CMMG Launches New AR Pistols

April 10, 2014

AR manufacturer CMMG has developed a pair of AR pistols chambered in 9mm and 300 BLK. Borrowing from its line of short-barreled rifles, CMMG used the popular RKM7 free-float KeyMod handguards on their pistol series.

The company said that it launched the new AR pistols in response to customer feedback.

“We received a lot of feedback from our customers asking us to come out with a line of AR-style pistols,” said Jeff Overstreet, co-owner of CMMG Inc. “Like all the guns in the CMMG line, we’ve tried to keep the weight down and the quality of manufacturing to its highest standard so that you’ve got a gun that functions properly and is fun to shoot every time you take it to the range.”

The new Mk9 PDW Pistol is chambered in 9mm and comes with one 32-round magazine. The new Mk4 PDW Pistol is chambered in 300 BLK and comes with one 30-round Magpul PMAG. Each model comes with a Magpul MOE pistol grip, an A2 muzzle compensator and features an ambidextrous rear sling mount.

The RKM7 free-floating KeyMod handguard has slots located at the 3, 6 and 9 o’clock positions and allows users to mount compatible accessories directly to the hand guard. For accessories that are not yet compatible with the KeyMod system, CMMG offers separate five-slot rails that attached to the handguard. A full-length Picatinny rail runs across the top of the firearm. The pistol also comes with CMMG’s lifetime warranty. Both pistols are available at dealers now.
