9mm ar-15 1K down the tube
stats after 1000 rounds of mixed WW white box, reloads, wolf and god knows what ever else i could find in 9mm.
malfunctions 4-- two jams and two case ruptures the cases were winchester white box loads from wally-world.
these blow back things seem sensitive to buffers, recoil springs and ammo.
a hot load, experimental solid buffer and weak recoil spring are a BIG no-no!
two of the malfunctions were due to the mag not being fully seated, the other two were ammo and my experimental buffer problems --which i had to go back the the drawing board with.
accuracy is very good, reasonable power for a 9mm from that 16" stainless barrel. very quiet. recoil is there and not as light as you would think for 9mm. probably enough for a bump-fire set up. when TA drops by we'll see if the 9er will do for that.
it is an impressive little shooter. but it is another learning curve compared to gas operates irons.
everybody else gripes about the c-products 9mm mags , i can't say i am having any problems with them provided their fully seated before you start firing.
insert the mag from an open bolt and i"m having no mag related problems to speak of so far.
with so called "assault rifle" ammo getting expensive i'll be shooting the 9 mikey-mike a bit more.
only thing is it can't reach way out there, it ain't like i got nothing that will reach out there on the rack though.
now i got to pick up a case of the cheap-shit 9mm from somewhere--
