    A YouTube video for those interested in the 9X39 coming to the US

    Here is an old thread on it:

    And here is video posted from some shoot down in Georgia:

    fast forward to about the 2 minute mark.

    Language may Not be Suitable For Work...just an FYI...

    I think Wolf or Piedmont cartridge is working on making AR uppers for it.

    Since it is such a fat, slow round...subsonic...used by the Speznatz, it would be ideal for casting heavy boolits for it.

    EDIT: here is a Larry Vickers video on the "AK-9" also:

    Interesting , but the odd size bullet just kills it for me . Make it
    True 35 cal (.358) it be mo better . A ruger mini 35 has a nice ring to it with the availibity to load anything from a95 gr up to say 250-280 gr bullet . Basicly be a 357 max in semi auto platform .
    If you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck!

    Like RU shooter, I have an issue with the bullet size. .356" is fine for handguns where there are plenty of bullets available, but I don't think I've ever seen a 9mm bullet that was over 147-158gr, let alone a 259gr bullet like the 9x39 uses.

    35 cal would definitely be better for an American market. The bullets and the molds are already out there, and they're plentiful.
