BSF Barrels builds their 9mm Luger AR-15 carbon fiber barrels with the same care that goes into a top-quality match barrel to ensure that you’ll achieve the best possible accuracy from your AR pistol, SBR, or carbine. All BSF barrels are turned from ordnance-grade 416R stainless steel, then given a roll-wrapped, tensioned, carbon fiber sleeve. The sleeve keeps weight down while providing excellent rigidity, plus enhanced cooling.
The ELF AR-9 Drop-In Match Trigger has been built for performance. Specifically developed for 9mm and .45 PCC platforms, after tens of thousands of rounds of testing in all platforms, the boss has decided this is the best trigger we have ever produced and does it all in every AR platform. It has a u-shaped captured disconnector that forces a positive hold on the hammer and also has a “pad” that matches up to an extension on the hammer. The pad is directly in line with the rear trigger pin so when the hammer is stopped by those matching surfaces it effectively eliminates trigger slap from the hammer hitting the disconnector and greatly enhances the feel of the trigger during live fire.
The Yankee Hill Machine 9mm Bolt Buffer YHM-925-A designed for carbine AR-15 stocks is manufactured from high quality stainless steel and features extra weight and length for 9mm AR’s. The added length helps prevent breakage of the bolt catch. Includes a mil. spec. bumper. The buffer weight is 5.9 oz which places it between the 5.4 oz H3 and 6.08 oz VLTOR A5-H3 buffers.
I could probably devote an entire website to Aero Precision’s various AR-15 combos, specials and one of a kinds. Anyhow, this time Aero Precision is combining their fantastic threaded M4E1 AR-15 upper receiver with their Atlas S-One handguard. The AERO PRECISION ATLAS S-ONE M4E1 AR-5 THREADED ASSEMBLED UPPER system is designed to match seamlessly creating an upper so sleek it rivals the rigidity and appearance of a monolithic upper. At $199 the system comes in cheaper than many quality handguards alone.
The PWS MOD2 Carbine H3 Buffer is perfect for shooters who need to reduce cyclic rate or dampen recoil. The fluted design features minimal contact points within the buffer tube allowing trapped debris to easily clear. The steel buffer body is protected by a slick salt bath nitride finish for smoother cycling and resistance to corrosion.
I titled this post “Why you need a 9mm AR15 now! to grab readers attention and there’s a bit of symbology in my message. I learned long ago to take advantage of the market trends I mentioned several paragraphs above. Right now because of market saturation prices on most AR15’s and associated hardware are at their lowest points ever and that can change in an instant. I learned long ago to take advantage of the market and focus on items that can be regulated and eliminated. In the the the year or two leading up to the awful events in Sandy Hook while other shooters were making their AR15’s look pretty I was buying stripped AR15 lowers
Palmetto State Armory aka “PSA” has embraced pistol caliber AR’s in a big way. In the case of AR 9mm they offer them in Colt and the subject of this post Glock Magazine compatible style. PSA is currently offering no less than 20 different options of 9mm AR-15 lower receiver. Now that number is slightly misleading because PSA also includes 7 blemished models as 9mm AR lowers for sale. The 13 9mm lower receiver models that remain are actually PSA’s way of having a 9mm AR lower your way. They offer basic stripped 9mm lower receivers, 9mm AR Pistol Lower Receivers as well as variations with different stocks and triggers. Examples would include SOB Brace, KAK SHOCKWAVE, Magpul MOE Furniture and EPT Enhanced Polished Trigger.
