CMMG 5.56 Pistol

    CMMG is now making an AR-style pistol in 5.56 NATO. Previously, the company made AR-style pistols in 9mm and 300 BLK only.

    Unlike the existing pistols, the 5.56 NATO version will have a 12.5″ barrel.  The 9mm and 300 BLK guns use an 8.2″ barrel. This pistol uses a free-floating KeyMod hand guard. KeyMod hand guards are thinner than traditional quad-rail designs.  Compatible accessories can be attached directly to the hand guard. Also, short lengths of rail can be added for non-compatible kit.

    An ambidextrous, single-point sling attachment is standard, as is the Magpul MOE pistol grip and 30-round magazine.

    I’ve previously had the chance to shoot and review the Mk4 AR pistol in 300 BLK.  That gun ran well and was accurate.
