9mm math

Tam is showing the guts of her new 9mm AR-15 (which, by the way, is sweet – she let me hold it when I was last in the shop). I did the math on my pending 9mm project:

Upper $400
9mm Hammer $15
RRA Mag Block $120
Rear Sight $75
5 magazines $55
Total $665

Plus a lower, which I have. And, eventually, some sort of optic. Since it’s just going to be a range gun, I’ll probably slap a Tacpoint on it. We’ll call it $900. All that just to shoot indoors.

Update: Tam another pic here. Why the flurry of interest? I’m a trendsetter. No, I kid. Probably because it’s winter and we want to shoot EBRs indoors. Plus, you promised us matches at CCA.

Update 2: And a stock. Thinking M4 stock or an Ace Skeleton.

    Hmmm. For $500 MSRP I could have a nice little Winchester 94 in .357 Magnum that I could shoot indoors…

    Us revolver/lever gun folk are a pain in the ass, aren’t we? 🙂

    Sounds like a good idea.

    I may get the boys at Predator to build me a 9mm AR – 15 sometime for general plinking.

    Chris, buy the parts and I’ll be happy to build it for you.

    Don’t you need a 9mm buffer?

  5. SayUncle Says:

    Not sure yet. Haven’t decided on a stock. Doh. Need to add a stock to the cost.

  6. Ravenwood Says:

    What about the bolt and op-rod? Most of the uppers I’ve seen they come seperate and cost about $100 extra.

  7. SayUncle Says:

    ADCOs come complete according to the guys at arfcom.

  8. Heartless Libertarian Says:

    According to the arfcom FAQ, if you’re using a collapsable stock (CAR, M4, ACE SOCOM), you’ll need a 9mm buffer.

    I just bought an ACE stock for my AR build….they’ve got seconds for $55. They’re not any cheaper on ebay.
