    9mm AR-15 conversion question...

    I would like to convert an AR-15 lower I have into a 9mm platform. Can I get a little advice as to what I am going to need to do a conversion of this sort?

    I have a stripped lower, an LPK, and a stock. I know I will need a 9mm upper.

    Do i need a special LPK? Also, I suspect any upper will come with a bolt assembly that will be suitable for 9mm. Will I need a special spring in the buffer? Thanks in advance for your answers.

    Additionally, is there one tidy little kit I could get from a single retailer? Please advise.

    IIRC the 9mm hammer different,you also need a magwell block that allows the 9mm magazines to be used,also the bolt carrier buffer and spring may be lighter to allow the operation of the lighter 9mm cartridge.AR15.com should be able to help you out with any questions

    Brownells has all the parts you need listed in their catalog. Cant say if they actually have any of them in stock though.

    Thanks for the assistance. Based on what I see the raw economics of a 9mm AR lead me to just build another AR in 5.56 and leave the 9mm in my handguns.
