Ok, so maybe the “AR” part is a bit of a stretch. But it accepts AR mags and uses an AR fire-control group. It caught my eye since…well…anything weird catches my eye.

Notice side loading magazine. AR-15 Magazine.

And it seems they have a 9mm blowback version that takes…wait for it…Glock mags.

Their display at NRA 2023.

So you ask, do we want one? No. Probably not. Unless maybe it’s almost giveaway cheap like a CDNN blowout. But I do like the side-feed mag system. That’s cool is a unique sort of way. See weird eye comment above.

Of course they make a 9mm, blowback version that accepts Glock mags.

But…is it technically a “new” gun? No. It’s repackaged AR-15 parts. This would be the same as us making a 1911 pistol that had a side loading magazine. Would that be unique? Sure. Ground breaking or a whole new pistol design? No. It would be a gimmick. 

Just like this.
