Stern Defense SD Mod 4 9mm AR-15 Upper Receiver

I noticed the SD Mod 4 9mm AR-15 Upper Receiver on Brownells new product section so I spent a bit of time researching Stern Defense. I didn’t learn much. The only thing I was able to determine besides their contact information is that they are a pistol caliber AR-15 hardware manufacturer, and as regular visitors know we are big proponents of the platform. If anyone has feedback on the hardware or company please drop us a line!

The Stern Defense SD Mod 4 9mm Upper Receiver is a complete, ready to go, upper receiver solution for those looking to spend less time building and more time shooting.

The 4 inch, 1-10 twist, Melonite finish barrel, is free float in a 4in M-LOK handguard attached to a 7075-T6 forged aluminum receiver.
On the end of the barrel mounted on the ½-36 threads is a 1.75” long, 1.2” diameter blast can designed to direct the short barreled blast away from the shooter.

  • 4in barrel
  • 4in M-LOK Free Float handguard
  • Complete assembly with 9mm bolt and charging handle
  • ½-36 muzzle thread pitch
  • 1.75” long by 1.2” diameter blast can muzzle device

9mm Barrel

Stern 9mm barrels are ideal for gun lovers who want to build their own custom dedicated 9mm AR15 upper group. Our barrels offer an advantage over the competition. Every stern defense barrel throat is machined deeper for a longer free bore to accommodate bullets with a longer ogive. We have found that some common defense rounds jam into the rifling before the round is fully chambered. Some of the barrels on the market do not accommodate this and will potentially result in nasty malfunctions, resulting in a round being stuck in the chamber requiring manual methods to clear the malfunction.

Note: Barrel comes with locating pin installed.

ORION 9mm AR-15 | 9mm AR Lower | 9mm AR Upper

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 9mm AR-15 Upper Receivers

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
