Looking to build an AR57 on an OLL. I know the lower needs a BB. Does the upper need one too? I've heard only the lower needs the BB and both the upper AND lower need BB's.

Thanks

Why would you put a bullet button on the lower of an AR with an AR57 upper? You don't need to have the brass catcher locked to the lower.

BB is on the upper - that is where the mag is on an AR57.

The fixed magazine device needs to be on the magazine release. The magazine release on an AR57 is on the upper, not the lower.

Why would you want an AR57 in California?

With magazine limits and the price of the rounds it just doesn't make sense...

Or just remove the whole mag release portion on the lower. Leaves no question if it can retain a magazine.

Yeah the price is almost as bad as premium .45acp

Really? In bulk you can get 50 rnds for 20 bucks. Its SS197 but that is still fun to shoot. Sure 40 cents a round isn't great but its not THAT bad.

rounds arent that bad. it s the mags that are expensive. and besides you wont go through rounds like crazy because of the pain in the butt it is to just load 10 rounds at a time. out of state they make more sense, but it is a pretty cool system none the less. i made a pistol build and it is always popular with everybody who sees it.

fair nuff! hah always a good answer.

I just don't see the benefit over 5.56 in this case but its your toy!

In a real state 50 round mag dumps would be a blast!

Some indoor ranges dont allow 5.56, but do allow "pistol rounds" aka 5.7x28...

5.7x28 is a more efficient zombie killer than the 5.56, enough power for head shots without the muzzle blast and sharp bark.

We have a winner. That's why I got a 5.7 upper.
