I’m calling it now: SHOT Show 2015 is the year of the pistol caliber carbine. From the MPX to the Scoprion EVO 3, everyone and their brother is all about the 9mm. Angstadt Arms is on board, coming out in 2015 with a brand new pistol caliber… pistol. It’s a 9mm version of an AR-15, but unlike some other GLOCK magazine-based guns the lower receiver is specifically designed for that mag — no adapter required. MSRP is going to be right around $1k, so expect to see them on the shelves for slightly less. Presser after the jump . . .
Angstadt Arms is proud to announce the official unveiling of the UDP-9 at the 2015 SHOT Show in Las Vegas. The UDP-9 redefines the pistol caliber carbine. Designed specifically for urban environments and close quarter combat, the UDP-9 is a compact, personal defense weapon chambered in 9mm and fed with GLOCK® magazines.
Its compact size makes it ideal for home defense, security detail, law enforcement and anywhere space is at a premium. With models available for both prepared citizens, law enforcement officers and military personnel, the UDP-9 is easily configurable for any application.
Built upon our 0940 7075-T6 billet aluminum receiver set, the UDP-9 can be modified to run .40 S&W and .357 Sig in addition to 9mm GLOCK® magazines. And because it accepts the same magazine as the most popular handgun in the world, backup comes standard without the need to carry alternate magazines and ammunition cartridges.
To maximize training efficiency, the lower receiver features standard AR-15 controls and utilizes only a handful of proprietary parts, ensuring compatibility with most all aftermarket AR-15 Mil-Spec components. The UPD-9 is instantly familiar to anyone experienced with the AR-15 rifle.
The UDP-9 is a closed bolt, blowback operated system. It’s driven by our 9mm bolt carrier group which is compatible with existing GLOCK® and Colt® 9mm AR platforms.
With suppression in mind, the 5” 9mm barrel is made from 4140 chrome-moly steel and features a 1-10” twist. Aiding your grip on the weapon is a 5.5” free float KeyMod hand guard which provides an uninterrupted top picatinny rail out to the A2 style flash suppressor. The UDP-9 is proudly made in the U.S.A. and comes with a full lifetime warranty.
