I googled them, even google hasn't heard of glock AR's. Pretty cool.
How about a photo of the other side?

I can't show you any. They were all lost in the fire.
The AR platform is the most versatile to date IMHO.
Now you got me thinking. It's not the best time to be looking at firearms, it's a seller's market.

The market is flooded, Jeff, particularly with service-grade parts. I'm getting a little bored with bolt-together guns. I'm also a fiscal tightwad, but I still managed to put together three of the darn things last year. They're just too cheap right now not to.

Ammo is another thing entirely... I swore no more mag-fed centerfires.

Making it hard on me.
I am going to go out on a limb here and say there is no such thing as a Glock AR. Also, billet receivers with milspec parts and EBAY furnature. Someone did a hell of a job of engraving and anodizing. Also, the Serial Numbers are not per manufacturing standard. These 2 specimens are not factory. Your build or someone else's?
Prove me wrong, but I think they started as a couple of 80% lowers, engraved, anodized, and built with budget parts.

I built them.
For years, like over 20 years actually, Glock fans have been asking when would Glock come out with a carbine. The infamous 'Glock Carbine" has been talked about on forums and even hinted at prior to a number of Shot Shows when Glock announced they would be unveiling a new product (which always turned out to be a pistol).
Personally, I have always thought a 9mm AR 'sub gun' was sexy. With the 80% receiver boom, I decided to build my own. While I was at it I decided to build a 5.56 version as well and have some fun.

Did I mention I have a Fiber Laser engraver?

So what you see here are, to my knowledge, the only 2 "Glock Carbines" that exist. I built them both the same, and other than the pistol grips which are cheap, everything else is quality parts. I took some pics at work (I'm an arson investigator LEO) and sent them to some friends. At least one of them posted pics online of the "New Glock Carbines" available only to LEO sales. I didn't mean for that to happen, but I must admit I enjoyed it.
As for the serial numbers, Glocks prototype pistols of every model had serial numbers with "J" prefix and a 4 digit number. I tried to make it as realistic as I could. The 9mm build now has a 5" barrel, and I am building a Form 1 suppressor for it. I am very excited.

Glad you liked them, and never meant to make you think they were 'factory". Just showing off some builds.

Obviously the 9mm takes Glock mags, anything from a G26 up to the 33rnders for the G18. The buttstocks are Rogers Super Stocks, they used to be standard on Colt 6920 carbines.

No, you never said factory. Sorry to hear you lost them. Just trying to stir you up with the budget comment but I was pretty close on everything else, no?
Who's lower did you use for the PCC?
I noticed the LRBHO is possibly on the lower, like a Spikes or Quarter, not like almost everyone else putting the wire in the upper. Have not come across an 80% lower like that, only 100% lowers.
Anyway, great job thanks for sharing!

@Investigator , rereading, photos lost in the fire, not the carbines... Couple more questions:
How do you get a stamp for a SBR that you built but put Glock's address on?
Have you done any research on putting a manufacturers address on a homebuilt?
Any considerations on transferring them to friends?
And asked above, who's lower on the 9mm?
Really got me curious on these very cool builds.
Thanks--
Al

Not sure what you mean about lost in a fire.
When getting a stamp for an SBR (short barreled rife), you are required to mark the firearm with certain specific information including the maker. The maker is whoever 'makes' it into an SBR, which is not always the factory who built the firearm. Assuming you are turning a Colt factory 16" carbine into a SBR, you would mark your name and address on the firearm.
I guess the short answer is that this "Glock" receiver is marked with all the necessary information including my information. ATF really doesn't care about any other engraving as long as what they require is on it.
My information as maker is on the bottom of the trigger guard, out of sight but not hidden.

As far as putting another manufacturers markings on it, lots of 'fantasy' builds are documented over on the AR15.com site. There are lots of receivers with H&R, Colt, and others including at least one Mattel.

Transfers- with this being an SBR, it will have to be transferred just like any other NFA weapon. The 16" carbine can be gifted, sold or any other thing I want.

Both lowers are New Frontier Armory lowers.

Glad to answer any other questions.

It was someone else that said lost in a fire, posted right after I asked for some more photos. My bad.

I can't show you any. They were all lost in the fire.

Sent to some friends
and sent them to some friends.
You must have been talking about photos, not the guns.

Anyway, thanks for the information. Keep up the good work, like to see the setup with the suppressor when you get it done.
