What Do You Get When You Cross A Glock With An AR?

If you’re into pistol-caliber carbines and want the familiarity of an AR-15, Dark Storm Industries showed its new DS-9 Typhoon 9mm AR platform rifle at SHOT. It accepts readily available Glock magazines and weighs in at only 6.5 lbs. It comes with an ambidextrous safety selector and tactical changing handle standard, and there’s a drop-in 4-lb. trigger upgrade available as an option. Configurations include standard, post-ban and featureless so the DS-9 Typhoon is legal in almost every state. Cerakote finishes include FDE and ODG in addition to standard black.
