Boomsticks: My indoor rifle...

SayUncle has been musing on the fun possibilities of a 9mm AR-15 of late.

I just thought he should know that the pile of DPMS and Rock River fire control bits that got stuffed into a Mega lower and push-pinned to a *cough* Double Star, but don't tell anybody fergawdssake, 9mm upper just the other night got taken out on the range today, whereupon they chewed through boxes of Speer Lawman 9mm like Rosie O'Donnell through a pint of Ben & Jerry's Rainforest Crunch, just as fast as I could pull the trigger.

Cheap-o, reliable, indoors 9mm AR blasting. Yum.

Think I should spring to get it SBR'ed?

Nice! Nothing wrong with double star. My four stripped lowers are homegrown (or will be soon).

But if you SBR it, you may as well get a glock ;-)

I kid. SBR the lower then use all the uppers on it you want.

That was me, btw. Does the RRA 9mm require a special hammer?

An SBR would look cool and would be quite practical when you're biking down the pike.

I've been thinking about building a 9mm. I have a couple of large airtights filled with 115 grain HPs and ball. I've been moving them the past couple of years. It would be more fun moving them downrange.

What magazine adapter did you use?

"What magazine adapter did you use?"

It appears to be a Hahn.

Also, further poking about would indicate that the upper is an RRA unit, not a Double Star. I feel cleansed. ;)

(That's the gun snob in me... :) )
