Last week the AK Operators Union released a teaser video on the new Atlantic Firearms/Definitive Arms AKX-9 9mm blowback-operated rifle. Soon after we ran an article on it, two more videos went up; a new AKOU video and a MAC review, both embedded below:
While I don’t see the practical utility of pistol caliber carbines versus their rifle-caliber counterparts, I do find them to be very fun shooters. I am pleased to see that Definitive Arms and Atlantic Firearms have made sound decisions on what models to offer to the public, including the standard buttstocks, sight mount, Colt magazine, and muzzle device allowing easy SBR conversions.
The AKX-9 comes in four variants, all of which are already listed on Atlantic Firearms website, though only the pistol is listed as “in stock”. Prices range between $1,499 for the AKX-9P pistol to $1,779 for the AKX-9S triangular folding stock variant.
