Most shooters know Stag Arms as a producer of AR-15 rifles and carbines. The company is particularly known for its left-handed models. Unfortunately, the company isn’t building a left-hand version of its latest creation — the Stag PXC-9. At least not yet.

Available in four versions — all chambered in 9mm — these carbines come with features many shooters wanted in pistol-caliber carbines. This includes the bolt locking back on the last round, and using magazines from one of the most popular pistols in the country — Glock.

“The Stag PXC-9 Series is the newest edition to our ever-evolving line-up of AR-style firearms,” said Anthony Ash, President for Stag Arms, LLC. “By looking at the proprietary bolt and the enhanced features on the receivers, customers will notice that the Stag PXC Series stands out from the competition. This model not only reaffirms our commitment to producing high-quality and reliable firearms, but also our commitment to innovating for our customers.”

Available models include a 16-inch carbine, 10-inch pistol, 10-inch SBR and a 5.5-inch pistol. All four, however, come with the Stag PXC bolt. Stag custom designed this bolt to mate with the cone breech in the barrel, ensuring the strength, safety, smooth feeding and reliability. It works in conjunction with the extractor, ejector, and the optimized PXC ejection port and brass deflector in the upper receiver combines to give strong, reliable, and consistent ejection of the fired cases.

Stag plans to introduce .40 S&W, .45 ACP and 10 mm models in August, with a left-hand model in 2020.
