SHOT Show 2018: CMMG MkG Guard 9 mm

posted on January 23, 2018
In 2017, CMMG made big news with the launch of its all-new MkG Guard pistol-caliber carbine chambered in .45 ACP. The company's carbine uses an innovative radial-delayed blowback system that keeps the bolt closed long enough for chamber pressure to drop while still working on the simple blowback-action principle.

The company has since expanded its MkG Guard lineup with new options in 9 mm, operating on the same radial-delayed system. This allows the gun to remain lightweight, since the bolt carrier doesn't need to carry extra weight in order to allow the system to function optimally.

For more details on the new CMMG MkG Guard 9mm, watch the video above.
