Best platform that uses Glock mags?

Recommended Posts

JP or Nordic Components would be my two best choices.  I personally have a Nordic and so do a few of my friends.  They flat out run.

I love my Nordic as well. I also have a Stern Defense conversion that runs perfectly in my 5.56 SBR lower and with their upper.

If budget isn’t a concern, with Glock mags, JP is probably the best IMHO, but MBX and maybe a couple others are probably right there too.

 

If you’re looking to get your feet wet on PCC before going whole hog on some of the pricier complete-rifle stuff, you can build and upgrade as you go: I recommend the FM Products stuff, especially their lower, which is killer for the money (Wilson and a couple other “big names” actually license their design then charge a lot more money).

I have a JP GMR-15 and the Glock magazines work great.

I’ve had good luck with my Anderson. Don’t know how it compares price wise with anything right now, I got it for a song so my opinion there is biased.

I built mine off a set of Spike's receivers.  Couldn't be happier.

I have 2 Leadstars and one JP GMR15 and all 3 run perfect with glock magazines. If I had to choose one it would be the Leadstar, sorry JP.

Interesting. No votes for CMMG Guard.

I have a CMMG Guard. Mixed impressions. The radially delayed blowback bolt is great. The fit of the CMMG upper and lower is terrible, however, and the feel of the rifle suffers because of it. The rifle cycles flawlessly even though I have tuned the buffer system plenty. My CMMG barrel is also very picky with bullets and ammo, short throat and very few bullets are accurate through it.

 

If I'd do it all over again I'd do a build with QC10 upper and lower with CMMG radially delayed bolt. Also curious if the CMMG bolt works in the JP.

QC-10 has taken over the JPs in my area.

@midvalleyshooter if you want something that will run flawlessly you buy the JP and never look back. My rifles are loaned out at pretty much every match I shoot. 1, 2, 5 shooters, it doesn't matter they just run. I even left my GMR's with Federal at their demo bay at 2019 Nationals. The backup was there the whole time and the primary was there when I wasn't shooting it. No idea how much ammo they put through it but it didn't matter. I didn't bother cleaning it or doing any maintenance the entire week (PCC/Open + Limited/CO). 

After hundreds of thousands of rounds of probably every type of 9mm you can find through my JP's I'm sold. Like @rowdyb, I prefer shooting PCC not tinkering with PCC's.

My JP has been great. No problems and very accurate.

I love my JP. but if your on a budget I have 2 ATI Milsports that have over 8000 rounds through each of them with only a broken firing pin in one of them.

Like most other if cost is not a concern get a jp however for me cost is allways a factor and I went with a psa ar 9 that's i got new for $550 and after getting set up to my likeing that includes drop in trigger, techwell magwell, comp, c more railway, crimson trace cmr-206 and a taccom recoil set up I've have $1,200 in which is about half what a jp will cost

I have the MBX, QC10 and CMMG

MBX has been flawless, gun eats everything.  Would buy another one.

QC10 is a little picky on ammo and mags

CMMG is an overpriced paperweight in comparison.

The Aero one at Shot Show looked nice. It will be interesting to watch. I really liked the new trigger shoes and barrel options from JP.
