Welcome everyone to the 166th edition of ‘Hot Gat or Fudd Crap?’, one of our many series here on TFB. If you’re new to the series, this is where we look at the most obscure firearms that are actually for sale and ask the question – is this Gat a sweet deal or only has a Fudd appeal? Each week the TFB staff weighs in with their thoughts, but readers get the final say in the poll at the bottom of each article.
In our last edition, our poll showed that you, the readers, decided the Mandalorian-themed Glock 26 was fudd crap.
At this time, the original auction remains up with the Glock 26’s price slightly lowered to $1,650 Buy It Now. We hope this Mandalorian-themed gat can find its way to a new home in the very near future.
In this week’s edition of HGFC, we look at a custom Spikes Tactical AR9 pistol chambered in 9mm. As is tradition, this Glock mag-ready PCC is currently up for sale on GunBroker for a $999 Starting Bid with No Reserve.
HOT GAT or FUDD CRAP?
Is This Custom PCC Underrated or Outdated?
Let’s see what the Staff had to say about this week’s offering:
“The first Call of Duty: Modern Warfare called, it wants its Chinesium optic back.” – Luke C.
“Say something nice: I’m pleasantly surprised by the lack of extraneous red parts/Punisher skulls/zombie motif.” – Will P.
“We have B&T SPC9 at home…” – Rusty S.
Selling this homebrew 9mm gat is GunBroker seller arm4d, located in Saint Louis MO. Let’s see what they had to say about this custom creation.
Spike’s Tactical Custom AR9 Pistol 4″ barrel keymod rail with handstop. The lower accepts Glock pattern magazines. Includes reflex sight and Magpul BUIS. Includes 4 x 32rd Glock pattern magazines. Condition is like-new; <100rds through it. NO AMMUNITION INCLUDED. ALL WEAPONS SHOULD BE INSPECTED BY A COMPETENT GUNSMITH PRIOR TO FIRING. BUYER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR KNOWING THEIR STATE’S GUN AND MAGAZINE CAPACITY LAWS.
With PCCs growing in popularity a few of these dated builds are bound to hit the market. It’s easy to forget there was a time when KeyMod and original MBUS sights were all the rage. Not to say either of these items are functionally obsolete, but altogether it makes the package seem a little dated.
As far as builds go, this one is rather clean. We can argue all day about what optic to put on a setup like this, but for the price, this is a good place to start. And of course, it does take Glock mags. So it’s certainly practical, but aesthetically it is certainly far from exciting. Not to mention, when the listing recommends having it inspected by a gunsmith prior to firing, it doesn’t exactly inspire confidence.
So is this slightly dated 9mm PCC build worth it for just a shade under $1k or would you rather spend your money on something else. As always, I leave it up to you, the readers, to decide.
