ArmaLite AR 24 Parabellum

Best of the best in 9MM.

Performance

Smooth, balanced. 1/4 groups at 20 yards. Tough military grade finish. Fits in the hand for a natural point of aim.

Features

Famous lyon logo from ArmaLite on the grips and on the top of the rail.

Appeal

The slide to the frame is percise as I have ever seen, it looks and feels great. In my opinion there is not a better feeling handgun on the market today.

I did my homework before adding this piece to my collection. I started out looking for a 9MM that would be aggresive on the target at 25 to 40 yards, not wanting to invest alot this close to the holidays, I started reviewing the 9s online, it seemed the best bang for the buck was the Bersa 9 Pro, when at the gun shop buying this one I saw the AR beside it. I did not give it much thought at the time, other than it looked nice. The Bersa shot good but after about 50 rounds my shoulder started to ache, I had a replacement 14 months ago. I atributed this to the grips being to big for my hands, I went home and started looking again, I pulled a web site that showed the AR and went to there web site from there. All the info the showed inspired me to go look at it again. When I handled it the first time I was hoping that it shot as good as it felt. I went ahead and got my very early Xmas present. When we took it to the range I was overwhelmed with the way this gun performed all the way around, 3/8" groups at 25 yards every time. The feel, accuracy, and no shoulder pain, what a gun. Anyone looking to get excited about a well rounded 9 should realy give this one a shot.

Yes, it is the Sarsilmaz Kilinc 2000 branded as the AR24. ISD knows better, but I believe this is itself a CZ75 copy.
