Does a 9mm conversion require a different bolt and carrier? Thanks for any help.

yes and no. It comes as a one piece bolt assembly.

Dot_bob: I'm new here, but willing to help where I can. On the 9mm AR conversion you will also need to change the lower receiver's "hammer" if it is a semi-auto rifle. You can get a 9mm hammer at places like DPMS or Rock River Arms. They are usually around $15.00, hope this helps.

There are 2 common 9mm conversions, Colt style and Olympic style; none of the conversion parts are interchangeable between the two. The semi 9mm hammer need will depend on which style and which type of Colt bolt/carrier also.

Refer to the "rimfire-pistol caliber" forum.... There is a lot of 9mm info there. Read it all,,,, see the pics,,,, a lot of info to sort out and digest. It's all in there.
