need help, trying to buy an Ar-9 Pistol

So ive been looking into getting a ar-9 / pdw that will mostly be a range toy. I keep running into difficulties with either sellers or just Maryland law in general with the handgun roster.

This would have been perfect for budget and function, but not on the roster.
https://www.extarusa.com/ep9.htm

CZ scorpion - beautiful , pricey- but not on the roster

Freedom Ordnance FX-9 - awesome, but not on the roster.

So i figured why not just buy a complete upper and complete lower. PSA has had awesome prices so ill wait for them to have a glock lower in stock. turns out they dont ship AR or AK receivers to MD.

my question is, who has an Ar-9, did you buy it that way? build it? where did you buy the receiver from? etc...

any help would be greatly appreciated.

ideal specs
complete glock style lower with sig brace (preffered with lrbho )
7.5- 10.5 inch 9mm barrel with mlok hand guard and flashcan (a2 birdcage is ok)

CZ scorpion is on the roster. Search for BRNO instead of CZ. I just picked one up.

Why not get a carbine like a Beretta Cx Storm, and avoid the issur altogether? 9mm AR carbine or Beretta Cx storm are a blast, these are considered rifles and do not need to be on the roster. And no Roster/HQL/77r etc paperwork.

PSA will ship lowers to maryland as long as they are not complete. If you want to go the complete route, talk to a dealer and ask them to order it for you. PSA will sell completes to dealers. Not sure where you are located but I know Gunrunners in Frederick has purchased from PSA in the past.

Another option for a lower, you could look at Joebob Outfitters. I've ordered from them in the past. They carry multiple lowers that will take glock mags. As for uppers, ive ordered from MASdefence.com and jsesurplus.com with great success.

CZ Scorpion will be tough to get in your $700 budget. MSRP is almost $900.

Once you add a brace to a pistol with 8" barrel, which you probably will, there may not be a meaningful difference. CZ scorpion with folding brace comes in at 29.4 in, same as the Beretta Storm (29.7 to be precise). A bona fide MP5 is 28.5 with a brace, it has a 9" barrel. The CMMG mk9 PSB with brace is 25". Not sure about the Freedom FX-9, but ar9 type pistols with an 8.5" barrel and brace come in around 25-29". Is 4" worth all the extra bullshit? I have an MP5 clone, its a blast, no one complains its too long at the range.

CMMG has both 9mm and 45ACP of you want to check those out.

Alternatively, I got a Spikes 9mm lower from Engage that uses Glock makes that I will build on, just haven't started yet.

The Sig MPX is indeed awesome, but also almost double the OP's price range.


The CZ Scorpion is pretty cool as well, but plan on replacing the strong side safety with either a blank button or an AK style lever.
