    Nordic Components has joined the legion of manufacturers of AR-15-based pistol caliber carbines but with a neat little twist. The Nordic Pistol Caliber Carbine will feature a removable, interchangeable, modular magazine well system that will allow for the use of different makes and models of pistol magazines.

    Shooters who have been paying attention to the worlds of IDPA and USPSA competition shooting will know that the pistol caliber carbine (PCC) is red hot these days. The PCC now has classifications and divisions in both shooting sport’s governing bodies.

    The Nordic Components Pistol Caliber Carbine touts the ability to lock back on an empty magazine, a feature that Nordic Components says is critical to both a defensive and competition use. The Nordic Components Pistol Caliber Carbine upper, lower and handguard are machined from 7075 billet aluminum and look pretty slick to this writer. The NC-3 handguard is a freefloat design that uses the Magpul M-LOK attachment design.

    Initially the Nordic Components Pistol Caliber Carbine will be offered with the most popular calibers and configurations, in this case 9mm, GLOCK magazines and S&W M&P magazines in 16 inch rifle configuration, 8.5 inch SBR configuration, and a 8.5 inch pistol version. Nordic promises additional magwells and caliber in the future.
