View Full Version : 9mm AR

So I am thinkin about building a 9mm AR. I am curious what you all think is the cats meow for this setup? Doesnt seem DPMS (My personal fav company) makes 9mm stuff. I know RRA makes nice stuff, but it seems pricy to me. Is the Olympic stuff any good quality? Thoughts?

Of course I like my setup.

• RRA 16" midlength A4 9mm upper
• VM Hy-Tech mag adapter. Allows me to use my unmodified UZI mags from my UZI.
• CA Reg AW Eagle Arms lower with MIAD/CTR, RRA 9mm hammer & recoil buffer.
• Sold my M2 Aimpoint without thinking (was from one of my .223 upper, didn't think about keeping it for 9mm upper), now I want another Aimpoint or EoTech.
• Norrell's Moly Resin in Flat Tan (FDE)

Just know that the RRA 9mm rifles are pretty much 100% clones of the original colt sub-guns. The only noticable difference is colt uses A1 style upper receivers while RRA uses A2s or A3s. I have a RRA A2 and love it. It allows me to shoot an AR at a price that beats shooting an AK.

Your going to want to go with Garrison Manufacturing for your upper. Awesome guy to deal with, has great prices, and makes one of the best upper assemblies around.

I'm building an OLY arms/DPMS tubber rifle, I decided to get the oly because I have more sten mags than uzi mags.

Its alot easier to find parts for the RRA tho, oly parts can be a bit harder to find.
