Some people also switch out the extractor to make sure it pulls out the empty 9mm shell cases. If you do this, which isn't necessary, but may increase dependability, you switch the extractor (to a...

Jon suggested mid-length. My primary AR is mid-length, which I find perfect for the platform. However, in terms of weight, doesn't the carbine help at least a bit?
