James Reeves spotted this interesting 9mm bufferless PCC upper at TriggerCon 2023 and just had to stop by to see what it was. The Matador Arms 9mm PCC upper is a bufferless design that’s compatible with a wide variety of 9mm lowers, is completely made in the USA and retails for under $600. The MAT-9 bufferless upper combines the space savings of the bufferless design with an affordable price point to give you a flexible blue-collar pistol caliber carbine option.

    I love that stock. Like Kenny Rogers - “it’s the wood that makes it good”

    This, CMMG's Dissent, Brownell's BRN9, R&D Precision PW9, are all contenders and ahead of Angstadt's MDP-9 that until this day, refuses to release an upper only offering. Also, the LRBHO is NOT built in into the upper, you still need a lower with that feature, in fact it is preferred for the feature to remain in the lower for reliability. I still think the Dissent is ahead due to the fact that it features the Radial Delayed Blowback system.
