JR Carbine

6 posts in this topic

I have one as well.  Shoots good, bear to take apart and clean but ultrasonic does a great job.  What first interested me was the FCG is all AR based, as well as the barrel mounting.  Will take AR pistol grips and stocks. Both handle and ejection port can be mounted to either side but not quite up to par on how they did it.  No LRBHO feature, just a straight blow back like a 10/22.  Downfall is bolt and magwell assembly, kind of finicky if not installed properly.  I do not have any FTE/FTF issues with it.  I have both the 9 and 45 kits for it.  I will keep it and shoot it, but if I was looking for one today, I would look at some others first.  Lone Wolf, Thureon, and FX-9 sold by Classic Arms.  Originally purchased for using Glock mags as I have this crazy thing about PCCs that shoot same mags/ammo as my handguns esp when when shooting steel.  Addicted to timed steel events, when not shooting clays.

I purchased one last year and so far am happy with it.  Model # JRJAxxxxxx. The fact it uses my existing Glock mags (any size 9mm) and my 9mm ammo was a deciding factor for me.  So far I have shot 500 rounds through it without significant issues.  (I believe the older ones had issues which have since been corrected.)   I find dis-assembly and re-assembly easy even though mine has a nut holding on the stock and is not their newer quick attachment coupling version.  As with my other firearms, I plan on keeping it indefinitely.  So have ordered various spare parts from their webiste to keep on hand.  

I purchased it from Garden State Shooting Center who had ordered it for me.

I was looking to purchase one but went with the Sub2000 instead. But I seen an AR9 that is probably gonna be my next buy. It's the freedom Ordnance FX-9 check it out Classic firearms .com sell them exclusively. Takes Glock magazines and has all the features a regular AR has ever. The last round bolt over feature. With a few tweaks it can be NJ legal ( ships with 32 round mag, flash hider and collapsible stock. I have contacted them and they said they would ship to a NJ FFL that can agree to make the compliance work and they would ship it without the magazine.
