Could be. Im going to stop by an LGS this afternoon and see what they got in stock. And the literature says the stock is commercial. SO You were correct. Thank you.

Good deal. All this JR talk has got me itching to go shooting!! I have not even shot mine since installing the new hand guard, I also have a new stock on my 10/22 I need to try out! That's it this weekend I'm going!

I did range shoot today. But this darn thing WONT let me load any pics for whatever reason,,, AGAIN.

The JRC done very well. @50 yards cut the whole center out of the bull. I had very few "flyers", actually less than I expected with the cheap CCI metal case 115 FMJ.

The rifle ran like a champ. I ran 150 rounds through it today. That puts the grand total through the JRC @ 250 rounds, and no issues whatsoever.

I had a dead primer on one round,, which after trying to re fire it twice in the rifle, I also tried the same round in my CZ 75 several times, and it failed to ignite. SO bad primer. Thats actually the FIRST CCI round Ive ever had do that after thousands of rounds fired. No fault of the weapons.
I played around a bit at first with some 8 inch paper plates with a 1 inch dot to tweak the scope adjustments.

Then fired 50 rounds @ 50 yards @ the same 100 yard sighting target, at a fairly rapid pace, with excellent results.

I settled in and fired 15 rounds @ 50 yards @ a 50 ft junior target with a 1 inch bull. Only two rounds were out of the black.

Thats pretty good accuracy from the rifle considering I didnt have a very good rest off the porch rail, and the cheap ammo. I may try some 124 grain off a good bench rest sometime. I suspect better ammo, and a better trigger man,, this rifle would do even better. I really didnt expect that kind of accuracy and was very happy.
Overall, I really like this rifle and think its a very good shooter.
I will try to load the pics again later.

EDIT to add,,. One thing I did notice was I was not geting the hand guard tight enough at first, and It kept coming loose. I know I can attribute a few flyers to that. When I seen a bad hit, That made me look, and sure enough the barrel was loose. After that happening several times, I ended up putting the butt on the floor between my feet and with both hands, tightening the guard as mush as I could. It stayed tight after that.

I totally agree on the accuracy. When I bought mine there was not too much info out there about them, but I was also happily surprised with the accuracy. It just seems to group pretty darn well and hold it- for a pistol round.

The other thing I noticed was the drop off at 100 yards was not bad at all, I was expecting it to be more. I'm assuming the added velocity from the longer barrel helps with that.

Nice! I think the last thing I need to try is accuracy with different ammo. So far it has eaten whatever I feed it with good results.

I did a range report over on that thread. My son ran 200 rounds through it today. He really enjoyed shooting it and had good results. I had dialed this in for 50 yards, and the hold over at 100 yards was dead on with one mill dot.

We shot 450 rounds through it so far without any malfunctions.

Im going to open this old thread, instead of starting a new one first. I just ordered, and received a JR Carbine, Gen 2 in 9mm. I got it from Buds for $589. Its a black takedown. I also ordered the backpack from JR Carbines. Its for the Takedown model. Because its cold here I haven't had a chance to shoot it yet, but Im excited to do so. It came with a 17 round ETS magaazine, which I knew nothing about, but a quick search shows its a very reliable magazine. Based on that, I also picked up two 31 round ETS mags from my local shop, and ordered two 33 round Glock mags, and the 50 round Korean drum from an online supplier.

worst rifle I ever owned, jam-O-matic, I wanted soooo much to like this rifle. I can't even get an email reply from the company, I have email them 6 times for warranty and no answer.

Do you know if you have a gen 1 or 2? The gen one models had some jamming issues but to my knowledge everyone who had the issue was able to send back to jr without an issue.

Did you add the fore end? Is it an original barrel?

Is that a ProMag? If it is, thats part of the problem. These rifles get excellent comments about reliability. ProMags do not.

No where can I find what the differences are as far as the Gen 2 or 3. I know they recently added a quick detach buffer tube. Mine does not have that, I knew when I bought it that it was a Gen 2. I wonder if thats the difference between the Gen 2 and Gen 3

No not pro, this is the mag that was with the rifle when I bought it. I have tried all mags possible with no good results, JRC says all Korean & Glock mags work fine with the 9mm

My JRC looks just like the one Weblance just bought.

It takes Gluck mags. I have bought (8) 17 round gluck mags. We shot the crap out of it this summer. I would have to count the empty boxes in a crate to be certain, but I kept very close track of it to OVER 1500 rounds. Its right at 2000 rounds fired now.

I have had 3 bad primers in 2 cases of CCI metal case 115 FMJ. I even had one metal case blow a little square chunk out of the case on the bullet crimp,,

It was cleaned @ 500 rounds,, ( bolt removed )
It was cleaned @ 1000 rounds, " "
Not been cleaned since.

About three weeks ago when we were sighting in our deer rifles, ( 30-06 and 270's )
We had targets marked with 8 inch bulls @ 200 yards. After we did our deer rifles, I broke out the JRC. I was hitting the 8 inch bulls @ 200 yards no problem. I even had my 10 year old nephew doing the same. We finished off the second case of CCI metal case 115 FMJ. I may have fire 2 boxes in my pistols, but the JRC has fired around 1850 or 1900 rounds of the metal case, and probably a couple boxes of CCI blazer brass also,, so ? .

The rifle has has NO failures whatsoever. And is deadly accurate. @ 100 yards I would have to say it is holding a sub -2 inch group.

I had also read where the MP and knock off mags were causing issues. The Gen 1. 45 calibers had jamming issues which were said to be caused by the feeding ramp slope. Which once machined out by JRC fixed that problem.

And once I realized you need to set the butt between your feet and do a good solid 2 handed tightening on the hand guard, we have had NO issues with bullet "flyers".
You gotta keep the barrel good and tight on the takedown models.
