The Adams Arms AA19 includes features that inspire EDC and competition.

Known for piston-driven AR firearms and handgun barrel and slide innovations, Adams Arms just harnessed its experience into one complete pistol. The Adams Arms AA19 utilizes features that inspire daily carry and boost potential during competition.

Adams Arms AA19 Details

Riding atop the polymer frame is Adams Arms’ VS19 slide, with front and rear cocking serrations. The cocking serrations provide improved manipulation and slide geometry. Further, the VS19 slide is cut from stainless steel and has black nitride coating for a corrosion resistant, long-wearing finish. Profiled to be lighter, the slide also features a cut for optics.

Mounting plates are available for many popular optics models, including Trijicon RMR, Leupold Deltapoint, Shield RMS, Burris Fastfire 3, Vortex Venom/Viper, Vortex Razor, and C-More STS. However, if you opt to go without optics the AA19 includes Ameriglo Defoor EDC sights.

The slide houses a threaded 1:16-inch twist barrel, ready to fit 9mm suppressors and compensators, with included thread protector. Additionally, just behind the ejection port is a billet extractor, ensuring smooth case extraction.

Constructed of polymer, the frame features refined ergonomics and enhanced texturing on the grip. Forward of the double undercut trigger guard is a 1913 Picatinny rail for a rail mount laser or flashlight. Nestled within the trigger guard is the Tango Down Vickers Tactical Carry Trigger. The flat profile trigger is designed to reduce pistol movement during your shot, while giving a perceived lighter trigger press.
