Pistol caliber carbines are (rightly or wrongly) the hot item in the modern sporting rifle marketplace. Driven by the plethora of AR-15 components out there, curiosity, adoption of competition divisions, and just plain old fun, 9mm is certainly going down range in quantity from these blasters. Owning one myself, they are indeed some of the most fun and cheap shooting I can do sans .22lr.
JARD has taken a page from their J67 rifle we previously reviewed and has updated it into the latest J68, the same 100% ambidextrous rifle design we enjoyed the first time around. Changing up the looks just a hair, the weapon still features M-LOK compatible slots and AR-15 grips such that one can customize the boxy carbine any way they can dream it.
Most interestingly, the J68 has expanded the various caliber offerings, no longer just a 9mm option. The J68 is offered in 9mm, .40 Smith & Wesson, and the grand-pappy .45 ACP, each of which feeds from Glock magazines.
Like the J67, the weapon maintains a target trigger (which is incredible for bullpups). It adds a clamshell break-open design, bolt hold open, and various Q/D mounts spread across the chassis.
