C9 9mm Pistol / Carbine

CORE Rifle Systems is proud to introduce its new line of AR 9mm Pistols and Carbines! The new C9 is a ground up, original design. This is not a hybrid or modified AR. This all billet 7075 T6 Aluminum, all ambidextrous 9mm platform is designed around the GLOCK Magazine system. Designed specifically for Team Core’s professional shooters, this sleek little package delivers superior performance. All components are of the highest quality U.S. materials, crafted and engineered by U.S. veterans. The bolt/carrier is a non-rotating blow-back operation providing excellent function in its simplicity, made of the highest grade 416R Stainless Steel. The last round hold open functions flawlessly, while the unique ejection port provides trouble free cycling. The pistol model has the legendary SB Tactical PDW Brace, while the carbine has the awesome Magpul CTR Stock. They are both equipped with a Samson SX series M-Lok Rail System, while the barrel is completed by our award-winning Core Muzzle Brake. core15rifles.com
