    Old FDE A3 upper from previous .300 BLK build
    Pistol lower used with 3 other uppers
    New KVP barrel and bolt from keepshooting.com
    New 9mm 7.5oz buffer
    New Strike Ind. port door (easy install, really)
    New 3 pack of Mean Arms Endomags
    Old FDE Magpul MBUIS from previous 5.56 builds.
    Other tan accessories acquired after realizing how much fun this gun was and wanted to keep going.

    This thing is FUN to shoot. The only problem I had was the trigger pin walked out and jammed FCG. Fixed it with Ebay anti-walk pins. I wanted to try 9mm again, but didn't want to get too deep into the money pit.

    This thing runs great, the Endomags work without a hitch, and even lock the bolt back after the last shot. I have about 500 rounds through it at the moment. I need to clean it.

    Since this is the only FDE/tan gun I have, my wife can easily identify it as 9mm. No forward assist needed as the bolt isn't cut for it. Someday I'm going to put a plug in it, just not too worried about it right now. The Caldwell bag is to collect my empties, as I reload, even 9mm.

    Glad to hear your experience with the EndoMags. I have 6 of them waiting for me to finish my first 9mm build. I have an Anderson lower and slick side upper, Kaw Valley bolt, KAK 9mm buffer, Shockwave Blade & tube, Right to Bear Arms enhanced trigger, and Magpul BUIS sights etc. Still need to get a barrel and a handguard. Planning on a Macon Armory 8.5" barrel. I'm also doing mine in FDE.

    You shouldn't have a problem since you're using the KVP bolt, as mine fits the Pmag and EndoMag with just slight rubbing. A few shots is all it took to break them in, and it never missed a beat. Mean Arms recommends a few dry runs with the bolt using the charging handle to check clearances and fit: https://youtu.be/Lq6Y1F18AEA

    Here's my first AR pistol I have ever built, just finished it today. Made from an 80% lower and the color is Cerakote Battleship Gray. 7.5" barrel, Magpul grip and AFG. It's got a green laser on it right now, don't know if I'm going to put iron sights on it or a red dot or what, the laser is pretty nice and bright. The color is a bit darker than the pic shows, the flash lightened it some.

    That's sharp! What rail did you use?

    The forearm is just a generic one I picked up at a gun show in Huntsville, AL I was at in January. I was down there with a group of Ruger collectors (The Ruger Owners and Collectors Society). I was displaying some of the Ruger double action revolvers I collect (I took 1st place in the Advanced class). There was a vendor who sold all kinds of AR parts (including all the pins, springs, crush washers, M-Lok and Keymod rails, uppers, lowers, barrels, basically everything and all at very good prices) so I got a bunch of things to add to my AR spare parts kit and to finish the pistol. They also gave me a good dealer discount. I my total cost for the build (not including my time) was under $300 (due to the fact I used parts bought at dealer cost). The laser I won as a door prize at a gun bash.
