Rocking AAC 300 MPW and want a 9mm upper for range

Post by MPWfritz » Mon Aug 10, 2020 8:45 pm

So I am looking for the the best way to convert my AAC MPW to a 9mm Upper. https://karrisguns.com/kg-ar15-9mm-conversion was on list but they are out of stock. Id rather go Endo mag route and they seem to prefer the Gen 4 BCG. Karriguns is bundeling their uppers with endo mag so I was hoping on a sure bet there but they are OUT. So what would you do? Wait? Go with the STERN $189 adaptor and spend 300 on an upper? :) :roll:

Heres a $800 option. https://cmmginc.com/product/upper-group ... -30rd-mag/ The Kerris was around half that cost with one mag

i went with a bear creek 7.5" upper and the endomags.

having a ripping good time with them. running a H3 buffer and she works dandy (bcg has a 2.x oz slug pinned in the rear)

well yea man... they're a budget seller and anything ar-15 is selling just about as fast as they come in stock at that price point. it is what it is... there's no changing it until likely mid november - and thats only assuming POTUS gets reelected. If biden wins, and god forbid the GOP loses its senate majority.... better hold onto your pistol grips.



we've had 3 record months in a row for background checks (may, june & july) and gun sales due to covid and the election looming. there's a stone cold panic buy happening thats outpacing the post sandy-hook fanagle, and the only reason there's still *anything* available is that manufacturing was ramped up post sandy hook.


so unless you're willing to spend premium $... you're gonna have to do the daily hunt and be ready to click "buy now" when you find what you want.



my cousin was waiting for an 18" side charging 350 legend upper for almost 3 weeks... he bought his and they were out of stock hours later.




here's BCA's current full ar-9 offering.

this is the upper i purchased
https://www.bearcreekarsenal.com/bca-ar ... t-w-7-mlok

i had been eyeballing it for a minute, so i had it on the "notify me when in stock" list and it poped up and i clicked send it. price was $279 back in late may.


put your self on the in-stock notification for anything that catches your eye and be ready to go if you want it. dont wait till tomorrow.

such is the gun world right now.

I appreciate the post and your experience but since I have limited knowledge I dont understand how this AR9 Product you are talking about can work on my AR15 platform. It seems to me that its a road not worth taking. I am looking for a proven ar15 platform conversion.

the endomags are the same thing that CMMG is using for their systems.. this IS proven.

its also the same conversion system that the link you posted is using

https://karrisguns.com/kg-stinger-9mm-8 ... sion-.html

i just happen to be using a BCA upper (with their BCG) and purchased my endomags separately as inserts and converted my existing pmags over.
