Rock River Arms offers versions of the LAR-9 with SB Tactical Brace in two different barrel lengths, 7 and 10.5 inches. A compact pistol, Rock River Arms says the braces “deliver greater muzzle control, platform stability and accuracy in this short package.” Further, Rock River bills the new offerings “as a logical ‘go-to’ firearm for personal on-the-go and home defense.”
Rock River builds all of its LAR-9 pistols on the company’s own lower receiver assembly. Also, the lower features an integral 9mm compatible magazine well for reliable feeding, according to Rock River Arms. Additionally, the platform uses the popular Colt SMG-style magazine for feeding. The LAR-9 also includes a 9mm-specific trigger spring group and ejector. Finally, a forged upper receiver, blowback-design bolt carrier group, modified port door and case deflector round out the package.
With the SB Tactical Brace setup, Rock River Arms offers two different barrel lengths. Both the 7- and 10.5-inch barrels utilize 1:10 rifling and the company’s own aluminum free-float handguard. Moreover, the handguards feature M-LOK compatibility for accessory mounting. Additionally, the 10-inch barrel uses the 9.25-inch mid-length size handguard. Meanwhile, the 7-inch model sports a 6-inch extended-length handguard.
