CMMG now sells "radial delayed blowback" 9mm and .45 ACP uppers which need less reciprocating mass like roller delayed (HK) and lever delayed (FAMAS) guns.

The thing is, we used the same lowers from our M4 service rifles -- we just swapped out the uppers. Didn't even need a magwell block either because of these special magazines that had the same footprint as your standard USGI mags:


So...is there anyone who makes such a simple 9mm conversion kit? None of this messing around with mag blocks and buffer springs and the what-not -- just swap out the upper and use special mags?

I'm guessing not, otherwise why would folks get dedicated 9mm lowers?
Just a WAG here, but if someone has unlimited funding(US Military)for training, I think you can have anything you want to train people with......

I've got a complete Colt 9mm A1 upper with Colt 9mm bolt, 9mm Colt buffer, and new chrome lined Rock River Arms barrel for $500. Would just need to add a Colt magazine adapter.

Where were you a couple of years ago. Doesn't that just figure.

My ex-GF is selling her CMMG dedicated 9mm lower w/ RRA upper (with carry handle). Here she is shooting it. PM me if anyone's interested...I think she hopes to get $850
