I am thinking of getting one of these (Colt M6450, 9mm), and would like some input on this gun. I have 2 AR15's in 223, and was considering the 9 mm for cheap plinking etc. I do however have to sell some things before purchasing, but any input would be greatly appreciated, Thanks..

The little 9mm colts work great straight blow back no gas tube. Do the 10 inch upper as a short barreled rifle that the original design. kent lomont in Idaho has the complete kit minus the recvr $1000.00 brand new all colt parts.

sblackhawk,
You should check out the Pistol Calibers section of AR15.com. Great info there. I have a 9mm RRA upper with a VM Hytech block, just got it last week, had a great time yesterday at the range!!!

I have one. It bumps like a charm. I shoot blazer all the time. They are a must have item.

I have one from the blue-label era. it's a lot of fun to shoot. A great plinker.

I've got a factory Colt 9mm Carbine and have only put about 6 mags of .223 in my other AR's since I bought the 9mm. Everytime I go out shooting it's the first thing I grab and usually the last to be put away when I'm done shooting. Lots of fun and I encourage anyone who's interested to be sure and give them a try.

The thing that bothers me is mag prices.

I might have to get one though.

I've shot the colt and I have a RRA clone. no complaints. even mags are cheap ENOUGH when you ge tthem professionally converted to BHO. I just got 5 coolts thoughfor 75 a pop. wanted teh real deal. but the conversion is 10 bucksfor an ar9mm mag, or 28 for a plain uzi mag.

What can i say, its all the fun of an AR with no recoil, and cheaper ammo. no gas tube and no rotating bolt - straight blowback. NEVER had a problem, though mags need to be smacked in when they're full on the colt i've shot.

They are COOL!



.....some cooler than others.

There is no other gun (without a "happy switch") that is more fun to shoot than a PCC, and the 9mm AR's are some of the best.

I bought a 16-inch Colt a few years back, registered it and had the barrel cut off at 10-inches.

Like the others have already said, this is one of my favorite rifles. Mags aren’t cheap, but I only need a few to plink with, the gun is an absolute bast.

Here's my little 9mm colt it's a blast to shoot and will digest anything

I had a green label Colt 9mm, and it was incredibly fun to shoot. It never jammed once (even shooting ammo that probably should have jammed lol). I sold it for 1650 when AR prices were high...I would buy one again most likely, but the mag prices might drive me to the Vector Uzi...

I concur on the fun of a 9mm AR. I liked mine so well that I got a .45 auto upper too. I LIKE IT! Only problem is that finding mags is about 3x as hard as finding 9mm ones. I ordered some from a website called "OmegaMan.com" but he apparently went tits up (after charging my credit card). I had to go to the bank and file a fraud report to get my money back...Oly has 10 rounders (Ho Hum) but apparently haven't started producing higher capacity (crossed fingers) ones yet. Say, anybody know where I can get some .45 auto AR mags?

9mm AR's ARE cool, and I am not against them in any way.
But if you want a firearm for inexpensive plinking, why not
get a .22lr upper for one of your existing weapons?
