First Look: Heizer Defense PAR1 Pocket AR Pistol

In 2013, Heizer Defense introduced the PS1 Pocket Shotgun, capable of firing a single .410 gauge or .45 Colt round.

Heizer is now enhancing their design to chamber the .223 Rem. cartridge. Known as the Heizer Defense PAR1 Pocket AR Pistol, this "iPhone-sized" pistol uses the same reliable stainless steel frame as the PS1 Shotgun.

Debuting this weekend at the 2014 NRA Show in Indianapolis, the PAR1 Pocket AR Pistol also features familiar controls from the PS1 design, as well as a storage compartment in its grip.

Availability of the PAR1 Pocket AR Pistol is slated for July 2014 at an expected retail price of $449. To see the pistol in person at the NRA Show, visit Heizer Defense at Booth #6274 or stay tuned for an exclusive video right here on GunsandAmmo.com.

Guns & Ammo Rifles & Optics Editor Tom Beckstrand was on location in Idaho where he pushed the limits of the 5.56 NATO cartridge in this segment of “Long Range Tech” for Guns & Ammo TV. Pairing a SIG Sauer MCX Virtus rifle loaded with Hornady's 73-grain ELD-M ammunition, Beckstrand attempted to ring steel set at 1,270 yards, an incredible distance for any 5.56-chambered rifle and beyond the typical range for an AR-15.

The crowned muzzle is cut flush with the bushing, which was given flats around the edges. Few curves were left untouched by flats; even the bottom of the triggerguard has corners leading to the high-grip undercut. The scale motif adds striking functionality. Reviews
