components in the gun are average components or higher components.
So it’s chambered in 556 and 223, I would like to take off the muzzle brake and put some sort of compressor or suppressor on it. It’s very loud a lot of the gas goes out to the side and you get a fireball out the front. I know there’s difference in things you can put on the front of it muzzle brake flash hider compressor suppressor ECT. I guess my question is what can I adapt to the front of it that would project the gas forward and reduce the loudness and the gas blast. I’m considering eventually getting a suppressor somewhere in the 3-400 hundred dollar range but then if I understand it correctly you have to get or pay for a tax stamp so that’s plus 200 and register it with the ATF?
I have a full size AR and both guns 556-223 the full size AR 16in is 223 Wade. And I believe that those barrels are threaded so I can get a 556 suppressor and put it on either gun.
The AR pistol was an impulse buy to go with my first gun purchase which was a Glock 19 Gen 3.
I liked it because it was shorter and I wanted an AR didn’t really understand that it’s more of a pistol than a AR because of its yards or range to be a shorter barrel but nonetheless I don’t have too many complaints about it I would just like to start adapting it.
One question I have is when I fire it I often hear like a zing which kind of sounds like a ricochet to me but I’m wondering if that’s just the bullet traveling through the barrel and it being shorter it’s making that zing?
Also I’m not really informed on the dynamics of how the gun operates in the sense of the gas block and I’m wondering if this gun has a way to turn up or down and I’m wondering if the zing noise is an overpowered gas block?
Also I’ve been considering another pistol brace what I have on it now is a pistol stabilizer. Of course when I look at the pistol braces they’re pretty expensive so I may just leave what I have on it. I considered a folding stock going to understand there’s a buffer tube and I have to do something with that before I put a folding stock on it.
But I’m wondering if somebody can look at the picture and just buy the picture alone tell me of the different parts and if they’re good or average and if they’re costly or not.
Sorry Total newbie here still learning all the ends and outs.
