Well folks, so far everything seems to be going great! The family is all taken care of, we have this new forum to look forward to and on my doorstep I had a package overnighted to me from Kurts!

Here is a pic of my Bushy/RR 9mm with Kurts Kustom midlength free floated hanguard. This handguard has appox 3/4 length bottom and side rails plus a short approx 1/6 length top rail. Ventilation holes along the length of the rails with a solid section in the rear. I don't have the railcovers in yet or the foregrip, but I thought I'd go ahead and show you some pics of his work. Ohh..and the stock is a RR Short Entry type stock with 1" DPMS spacer. The stock front handguard ring is also retained as a sort of brush guard so I don't get a lot of crud into the HG.

Needless to say I'm very happy with the work from Kurts. A great railed handguard at a fraction of the cost of an ARMS.

Sweet! I plan to have Kurt build me a 10mm upper one of these days. Let us know how it works out for you in the long run.

A 10mm upper would be pretty sweet. Right now I'm keeping my ear to the ground for when Kurt comes out with a 9mm mag block that will allow you to use Sten magazines in a Colt pattern upper.

I'm sorely tempted to remove the FSB and replace it with a Bushmaster BMAS railed FSB and detatchable front sight.

As for a muzzle brake, yep, I think it would look great with one. Only thing is that it would be purely cosmetic as the 9mm has very little recoil out of an AR.

Very sweet. Now you have to go find a flashlight, a laser sight and a "flare-gun" to make this into a proper "crew served" weapon. :cool:

I just bought a 9mm AR myself two days ago. A XMAS present to myself, from myself. It is a Colt Lightweight Sporter. Made in 1978, new in box in 2002. I am probably going to leave this pretty much stock, although I have already added a collapsable stock. Mine has the pinned mag block so I won't be messing around with that although having some cheap readily avaiable mags would put the icing on the cake. I have a Sten MK.II along with 34 mags, but I guess that isn't an option for me on the AR. Mine also has the standard A1 carry handle which wouldn't have been my first choice, but it won't keep me awake at night. The one thing I am going to seriously look at is a suppressed upper with a shorter barrel. I saw an ad for one in the latest small arms review that I need to check out on their web page.

Congrats. very clean rifle.

What kind of groups can you get with it?

Thats one sweet rifle. I have always been leary to venture into the 9mm ar market as I can't figure out all the details to make it work. Ie colt or oly system, blocks , mags, buffers, hammers etc. I guess I should just look for a fully assembled system.

What kind of groups can you get with it?

One ragged hole at 15 yards and opening slightly at 25. Offhand rapid fire I can shoot baseball size groups as fast as I can pull the trigger due the the very small recoil. That's using cheapo Winchester White Box 115gr FMJ.

I have always been leary to venture into the 9mm ar market as I can't figure out all the details to make it work.

The Colt system uses either Colt magazines of modified Uzi magazines. Modifications consist of just notching a mag to fit the mag release. If you wanted to build one all you would have to get would be the following.

I usually deal with Donnie at Sable Co. Great prices and he lives near Rock River so he can go in person to check to see what they have availabe.

1. Upper $365.00
2. Hammer $10-$15
3. Mag Block $110-$125

That's all you need for a basic setup with a full length stock. You can use your standard rifle length buffer and spring. If you use a CAR type stock (Not fake Collapsible that uses a full length buffer) or Shorty Stock you might want to invest in a 9mm buffer. That runs from $25-$35. After that all you need are mags which average about $30-$35.00 each.

They are a lot of fun..plus you can shoot at just about any indoor range. My local indoor range restricts rifles, but rifles shooting pistol ammo are ok.
