AR9 Pistol Kit
The new AR9 platform is a dedicated 9mm PCC (pistol-caliber carbine) and pistol configuration that ditches those sloppy barrel and "box magazine" conversions. We partnered closely with top gunsmiths and OEM manufacturers to bring you these wickedly priced, high-performance AR9 Pistol Kits. Available in various barrel lengths, handguard types, and configurations, there's an affordable AR9 kit for you waiting just above.
Why Our Pistol Kits?
When you purchase an AR-type "build kit" from a gun store or other online retailer who's an FFL, you're really just buying a disassembled rifle or pistol. You're still paying the extra taxes, fees, and higher prices associated with purchasing a retail firearm. But our kits ditch all that in favor of the new AR9 80% lower! This lower is not legally considered a firearm by the ATF or federal law, and we pass those savings on to you. That also means your AR9 kit ships directly to your front door -- minus the taxes, fees, paperwork, and FFL transfer. In addition to cost savings and convenience, our kits boast some of the highest-grade barrels, treatments, and parts available:
Why our AR9 Kits are tier-one in fit and finish:
- All barrels are forged from MIL-B-11595 E steel (4150 or Chromoly Vanadium)
- All stainless barrels forged from Crucible 416R steel, offering sub-MOA accuracy
- All BCGs are M16 in profile with chrome lining and properly staked gas keys
- All stripped upper receivers forged from mil-spec 7075 T6 aluminum
- All buffer assemblies and lower parts kits are mil-spec in fit and finish
- All barreled uppers are test-fired to ensure proper assembly
Completing Your 80% Lower and Pistol
Your AR9 kit ships with all the parts you need to assemble your pistol into a working, fully functional, MOA-capable shooter. To fabricate the 80% lower, you'll need the AR9 80% jig. The jig provides the cutting and drilling instructions and guides you along each fabrication step. Total machining time takes around two hours or less for first-time builders, no experience required. The jig also includes the necessary drill bits and end mill bit to complete the receiver.
NOTE: The AR9 80% lower is designed to use factory and aftermarket Glock magazines, with the appropriate ejector already installed. To make it even more convenient, the lower is designed to work with a mil-spec AR-15 lower parts kit and buffer assembly. That means any standard AR-15 or AR9 jig will work when completing the receiver!
Pistol Brace Included!
The ATF recently clarified that pistol braces are completely legal on your AR9 pistol. To see the ATF's most recent determination letter, read our pistol brace guide here.
