This straight-pull, bolt-action pistol is called the Solo 300 for a reason.
In a video coming from the YouTube channel "Rolling Blackouts," we see an especially unique pistol.
By reverting to a straight-bolt, bolt action, the man in the video below was able to remove all the parts needed to operate a gas-powered AR-15.
As you're about to hear, this gun doesn't use a gas block, a gas tube, a handguard, an AR charging handle, a bolt catch, a buffer tube, a buffer or a spring. Plus, it uses a polymer upper and lower, since there's no concern for the stress that comes from shooting a semi-automatic.
As a result, he's successfully built a .300 Blackout pistol on an AR-15 platform that weighs about 38 ounces, which is about the same as a 1911 pistol.
Watch the video below:
As he mentioned, anyone could build a .300 BLK AR pistol like this for only a few hundred dollars.
It's definitely worth pointing out that the touch of the threaded barrel is a huge help, too, as this gun would be a ton of fun to suppress.
Additionally, it's sure to grab the attention of a few Star Wars fans, since it looks strikingly similar to Han Solo's blaster.
This one has a left-side charging handle, but lefties could easily get around that during their build.
