    Question The Armalite AR-24 9mm Compact ?

    It looks like this one might be a real sleeper and it seems like it just might be a lot of gun for the money at MSRP of $549.00. I've only seen it in operation on GUN-TV and it looked pretty doggone good. And it got raves on the point-ability & ergonomics plus the sights look good and workable. 13 + 1 in the pipe capacity...not bad.

    Looks like some sort of Tanfoglio/CZ-75 based gun. At least the full-size one does.

    I would consider it - though I'd want to look it over personally, and so far I haven't seen one in person.

    I can do a lot better than $549.00 for 13 rounds of 9mm in a 33.4 oz. pistol with a 12 lb. DA trigger, from just about any major firearms manufacturer. Heck, I'd rather have a nice used S&W 5906 any day of the week.

    However, I bet if they stamp "TACTICAL" on the side and put a picatinny rail on it, they'd sell a boatload.

    Add a light rail and offer it in 10mm and I'll be interested.
    In their present forms and calibers, they offer nothing over the
    real deal CZs or Tanfoglio guns, other than forged frames and
    slides that some people make a big deal about.

    There was an article about them in a gun rag a few months ago. Basically, it's a CZ clone. It's also made in Turkey, like the new Stoeger Cougar. Well made, reliable guns from all the reports that will probably sell for 10%-15% below MSRP. That will put them in the $450-$475 range... not too bad.

    If you're interested, here's a link to the article... http://www.gunsmagazine.com/F04.html

    I've handled the full size model at my local gun store. Ergonomics are good, and it reminds me of a CZ 75B, with a rounded trigger guard.

    It seems well made, with decent materials. I think its an okay buy, and I'd own one if I didn't already have a pistol in that category.

    I'm not sure, however, that its much of an improvement over the CZ 75 and variants that are already on the market.

    Think I’ll just hang on to my CZ PCR, the only thing I like about the Armalite is the rounded trigger guard.

    It's a turkish CZ75 compact knock off. Id buy the CZ over the Armilite, However it is a well designed pistol.
