I am in the process of buying a RDIAS. Will this work with a RRA 9mm setup? I will be using the m16 hammer of course and not sure if I will need a special carrier or would the m16 carrier with 9mm bolt work fine?

What brand of block is RRA selling?

I would prefer a top load block, that uses factory mag release, and unmodified uzi mags. I do not care about bolt hold open. Any suggestions.

Yes, all current production 9mm bolts by whoever are Colt SMG spec in design. Fit your sear and go with it. Have your bolt ramped by joeblack or Lee at LRM to smooth out the cycling

My understanding is RRA is not selling blocks/stopped production.... They are of Colt spec by design, install from bottom.

I would prefer a top load block, that uses factory mag release (ASA/HAHN) , and unmodified uzi mags (VM Hy-Tech) You will have to decide what you want, Uzi mags need the mag catch slot cut in the mag body to duplicate the Colt mag for AR/M16 retention to the lower via AR/M16 mag catch-release .

A RDAIS will work just fine. Have 9mm bolt ramped to save on lower pins. I usa a ASA block. It loads in from the top of the bottom receiver. Works well with UZI mags. No last round hold open on the ASA block. M-16 hammer will work. I usa a h-buffer. The subgun buffer slows my gun to much. In the 9mm set up the carrier is called a bolt. Most that are being made today are full auto.

Thanks for the great input. Is Brownells the best source of asa blocks? I might give them a call and see if I can get a dealer account.
