Don’t think this is just a converted AR-15, the Wilson Combat AR9 has been specifically designed for superior reliability and maximum accuracy. It retains the handling and controls of the AR platform that many are familiar with, and it’s available with your choice of pistol magazine compatibility, barrel length, custom Armor Tuff colors as well as other accessories to suite your needs.

The Wilson Combat AR9 9mm pistol caliber carbine is a closed-bolt blowback operating system that’s soft and reliable and is fit for a variety of 9 mm loads including hollow point and +P tactical ammunition. The AR9 features a bolt hold open that ensure a reliable lockback on empty with your pistol’s factory magazine and a proprietary bolt carrier group with heavy duty claw extractor and plunger ejector.

The AR9 achieves quality and accuracy due to its carbon steel match-grade button rifled 1:10-inch twist on a 9 mm barrel. In addition, a host of optimized suppressors with minimal gas blowback helps you achieve that precise shot.  

"We have extensively tested the AR9 and it has exceeded my expectations for reliability and accuracy. When the AR9 is mated with a quality red dot sight and weapon light it is an exceptional training and home defense firearm for shooters of all skill levels,” said Bill Wilson, president of Wilson Combat.

The Wilson Combat AR9 can be ordered with your choice of Glock 17, Smith & Wesson M&P or Beretta 92 magazine compatability and configured as a pistol, carbine or short-barreled rifle. You can choose between fluted or non-fluted barrels in a variety of lengths and designs.

Review: Smith & Wesson Shield Plus

In retrospect, Smith & Wesson had nobody to blame for the situation but themselves. The company didn’t invent the subcompact, lightweight, single-stack nine, of course. Walther and Beretta had preceded the original Shield to market by a few years with the PPS and the Nano, respectively, and Kahr had more or less created the niche back in the 1990s.
