I was looking at adding one these to a 9mm pistol. Has anyone done this and have experience? From what I gather the weight in the bolt needs to be removed and a heavier buffer would have to be added.

I don't have one but would be interested too.
You may be able to just remove the portion of the weighted plug that is in the way and put the rest back.
In a working 9mm I'm sure you just want to equal the overall weight of the moving parts.
One individual on another forum mentioned a Spikes buffer working on a combo 9mm and 5.56 10.3"
I assume it is the heaviest Spikes.

I would try a heavier buffer as well as a stronger buffer spring to offset the removed weight from the bcg, I'm sure you could get it to work

Less elegant but effective:

I removed the weight from the 9mm carrier and cut the length down to match the what the LAW extension needed to insert. Figured the weight of the LAW extension probably exceeded what I cut off anyway. File off the sharp edges, reassemble.

Took about 1 minute. Works great! I still use a 9mm buffer and the thing runs like lightning.

One of the beta testers of the gen3 law tactical folder is reporting no issues with a 9mm bcg. No modifications needed to the bolt

Are you running just a standard 9mm buffer?

I'm mainly curious how the new bolt spacer contacts the rear of the 9mm bolt.

Thanks!!
