Trojan Firearms, based in Phoenix, AZ, took more than 30 years of knowledge and experience in precision machining and put it toward designing high-performance firearms. The latest from the company is the new PRO9V1 carbine, chambered in 9 mm.

The new Trojan PRO9V1 carbine is based on the ergonomics and controls of the AR-15 platform, but the company's focus on the new gun was to design a pistol-caliber carbine from scratch in order to provide consumers with the most reliable 9 mm carbine possible, solving many of the issues found in many pistol-caliber carbines on the market with straight-blowback operating systems.

The Trojan Firearms PRO9V1 features an upper receiver, lower receiver and handguard that are CNC machined from aircraft-grade billet aluminum. The springs and detent pins in the lower are coated with Teflon in order to provide added lubricity, and the gun also features a flared magazine well that improves reloading.

The carbine features a 16-inch barrel that features a lightweight contour, a 1:10 rate of twist and is constructed from 4150V steel. The barrel features a nitride finish and uses a Grater Gen II muzzle brake that can be tuned according to the end user's preferences. The gun also features an ambidextrous charging handle, as well as the company's own adjustable drop-in trigger.

Other features of the gun include a free-float handguard that features a KeyMod attachment system that allows for easy mounting of accessories anywhere on the circumference. The upper receiver and the rail top form a continuous flattop Picatinny mounting surface for optics and other accessories. The gun also features a tension screw and a lock screw that allows users to keep the upper and lower receiver tightly matched.

The new Trojan Firearms PRO9V1 is available in two different models. The first model, the PRO9V1-G, is compatible with all 9 mm Glock magazines. The PRO9V1-M is compatible with 9 mm MBX or STI 2011 magazines. The company also sells a California-compliant version.

The guns are available in red, metallic blue and black finishes. The suggested retail price for the PRO9V1-G is $1,399, while the PRO9V1-M retails at a suggested price of $1,549.99. The California-compliant model is available for $1,449.99.
