ORION 9mm AR-15

It always excites me to learn of new players and products in the field of AR-15 rifles, carbines and pistols. The latest to catch my interest is the Orion 9mm AR-15 product lineup. It’s common knowledge here on AR-15 TACTICAL that I completely embrace pistol caliber AR-15 carbines, especially those chambered in 9mm.

The 9mm cartridge  is standard issue to many law enforcement for use with duty sidearms, the United States Military M9 pistol and probably the most popular centerfire pistol cartridge in the world. This commonality guarantees easy to locate and inexpensive ammunition for shooters everywhere.

ORION 9mm AR-15 Product Lineup

Orion Guns offers a full line of 9mm AR-15 products that include complete 9mm AR-15 rifles, complete 9mm AR-15 upper receivers, complete and stripped 9mm AR-15 lower receivers and 9mm AR-15 barrels. What is not clear about Orion Guns is whether they actually manufacture any 9mm AR-15 hardware themselves or assemble hardware from other manufacturers. I suspect the answer is somewhere in the middle. The pictures on the Orion Guns website as well as the website appear to be home brew.

Judging from the pictures on the website I suspect Orion is producing 9mm AR barrels and combining them with hardware from other manufacturers as necessary. Nothing wrong with any of this. In fact I praise and encourage them for recognizing a void and diving in. Orion Guns must be doing something right because I learned of them from Brownells. Click here for more information and ordering.

ORION 9mm AR-15 Barrels

The Orion AR-15 Barrels Chambered in 9mm are available in 5″, 8″, 10.5″ & 16″. Made of 4140 Chrome Moly Steel and black nitride finished, these barrels are heat treated and stress relieved. They are stress relieved once again after the button rifling process. All barrels threaded 5/8-24 with a 1-10 twist.

Orion offers 9mm AR-15 uppers with the following barrel lengths, 3-inch, 5-inch, 8-inch, 10.5-inch and 16-inch. The uppers are available with knurled tubular, quad-rail and standard two piece A2 style handguards.

ORION 9mm Lower Receivers

The Orion 9mm lowers appear to be assembled to a price point. My preference would be a Hahn 9mm magazine block and KNS anti-rotation pins installed on the lower. Note use the KNS anti-rotation pins on all 9mm AR rifles. Visit our 9mm rifle project that closely resembles the Orion offerings

The JP AR15 9mm Lower Receiver Kit GMR 13 is a great starting point for a new 9mm build. By accepting Glock G17 9mm magazines, this lower allows for the ultimate in sidearm & rifle compatibility.  Combined with the JP 9mm AR-15 Bolt Carrier and Silent Captured Spring, you can have a unique 9mm build running smoothly and reliably.  The lower fits standard AR-15 upper receivers, as well as grips, triggers and buttstocks.  Large magazine release allows for quick magazine changes.  Receiver includes magazine catch, ejector, bolt catch and necessary pins & springs.  Does not include trigger group.

For the home builder with a 9mm project, this GMR-13 billet lower receiver accepts Glock G17 magazines and will mate to any Mil-spec compatible upper receiver. This kit includes all exclusive mag. catch, bolt catch and ejector components required for function.

About the GMR-13 Platform – courtesy JP Rifles

Whether as a complete carbine, upper or lower assembly, the GMR-13™ 9mm is a versatile platform that excels in both function and accuracy. The GMR-13™ is available with either our JP-15™ or PSC-11™ upper receiver for a blowback-operated carbine that includes our 9mm Silent Captured Spring standard. The end result is a system that cycles with virtually no recoil, allowing for extremely fast sight recovery with solid 3 MOA accuracy from a pistol cartridge usable out to 100 yards.

With the high-performance ammunition available from many manufacturers, the GMR-13™ makes a solid choice for a competitive match carbine (especially considering the cost savings of 9mm ammo over .223) and is also well-suited to home defense applications given its impressive .357 magnum-comparable ballistics with a carbine-length barrel. The lack of concussion in enclosed spaces and greatly limited over-penetration issues when compared to most rifle cartridges only enhance its suitability in this arena.

Designed from the start with the needs of law enforcement in mind, the GMR-13™ accepts the same G17 pistol magazines as Glock 9mm pistols for carbine/sidearm compatibility and is also available in select-fire configurations. Built on the PSC-11™ upper receiver platform with its dual charging systems, the GMR-13™ readily accommodates those with training backgrounds on either the HK or AR-15 platform. Also available for military and law enforcement, the complete rifle package includes our own JP select-fire trigger setup for precision trigger control in both semi- and full-auto modes. As with all JP rifles, the GMR-13™ comes with parts and service readily available from a trusted US manufacturer.
