    Its short..5" barrel. This one has the Troy collapsible stock.
    It's light.
    It's 9mm and can use the 20 round Colts style mags if you are cramped for space or the longer 32 round mags if you aren't.

    It has a single point sling on the stock. You can hang it under your arm and cover it up with a shirt to conceal it if need be.

    I chose the Trijicon MRO Rd Dot sight. Although it isnt cheap, you can just leave it on for 5 years and not have to worry about it.

    It is an SBR and at 25 yards it will obliterate the bulls eye. At 100 yards it'll put all on a B27 target without much effort. Its small enough to go in a pack or sit on your lap in the truck when times are hard.

    I have a 3 lug mount on it for easy on/off of a suppressor.

    I love this little gun.



    Another pic shown with a standard AR for size comparison.

    That one looks like a lot of fun HG. I keep thinking about building a 9mm AR pistol, but then I price it out, and there isn't much difference from a CZ EVO. So I am torn on which large pattern 9mm pistol to go with.

    The next AR however, will probably involve one of these:

    Nice set of AR's! I own several AR's of different flavors but one of my favorites is my Stag Arms dedicated 9 mm that takes the Colt/ Uzi mags! It is amazing how many AR fans have not tried a 9 mm version! Once they do many are hooked! My love for them started back in the mid 90's when the agency I worked for got some of the Colt Sub-Guns in 9 mm w/ 3 shot burst. They are amazingly accurate inside 100 yds and easy to keep on target! Another bonus is they are a breeze to clean after a long range day!

    AR variants are the LEGO blocks of the firearm world. With a bit of imagination, you can build almost anything... that shoots!

    10mm AR = .41 Magnum autoloading carbine? Oh, that's just toooo cool! I want full-ballistic reporting.

    I've built a few already for people... and even a couple of .40's.

    To me, a 10mm carbine would be a wicked little shooter. The people that have them love them. The Quarter Circle 10 GLF (Glock large frame) will do both the .45 and the 10mm...in fact all you would have to do is switch the barrels out.

    With a 16 " barrel it would easily take deer.

    What about the ones that are mainly parts guns. The ones you do not care about fit or finish. The ones that look like hell to start with, because if you run with them long enough they are going to get scarred up. The ones that all you care about is durability and enough accuracy to do the job. And generally do not want much in them, for if they get broken up, or end up in a lake you can walk off and leave them and are not going to worry much about them. These are my favorites.

    10mm carbine is new to me, and for deer/hogs would be nice.

    And it works very well for both. Plus, you have the option of loading a 180 grain bullet to 1000 fps for suppressed use with a bullet that expands to about the size of a nickle even at suppressed speeds, unlike a lot of suppressed rifle bullets.

    Then you have both quiet and deadly.

    My purpose built AR's . Stag arms 16" carbine for outdoor/distance use. Andro Corp upper /Anderson lower pistol 7" barrel for close in and automotive use. Much easier to swing a AR pistol inside even a truck cab and in my state it is still a pistol which falls under my chl permit.
    Sasha had to get into the pic too.
