Is there currently any 9MM semi-automatic rifles on the market under $800 that are actually quality?
Just picking up some rifles before the election. I found another AR15 for under 800 but was curious what else was out there..... On your personal view of "quality".
Within the price range, off the top of my head....
Beretta makes the CX4 Storm that is modular, futuristic and polymer in construction. The weapon has very few components to take apart to clean, something along the lines of the Glock. It's light-weight, easy to carry. I have only played with them at SHOT, so I don't have any field info to provide I am afraid...
Olympic Arms makes this model. While this price is a little higher, I have seen them all over the internet in the $750 to $825 range. I have, now 2, Olympic Arms receivers now, one is finished and one I am building. They have treated me well so far.
Rumor had it that Microtech was going to turn out their AUG styled STG line up in a 9mm variant. I believe the price would be a little more than $800 though - however their gear is very well made, if you like the looks of the weapon.
What's the interest? Just out of curiosity...
Have any experience with this? Quality/reliability/accuracy? It's a pretty neat design, if it's built right.I believe that Kel-Tec has a rifle that accepts Glock 9mm magazines. Here is a link----http://www.kel-tec-cnc.com/sub2000.html
You can also get it in .40s&w.
Would you be kind enough to tell more about the gas system of the MP5? I understand how the AR operates.You might want to save a few more bucks and go out in search of an MP5. They are super easy to control and use a gas system that is superior to the ARs.
Actually the MP5, as well as all of the H&K rifles that pre-date the G36 series utilize a roller-delayed-blowback bolt locking system. It requires a physics degree to explain perfectly, but I can tell you that it has the following characteristics:Would you be kind enough to tell more about the gas system of the MP5?
