If mag prices are an issue, you can get AR9 ASC colt mags for <$20.  MPX mags are around $60.
It’s a consideration for sure, but priority is the gun itself. I also heard from friends who have AR9 that there appears to be noticeable differences in mags performance/reliability.

I had the same issues as your friends.  My ASC mags wouldn’t lock in my pcc due to the mag catch hole being cut too high up on the mag for it to lock.  Luckily I was able to return them.
No one is coming, it’s up to us.

Legislation should never be about depriving law abiding citizens of something, but rather taking those things away from criminals.

Yup. Have seen issues with the ASC mags as well with a least 2 different lowers (brand, builder, etc).

That said, seems like AR9 has a number of “finicky” issues. Trigger packages, ejectors, action spring are a few off the top of my head. Initially I was thinking possibly “builder” issues, but since I’ve seen them across different contexts, seems maybe “just how it is” and have to tweak things. That is one aspect that has me leaning toward Sig.  Hoping because it’s a single and consistent platform design. Hope because I’ve also seen Sigs have some issues in recent matches, but I was suspecting ammo issues there.

I got a 9mm conversion on my tavor.  The problem I had with ASC mags are with the followers rubbing too much with the mags.  I've had to file down the followers and lube the mags.

Had better luck with tavor-branded colt mags.

9 mm conversion?  I've shot the 9 mm version of the Tavor and I liked it.  Didn't really come to mind when I started considering PCC.  It's a little pricey and heavy, but I recall it was fun to shoot.
