Rock River Arms understands that more and more competition shooters are choosing to participate in matches with pistol-caliber carbine divisions. So they created a competition ready, accurate and reliable new carbine chambered in 9mm to meet that demand. Called the LAR-9 R9 Competition Rifle ($1,565), it is based on RRA’s time-proven LAR-9 direct-gas-impingement carbine.

It features a forged A4 upper without forward assist, 16-inch chain-link fluted stainless steel barrel rifled at a 1:10” twist rate and a 9mm Mini-Brake muzzle device threaded at 1/2” x 36 TPI. The lower is a forged LAR-9 with integral 9mm magwell and all standard controls mounted on the left side. Other features include RRA’s excellent 2-stage trigger, extended mid-length handguard with Picatinny top rail, Hogue rubber pistol grip and RRA Operator CAR buttstock. It comes with one Colt-type stick magazine, lockable hard case and limited lifetime warranty. Contact Rock River Arms, Dept. OT; Tel.: (866) 980-ROCK; Web: www.rockriverarms.com
