    Finally the Glock (sort of) carbine is a reality!

    Some of you may have seen it at SHOT but Lone Wolf Dist is coming out with a 9mm AR that accepts only Glock magazines.

    This is what JR told me via PM (I'm posting this with his approval):
    There were a few SHOT Show threads started but I do not remember where they were. They called it the "sleeper" of the show because we did not have it in the new products section. You had to visit our booth to see it or hear anything about it. Some people are calling it an Olympic but they are ignorant. This is an original casting (LWD owns the molds!) machined to LWD specifications. Lowers will be available in 6 weeks or less. The lower is machined to accept Glock mags only, everything else is mill spec. This lower will accept any mill spec 9mm upper.

    JR
    And this is what he had to say in one of the threads over on GT:
    Yes we unveiled a new AR 9mm that accepts Glock mags at SHOT Show last week. The receivers will be available in 4 to 6 weeks. The complete carbine by Summer. I will start a AR thread as soon as I have pics available. Sorry for detracting from the subject
    So it sounds like we can get 9mm carbines that will accept Glock mags and we don't have to deal with Olympic! I know markm will be heartbroken

    I'm pretty excited about this because I have a metric ton of Glock magazines here and plenty of 9mm ammo on hand. I've been wanting to build a 9mm carbine but didn't want to deal with the magazine hassle.

    I'll post pictures as I find them.

    Interesting. If this pans out, I'll have to SBR one of these lowers.

    Thanks for the info!!!

    The "magazine hassle" - as you call it - is what's kept me from building a 9mm AR as well. I would buy one of these lowers in a heartbeat.

    If this becomes reality, I'll have a Olyarms 9mm (Glock Mag) AR for sale -- but I am keeping the mags for the new one!!

    I've always wished that there was a way to adapt Glock 17 mags to my Beretta CX4...
    I don't think Beretta would be to happy about this however.

    If only Glock would actually put out a real Glock carbine, I would be sure to get on the buyers list.

    It will be interesting to see what Lone Wolf has developed.

    There was a picture floating around but I can't seem to find it. Hopefully JR from LW will be posting some soon!

    I like the idea of a non-Olympic dedicated Glock magged 9mm AR. Other than Colt, RRA, and (soon) LoneWolf what are the other uppers available that are compatible?


    I tried searching for the SHOT pics, but came up empty handed.
