For $40 more, I'll take the M&P 9 1.0.
I was about to jump on one of these but ran into some old posts about it not being all the quiet and some have split in half, those posts from 2+ years ago though
300 blackout isn't a fad; it's quickly becoming a well-established caliber.
I saw one of their 300 AAC pistol kits for $299.99 yesterday. At that rate, I'll be building one soon. I would guess ammo price will only go down as popularity increases. I do generally prefer the heavier grain ammo, especially for personal defense, although I find it unlikely that I would be using an AR Pistol for that purpose. For me it would essentially be a range weapon only, or perhaps home defense if there's a safe way to do that with this caliber.
They have always price matched within 7 days for me.
You get a Magpul equipped lower for $129.99 and a LCP for $159.99. Good deal. Transfer them to a dealer which only charges you once per visit and not per firearm.
Would it work on a 6.5 Creedmoor?
a $35 rebate is available until December 31, 2018 (edit: thanks for updating the title)
It looks like Taurus learned about the problem with Ruger LCP takedown pin and modified their design. This is similarly how I fixed my LCP, by filing a deeper groove in the pin so it must be rotated.
If this Taurus comes with 2 mags, then $199.99 (before rebate) comes pretty close to what I paid for my LCP after I bought a 7-round mag and a recoil calibration pack. The Ruger did come with a pocket holster which is handy.
I purchased one about a week after the dealer posted it, thought $399 was high considering the description. But next best thing was another used one for $499 and a new one for $629,so I took a chance. After the shipping charge and ffl xfer fee it brought my total to $439. Grips and recoil spring were shot,put on some cheap like new used factory grips and a new green recoil spring,all else was good on the inspection. Overall the gun is tight and shoots really well,barrel is in good shape,the night sights do work but are dim,All 3 8-round mags are in great shape and the finish is fair to good.
Well it does seem to be their normal price on UMC, but free shipping on $25 makes it the best deal if I don't want to buy 1000 rounds.
The Winchester does claim higher muzzle energy though. 362 ft lbs versus 329 on the Remington. I don't know if that equates to any noticeable difference in recoil. Maybe on very light pistols.
