My LGS dont have a JR, and their distributor is on back order,, but they are working on tracking me down a new JRC takedown model in black with the smooth handguard. My guy at the LGS actually has a JRC 9mm, and had nothing but praise,, so thats a big plus. he knows his stuff, and I trust his word.

In the meantime, I spent some time today trying to get a hold of Special Interest Arms in Gardnerville NV. No luck whatsoever. The posted phone number on their website sounds like it now belongs to some religious group. I have not heard anything back on the email i sent. Oddly enough, there is another SIA company listed in Longview, WA. NONE of the distributors SIA listed, have any of their rifles, or even have a stock#. So that whole thing on the Armscor TCM22 conversion to a Novem 9 carbine may be a wild goose chase.

I got the new handguard from Nordic components installed-wow what a difference! The 1-5/8" od makes it super easy to wrap your hand around. No angled grips, no vertical grips, just grab and go! It's super streamline and lightweight. I can't wait to get it to the range. The only issue I had with instal was the new barrel nut was hitting the upper receiver before the barrel was tight. I had to sand off about .015"-after that it was perfect. About .005" gap between nut and upper after nut was tightened. No torque specs so I just went with my gut, similar to what you would use on an ar-15 barrel nut. I'll include a picture of where I sanded the barrel nut.

Does your barrel just slide in with alignment on the keyway? How tight does that nut really need to be?

Not only does it look nicer but it handles so much better. I did it more for the functionality but it sure does look bitchin! I also bought the similar handguard for my AR15 that i will be installing ASAP.

To answer your question yes the barrel is keyed, and the only difference between the takedown and the standard is the handguard. They don't have torque specs for the barrel but hand tight seems a little on the low side, I used a spanner wrench with my JR in a vice to tighten my barrel-I don't want it coming loose.

I like the idea that on the takedown model you can have the barrel off in a few seconds to clean it,, but was wondering about keeping it tight. I thought the quad rail model did take a spanner wrench. HMMM, more to think about since the takedown is a new model.

The model with the quad rail needs a normal ar15 wrench to remove the barrel nut. The barrel nut included with the Nordic handguard had just one slot to tighten it. It's then covered by the handguard and there is a lock ring to keep it in place-same As the JR with the quad rail. I believe the handguard on the takedown model has the barrel nut built into the handguard. I've heard of ppl using a rubber strap plumbing wrench to tighten and that works pretty good

I was at the LGS today. They have had JR carbines on back order for almost a year.

They had an overpriced Sig for $1600.

The only other one that even looked remotely tempting was a Stag Arms. Other than the proprietary mags, everything else was AR compatible. It was $1050. But I know nothing of the reviews on that model.

I did finally receive an answer to my email to SIA on the Novem 9 bolt action carbine. They sent me an order form. Its $750 shipped. If they can have one built & sent in a few weeks, I may go that route.

I see a bunch of JR carbines on gun broker. All your would have to do is work out the details with your local ffl and the seller. I bought mine that way, from a dealer in so cal and had it sent to my local gun shop.

Yup. I am looking at a JR takedown desert camo on Buds . $760. shipped. I already have a buds account and they already have my LGS info.

I also recently watched some videos on the new takedown models, they handguard/barrel nut has holes towards the receiver end, so a wrench can be used to tighten the barrel.

No. The LGS is trying to get me one,, But I kinda decided rather than buy one online, I would either wait on the LGS, or wait on the CZ 16 inch S1 carbine to be released.
Whichever one they get first, will probably be what I end up with.
