    Poor design. If it was donated to me, I'd sell it to someone who has poor taste.

    Youza.

    AND the FX-9 looks a million times better, is NR, better apparent quality, and clocks in at $400 cheaper.

    Youza.

    Junk. Buy a Scorpion evo carbine. Send it to Dlask. Rebarrel and have it verified. A real sub gun.

    if you like 5 round, hard to find mags, sure. Also you can buy scorpion evo's now in non-restricted (and they're quite affordable).



    Western Metal:
    If you've brought them in and sold them at their current price before you probably still can again, it's a nice looking firearm.

    I owned one of these and really gave it a chance.
    I tried to like it and I did for the most part.

    But it was plagued with reliability issues

    Broken firing pins galore
    (Sent the bolt to the USA to get the pin hole enlarged for their new beefier firing pin)
    Finally stopped breaking them! I broke 3 and rifle was down for months each time.

    There was ejection issues when using cheep Ammo aswell

    Most accurate 45 acp carbine I ever shot though..

    Id have serious difficulty spending this much when the Ruger carbine is almost half the price and the FX9 is $400 cheaper...
    I agree with what Suther is saying....1500.00 IMHO is WAY to much!

    I'll be honest and say that I've never owned a PCC, but am hoping to change that in 2019. Until yesterday, the only one I was really interested (and felt I might be able to afford) is the FX-9, @ about $1,100. Yesterday, I handled one of the new Rugers ($849) and was pleasantly surprised at how much I liked it. Solid-feeling, and nice iron sights. I've always thought that the Thureon and JRs were not exactly.."handsome" looking guns..to put it mildly. Of the two, I've shot a JR and it ran just fine...but no desire to own one. The FX-9 got the looks right, but for me...a Ruger might be able to happen sooner. The TD~I wouldn't pay $849 for one myself, let alone $1,500. I don't pretend to have the same sensibilities as anyone else though. lol

    That's unfortunate and if it were mine it would be enough to put me off from buy another one of their products. I however have about 1200 rounds through my TD 40 S&W with no issues, maybe I got lucky? Either way based on my experience I would buy another without even hesitating.

    The same could be said for any firearm.

    I agree about the accuracy. I can consistently get a little + or - 2" at 100 yards with good ammo like Hornady Critical Defense

    It's too bad that people don't know about these as much as Just right carbines. I personally think these outclass most if not all 9mm carbines. I had one of these and put at least 1000 rounds through it without a hitch. At one point I had it so dirty I thought it would jam for sure but no, it just kept on plinking. It was seriously an amazing little rifle. The team at Thureon Defense are great as well, spoke with them a couple times via email about spare parts if needed and rails for the hand gaurd.
    That being said I paid $1000 on the EE and sold it for around the same after some upgrades. I don't know if it's worth the $1700 after taxes. Drop the price by a few hundred and it should sell.

    There's a lot of 9mm carbines out there that's a lot more affordable. Thureon Defence also looks much uglier.
