Shortest I have is 10.5", but i keep a Silencerco Saker K on it. Makes a world of difference.

This one has a Recce 5 on it, and like you, I figure it's going to be a permanent home. I did get the blast shield for the taper mount and that helps a bit... but damn... :D

Don't know. Called my gunsmith buddy to tell him I was shipping a lower to him, told him I couldn't find a glock lower, was gonna convert a normie... he said he had a few in his personal stash he'd hook me up with one. Didn't even ask him what brand. He's got really expensive taste in guns, I'm sure it'll be a keeper for what he hit my card for lol

Hopefully its a spikes as they have LRBHO. When I was searching I couldn't find the lower that had LRBHO and didn't cost an arm and a leg. Went to Crusader Tactical on 101st and S Elm PL in BA to browse and low and behold they had a matched ST upper and lower in 9mm. Ended up dropping 700 that day for most of my build, just had to order a barrel, flash can and handguard. Then had to buy a wrench for the barrel nut, then buy a different wrench, then a different upper vise block... yeah.

I’ve built an AR9 with Hahn block, and an AR45 with Circle 10 lower, and they were very nice with no issues. I ended up selling both of them. My Sig MPX beatS them both, hands down.

How so? Just curious, because of the price of a MPX I could build a dedicated lower PCC and still have enough money to buy 1k rounds even at today's prices.

Have you shot an MPX? If not, it’s hard to describe, but IMVHO, the fit, finish, and quality of the MPX and the smoothness of its action put to shame my best efforts with a home-built AR pistol. Plus, and again this is just me, but I think it looks a heck of a lot better with its purpose-built mag well and curved mags as opposed to the somewhat cobbled-together appearance of an AR9/45 with a straight mag sticking out at an odd angle relative to the mag well. They are pricey, but to me, they’re well worth the money.

The CZ Scorpion also puts my 9mm ARs to shame. So much faster splits. Lighter, handier, I'm not even sure the AR platform can compete in any area other than possibly durability and price depending on specifics of build.

I LOVE my MPX but still kinda sorta want a Circle 10 setup that uses P226 Mags. MPX isnt going anywhere, but if I decide on another PCC (one thats less compact) I think I'll go that route.

I thought you sold your MPX? I remember searching on here for info when I was looking at them and saw the ads....

Well, if you liked curved mags I guess. As far as the "mag sticking out at an odd angle" my spikes ar9 lower has the mags straight down, just like an AR. I'd have to shoot a MPX and compare it to my build. I will say your MPX probably has a better accuracy simply because I went cheap on the barrel for now, but between the parts and tools I had already blown my budget. For something though that is going to be close range (home defense) and range fun it will more than suffice. Plus, I like building my AR's.
