The pistol-caliber carbine, or PCC, has become a popular 9mm-chambered configuration for the AR platform. Until recently, you would've had to convert your existing AR-15 into this config, dubbed the AR9, with a sloppy "box magazine" conversion kit and new barrel and chamber fitted to your existing receiver. We decided to offer up proper, from-scratch kits.
New to the pistol-caliber carbine? Read our in-depth AR9 Build & Ballistics Guide.
Some states have enacted restrictions against pistol kits like these, or otherwise recognize such kits to be firearms, contrary to federal law -- even though these kits do not include a stripped lower receiver. Be sure to check your local and state laws before purchasing. We cannot fulfill orders to some states. We strongly recommend reviewing our Shipping & Returns policy to ensure your state is not restricted before ordering.
It's time to build your custom AR9.
