posted on March 3, 2021
Aero Precision recently introduced the new EPC-9, a pistol caliber carbine and line of components that the company says is meant to change the landscape of the PCC market. 

The new EPC-9 was engineered from the ground up and built on a foundation of American quality and precision manufacturing. Conveniently, the EPC-9 will accept Glock-style magazines and utilizes a flared mag well, integrated trigger guard, and threaded bolt catch. The EPC-9 also features last-round-bolt-open functionality. Designed with minimal proprietary parts, the new PCC is made to be friendly for configuration. 

Likewise, the EPC-9 has standard compatibility with AR-15 and AR-9 parts, giving shooters total flexibility for your next build. It features an 8.3-inch barrel with 7-inch Atlas R-One handguard.
