Yep, everyone is getting into the pistol caliber carbine game these days. Can’t blame them — the market seems pretty excited about the prospect of shelling out big bucks for the guns. The space is starting to get a little crowded, what with two MP5 importers, the SIG SAUER MPX, a 9mm AK rifle, and the CZ Scorpion already announced, but POF-USA thinks that they’ve got a winner in their PSG 9mm carbine, revealed at the NRA Annual Meetings . . .
The gun looks pretty much like a SIG SAUER MPX, but without some of the bells and whistles.
Instead of a proprietary magazine, they appear to use Colt mags. Instead of a gas piston design, it looks like some direct blowback variation. And rather than re-designing the upper receiver to use a new recoil system, they just shoved it behind the bolt carrier while still making it small enough to work without a buffer tube. In short, it’s a less complex MPX that does the same job but without some of the extra added features.
Here’s the best part. MSRP? $999.99, or $400 less than the MPX. There’s also a customized pistol brace from the SB Tactical guys that will be on offer with the gun, which looks flippin’ sweet.
