    That's a bit spendy for a stripped lower... is it the "complete" lower or is it a "stripped" lower? Wouldn't be too bad for a "complete" but certainly not competitively priced. I guess in this economy that's just how it has to be! I for one would load that puppy up with .40 S&W and have a blast (pun intended)

    the CMMG 9mm lower is less expensive than a 5.56 lower and a mag block,

    a decent 9mm block can run upwards of $175 --just for the mag block--


    it is not fully stripped as it has the block catch ramp and other 9mm do-dads--

    it is the most expensive lower i have ever bought --i think that DPMS i got back during the first rush was $120 too--


    any stripped lower that ain't a blem or second is probably going to run around $100--every once in a while you'll see a DSA or AA for $60 --but those are usually a short run sale price--

    i was thinking i might open up the plastic mag block and see if it will take a .45aco mag-since i woun't be needing it for 9mm duty any more---lol

    JSE looks to have sold ALL the remaining 9mm lowers out!!! ---

    well i just got around to picking my 9mm lower up today from my FFL.

    as far as being a blem it is tough to find where the blemish is. to me it looks like it had a few very small marks --like it has been tossed around in the shop. but nothing that penetrates the finish which is a very flat black.

    the lower comes with a 9mm feed ramp, ejector and BHO installed so it has all the 9mm specific parts i'll need .

    i fitted it to and upper and it fit perfectly well.

    the only cavat is if you use one of these on a DI gas pistol cal build you'll have to remove the feed ramp. i don't think this would be too big of a deal cause it is just held in with a roll pin. and you would also have to remove the ejector which is held the same way.

    so far it looks like a hell of a deal.

    might be a while before i finish it--i better get to ordering stuff--LOL!

    did you get your CMMG 9mikey-mike yet?

    mine assembled very well-can't even find the blem areas --hell anybody else would have sold these for "first quality"--

    CMMG seems to do a good job on their lowers-- all the pins and so on fit perfectly in spite of some issues with the DPMS lower parts --but that is on DPMS--LOL

    if it runs like it looks she is going to be sweet!

    Hey J427x,
    I got my blem lower last week and your right they are very nice. I am wanting to build this into a .357 sig rifle which I think would be pretty damn sweet. Feeding is never a problem for the .357 sig since it is a bottle neck case, and the power of the cartridge is very impressive. The twist rate for a the barrel would be the same as for a .45 ACP because of the overall cartridge length, I guess that would make it about a 1 in 10' twist.

    The only problem is that I have never seen a source for a .357 sig AR barrel. I know that a .40 S&W bolt would work just fine, but I need a barrel to make this happen, I'm thinking a 14" barrel would be a smoking hot little number. Of course i'd have to SBR it on a form 1, but hell it might take me the 2-6 months for NFA division of BATFE to process my application just to source the parts. Do you have any leads on barrels? Also I am in dire need of a complete forward assist if you could point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated.

    my guess is you would have to ream out a 9mm barrel to 357 sig.
    you could make a straight blow back 357sig --would be a bit more involved than a 9mm blow back.

    mad-machinist does all kind of work with pistol cal ar-15 conversions a DI gas 357sig would be very easy recoiling and smooth compared to a blow back --and would require far less buffer weight than a blow back.

    if you use the 9mm lower with the DI the feed ramp will need to be removed--cause it uses the barrrle extension as a feed ramp.

    you will also need UZI mags -- i been playing around with the 357/40 idea myself --neither will feed from my c-prod 9mm mags.

    you might take a look around this place--they do a lot of these pistol cal conversions--
    Beyond556.com - Beyond556.com

    right now i am going to run standard 9mm blow back for a while--till the ammo and mag situation settles down--

    9mm will have the same power coming out of a long gun as the .357 in a pistol. At least that is what it looked like when we tested penetration of various things out at the ranch. But, we used hotter 124gr, 9mm ammo.
