In 2018, CMMG unleashed the Banshee pistol caliber carbine for everyone to enjoy. At the time, pistol caliber carbines and SBRs were going through somewhat of a resurgence and if you fast-forwarded to today, you’d struggle to not run into one at nearly every gun store you went into. The original Banshee was first released in .22 LR, 9mm, .45 ACP, and .300 BLK. CMMG is now offering the Banshee 300 in a 5.56×45 chambering in a 10.5-inch AR-pistol configuration.
