    Does anyone on here have one yet?

    $439 + transfer fee for a Glock-mag fed lightweight toy sounds like a lot of fun-per-dollar.

    Pretty cool.
    Looks like an ATF honeypot for forward grip attachment.

    Been out of stock for as long as I can remember. iirc it is only sold from their website. They claim to have them on Wednesday evenings I think. But I’ve not seen it ever show availability. Is a neat looking “pistol”. I’ve heard good things about the lrbho as well. Haven’t found any reviews that claim it to be of poor quality even though it’s primarily polymer.

    Tagged for interest. Been looking st it for a long time & just when I think I can get it, I start to have doubts about a 9mm AR pistol, vs a 5.56 AR pistol. :confused:

    An update..... I have looked on their site at 7pm Eastern and the so indeed show stock for several hours on Monday, Wed, and Fri.

    What an odd way of marketing. It’s better than being vaguely “backordered” I guess. Or some waiting list. At least when you order one, you get some confirmation.


    Doing some reading, it looks like Extar might be the same people who brought out the Carbon 15. First time I picked one of those up, I wanted it so badly. Long before they sold out to Bushmaster. The Carbon 15s did not get a good reputation though.

    I’d have wagered a red dot would be more appropriate for one of these... and definitely a nice suppressor. :D

    I’ve heard cutting up old bike tires and securing them to the grip works well for an improved grip...

    Just picked up one of these second hand (got a deal) with an AT3 red dot sight. This one has a B5 pistol grip and a Fab Defense fore grip. Came with a 33 round mag (Glock). Played around with it this afternoon, taking it apart and putting it back together. Looked like you could drop a trigger group in, so I stuck an extra Risa Armament trigger in, but had to replace the safety select for it to work. Trying to get to the range to see how much fun this can be!

    It did fit right in. The stock pin is plastic, and for now, I chose not to replace it, but I think I will if the trigger works well.

    This Might be the next evolution for us with the Roni. Ima think on it and what it might offer that the Roni doesn't give us. Any help would be appreciated. Right now the Roni has a mini Bushnell red dot and no other mods. I'm new to this and am so taken with the concept I could easily be swayed to this but help me as to what it would offer me extra over Mr. Roni???

    I have only seen a Roni, never handled one.

    I can’t imagine the Extar is a clear Roni-beater (especially if you already have a Roni).

    If it matters to you, the Extar has the same controls as an AR, so it can be used for training.

    It uses the same grips as an AR, so you have some options there.

    Extar has a bolt-release. Roni you have to rack the slide to drop the slide from the open position.


    Roni is the winner if you are looking for more distance from shoulder-to-grip.
    Extar wins in distance from firing hand to support-hand (more=better).
    Extar allows mag-well-grip, if you like that sort of thing.


    If I already owned a Glock and a Roni... I’d be hard pressed to find a driving need for an Extar.

    I can suppress the Extar today (if I had one), but I can't do that with a Roni.

    Thanks Ole Pard but not a deciding factor for me.

    This is what you need @BatteryOaksBilly it will take you back to the 60s. No need for evolution. Nothing smoother than a roller delayed blowback.

    In fact I have Total access to the Real Deal. I seldom shoot it suppressed but can if I wish.

    Shot it subsonic suppressed yet? I wonder if there is less bolt slap than an AR 9.​

    Hoping to get out to the range this weekend with mine. Anxious to see if the drop in trigger works well.

    Make sure the Fab defense grip is not a vertical foregrip, as that can get you into trouble, as Slacker cleverly pointed out.

    It's a 3/4 foregrip, not vertical, thanks.

    One of the reasons I prefer flat trigger shoes on AR's. They tend to set the trigger face further forward.

    IMG_3563_Moment.jpg IMG_3563_Moment 1.jpg IMG_3563_Moment 2.jpg Hit the range today and ran about 150 rounds through it. Rise Armament trigger did very well. AT3 red dot site that it came with was already zeroed in. Took just about every shot from 40 to 50 yards and it was a blast!
