Rock River Arms expands their LAR-9 line of 9mm-chambered semi-auto pistols. The new models deliver a similar performance to RRA's original LAR-9 pistols but come with new handguards and are fitted with SB Tactical Pistol Stabilizing Braces.
Available with either a 7-inch or 10.5-inch barrel, the LAR-9 pistols utilize the SB Tactical Braces to deliver greater muzzle control, platform stability, and accuracy.
The new models are built on the Rock River Arms 9mm lower receiver assembly, similar to the original LAR-9 A4 pistols, which features an integral 9mm compatible magazine well (as opposed to a mag block conversion) that can utilize Colt SMG-style magazines. Also included is a 9mm-specific trigger spring group and ejector. Topside, the LAR-9s begin with RRA's A4 9mm forged upper receiver, to which are added the blowback-design bolt carrier group, modified port door, and case deflector.
Two barrel configurations are offered with an SB Tactical Brace setup—a 7-inch chrome moly and a 10.5-inch chrome-lined chrome moly version, both with 1:10 rifling for optimal bullet stabilization. Each model is standard with a lightweight aluminum free-float handguard. These handguards are M-LOK compatible so accessories such as tactical lights or lasers can be mounted. The 10.5-inch barrel model uses the 9.25-inch mid-length version of this handguard while the 7-inch model is equipped with the 6-inch extended-length handguard.
Additional features common to the 7-inch and 10.5-inch barrel length pistols include a rubber Hogue grip, single-stage trigger assembly and includes one Colt SMG-style magazine.
