If you’re a fan of AR pistols but want something that packs a little more oomph than the common pistol-caliber guns, Anderson Manufacturing has you covered. The gun maker’s AM-10 Breacher is an AR pistol chambered in 308 Winchester, making it well worth a look if you want the portability of an AR pistol, but in a rifle caliber.
