where did you buy that upper? I haven't saw anything like that but then again there is a whole heck of a lot that I haven't seen.

user426 that looks bad ass I am thinking about buying a upper from Spike

The upper is made by a company called Spikes Tactical out of Orlando,FL .I bought two ST-15 pistol lowers from them and they are cutting down the barrel to my upper right now. Here is a link to one of spikes 9mm side cocking uppers on gunbroker

I think it was around 550.00 with shipping....... I probably could have shopped around for the components and assembled it myself but I figured it was worth the price and had to have it.....

Does the charging handle move with the bolt?

I really like it. This looks like it might make a very cool SBR! Any additional feedback on the upper? I tried Google and got nothing.

I thought the upper receiver might have been made by Socom Mfg., the link to their website is dead so you can't see the pix.....
I can say that after about 1500 rounds it is still running without a hitch....

Looks like an Ameetec to me. Check them out in the Industry forum.

Craig:

What magazine block & magazine setup is that on your DPMS lower receiver?

TIA, Jim

No offense, but what does it do that any other 9mm pistol doesn't? I can totally understand the 5.56 AR pistol, I can understand the 9mm AR SBR/carbine, but as for the 9mm AR pistol, what's the point?

PS It looks cool and I'm jealous.

There doesn't have to be a point to it.....It's different and I wanted to do it..... AND It does look cool...........

That thing's way cool! I've never seen anything like it. Although, personally, I think that thing is just begging to be SBRed...

At least he admits that he doesn't need a reason, and that most guns are because we just want one. Zombies beware....we're still thinking of you with each purchase.

I wonder if that upper would work with an oly .45 barrel/ejector setup?

Just how close does the charging handle pass to the bolt release?
