Colona, IL –-(Ammoland.com)- Rock River Arms, the leader in specialized Modern Sporting Rifles and purpose-built tactical firearms expands their LAR-9 line of 9mm-chambered semi-auto pistols. These new models deliver the same reliable performance as RRA’s original LAR-9 pistols but come with new handguards and are fitted with SB Tactical Pistol Stabilizing Braces.
Available with either a 7-inch or 10.5-inch barrel, the LAR-9 pistols utilize the SB Tactical Braces to deliver greater muzzle control, platform stability, and accuracy in this short package. As a result, the new LAR-9s make an even greater case for employing the 9mm pistol configuration as a logical “go-to” firearm for personal on-the-go and home defense (when used in compliance with applicable jurisdiction laws).
As with the original LAR-9 A4 pistols, these new models are built on RRA’s own 9mm lower receiver assembly, which features an integral 9mm compatible magazine well (as opposed to a mag block conversion) for reliable ammo feeding and utilizes Colt SMG-style magazines. Also included is a 9mm-specific trigger spring group and ejector. Topside, the LAR-9s begin with RRA’s A4 9mm forged upper receiver, to which are added the blowback-design bolt carrier group, modified port door, and case deflector.
Two barrel configurations are offered with an SB Tactical Brace setup—a 7-inch chrome moly and a 10.5-inch chrome-lined chrome moly version, both with 1:10 rifling for optimal bullet stabilization. Each model is standard with RRA’s stylish and ergonomic lightweight aluminum free-float handguard. These handguards are M-LOK compatible so accessories such as tactical lights or lasers can be conveniently mounted. The 10.5-inch barrel model uses the 9.25-inch mid-length version of this handguard while the 7-inch model is equipped with the 6-inch extended-length handguard.
Additional features common to the 7-inch and 10.5-inch barrel length pistols include a rubber Hogue grip, single-stage trigger assembly and includes one Colt SMG-style magazine.

About Rock River Arms:
In 1996, brothers Mark and Chuck Larson founded Rock River Arms in an 1,800 square foot shop in Cleveland, Illinois. Mark and Chuck together brought over 40 years of varied experience in the firearms manufacturing industry into their new endeavor. Rock River Arms soon developed a reputation as one of the finest builders of hand fitted custom 1911 pistols, and their NM frames and slides set new industry standards for tight tolerances, fit and finish.
The brothers soon turned their manufacturing expertise and attention to detail into producing custom .223 caliber “AR” style rifles. Their initial focus on tightening up tolerances and improving the fit, finish and reliability of their rifles was rewarded as the Rock River Arms NM A2 Rifle quickly gained popularity among high-power shooters.
Today, operating out of approximately 50,000 square foot (and growing) state-of-the-art facilities in Colona, Illinois, the company is producing a full line of custom rifles, parts and accessories, all built with the same focus on providing the finest fit, finish and function at a reasonable price.
The quality and reliability of Rock River Arms firearms continues to win new admirers. The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) put a variety of different manufacturer’s rifles through an exhaustive trials process, and based on those trials awarded Rock River Arms with a 5 year contract as their primary supplier. Since that time Rock River Arms has received additional federal contracts.
Rock River Arms remains committed to continuing to provide its civilian, law enforcement and military customers with the kind of custom products and services on which its reputation has been built.
