CAA Micro RONI for the Stormtrooper In You

Micro RONI

Love them or hate them, there is little denying that the RONI kits for the Glock pistol are extremely popular with the shooting public. Made by CAA, these kits come in a variety of sizes with a range of options to accessorize your Glock handgun. One of the latest is the limited edition Micro RONI Stabilizer Advanced Kit White. Whew…that’s a heck of a name.

The kits are white and black giving them a Star Wars stormtrooper look. Lest you think this was a happy coincidence, CAA states the color is “Milky Way White for a far, far away distant galaxy look.”

This RONI kit comes in two sizes: one for the Glock 17/22/31 sized pistols and a second for the Glock 19/23/32 sized guns. The gun kits come with:

  • an integral flashlight: The light is rated for 500 lumens. Several days ago there was a website glitch that listed the retail price much higher than it should have been. That error has been corrected.
  • a forward thumb rest
  • a set of flip-up sights
  • folding pistol brace
  • Picatinny rail for adding an optic
  • As with other RONI units, the┬álimited edition Micro RONI Stabilizer Advanced Kit White (can I call it the LEMRSAKW?) is made largely of polymer and aluminum. It adds a little more than 3.5 pounds to the weight of the gun.

    For $550 (suggested retail price,) let’s hope hitting the target is easier with these than it seems to be for most stormtrooper issued weaponry.

      I never understood the appeal of these, for $550 I’d rather buy another gun.

      • vwVwwVwv

        I wouldn’t to if i would live in the US, the rest of the World
        dreams of one gun and then conversions enter the game.

        you know whats a Drilling, you can buy an arsenal for one
        but a drilling is 1 gun and an arsenal you are not
        allowed to have in europe for example.

        20.000 $ are not unusual for such a hunting toy

        • Sarig

          “allowed to have in europe for example.”

          That’s 40+ countries. Which ones in particular are you talking about?

          • vwVwwVwv

            i am in germany, a german citizen cant have a gun at all
            if he is not a active sportsshooter, collector or hunter.
            it is restricted for the time of your activity, if
            you don’t continue your activity
            you have to destroy or
            sell the guns.

            most germans see guns in movies or in possession of police.
            a regular sportsshooter can have (if he proves he needs them)
            2 handguns, 2 semiautomatic rifles (pump action shotguns they
            count as semi automatics) and 10 carabines.
            would you rather have a M4 + a Molot 12/76 for
            3 gun competition and a conversion kit for fun
            or rather don’t go for 3 gun at all?

      • Jason Culligan

        The appeal here where I am comes from the fact that you’re only allowed a maximum of five firearms on your license. Conversion kits like this do not count to that list.

        You can have a pistol and a PCC that occupies just one slot as opposed to two.

        • EdgyTrumpet

          I should’ve specified that I meant outside places with such regulations, I’m sure these come in handy when you’re allowed to own only limited number of guns.

        • jonp

          I never thought to ask someone that lives in that repressive environment but how are switch barrel rifles counted or in a larger sense how is a firearm defined? Here it’s the lower end not the barrel. If for example, you had an AR stryle firearm could you have a 223 and a 300BO top end and one lower with the entire thing counting as one firearm?

    • vwVwwVwv

      they are not made for GLOCKS only,
      there are ronis for Baretta, CZ, HK, Sig Sauer, Springfield XD, Armscore,
      Jericho, Bul Cerokee, Bersa Thunder.

      • int19h

        The only ones currently sold in US are for Glock.

        • vwVwwVwv

          Thats strange.

        • Cymond

          Not only are other versions on their website, but they’re available on GunBroker, too.

    • Joby

      These seem to be getting less ugly as time goes on. The white one actually looks like some kind of subgun as opposed to an oddball monstrousity of tails with a stock

    • Calavera

      Dang!…My savings account is about to take a major hit. I’ll take one in Milky Way White, please.

    • Hinermad

      I never felt the need to own a Glock until now. But you know what they say, “The Force can have a strong influence on the weak-minded.”

      • Phillip Cooper

        I’ve just placed my second- a G4 G23- on layaway. Bought a G2 G17 a few years back and much like the AK, I’ve developed a grudging respect for it.

        Also- how on earth are these legal? I love the idea, but it seems like you’re still putting a shoulder stock, forward assist, etc, on a pistol.

        Definitely might have to get one of these.

        • Hinermad

          That’s an arm brace, not a shoulder stock. If you look closely at the photo with the $2000 flashlight you can kind of see that it’s a loop, not a solid stock.

      • ostiariusalpha

        Have you seen the new VT-16? They say it’s… quite a thing to see.

    • 22winmag

      As a proud owner of a $400 top-folding 4lb .40S&W Sub2000… this setup is meaningless to me. I’m more than happy with the accurate Level IIIa shredding 2.600fps I get with Liberty ammo for short range engagements.

    • DMZ

      They need to make a FN Five-Seven compatible version so I can get as close to an MP7 as any civilian ever will.

    • roguetechie

      Damnit Roni!!

      I almost actually want this LOL

    • Command Arms Usa

      The issue has been fixed. The product is $67.99.

    • jonp

      I saw the RONI last year somewhere maybe here? and I never had an interest in owning a Glock. That almost made me buy one just to get the RONI. Yup, just clicked on a couple of links. It was here last year. If I run across a cheap glock I might get it just to try the RONI out.

    • Cymond

      $550?
      The CAA website says $375 and right now, they’re $318. That’s a difference of $230!
      The flashlight is an additional $68.

    • Cymond

      Wow, a 4.5″ barrel on a 5.56mm pistol. I wonder about the ballistics, and hate to think of the muzzle blast.

      • Mikhail

        Imagine it with subsonic ammo and a suppressor. Thats enough to give a man a chubby LOL

        • MichaelZWilliamson

          Or, you know, go with a round that was designed for a short barrel.

    • Sulaco5

      What does ATF say about these things?

      • MichaelZWilliamson

        That you must never shoulder it or it becomes an SBR.

    • jonp

      They make one for the BUL Cherokee and Bersa but not a SW M&P? Guess they consider the Israeli and other markets more lucrative than the US. It’s cool but not $500+ Cool. Be cheaper to buy the $212 one and a used Glock.

    • jonp

      Comicon here I come

    • GI

      What exactly is the advantage of this thing without a stock compared to just a “naked” pistol? Seems like an answer to a question no one is asking in my opinion…

      • MichaelZWilliamson

        It makes your gun less accurate so you can shoot like a Stormtrooper.

    • M.Mitchell Marmel

      PEW PEW PEW!

    • MichaelZWilliamson

      Does it also make your gun less accurate so you can shoot like a Stormtrooper?

      • Golden Cobra

        That would be my fear.
