I love my AR9. I built it from parts all over the internet. Fun and accurate! PSA is a good source for these parts.

Keltec Sub2000 is also neat. Realiable. I like the AR better.

Can't say anything about AR platform carbines that use Glock magazines but my Kel-Tec Sub2K 9mm using Glock mags has been flawless so far with everything I've fed it even Tula steel case!!!

I have a Mech Tech 10mm
Uses a Glock 20 lower, low recoil, accurate and fun to shoot!
I recorded it shooting 180gr at 1900fps

I assembled an AR carbine in 9MM using a lower from PSA that uses Glock mags. It has turned out to be one the most fun guns I have. So far it has been totally reliable aside from one case failure that was likely an ammo issue. Light weight, accurate and cheap to feed.



Since this photo was taken I've swapped out the grip for one a little less fat and added a red dot.

Thanks for the help, guys. Waveform- that is one sweet 9mm AR! Can you give me the rest of the details, i.e., upper, bolt group, etc. WB

JRC

Tape- sorry to hear about the problems with your JRC. Does it jam with regular factory Glock mags or just the extended one in the picture? Also, have you tried calling the President or CEO of the company? WB

I have used all magazines, I have called and they say we will get you a return ticket to your email address and nothing. I don't know what is going on. This rifle has spent it's life in the closet since 2012. I will email them every 3 days for the rest of my life or until they fix their mistakes. $700 down the drain.

Howdy!

I like the Kel Tec Sub 2000. I've had a first gen 40 Glock and it was a great gun, but I sold it. Just recently purchased a gen 2 Sub 2000 40 Glock.

I had a just right carbine set up for 45 ACP WITH glock mag and it worked fine.

I think the Mech Tech is a cool idea.

Nothing exotic - bought most of it at joeboboutfitters.com. The BCG is a New Frontier Armory AR9 standard, the upper is a side charging 9MM/45ACP by Spartan (no dust cover or forward assist). The 16" barrel, linear comp, handguard and buffer tube kit are all Kaw Valley Precision. The LPK is WMD. Since it was my first AR9 I relied on web sources that sold AR9 specific products. Seems to have worked out OK - it's working well. I bought a few 33 round Glock mags from PSA when they had a sale. I can't recall the details on the buttstock but I like it. I decided the Ergo grip was too fat and put a Hogue on it now. Prior to assembly I Cerakoted the parts in Titanium. That's it in a nutshell. Easiest assembly ever - put it all together in about 45 mins (I'm not the fastest AR guy in the world....)

9mm AR

Thanks, Waveform, for providing the details of your build. Could you possibly display a pic of the other side of the weapon showing the side charging mechanism? I would greatly appreciate it. WB
