    Since an AR pistol, in most configurations, will NOT function without a buffer tube of some sort, the buffer tube is a part of the weapon design. So it would, logically, be included in the measurement of OAL.

    Again, here is the law:

    https://www.revisor.mn.gov/statutes/?id=624.712

    You might want to decide what configuration you would like to build and then check with your local state police barracks or assistant state's attorney to see if they can interpret the statute for you. Since they will be the ones prosecuting you if you screw up, might as well start there.

    5.56 is marginal for deer when fired from a rifle; An AR lower and carbine buffer tube is 14.5", leaving you only 11" for barrel with no flash hider. Even with a shorty pistol buffer tube, you're talking a max barrel length of 12" or 12.5". Can't say I think that would be very ethical.

    If you want to handgun hunt, use a suitable handgun and cartridge.
