What do you folks think. The local shop has an almost new RRA 9mm AR Carbine with two mags. It looks like it's been shot all of once. It's going for $989. I'm thinking of trading in my p22 and WASR-2 with oodles of mags and ammo for it. I like the WASR-2, but the thought of a 9mm AR makes me salivate. I recently bought a Browning Buckmark and trail-lite barrel (for my AAC silencer) so that is my go-to-.22. I won't miss the p22. I already have a Maadi AK, so it's not like I'm going AK-less. What thinks ye all?

If you come out ahead value wise, go for it.

I paid $925+tax for my new RRA 9mm a couple of months ago. Great gun. Probably be worth it if the mags are good -- the modified Uzi mags don't lock the bolt back. Both the ProMag (believe it or not, although I did have to cut off some "flash" from the feed lips) and C-Products (orange follower) mags have worked great in mine, so spare mags shouldn't be much of an issue for you.

Then you have a lower you can build different uppers on too.

I got an American Spirit Arms 9 MM Upper on a Stag lower and I love it! :neener:

I can stick my Gemtech Trinity on the end of it and really quiets it down. With sub sonic 9 MM, it sounds like an airgun. Mine uses Uzi magazines and C-Product mags will work in it although some of the early ones are a bit tight. No they dont lock the bolt back, so what.:what: The long mags are 25 rounders and short ones are 20 rounders.

Not if the lower is one of the newer ones. If it is your forever stuck with a 9mm.

I think you should sell off your extra "oodles of mags and ammo" yourself. A dealer wont give you much for them. I also seriously doubt the dealer would do a straight trade for it all anyhow. Knowing how dealers operate i would guess that he would offer you $500/$600 or less for all of it it. Better yet sell all of your goodies yourself and just buy a new one from RRA

Yeah most definitely check if your 9mm is purpose built 9mm or standard with the 9mm block installed.

My RRA has the 9mm block, but its pinned in with a roll pin. I wouldn't expect the aluminum of the AR lower to take a steady diet of driving roll pins in and out. Stripped lowers have dropped back to sane price levels now, get one and built it up if you want multiple uppers.

I eventually ended up with one lower per upper though.
