    AR 9mm Set Up?

    I have 2 ARs...223 and 300 blkout (both on E). What is the best way to go for a 9mm upper set up and where to source?

    @Digit, Nzar15 has the 9mm PSA complete rifle for $1700, you'd be lucky to find an upper cheaper than that, or a 2nd hand 9mm cheaper than twice that amount.

    Yeah they sold out pretty quick, especially the glock lower ones. But Colt mags aren't difficult to get. Glock mags are certainly easier but still paying $95ish for a 32rnd OEM glock mag and korean aftermarkets about $10 cheaper. Can get $14USD promag Colt 32rnd from brownells but I haven't seen Glock equivalent near that price.
    I don't think the glock mag version has Last Round Bolt Hold Open either. Will find out when my mags finally arrive

    The QC10 glock variant has LRBHO, worked flawlessly so far (1000 or so rounds). I think QC recommend only glock oem mags, and they come up on special from time to time ( I bought a couple of 33s off Taieri for $80 each from memory)

    That's very nice, if for sale?

    On this one it looks like the barrel thread is back from the guard...does anyone know if a suppressor would go on AOK?

    10.5" inch barrel under 12" handguard, so is set back from the end. Would have to find a suppressor to fit inside the handguard, which I plan to do down the track, I can measure the inside diameter shortly

    Hmm. DPT has a wee ext on theirs but not that much. Bit of a bugger if a suppressor isn't easily fitted. Suppressed 9mm be great possum gun.

    I advise you not to get one.
    They are crazy fun to shoot and you will burn through a shed load of ammo.

    Had a couple of issues with my Stag 9T but all in all, its one of my go to guns.

    Inside diameter of handguard is about 35mm, muzzle device is 30mm diameter and it looks like the barrel end is 2.5" exactly from the end of the slanted top of the rail. The fitted muzzle device is actually to make extra flash and noise so is the opposite of a suppressor.
    9mm supers are still loud through a silencer and 147gr subs are quiet even without a suppressor so im not too bothered

    But im still yet to fire my glock version of the one you linked. My Cz czechmate mags fit it nicely and blank rounds strip and chamber nicely but need a higher catch hole cut in the Mags, ill just wait for glock mags to arrive. But im also now excited to see if I can modify glock mags to work in my czechmate because dimensionally they're near identical
