Angstadt Arms MDP-9 Gen 2

In the realm of pistol caliber carbines (PCCs), the prevalence of direct blowback systems is notable. These systems operate by utilizing a substantial bolt and spring to counteract the recoil produced by handgun ammunition. Despite their cost-effectiveness and functionality, such designs can result in PCCs that are somewhat cumbersome and awkward to handle.

Enter the Angstadt Arms MDP-9 Gen 2, a game-changer in the PCC domain. This PCC employs a roller-delayed blowback mechanism, striking a remarkable balance between compactness and operational efficiency.

Angstadt Arms' innovative engineering is evident in this model, which significantly alters the PCC landscape and underscores their dedication to enhancing the user experience.

Chambered for the 9mm Luger cartridge, the MDP-9 Gen 2 is compatible with Glock magazines. It features a 5.9-inch barrel equipped with a three-lug muzzle apparatus, ready to accommodate a suppressor or flash hider.

The upper receiver of the MDP-9 Gen 2 is crafted as a single piece, complete with a Picatinny rail for the straightforward attachment of optics or sights. Additionally, the handguard is furnished with M-LOK slots, providing ample opportunity for accessorizing. The lower receiver is designed with ambidextrous controls, including a switchable safety selector and a well-designed trigger, enhancing the firearm's versatility. Moreover, the MDP-9 is adaptable to various AR-9 triggers, allowing for a customized shooting experience.

The hallmark of the MDP-9 Gen 2 is its innovative roller-delayed blowback system. This mechanism employs rollers to secure the bolt in place until the internal pressure decreases, facilitating the use of a lighter bolt and diminishing recoil. The result is a more manageable firearm that enables quicker successive shots.
