Trojan Firearms has introduced its new line of 9 mm AR platform carbines: the PRO9V1 series. These rifles are not just converted AR-15s, but the Phoenix, Ariz- based company specifically designed a pistol-caliber carbine from the ground up for superior reliability, whilst still retaining the handling of the standard AR platform. During the engineering process, particular attention was given to improve the common issues found in the majority of 9 mm carbine blowback gas systems.
All PRO9V1 rifles are CNC machined using high-grade aircraft billet aluminum in the lower, upper and hand rail. The lower features Teflon coated springs and detent pins, as well as an enhanced flared mag well. The 16" lightweight contour barrel is made of 4150V steel with Nitride finish and features a Grater Gen II 9 mm tunable muzzle brake. Other great features on the PRO9V1 include a Gen II ambidextrous charging handle and the Trojan Firearms adjustable drop-in trigger group.
The two models in this new product series are the PRO9V1-G (MSRP $1,399) which is compatible with 9 mm Glock magazines, and the PRO9V1-M (MSRP $1,549.99) which is compatible with 9 mm MBX/STI 2011 magazines. The PRO9V1-G is also available in a California 2017 compliant version (MSRP $1,449.99).
