Wilson Combat 9mm Carbine

    Wilson Combat

    Wilson Combat announced a new AR pattern carbine chambered for the 9×19 pistol caliber. The new gun, called the AR9, is different from most AR pattern 9mm as it can be had with one of three different lowers that accept magazines for:

    • Glock 17 (and similar)
    • Beretta 92
    • Smith & Wesson M&P9

    According to the folks at Wilson Combat, this new rifle is not simply a warmed over AR. Rather, it was designed to be a 9mm carbine that uses the familiar controls of the AR-15. The company claims the new gun offers the handling of an AR with the best possible reliability and accuracy the 9mm can obtain in a rifle form.

    The company states the gun was designed to function with a broad range of ammunition including all of the popular hollow point loads and higher pressure (+P) loads.

    Some of the features found on this new carbine are:

    • bolt hold open with lock back on empty factory magazines
    • proprietary bolt carrier group with heavy duty claw extractor
    • billet machined aluminum receivers
    • flared magazine well
    • integral, oversized trigger guard
    • designed for suppressed use
    • match grade, carbon steel barrel with 1:10″ twist and button rifling
    • fluted barrels optional
    • carbine and SBR lengths available; can be ordered as a pistol
    • various accessories and Armor Tuff finish colors are available
    • compatible with standard AR furniture, triggers, charging handles, stocks and optics

    The base price is $1,995.

    Wilson Combat makes a variety of weapons such as the ARP and a range of high end 1911 pistols.
