Most Reliable 9mm AR EVER | Tactical Rifleman
Reliability is everything in a gunfight. We need to trust the guys to our left and right to do the right thing. We need to trust that the helicopters will be there on time, plus or minus 30 seconds. We have to trust that our gear will perform. This is especially important in our weapons. If your sexy STI pistol jams in the middle of a stage, you lose the match. However, if your rifle jams inside a building filled with enemy combatants, it might cost you your life. Reliability is everything.
Fast forward to the current trend of running pistol-caliber carbines, and it is easy to see why they are so much fun to shoot. Hell, even John Wick switched to a PCC in Wick-3. All fun and Hollywood aside, Pistol caliber carbines can be a great choice for home defense if you have disabled or very weak family members. Again, they have to be reliable.
I have been playing with 9mm AR carbines for decades. They have ran UZI mags, M3 mags, and lately Glock mags. Fun, but they were never reliable enough for me to say that I would take one to combat.
Enter the CMMG Banshee. This puppy is small, fun to shoot, and VERY VERY reliable. We ran it hard with mixed crap ammo, without cleaning, just to see how long it would go. Remember, my past experience said it would only be a box of ammo till we had a jam. We kept feeding it ammo, and just a little CLP; and we made it to almost 9,000rds before she jammed. After a good cleaning in my Hornady Sonic Cleaning Tank, it is back to running like a champ. I’ll give you another update in 6 months.
If you own a Banshee; let us know if yours has been running great also. I love this thing. No, I’m NOT being paid to say that. However, I am looking for an ammo sponsor. Thanks for watching, TR
