    I've been looking around for a 9mm ar pistol or even just an upper to build one with and they seem non existent at this point in time, everyones out of stock and i even went to cmmg's website and found that there not even listing theres anymore. Any clues? Know where to find one?

    Are you trying to build 1? If so RRA has a ton of pistol uppers. Then just buy a lower pistol registered.

    unless you can buy direct from rra then i dont know where to get them cause most places i've seen are out of stock. I am looking for 9mm though which is harder to find in the first place.

    Go to their website and order a catalog. Got mine in a week and you can order straight from that. They have a ton of options!

    GL!

    Build it yourself. Pick up a nice 9mm barrel 5-7", upper, rail and BCG, etc. Then when you pick up your suppressor can have that SD look!!

    An AR pistol = ANY AR upper you want,of any length,+ ANY lower *that was never a rifle* without a butt stock or any front handles.

    Let's say you have an AR at home that you put together.You just happened to buy a lot of the parts from different places.Or you bought them all at the same place. Doesn't really matter.

    Was the lower sold to you as a "rifle"? Or was it sold as "any other weapon"? Probably as "any other weapon.

    Diss assemble the rifle and put a SBR upper on it,or a 24" bull barrel,just a buffer tube and those cute little cushions and you have a AR pistol.

    Rifles have a minimum but a pistol has no maximum on the barrel length.

    AND you can interchange any AR upper you have on your "pistol" lower.Just don't go out in public with a barrel shorter than 16" on your lower that has a butt stock on it.Or one you bought complete as a rifle.

    So it can't have the threads in the end?
    And I've heard the buffer tube leaves a mark
    But one thing I was going to ask,that I believe I read on here some place,the ballistics from a 5.56/223 ain't much to talk about from a 11" barrel?
    The redeeming quality of the 5.56/223 is the the 50g bullet is traveling at 3k-4k fps.Otherwise it's just a 22

    Does anyone know a good place to get 9mm ar pistol parts? I can find ar pistol parts, 9mm ar rifles and parts but finding a 9mm ar pistol or just the parts to build one seems very hard to find, ive found 1 barrel and thats it. Anyone know someone on here that makes barrels by chance? Or has parts laying around?

    I got alot of my parts from 9mmar.com The owner personally called me to clear up an issue with shipping. Small but very honest company.
