Command Arms Accessories is a firearms accessories company that specailizes in low cost, low quality plastic products. At least judging from every CAA product I’ve ever owned (yes, I know the plural of anecdote is anecdotes, not data.), but really I’m just not a fan of their stuff. Their hinges are cheap, the plastic is fragile, and in general their products just aren’t my favorite. It’s all seriously airsoft grade crap that’s no better than UTG/Leapers, or Tapco. Junky junk junk junk. But IT’S SO COOL LOOKING. OH MY.
My opinions aside, have you ever wondered what an NFA violation looked like? Well, the CAA RONI Glock shell thing is an over the counter product when combined with simply owning a Glock or other compatible firearm is what we in the industry would like to call, constructive possession. Yes. Of what you might ask? Why. It would be constructive possession of a short barreled rifle, otherwise known as an NFA violation. Without the appropriate paperwork ($200 Tax Stamp) and approval this could put you in jail just as fast as robbing a bank or kicking a toddler across state lines.
All for what? A plastic molded body around your Glock that adds a rail to your gun without doing a particularly good job of indexing it to the barrel? Oh boy! Sign me up for that! Really all you get is a stupid plastic shell for your plastic side arm that lets you play space marine (But if you wanted to do that, why not get a Beretta Storm? At least those were used in Battlestar Galactica). I really just don’t see the value in this product but hey if you do then by all means, pay the $200 to SBR your Glock and space marine it up.
At any rate, if I needed a compact 9mm sub gun, I’d just buy a Kel-tec Sub2000 and call it even.
