9mm Duty Rifles Right and Left Hand – Stag Arms–SHOT Show 2015

The Model 9, from Stag, is a stripped down pistol caliber carbine. Their take on the 9mm rifle is unique. While a lot of the ones on the market are racing to the bottom on weight and overall length, Stag is embracing tradition and building a solid rifle. The Model 9 is in line with the quality you’d expect from Stag.

The 9 T is even more impressive. I’m a fan of the Diamondhead rail and sights, so this feel very natural to me. While it costs a bit more, it wouldn’t cost as much as you might spend trying to deck it out yourself. Check specs below, and watch for a review shortly.

Stag is partnering with Diamondhead, one of the best. Their sights are excellent.

Pistol caliber performance from a full-sized rifle. Impressive.

    This was a great idea about 12 years ago when it was called the Beretta Storm. If you need to go to a rifle you obviously need more power. Dress it up all you like it’s still not an effective rifle.

    someone does make one that takes glock mags, lone wolf, just right and mgi off the top of my head. Do a google search

    Palmetto State Armory, has 9mm rifle kit for
    $499.99, plus shipping. Then you just need a stripped lower, a magazine & some ammunition and your ready to “Rock & Roll”.
    Be safe!

    Why can’t someone make a AR based 9mm that takes glock mags?

      Hello Joe: Read my comments I posted for MrBrett on Glock 9mm carbines using your Glock Magazines.

  • Mr Brett February 6, 2015, 1:46 pm

    In before “another answer to a question no one is asking”. I have a dedicated 9mm AR and love it.
