    Good news for pistol calibre carbine lovers, Stag Arms have introduced their new PXC series. Not only does it feed from Glock mags but it also has a last round hold open. The PXC will initially be chambered in 9×19, with other calibres to follow, and is available in various barrel lengths and configurations including a 16” carbine, a 10” pistol or SBR and a 5.5” Pistol.

    Here’s what Stag Arms have to say about their new PXC-9:

    New Britain, CT – Stag Arms, LLC is pleased to announce the release of the highly-anticipated Stag PXC-9 Series. The 9x19mm chambered series has been purpose-built to bring reliability from the pistol caliber platform and addresses all the features that users have been asking for, including GLOCK® Magazines and Last Round Bolt Hold Open.

    “The Stag PXC-9 Series is the newest edition to our ever-evolving line-up of AR-style firearms,” said Anthony Ash, President for Stag Arms, LLC. “By looking at the proprietary bolt and the enhanced features on the receivers, customers will notice that the Stag PXC Series stands out from the competition. This model not only reaffirms our commitment to producing high-quality and reliable firearms, but also our commitment to innovating for our customers.”
    The Stag PXC will initially be offered in 9x19mm with additional calibers (.40S&W, 10mm, .45ACP) being offered later this summer. Four different models are available at the initial release: 16” Carbines, 10” Pistols, 10” SBRs and 5.5” Pistols that are built on forged 7075 Aluminum receivers with Nitride coated 4150 CMV barrels and a completely re-designed bolt.

    Last Round Bolt Open – The last round bolt hold open was designed to work reliably with GLOCK® and GLOCK®-pattern pistol magazines. The design of the last round bolt hold open assembly protects from dirt and debris providing reliable operation even for extend shooting sessions.

    Custom Designed Bolt – The Stag PXC bolt is a work of art on its own. It is custom designed to mate with the cone breech in the barrel, ensuring the strength, safety, smooth feeding and reliability shooters demand from a pistol caliber carbine. The bolt’s weight is optimized to provide the best possible performance and features controlled round feeding from the magazine. The bolt works in conjunction with the extractor, ejector, and the optimized PXC ejection port and brass deflector in the upper
    receiver combines to give strong, reliable, and consistent ejection of the fired cases. The Stag PXC ejector is designed to withstand normal handling as well as hard use without having to worry about damage.
