I've had this pistol six months now and it has become my carry piece replacing my brace of Taurus pistols in that regard.This thing is built like a tank.Still under 500 rounds through it due to ammo shortage but it still has no malfunctions with any kind of ammo I feed it. This pistol digested a bunch of old steel cased wolf junk I found in my junk box.Know that the AR 24 is based on CZ 75 and "Small" frame Tanfoglio. The grip is slightly smaller and narrow than a standard EAA Witness or large frame Tanfoglio.For range work or competition I prefer my Tanfoglio pistols but the Armalite is perfect for carry or at least "car" carry and winter on the body carry(shoulder holster and jacket).The frame mounted safety is well thought out and with a high hold my thumb finds it first time every time.I have abnormally big hands and this frame does not crowd my hands too bad,for me it is a just right compromise in comfort,shoot ability and keeping it as small overall as possible.The forged in checkering on the C model feels great in the hand.The sights are very nice and hit a very good balance of being durable,adjustable and easy to point. The only negative I see is a slide to frame fit that is not as tight as I would like but the gun still groups way better than a defensive hand gun needs to.It's heavy but not excessively so.I feel much more has been made about this guns weight what it really is.I'll take a little more weight in trade to have forged steel instead of plastic and aluminum.

Very solid gun. All steel frame, slide, trigger, the works. I tested and a magnet sticks to everything. Of course its going to be heavier than a polymer or aluminum job, but this Armalite 9mm is the most solidly built one I know of. Feeds and ejects well. Adjustable sights. Can hit soda cans fairly consistently at 50 yds. My only gripe is the plastic case this gun shipped in. While the pistol itself arrived in mint condition, the plastic carry case looks like it rode around in the back of a pickup truck for a few months. I think someone swapped a case, or else the gun was handled very roughly in the warehouse. It was not my dealer, because I was there when UPS delivered it and when it was opened. But bottom line is it is a very fine 9mm. This is my 4th firearm purchased from Buds, and all things considered, they come through pretty well.

First transactions with Buds and no complaints. Great service. I received 4 guns which included this 9mm along with Baby Eagle II; CZ SP-01 Target; and Remington .45 Enhanced R1. Pros on this gun after 1 range session: 2 inch or less groups at 25 feet; No failures after 100 rounds; comfortable to shoot and would consider this as a carry weapon versus listed. Not the most accurate of the 9mm, for me, but very pleasant to shoot in single action. Better finish than Baby Eagle; easy to take down and clean. Cons: Double action needs work; Trigger overall needs adjustments if use limited to competition.

I'm seriously impressed! I own several top end and pricey firearms but have always wanted a "CZ type" firearm for collector reasons but I hadn't purchased one until now due to the merely average quality of those I saw and the widely variable reviews. Everything I read about the AR24C suggested a significant step up in quality so I decided to buy it. If I didn't like it, it wouldn't be a big cash outlay and I'd be able to sell it easily. I am so glad I waited and decided on this version. Simply outstanding. Worth far more than what I paid. The attention to detail is remarkable and even more so when you consider the price. People mention how big and heavy it is but compared to others I own (several SIGs and other like firearms), this is comfortable and pleasant to shoot and carry. Accurated and an excellent trigger as well. Cheap to shoot and simply fun. It's a keeper. If you're hesitating like I was, don't. It's worth every penny and more.

This is a high quality pistol, far exceeding my expectations. The machining inside and out is superb, as is the fit and finish. Slide to frame fit has no discernible play, and the barrel is tightly fitted. The overall quality is not quite to a P210 level, but is far superior to any CZ (I own both). Double action pull is smooth, but weight of pull stacks noticeably. Single action is also smooth, and stacks slightly as if it's camming the sear. Still, the trigger is very good for a combat pistol, and better out of the box than my P226 X5 AR. I'm not of big fan coated finishes, but this one is well executed, and doesn't chip like a first generation CZ-75. The LPA adjustable sight is rugged and a nice feature. If I had to nitpick it would be over two Armalite symbols that appear to be crudely burned in with a laser. The AR-24 is a joy to handle and shoot. The slightly raised checkering affords a secure grip, but isn't at all abrasive. The panels are rubber, the grip is surprisingly thin, and feels better than any handgun I've handled. It doesn't malfunction, It's accurate, easy to shoot well, recoil is virtually nonexistent, and the magazines drop free. It's also easy to shoot all day, with no sharp edges or irritating protrusions. This is just a fantastic pistol at a great price. I'm surprised they are not more popular, but I'm glad they are not so I can afford to buy another while Buds still has them in stock.

Love It!!!! Not for the "Girly Man" types who need allot of plastic in their firearms. This gun is high-quality, solid, forged and machined steel. Its like a 1911 and a CZ-75 had a kid. The extra heft and excellent grip profile empower this pistol with accuracy and quick follow-up shots. I've only gotten to put about 250 rounds through it, but have had zero malfunctions. Even the Russian, Brown Bear ammo ran flawlessly. This isn't made for concealed carry. It's a duty sidearm. With that being said, if you are looking for a well made, accurate shooter, you won't go wrong with the AR-24. Buds was great as usual.
