EAST ISLIP, NY - Dark Storm Industries, LLC. Introduces the DS-9 line of pistol caliber rifles. Built on the new DS-9 billet lower receiver, the rifles are chambered in 9mm Luger and utilize Glock magazines. The DS-9 is available as a stripped lower receiver or as complete rifles. Complete rifles are available in three configurations to match existing DS-15 models. The MOE model rifles feature Magpul MOE stock, pistol grip and forearm along with a mil-spec upper receiver and buffer tube. The 16” M4 profile barrel is nitride heat treaded for extended life. The Typhoon model rifles feature an ambidextrous safety as well as an ultralight 12” key-mod forearm to allow for installation of accessories without the need for heavy rails. The Lightning model rifles feature a 416 stainless steel barrel and Nickel Boron coated bolt carrier group in addition to a Troy Alpha 11” Battle Rail. All three rifles are available in three configurations, standard, post ban and featureless. Featureless models include the Thordsen FRS-15 fixed rifle stock and non-threaded barrels. MSRP for the DS-9 MOE is $995.00, the Typhoon is $1195.00 and the Lightning is $1295.00 The standard stainless steel trigger can also be upgraded to a 4lb billet drop-in style trigger on any of the models for only $100.00. www.dark-storm.com 800-963-7700

What is the price range on uppers?
We will only be selling components and complete rifles at this point. Barrels, BCGs and Lower Receivers may or may not be compatible with other 9mm AR lowers. Its more like the AR-10 than the AR-15 in that sense.

Ignore the hint of a gas tube, it was a pre-production mock up for pics.

Does the bolt hold open work on an empty magazine?
BHO on the lower is manual only. There was just not a practical way to make this work with the Glock Magazine without adding $100 and a lot of complexity.

That's a shame... I was hoping.

Since it works with Glock 9mm mags, will it work with .40sw or other caliber glock mags that are dimensionally similar as well?
Obviously a different barrel is required and possibly other items as well.

Just curious.

Yes, we hope to introduce .40 S&W versions next year. The BCG and barrel would be different.

It's got a pistol grip and it's a semi-auto, how is it Safe compliant or is there a version with an alternate stock?
