    How do these compare to the jr carbine?
    I had a jr....sold it after a while....decent gun,accurate for pistol ranges..but the sloppy magazine fit in the magwell, the fact that it said in the instructions that you couldn’t slap a mag in too hard and couldn’t change mags with a closed bolt.....finally got too annoying...and made me sell it.

    Would love another 9mm carbine, but to be honest ...that price just seems way too high for what you get...

    Once you get around the 1500 range, I start thinking about buying a better rifle, not a pistol carbine that you have to aim a foot high at 100

    Currently looking for a 22 WMR plinker instead of 9mm, gun is waaay lighter, waaay cheaper, wickedly accurate and price per round is about the same as 9mm....leaning towards a kel tec

    Would jump on a TNW if they made a 22WMR conversion kit....

    My 2 cents

    Yep, I recall going to pick one up about 8 years ago at a shop in Cambridge when I heard that Thureon was having a hard time keeping up with demand. I knew a dry spell was on the horizon which would inevitably be followed by a price spike. As I was heading into the shop one guy was coming out talking about Thureon to his buddy and snagging the last one in town. Sure enough, the sales guy told me when I got to the counter that the guy who left had bought the last one......$799.99+tax. That year was pretty much the last time I heard much talk about the Thureon until now. Too rich for my wallet.
    2019.....The year Canadians showed their degree of stupidity. I am Canadian, and ashamed of the government that others have shoved down my throat.

    Do your research
    Match accuracy? Lmfao its a 9mm carbine, wtf does match accuracy even mean for a 9mm!? You printing 1moa groups at 100yds??

    Id have serious difficulty spending this much when the Ruger carbine is almost half the price and the FX9 is $400 cheaper...

    I didn't want to jump in but I'll bite.

    Wtf is match accuracy in a 9mm carbine? I have yet to see a 9mm in any precision rifle competition so im curious what you are using as your reference.

    This seems to have a good rep and be well built. But it's approaching b&t money...

    At a time it used to be alone in the market. But the fx9 is 1g flat... the ruger pc carbine is 800.... so this needs to be 1g to compete. Maybe a touch more... like 1100 tops.

    Trigger yes, buttstock yes, handguard no.
