    9mm AR Build

    and so another AR build commences...
    have a few self builds behind me now, and I'm addicted to big kids lego....

    I'll update the thread as parts arrive and progress is made,

    The progress may be slow, due to limited parts available in NZ but it will be built!

    and the first post is dedicated to the receivers

    Lower + BCG
    Quarter Circle 10 Glock lower + bolt

    And thats it until a small Brownells order arrives,
    I won't tell what parts are coming or what I'm planing on using... that would ruin the fun

    How are you going to attach a gas deflector to that slick side upper?

    Fair call, I started out without one but ended up having to add one due to to much gas hitting the guy on the spotlight-and I like to be able to shoot from my left shoulder for shits and giggles from time to time.
    A brass catcher would probably also defuse the gas ok as well

    Sure looks a lot better without it

    How does one usually attach a gas deflector? Using the ejection port cover bosses?

    yeah i like the slick side look better aswell, if it does prove to be an issue i'll make a gas/brass deflector thats attached to the picatinny rail, something easily removed,

    It was a second hand item i picked up a while ago from the sportshooter forum,
    been using in a 300blk build, but thought it would better suit the 9mm,
    remade the 300blk with a anderson upper

    Dedicated lower, correct bolt, half the lpk (the 9mm specific bits anyway) in there. Seems about right to me? With generic receivers and all the conversion bits it would add up to nearly that, and these are meant to be pretty reliable

    Yep, but didn't pay asking price

    and once you add up the Price, its hardly worth importing, (retail US price $510usd for lower and bolt, + $250usd export permit fee + $30? shipping, +import duty and gst $220nzd)
    adds up to $1350nzd approx

    not to mention the hassle getting import permits.

    sometimes you have to pay a premium to get what you want, this is one of those times for me.
