New Range Toy - 01/07/19 07:24 PM

Quarter Circle 10 9mm AR

Suddenly I got the bug for one of these and threw down on their "Rider" which is based on the Colt pattern.
It takes modified Uzi mags, 20rd or 32rd

Some of the AR9's are Glock pattern, taking Glock mags.
I think that the straight, Uzi sub-machinegun mag looks pretty cool, they're cheaper and they run.

Quarter Circle 10 makes the premier 9mm lower that is not an adapted AR lower.
Angstadt Arms makes a sweet Glock lower as well.
QC-10 makes both patterns.

Mine looks like this except 7.5" (5.5" shown), M-Lok handguard and Magpul grip.


Reminds me of this guy.
No fairy Glock mags here....

Did you get a stamp or is it a pistol build like the pic?

I've always wanted a pistol carbine for chits and giggles. I'm a .45 acp guy, so I've been kicking around the idea of an old school Tommy or a Kriss Vector. There's also some nice takedown, ultra light .45 camp guns that are pretty interesting.

It's a pistol with a SOB brace.

The QC10 or Angstadt for the large frame Glock mags is another way to get into 45ACP.

Angstadt 45ACP (SBA3 telescoping brace)


Here's the Colt....not a fan.

Mine was $1146.
I bought it when they were having a sale just before Christmas.

Palmetto State Armory puts their AR9 rendition on sale for $549.
Not quite as nifty as QC10 or Angstadt, but it's easier on the wallet.
They do mostly Glock pattern but they do have some Colt pattern stuff.

The QC10 and Angstadt have that slim magwell which sets them apart.
The PSA magwell is dedicated, just not as refined as the other two.

4K? Ouch! Too rich for my blood for an AR of any type. I'm sure it's a kick-ass rifle, as you only do kick-ass!

Would seem reasonable to me if you included the can and optics. smile

I've got a hard on now for an HTI Desert Tech Rifle. I just spec'd one out for $15K. rofl

PS. I couldn't afford the ammo......let alone a complete HTI.

Thanks Evo for the link. I've looked at so many scopes lately and it's really amazing what's out there iffin' you can justify the cost.

Didn't want to spring for optics in the $2500 - $3000 range. It wasn't so much the cost but the weight and the reticle style were of more importance.

I have a Trijicon ACOG 4 x 32 with the .308 reticle. It's way to busy for my old eyes to pick up the intersection of the cross hairs quickly. Most of the complex mil-dot reticles have so much going on when you look through them that it's hard for a guy with old eyes to pick up the intersection amid all of the other info that is on display. And do it in a hurry.

So,I put a Leupold VX-5HD 2 x 10 x 44 mm obj. on my 22" barrel 6.8 SPC. Really nice clarity, positive click 1/4 min. adjustments, Fire Dot duplex illuminated reticle, 30 mm tube. Best part is it is only 12.5" long and only weighs 19 Oz.

So I got basically the same thing for this JP LTC-19 / 6.5 CM. Only this time I got the VX-6HD 3 x 18 x 44 mm obj. This one is 13.5 " long and still only weighs 20.2 oz. Same Illuminated Fire Dot reticle, 30 mm tube, and 1/4 min. click adjustments. This one however is a second focal plane rig as opposed to the VX -5HD 2 x 10 x 44 which is a first focal plane outfit.

Can't wait to send a bunch of 123 and 136 grain Lapua Scenars ahead of a healthy charge of Hodgen Superformance to that distant 800 meter target.

Ya Buddy !

Get your Bucket List smokepoles now.
They will be going after mags over 10 rounds and pistol braces next.
And then no guarantee that what you have will be grandfathered in.

I just bought some standard capacity (15 rd) Beretta 92 mags from a guy in NJ.
NJ just passed their mag law.
18 months in the Graybar Hotel for every mag over 10 rounds in your possession.

Nick .....

I can get to five hundred meters at my local club. ( PeEll Sportsman's Club ). For eight hundred meters and way beyond, I take a trip to Othello and re-visit my old hunting grounds. The Michel's Crab Creek Ranch. 2700 hundred private acres in the center of the Columbia Nat'l. Wildlife Refuge between Royal and Hutchinson Lakes.

BB, we've talked about Michel's Ranch in the past...some buddies and I used to lease one of their ranches for duck hunting off of Corfu.

BTW, songdogs are starting to sing around my place. I'd say breeding season is kicking in right on schedule. No real snow yet, but the elk are still around. I thought we kicked them for good when the kid had his cow tag.

Just finished a build for my son in law. 2A Arms upper /lower , 24 in Proof Research in the ole 6.5 C/M, Geissele trigger, and a lot of titanium fastener bits.

$2,790 +/-

Waiting for some nice weather and his new Trijicon scope, so we can begin the break in , and some longer ranging shots ! We’ll see if he can keep up with my 6.5 Grendel long ranger. wink

Speaking of Othello, my goodness are the coyotes out of control or what ? We spent a week chasing quail and Huns near there a week or so ago, and busted up at least 20 Yotes outta the Russian Olive and sand dunes !

Methinks some predator shooting may be needed...

Classic has the wrong pic in their ad.
That's a Glock pattern AR, not a 300 BLK.
300 BLK uses 5.56 mags....it's 5.56 necked up to .308
