The subgun that I chose over an MPX

I wanted a 9mm subgun for work that I could form 1 and commute with in a backpack. I had a couple potential candidates.

MPX
Scorpon
Stribog
AR9
APC9

I ended up with APC9 PRO in FDE. It was really close between the 2 guns. But ultimately the APC won me over. Picked it up 2 days ago. Things are progressing quickly.

That FDE looks good.

I got a gen1 ghm9 SBR for cheap right as the gen2s came out. I kind of want the pro lower but not sure it's worth the cost.

Thanks. The GHM was my original choice until I saw the 9 PRO in FDE. The color is even better in person.

Ok, watching too many videos makes me wonder if you're going for the SMG stamp? Gotta admit - It's tempting!

Itís an Omega 9k. Itís super quiet with 300blk subs. I would imagine itís super quiet with 9mm as well.

Hey buddy. Oh yeah, form 1 wheels are turning. This is my only subgun. So Iím going balls deep.
Thinking about either the ACR stock or the ULSS from PMM. ACR stock looks incredible. But itís 12oz +, where as the ULSS is only 5oz. So some decisions need to be made. I may just get both stocks and run the ACR on the MCX

Why not keep that SEMI as a pistol...?

If you SBR it then many places will no longer allow it for CC...

Good question. To be honest Iím not a huge fan of braces. Although Iíd consider the ACR stock in FDE with the tail hook attachment.

So, this happened..

Should allow me to run the ACR and decide wether I want to spend the 200 on a stamp. At least Iíll be able to carry it concealed if I donít go the stamp route. Something for me to consider.

I like it...
Make sure it's a legal brace and reach to trigger is under 13.5"...
Maybe instead of adding to your stamp collection you could put the money towards a Franklin B&T-C1 trigger...?
Really looks comfy should you incidentally shoulder it from time to time...

Yeah, if brace is as sturdy as it looks I'd go with pistol. You have MCX SBR and APC pistol becomes very nice travel gun.

Thought about the Franklin trigger. But Iím afraid Iíll be taking a loss as far as quality trigger. Would rather install a Geissele and call it a day. Follow up shots seem to be fast enough for me.
