Pistol caliber carbines first appeared soon after metallic cartridges became common. These were developed as "companions" to the popular relovers of the day, firing the same cartridge but allowing more velocity and accuracy than the revolver. These were carried by cowboys, lawmen, and others in the Old West. The primary advantage of a carbine over a pistol using the same ammunition is controllability. The combination of firing from the shoulder, longer sight-radius, 3 points of contact (firing hand, support hand & shoulder), and precision offer a significantly more user-friendly platform. The longer barrel can offer increased velocity and, with it, greater energy and effective range due to the propellant having more time to burn.

9mm upper receiverThe upper was very good quaulity and fit perfect on my lower receiver.J. H.
My new favorite AR!I have to be honest, I was a little skeptical about this upper. I was looking for all the parts to put together a 9 upper, and got discouraged because it seemed that everyone was out of stock on the different things I wanted. I saw AR15parts upper in a search for a barrel, and thought that it looked interesting. I will cut to the chase, I purchased the upper in July, and with a QC10 lower and BCG, it seems like a perfect match. I am now about 1500 rounds deep on this combo, and couldn't be happier! This upper is well built, the forend is just right, and the fit and finish is outstanding for the price. I will also add that this gun has not had one failure to feed, and is very accurate to boot. I have run a lot of different reloads, all different bullet weights, sizes, and power factors through it, and it gobbles them up. All and all a great set up, buy with confidence and enjoy. This is my new favorite AR!Pat Byers

Looks great, excellent priceExcellent looking upper, nice fit and finish, will go great on our special lower.Bob
excellent productFirst of all, delivery was prompt - about 3 days after ordering it. Finish is great. I've had no functional problems using Colt 25 rd and 32 round mags, nor any with 32 rd "C-Products" mags. Very accurate, shooting consistent 1" 5-shot groups at 50 yards with both my hand loads and PMC Bronze 115gr 9mm ammo. Nothing to complain about. No regrets at all!Leonard Todd
Very good upperI and I repeat I had a small problem with the dust cover and when I contacted them they responded immediately. The problem I was having was getting the cover to close, they assured me that it would take a little time to break in since it was knew. After I work it open and close several times it got easier and easier to close, they where right and very helpful, I recommend this part and AR15part.Bruce Quinn
