    Anybody here have one? I think they came out around July of 2017. Out of stock now, but supposedly coming back in 1Q or 2Q.

    Looks like either 8.3" or 16".

    Thinking the 8.3" version with my pending Octane 45K could be a really fun range toy. (Other thing I was looking at was the MechTech CCU)

    I bet the 16 doesn't offer any better performance. I keep watching for these but they are never in stock.

    I have an Olympic AR45 that was 11.5".
    Once I had an SBR, I chopped it to 7".

    Accuracy increased. Reliability was not effected.

    I've considered the JR carbine.

    Uggh...why can't they set their notification system up to not send this crap out for something not in stock!!

    Received an email with the subject "We think this could be just what you need."

    This shit is so annoying to me!

    I think QC10 offers a .45 platform as well. And you can always build one from the Bazooka Brothers lower that uses Uzi or grease gun mags.

    Just figured out how to save $200. I was planning on SBRing this one if I bought it. I always do dedicated SBRs instead of swapping uppers.

    Well, I have an SBR now that I'm about to make a pistol once the Form 1 can is done. Now I can just swap the two uppers and not have to register another...which is nice even if they're being approved in under 2 weeks.


    Nevermind...completely forgot about the lower being designed around Glock 21 mags. Guess I'll be filing a Form 1 if I don't want to leave it as a pistol.

    Bought four 27rd mags for this today. Maybe one day in the next 6 months I’ll own the firearm.

    ...and the silencer is Pending as of 11/5/18.

    I hate you for your can to already be pending. That was your free one from SiCo right?

    Yep. Part of the fiasco involving the wrong cans being sent to THSF, and then when he called to straighten it out they said I wasn’t in the system at all for a free one. :confused:

    At least you got the damn thing! I've got to call Carolina Gunrunners tomorrow and see if they've heard or seen anything.
