Assume you owned a registered AW... Would it be possible to use a 9mm upper with a 10 round magazine?

On a REGISTERED AW why not? And if you had any of those full-capacity magazines before 2000 (that happen to work with your 9mm conversion) use those, too.

In fact, you could use a .50 BMG upper on a registered lower since the law is written that there's no need to reregister a .50 if it's already an AW.

It is specific about the date of purchase/construction of the .50BMG, though. That would be treading on thin ice.

So I have to produce a dated receipt showing proof that I obtained the upper before the .50 cutoff date? I don't think so. As long as the receiver was DROS'ed prior to the cutoff date, you should be okay. The .50 language is very specific about the date of DROS or construction, so theoretically any of the new lowers brought into the state after that date could be a problem. Older registered receivers are okay.

RRA, Olympic Arms and COlt make 9mm uppers.

i'd suggest the SNS industries mag block. They also can make for you 10 round magazines, no one else will sell 10 round 9mm magazines to california.

get a 9mm upper that will accept Uzi, sten, and m3 grease gun mags. you know, the UZi , Sten mags u legally bought pre Y2K.

Can anyone lay out which mags work with what upper/mag block kit? I have a few swedish K mags and a few sten and cobray. What kit works well?

You probably won't get must replies from people with experience with the 9mm conversions. I would recommend going over to the pistol caliber conversion forum from the AR-15 tab above.

From what I have READ it seems that uppers and mags/blocks can either get along very well or very poorly. I would stick to what the manufacture suggests. If you have the Sten mags, I believe there is a mag block that works well with the Oly uppers. Again, just what I remember reading.
