    the Beretta Onyx SxS is awfully similar to my Mossberg Onyx!
    Is made in Turkey as well, wonder if is the same manufacturer.

    That is very nice. I'm a big fan of side by sides. They just swing right for me.

    I have a MEGA forged lower that I'm looking to finally build into a long range benchrest type AR. Not for competition, just Coyotes at up to 600 yards.

    I already have a 16" Carbine so looking to go to the other end of the spectrum with this one.

    Want to stay with 223 so I don't have to reload another caliber.

    Need recommendations for a single stage trigger....want a good one but I also don't want to drop $500 on it either. Jewell? JT?

    Thinking a 24 inch 1/8 twist to handle heavier bullets? Just guessing here

    Are all AR15 bolt carriers pretty much the same?

    Basically trying to get close to this pic found on AR15.com

    Hey Jimmy,
    Just a recommendation but I would go for a vented handgaurd. I know with my AR the barrel gets hot pretty quick. Hope that helps, Tony

    Yes it does. With my normal rate of fire, it wouldn't be an issue but ya never know when it might come in handy.

    One of these is on my purchase list when the current silliness calms down a bit.

    Cabelas has a 22" upper that looks a bit like that

    Took the new savage 308 out for it's maiden voyage...
    Sadly only had PMC 147 gr and a box of Federal soft point 180 gr, but figured they'd be fine for the break in/sight in stuff

    Got on the paper quickly- way R, worked it over. The burris 10x40 mil dot was super clear on a cloudy day, but the windage clicks were inconsistent :dunno

    The PMC seemed warible also, but that could be size as well.

    Looking forward to dialing in some loads

    Question for all you knowledgeable types....

    Thinking about building an AR lower I have, into a 9mm PCC. Before everyone says 'get a real rifle', I have real rifles. Point of this gun would be to cheaply shoot the AR platform for fun and the untimely death of pieces of metal scrap.

    Question is, why is there no other options (at least that I seem to find) for mag-well adapter, other than the standard that takes the Colt mags or modified Uzi mags? Colt mags are tough to find, and $$$ when you do.

    Why hasn't someone created one that takes, for example, Glock mags? Plentiful, 30 rounders available, etc. Is it the inherent rake of the pistol mag and the straight nature of the mag-well? seems like the mag-well adapter could sit at the angle it needed to, although it would and back toward the shooter, i suppose. I could put up with a funky angle, in exchange for plentiful and (usually) inexpensive mags.

    Just a thought, figured some guru on here would know the answer.

    This topic, a 9mm AR, reminds me of one of the greatest gun videos of all time.

    I love this gun, the M-169, and I love LRM for once paying a beautiful girl to shoot it while filming it. I'm not sure what happened to LRM, but they had a winner in this gun. I only ever saw one, and had a blast shooting it.

    I have an Olympic upper and a Hahn lower adapter that uses standard STEN mags. The adapter slips in from the top, so it can't fall out if you hit the mag release. The mag releases via a heel latch- like an AK. STEN mags are dirt cheap at most gun shows. I paid $75 for 10 still in cosmoline last year. Keep in mind that not all 9mm upper ejectors work the same, so the mag well will need to be set up for the appropriate upper. The Olympic uses a wire ejector that looks really flimsy but works great.

    To be honest, this setup is much more fun than an AR in 5.56. No recoil, minimal muzzle blast and cheaper to shoot. I shoot my 9mm whenever a match or class stay within 100 yds. If you "roll yer own" ammo, you can get 124 gr ammo up above 1600 fps at normal pressures using Blue Dot.

    Hey, is it wrong that I started laughing my ass off watching a Russian gal shoot an 'american' gun while the music talks about american thighs...honestly, all they needed was a Chevy with a big fucking flag in the bed.....

    or something - I got a mixed message there somehow.

    Nope, not wrong at all. And it is sung by an Australian band. That's one of the things that makes that video great. :lol3

    Thanks! I will scope that out. Better than unobtanium Colt mags...
