Introducing the LSA-9 Special Edition Pistol Caliber Carbine

The LeadStar Arms LSA-9 comes from a joint venture between two of South Carolina’s very own firearms manufacturers. The engineers at LeadStar Arms set out to produce one of the best Pistol Caliber Carbines from the ground up that incorporates many of the features that competitive shooters need. These features include a built-in feed ramp as well as a fully functional last round bolt hold open (LRBHO) that is integrated in the lower. The LSA-9 also includes a slightly flared magazine well along with a strategically placed oversized magazine release that greatly reduces reload times.

Every shooter knows that the soul of the rifle lies within the fire control system, bolt and barrel. With that in mind, the LSA-9 was equipped with the latest generation bolt that is fitted with a standard AR style extractor, the popular CMC Single Stage PCC fire control group and Ultralight barrel that has a modified chamber that can accommodate both factory and custom loads. The barrel is fitted with a properly tuned, 9mm compensator that was developed to make the most effective use of the gas column produced by the blowback action and helps you keep your sight on point between transitions.

Lower Receiver:  LeadStar Skeletonized LRBHO

Our Patent Pending lower receiver includes integrated feed ramp for reliable feeding including hollow points and integrated LRBHO (last round bolt hold open) for AR-15 bolt release functionality. LRBHO is easily removed with 3 screws for competition shooters. Huge magwell entry chamfer for way faster and easier magazine changes, no aftermarket funnel is needed because it is so large. The TracStar™ magwell with full traction design is designed for the operator to grip and maintain weapon control even in the most extreme conditions. It also features a tension device to maintain rigidity between upper and lower receivers as well as a rear detent spring capture device to facilitate easier removal of the buffer tube. Built in trigger guard eliminates the need for a flip down trigger guard. Fully CNC machined from 7075-T6 aluminum for extreme precision and enhanced durability and skeletonized for further weight reduction.

Upper Receiver:  LeadStar Arms Skeletonized Upper

Fully CNC machined from 7075-T6 aluminum for extreme precision and enhanced durability. Flat top picatinny design for versatility in mounting optics and other enhanced components. CNC engraved numbered rail system. Lead Star's truss system design reinforces key areas for increased strength without added weight. Upper is skeletonized for further weight reduction.

Barrel:  Lead Star Arms Ultralight Profile 9mm Stainless Steel Barrel

Designed strictly with the competition shooter in mind, these barrels are capable of showing what the highest standards in barrel accuracy and quality truly are.

Handguard:  LeadStar Ultralight LSA-15 Handguard System

15" Ultra lightweight slim profile designed for both competition and duty use. CNC machined 6061-T6 aluminum. The unique design offers ultra-capture around the barrel nut, eliminating the requirement for anti-rotation tabs. It eliminates harmonics from attached accessories, greatly improving weapon accuracy. Full length picatinny CNC engraved numbered rail at the 12 o'clock position. Three M-LOK slots at the 3 o’clock and 9 o'clock positions and full length M-LOK slot sections at the 6 o'clock position for mounting additional rail sections or accessories.

Fire Control Group:  CMC PCC Trigger

CMC’s AR-15/10 patented “Signature” Flat Drop-in Trigger Group is the ultimate for feel and break. With the Shooters finger coming to rest naturally on the shoe, every pull is the same as the one before it. The CMC Flat Trigger Bow renders a linear feel unsurpassed by any other trigger bow shape.
Our critical sear engagement surfaces have a propriety machining process that renders superior surface finish and dimensional control. As compared to our competition, the techniques we use establish a 1-2 RMS surface finish as opposed to EDMing which leaves a pitty 32 RMS at best. Compared to a mirror which is 0 RMS, this is what sets the CMC Trigger apart from it competition.

Stock:  Magpul CTR Carbine Stock

• Supplemental friction lock minimizes accuracy robbing wobble.
• Sloping cheek weld combines a slim profile with user comfort.
• Shielded release latch prevents snagging and accidental operation.
• Side mounting slots accept optional cheek risers for NON-AR15/M16 applications.
• Removable 0.30" Rubber Butt-Pad offers an anti-slip surface and increases impact protection.
• Compatible with Magpul ASAP and other receiver-mount sling attachments.
• Rear - Push-button QD swivel sling mount accommodates up to 1.5" swivels.

Charging Handle: Geissele Airborne Charging Handle

The Airborne Charging Handle (ACH) was developed at the request of an elite organization famous for its expertise in aerial insertion. The organization requested a lower profile lever design to reduce the chances of snagging. The ACH’s lower profile design is especially ideal for rifles where the primary sighting system is a red dot or similar low profile optic system. The ambidextrous ACH is 3D machined from a solid block of aircraft grade 7075-T6 aluminum. Shortened levers are dual contoured with gently concaved radius cuts in the vertical and horizontal planes. The handling surfaces of the levers are checkered for confident operation while wearing gloves. A taller fence at the rear of the ACH aids in redirecting gas blow back when shooting with short barreled and suppressed weapon systems.

Buffer/Recoil Spring: Taccom 3 Stage Buffer System

The TACCOM adjustable PCC buffer system is one of the first systems out there that not only allows you to change the buffer spring to your desired liking, it also allows for a 2nd stage, the final ½ of travel to also be adjusted so that the buffer doesn’t slam into the end of the buffer tube and in effect reduce felt recoil. Adding the TACCOM cushion is basically adding a 3rd stage that will keep the shock down from the entire bolt/buffer on the rebound, hitting the backend of your barrel. This cushion is between the bolt and buffer and helps smooth out the entire cycle of the rifle.

Gets lots of looks at the range
Let's face it - this gun is sexy. It gets looks all the time at the range, and folks come up and ask about it.

When it runs, it is pretty fun to shoot. The stock has no grip or texture to it, so it can slip in your shoulder if you don't have it locked in tight. I've been debating putting a thin strip of grip tape on it to keep it from moving in my shoulder.

For whatever reason, this gun does not like to feed the second round from a full mag. I tried running a fun stick with a +10 extension, and I had several (4 or 5?) failures to feed in the first ten rounds. That magazine runs great in my other Glock mag PCC.

I swapped mags with an unmodified fun stick, and had only one failure to feed on the second round. I quick yank on the charging handle gave the round enough force to load into the chamber.

Lead Star 9mm Carbine
Unbelievable reliability! Over 1000 rds & not one malfunction. Ammo that won't run in my pistols, this thing eats them up & rings steel at 100 so easy.
