A Dedicated 9mm AR-Style Lower for Your Perfect PCC Build
If you're aiming to build a pistol-caliber carbine, then starting with a dedicated lower is the best pathway to success. This KE Arms Stripped Lower Receiver is designed specifically for a 9mm PCC, and it's set up to accept all of today's OEM and aftermarket Glock-style magazines.
Each KE Arms KE-9 Lower Receiver is machined at the company's facility from 7075 billet aluminum. The company holds its receivers to tight tolerances within military specifications, so all mil-spec components will function in this lower, and the receiver is compatible with all mil-spec 9mm upper receivers. To enhance its durability, the receiver is treated with an all-black, Class 2 hard-anodized finish.
With the KE Arms KE-9 Lower Receiver, you'll get the magazine catch and an ejector with your stripped unit. This lower does not feature last-round bolt hold-open, unless you have a linkage system incorporated into your upper receiver. The company warns users that you can use the standard bolt catch to manually lock the bolt to the rear, but the Glock magazine followers will not actuate the catch. Some 9mm upper receivers will include this linkage.
