Do you need to change hammers, triggers, buffers, buffer springs or anything else on the lower when swapping to an Oly 45ACP upper?

I see they use modified Uzi mags for about $60/per.

Swap the upper and run. Yes, mags are a bitch, but with a lot of Uzi fellas doing the M3 magwell on spare lowers for 45, mags are starting to come out of hidig, but they still want $50-65 per mag, and still need block attached to rear to work w/Oly 45 system.

Actually, early Oly's used the magazine block and had a screw attached and trimmed at right spot so the block would catch the magazine and hold it in. Works well on the 10mm that I have from years ago. SOCOM is now making the block that Oly used years ago. The 9mm block is almost exactly the same as the Oly one I have. In fact the magazine block would work on .40/10/.45.

I've got a .45 OLY upper setup that works pretty well. I just don't have enough lowers. Been sitting in the safe for a while. IT uses modded UZI mags. Comes with 3 10 rnd and one 16 rnd modded STEN mag. You looking to pick one up? You helped me out in the past.... i could give you a good deal...

Just tossing the idea around. Just traded for a 50AE upper so I may be set if the 50AE works out. I'll holler if I start looking in to a 45ACP upper. Thanks. [;)]
