Default 9mm AR

What is the easiest way of building a 9mm AR using Glock magazines?What specific 9mm parts do I need to complete the build?

Start off with a DDLES glock lower if you want to use glock magazines. Otherwise, if you want to use colt style magazines, a standard lower with a mag block will work.

Unless there's a bullet button mod for the DDLES GLOCK 9 mm AR lower, it may not be legal.

What kind of upper do you use with the DDLES lower? Will a CMMG upper work with this lower?
And does it require a specific BCG?

why a 9mm rifle? 9mm is a pistol round. very limited ballistics. if you want a rifle use a rifle caliber. just MO

The question should never be "why?" but the answer is always "why not".

Other answers might include: For fun, economical to shoot, curiosity, common round, easy to reload, light recoil, more fun, just because.

DDLES, Lone Wolf Distributors, Olympic Arms and MGI all make AR pattern lower receivers that use Glock magazines.

Most 9x19mm AR uppers will work without any modifications with the above mentioned AR Glock lowers.

However, the 9mm BCG needs to be modified to work with Glock magazines.

Average price of a stripped AR Glock lower is $275.
Average price of a modified 9mm BCG for the AR Glock lower is $250.

I would go with DDLES for the lower. My DDLES is for Colt mags, but it is a nice piece. They can be slow in shipping and they are pricey, but no more pricey than a lower with a mag block.

Others have already shared info on modifications that need to be done to the bolt to work with the glock mags.

Because a lot of us don't have just one AR15. If we already have a couple in a rifle caliber, why not build one in a pistol caliber?

If you shoot a steel match, rifle calibers are not allowed.

So that leaves pistol calibers, or .22 rifles...which suck at knocking down steel.

I built my 9mm DDLES Glock because I wanted to have a reliable gun for steel, and it's ALOT cheaper to shoot/train with for CQB drills.
I have plenty of glock mags for my 34 and 17, I reload 9mm, and have a few good recipes for the carbine.

I went with a JSE SS 16"barrel, CMMG bolt (I milled it for glock mags) DDLES lower, MI 12" handguard, ACE stock and a Burris fastfire red dot.

I love 9mm carbines including ARs, but 9mm blowback has pretty much the same recoil as DI 5.56. Great for training or just because, but not as sometime "light".

Could add the ability to shoot on pistol ranges or at indoor ranges as well.

There's such a thing as a 9x18 AR upper?
