I know very little on this subject. I do know that I could buy a Rock River , Oly, or other complete rifle in 9mm for around $1000. Or I could buy an upper and futz with the mags, hammer, and other stuff, but it sounds like I'd have to dedicate a lower to just that one configuration. Back to complete rifle. Are there other not-so-expensive options for a 9mm carbine that can be suppressed?

Oh, and if this isn't the right forum, could the mods move it to the most appropriate one?

Thanks,

You could try to find a cheap marlin camp carbine in 9mm and have the barrel threaded or 3-lugged. Don't discount the AR upper quite yet. If you do some research in the pistol caliber forum you'll find that you don't necessarily need to dedicate a lower and that your hammer situation is not so cut and dry.

You could do a Marlin Camp carbine or buy an uzi for $650 and register it as an SBR for an additional $200.

Or just pony up the $6,000 for a FA uzi and go from there.

BTW,,,the brl i use on the 9mm is a tros three lug, i also have a MP5 with a three lug and my next purchase is a SWR trident


Sounds like maybe you built your uppers? I've looked around at some uppers at RRA's site. what kind of accuracy do 10.5" barrels give - 4-5" groups at 50 yds? 75 yds?
