    What do those cost these days?

    It sure wasn't cheap. I don't remember the exact price but I believe just over a grand.

    I'm sure the $500.00 Ruger will be more than sufficient for my needs. Poured a bunch of Lee 356-124-TC last night to get ready!!

    Does your bolt lock open on the last round? It doesnít on my Glock mag lower from PSA.

    yes it does. It looks and feels and works just like a 223 ar. Only difference is the bolt and carrier are one piece due to it being a blow back action and the gas key on top of the bolt is only there to engage the charging handle. this is the one I have https://www.cmmginc.com/product/rifle-mk9le-9mm/ I guess I was wrong on the price. I checked my gun log and I paid 920 bucks out the door for it.

    I've already nagged Ruger for a .45 that eats from 1911 mags. If they do that, I'll play.

    I've already requested from my little honey at my LGS that when she sees that Ruger is making the PC45 that uses 1911 mags to order one for me.

    I really don't think theres going to be much of a demand for a tactical rifle that uses 7 round mags. Might see a 45 from then that uses glock mags though. Ive been wrong before though.

    Good point Lloyd on the magazine issue. This carbine is going to be a winner in whatever calibers they put out. For me, the 9mm makes the most sense as it will be a fun plinker gun and if the bolt is not to hard to pull back, a SD gun for the lady.

    my 9mm ar15 carbine is flat out the most fun gun I own. As cheap to shoot as a 22 these days to boot. Ill probably wait for a 40 because I already have the 9 but I might even talk myself into one in 9 too.

    If properly maintained a Camp 9 will run with the best of them, it's a lot more fun when you can hear the impacts. Moved the front sight back to accommodate the threads for a suppressor.

    Agreed. But Mine's uglier I need to move the sight back on mine and replace the scope with the peep sight a friend gave me...

    What can I say? I got a good price on it...

    It's a matter of personal taste. I see absolutely nothing appealing about the PSA other than it goes bang. You are also stuck with an arm brace unless you spend more money to SBR it or put a 16" barrel on.

    Funny you posted that Lloyd, I literally just placed the order for that last night after hemming and hawing over it all day. As much as I like the idea of the Ruger carbine, the PSA ar9 suits my fancy just fine. I can just yank the flash hider off and use it with the suppressor that way. LRBHO doesn't really bother me (the AK doesn't have it either), and the arm brace is fine with me. I wasn't overly eager for the longer barrel on the Ruger anyways.

    If it works for you, that's great. I actually find non-pistol grip stocks to be way more comfortable and the 16" barrel is a plus for my purposes. I thought about going with a regular 9mm AR-15 but the Ruger does everything I need it to so that's what I'm rolling with.
