Talking Okay, there, two days have passed by...

THUREON DEFENSE LLC. 9mm caliber

THUREON DEFENSE LLC. is a Wisconsin-based company that has recently introduced on the market a 9x19mm-caliber carbine for civilian applications (sporting, self-defense), based on the AR-15 rifle design.

According to the company, the components of the carbine are "machined from the best materials on state-of-the-art, computer controlled machining centers". The receiver is designed to control the cartridge as it is fed from the magazine into the chamber. Careful attention to the dynamics of the feeding and ejecting cycle have enabled THUREON DEFENSE LLC. to manufacture a carbine that will work under the worst of conditions with the broadest range of ammunition. Still according to the manufacturing company, the price of the 9mm carbine will be comparable to the cost of conversion units that fit the standard AR-15 lower receiver.

--TECHNICAL SPECS--
CALIBER: 9x19mm (a.k.a. 9mm "Luger" / "Parabellum" / NATO)
CAPACITY: 30 rounds in detachable magazine

TRIGGER: AR-15 trigger components
WEIGHT: 6 lb. 2 oz. unloaded
