Hey guys and girls. Sorry for not updating this for a while, I have been busy with life ,( other hobbies, kids, you know the regular adult life. So back to the main subject. The Micro Roni. When I first saw this, I was like !holy crap this is the coolest thing ever!!!!!. Then I saw the price tag. $359 for a skeleton and nothing more, nothing less. Then one faithful night at work, while browsing slickguns.
Ok so if you haven’t heard about slick guns and your into this hobby you are missing out. I highly recommend it, if you have a smart phone they have an app for it. With this app you can see if anything firearm related are on sale. Hence this is how I found that CAA was having the Roni for sale at $259 with free shipping.
So back to the main point of what the subject is. I placed the order for the wrong pistol (Glock 19) which I was able to cancel, and order the right one for the Glock 17. When I received the package this thing came from Israel. Like the stamp had the Star of David. I was like holy shit, this thing came from across the globe. So I had a built Glock 17 that i was going to use for this when I realized that the slide groves were meant for the original slide. There goes another 450 into this project for a 3rd gen G17 that I got at a local pawn shop. The pistol was in overall good shape. 70 buck for a new barrel and 20 bucks for the Strike Industries anti walk pins and it runs like new.
As far as recoil, its not that bad. To me it in the middle between my 22LR and 5.56.
So bottom line.
It was well worth it every penny of it. You essentially get two different platforms utilizing one firearm. You can add any attachments you see fit. California sorry but with your legislation of Fire Arms you can’t have this.
As of right now you can buy 2 thats right 2 stabilizers and get one free.
Ok so the good.

- Has rails on top and side’s near barrel

And the bad
