CAA USA has introduced the second generation of their MCK (Micro Conversion Kit) handgun conversion kit/chassis. Although visually it may look similar to the first generation, the MCK Gen2 has a number of (eight, to be exact) design changes that should actually improve the overall performance of the package quite a bit.
Here is the list of changes and improvements incorporated into the MCK Gen2 design (as seen on CAA’s website) followed by a video where Mikey Hartman, the CEO of CAA USA, shows these new features and tells about their advantages.
8 Advantages over the first gen MCK:
1. The Gen 2 MCK features a new extended stabilizer which allows the user to fire the Gen 2 MCK in the folded and locked position. The new stabilizer is compatible with Gen 1 MCKs as well.
2. The Gen 2 rear door extends back an additional 15 degrees, making it easier to insert and extract the handgun.
3. The Gen 2 MCK accommodates suppressor height sights.
4. The Gen 2 MCK features a new charging handle which makes more surface contact with the rear of the handgun slide.
5. The Gen 2 MCK features an aluminum top picatinny rail for improved stability, durability, and accuracy.
6. The Gen 2 MCK accepts CAA USA’s new brass catcher, made especially for our latest generation MCK. (Sold separately)
7. The Gen 2 MCK features an improved spare magazine holder that operates with a mag catch and magazine release button.
8. The Gen 2 MCK is suppressor friendly and can accommodate a suppressor up to 1.38” diameter.
The CAA MCK Gen2 kit is currently available for the following Glock pistol models: G17, G19, G19X, G22, G23, G25, G31, G32, and G45. The color options are as follows: black, white, FDE, OD green, tungsten/gray, orange, red and pink. You can also choose the brace length (short or extended) or order it with an SBR stock. The MSRP of the MCK Gen2 kit is $299. The estimated start of shipping is January 15.
