New From CMMG: BANSHEE Line of ARs and DefCan Line of Suppressors

CMMG BANSHEE DefCan

This morning, CMMG, a company well-known for unique AR-pattern rifles and .22 LR AR conversion kits, announced two new product lines: The BANSHEE line of ultra-compact factory SBRs and braced pistols have the shortest barrels CMMG offers in all of the available calibers, while the DefCan line keeps them quiet with lightweight suppressors for rifle, pistol, and rimfire calibers. Reviews are coming soon, but for now you’ll find CMMG’s press releases on the new products below . . .

Introducing CMMG’s New Ultra-Compact BANSHEE Line

Boonville, MO–CMMG has announced the addition of a new series of short barreled rifles (SBR’s) and AR Pistols that will be known as the BANSHEE line.  The BANSHEE’s sleek new design sports the shortest barrels CMMG offers in 9mm, .45 ACP, 300 BLK and .22 Long Rifle.   This ultra-compact and lightweight platform is extremely portable, making the BANSHEE a great option for close protection, home defense, plinking, competition shooting or any other application that benefits from the reduced size.

Each version of the BANSHEE sports CMMG’s new ambidextrous charging handle, as well as an ambidextrous sling plate and ambidextrous safety selector.  The BANSHEE comes standard with CMMG’s Premier Cerakote finish, an RML M-LOK Hand Guard and a Magpul MOE Pistol Grip.  The AR Pistol versions each come with a Tailhook Mod 2 Brace.

The SBR versions (all NFA rules apply) come equipped with a Magpul MVG Foregrip and will feature CMMG’s new RipStock.  The RipStock is a new compact butt stock that is fully machined out of 6061-T6 AL and Cerakoted by CMMG.  The RipStock features two of CMMG’s patent pending technologies: FASTBACK and P3. Thanks to FASTBACK Technology, users can simply pull straight back to extend the stock without worrying about a release lever like most AR butt stocks employ.  It also features personal position presets (P3 Technology) that allow users to adjust a screw into one of five slots to ensure the stock extends to the same position each time.

The 9mm and .45 ACP BANSHEEs feed from factory Glock magazines and utilize CMMG’s patent pending Radial Delayed Blowback operating system.  The benefit of the Radial Delayed Blowback system is that it allows CMMG to use a lighter buffer and carrier than the typical straight blowback design.  This reduction in reciprocating mass ensures that both the 9mm and .45 ACP version of the BANSHEE are easily controllable.

    Those are some good looking SBR’s and pistols

      Sorry I’m late. I wore out my scroll bar getting down here.

      9mm SBR takes glock mags so I’ll buy it. Wicked looking little things aren’t they. Filling a void without breaking the bank.

        Pretty colors makes them worth $1500? Yeah sure

        1. avatar Flinch says:

          Pretty colors make them worth $1499.95. Absolutely.

          Fifteen hundred? No way!

          See the difference? My wife does. But then again, I did meet her on ProGunDating.com. Perhaps you could try it?

    Anybody else have trouble accessing David Codrea’s War on Guns blog?
    Is it just me or did David get silenced?

      BLOG BACK UP this is the statement from the page. Thursday two readers reported a pop up warning when they tried to access it, so to be safe I set the blog to private to keep things contained until I can figure out what’s what, if anything– my friend is a pro and he has found no malicious code:

    I want to see pics of the bolt in the delayed blowback. Sounds like it’s new and possibly innovative.

      Still a blowback, but the time it takes for the bolt to rotate and unlock delays the action so pressure can drop in the barrel, etc etc, and the bolt doesn’t come back as soon or as hard. It does definitely make the gun quieter and less gassy vs. an AR-9 with a straight blowback action and it may shoot softer, too.

    This is some interesting stuff

    These SBR’s would be great for drive by shootings

      Like they aim in a drive by? Lame.
