    I'm looking at gtting one in the next 2-3 months.

    I'm going to build it myself with some help from my local FFL.

    I tried finding a 9mm AR EDU or FAQ on ARF but didn't see anything really.

    I've searched recently too. I'm thinking of selling my .223 carbine for a 9mm one so I can SBR. I dont know if I can just buy a 9mm pistol and put a stock on that after the tax stamp or If I have to start with a dedicated rifle lower.

    I think for the lower the only difference is the hammer, buffer and mag block. Upper, not too sure except for BCG obviously.

    I had an Oly 9mm upper that worked pretty well using sten mag's. Not sure how economical it is to build a 9mm upper though.

    What's the difference in muzzle velocity between a 9mm fired from a 4" pistol vs. a 16" rifle barrel? :o

    take a pistol and fill out form 1/4(can't remember) for construction of an SBR, then when it gets approved, throw a stock on your pistol and you're good to go.

    So a 9mm AR isnt an AR? Its a pistol with bits made up to look like an AR?
