Nordic Components Pistol Caliber Carbine

Do you shoot competition with your spouse or partner but don’t want to drop the cash on two guns? The Nordic Components Pistol Caliber Carbine might be just the gun you are looking for. In this episode of TFBTV, Patrick takes the new carbine out to the range and puts it through the paces. Not only is it a high-quality AR chambered in 9mm, but the interchangeable mag well design allows for a shooter to swap from Glock mags to M&P mags with literally the push of a button.

  • Nice review. How much does it weigh (without your Aimpoint)? I didn’t see the weight listed on the manufacturer’s website.

    • Flounder

      It is a straight blow back. So even if they went with a thin barrel profile and a lightweight rail they won’t get under 7lbs. It is probably about 7.5-8lbs bare. The BCG is a solid block of steel and the buffer is something similar, and the lower is a billet reciever, and the barrel is bigger since it has to throw .355 size bullets instead of .223 bullets.

      The handguard is lightweight, and the stock is lightweight so i doubt that it could be more than 8.5lbs. Sorry I don’t have hard numbers.

      • Giolli Joker

        Actually the BCG is the bolt, as you said, it’s a straight blowback.

        • Flounder

          I forgot to include that. Yeah. The BCG is just a smg styled bolt. Same rough size and shape as a normal AR-15 carrier, just solid all the way and no moving parts except the firing pin.

  • EC

    Huh, funny, I thought that “frankly, pistol calibre carbines don’t make a lot of sense.”


  • USMC03Vet

    $1600 price tag is a bit absurd. It’s 9mm not .50 AE.

    • Giolli Joker

      On the other hand, .50 AE taking Desert Eagle’s mags would be cool…

    • Not really, it is on the higher end of a smaller niche product.

      The cheap ARs typically come with a low end hand guard, low end stock, etc.

      Sure you can get Keltec, or a CZ for cheaper, but they are unsuitable for the market that Nordic appears to be aiming at.

    • Ed Ward

      Yup–Sad as it’s highly appealing in terms of its mag-well modularity, in particular, for those that have corresponding pistols on hand–makes this model a real ‘must have’…the savings in not having to buy mags negates a lot but still…God Bless the Fallen on this Memorial Day Weekend.

  • DMZ

    Great, but it’s also double the cost of what it has to be soooo~~

    • valorius

      More than double the cost in todays pricing world.

  • BattleshipGrey

    An ETS clear mag would’ve been cool to see when you were mag dumping.

  • supergun

    What kind of hand guard rail is that? Where can you buy one of those for a Smith and Wesson M&P AR 10 308?

  • jonp

    In a 40 Cal or 10mm that would be quite the ticket. Unfortunately I already have several pistol caliber carbines. Hi Point has been doing it for some time and before you haters start in, they all go bang everytime I pull the trigger.

  • Dan Garrett

    For $1600, you COULD buy two guns. What kind of competition is this?
