Does this work with standard lowers? FA bolt carrier? What mags?
Diesel R on Nov 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Need a 9mm Glock or Colt lower. It already comes with a blowback bolt carrier. Takes double stack Glock mags or Colt mags ( depending on which lower you get )
If i already have a 556 lower do I just need a magazine adapter?
Dbb1911 on Nov 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, or the EndoMag 9MM by Mean Arms will work as well with standard P-Mags.
Does this need a dedicated pistol lower to build a pistol in Michigan?
Steve C on Nov 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes It needs a PSA 9mm Lower reciever.
Does this upper facilitate a "last round hold open" function or is that a feature of the lower?
Eric on Nov 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Last round hold open is a feature incorporated into a lower receiver.
what is the rail inside diameter?
m h on Nov 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The inside diameter of the rail is ~1.35"
Is there a certain 9mm ammo grain to run through this upper?
Michael R on Nov 28, 2018
Will this upper function with a New Frontier Armory C5 lower? It feeds from MP5 magazines.
David R on Dec 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No. That lower has what I call a magazine stop (that prevents the MP5 mag from going in further) that hits the bolt on this upper.
Is this compatible with law tactical folder and fostech echo triggers?
daxh1 on Dec 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes . Any standard AR upper will work with the law tactical..
What is the inside diameter of the handguard? I'm wanting to put a suppressor on this.
Mason on Nov 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: .135, most suppressors will fit.
Can the can be removed for addition of a suppressor?
Dan S on Nov 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes it can. 1/2-36 threads on this barrel.
What is the overall length of upper or length of barrel plus flash can info would be helpful?
Josh B on Nov 5, 2018
will this bolt work with a gen 2 fostec trigger?
hondafig on Feb 7, 2019
Is the BCG compatible with a LAW tactical extension?
Matt H on Jan 28, 2019
if i put an 11" can on it, would it then be league to put it in a rifle lower ?
paul s on Nov 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: it depends.
assuming this has a legal length of 4 inches and you attach an 11 inch can to it you would still need another inch to meet the minimum 16 inch requirement.
4+11=15 +1 =16 but this would only count if all devices are welded together. if you can take it apart and at any point the entire configuration is less than 16 it cannot be a standard rifle barrel.

so if you had this and an 11 in can and a 1inch spacer or muzzle brake between them it could be 16 inches overall and still not be legal.
it would require welding the barrel to the muzzlebrake to the can to count as a 16 in barrel.
I have a ad9 conversation and it requires a bolt with glock cut. Does the upper's bolt have the glock cut in it?
Jason L on Dec 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: yes
Does anyone know the Inside Diameter of the handguard? Or, at least the OD of the flash can?
Adam S on Nov 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: 1.2 inches is the outside diameter of the can

this lower work w/ this upper PSA Gen4 ?
carlitod on Apr 22, 2019
PSA Gen4 4
PSA Gen4 4" 9mm 5" Lightweight M-Lok Railed Upper - With BCG & CH - 5165450004
PSA PA-9 Billet Glock®-style MOE EPT Adjustable brace Lower - 5165450178
PSA PA-9 Billet Glock®-style MOE EPT Adjustable brace Lower - 5165450178
BEST ANSWER: It should work ! I set mine on a Colt .223 lower w/ magwell adaptor using 9mm colt mags .Ran flawlessly !!! The chamber is conical so no feed ramp is needed, so feeds straight in.I would get a slightly longer BBL. 6,7 or 8"so u can use a supressor because end of threads are inside handguard, a pain !
Is there a spacific Glock mag adaptor I need for the standard lower or will any mag adapter work with this upper ?
Trent on Dec 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I am running the Mean Arms mag adapter
Will this drop directly in my ar15 lower with stern defense mag conversion?
Tandh on May 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It was compatible with the stern defense conversion but I was very disappointed with it. It was only compatible with new Glock magazines that have mag catches on both sides. It also would not drop mags freely you had to remove them because the tolerances weren’t very good.

I have since found a product from a company called mean arms. It is a 9 mm P mag conversion kit. I bought the three magazine conversion kit I’ve run all of them through that upper on a Palmeadow lower. A few of them we’re holding the last round but after a few mag dumps that cleared up.

Hope that helps
Www. Meanarms .com
Can I place this upper on another PSA 5.56 pistol lower and it would work and cycle fine? Understandably would have to get ENDO mag conversion kits for magazines.
Michael P on May 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: You’ll have to change it to a 9 mm buffer and is likely a heavier spring, AR10 type. You may also need a spacer or a few quarters in the bottom of your buffer tube to make sure you don’t tear up your boat couch. Your hammer may not work if it isn’t rounded on the forward edge.
Has anyone installed any kind of foregrip/hand stop on this? Curious if there's enough space.
Matt D on Mar 9, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I added a Magpul M-lok angled foregrip. I could only use one M-lok nut & bolt. Tightened down well with blue lock tite. Seems to be holding well after shooting the AR9 on the range.
Will this work on a C-5 lower platform?
Terry S on Feb 15, 2019
BEST ANSWER: If you are referring to New Frontier Armory’s C-5 lower receiver, the answer is no. The NFA C-5 lower has a magazine limiter that sticks high above the receiver that would hit the bolt on this upper. If a slot is machined into the bolt to clear the magazine limiter, that might work, but I have not tried it.
Is the can removable for other flash hinders or mussel breaks?
Andy L on Feb 11, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes. Its a threaded barrel so the can is removable. I had to disassemble mine for hyro-dip.
If I put this on a standard ar15 pistol lower, with and Endo mag for the pmag, what else would I need to make it function properly, and would it cause damage to the lower?
Paul I on Jan 15, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Well, a standard AR buffer won't work, so you'll need one of those. Other than that your answer depends on what you consider 'functioning properly'. There are lots of different routes you could go, but if you want proper function, you should ditch the ar15 lower and get yourself an ar9 lower that runs colt mags. Since that particular platform has been around a while, LRBHO is built in and the feed ramp is built in.
Is the Dolos kit compatible with this?
Kevin D on Jul 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Haven't tried it, but since the upper uses a milspec barrel nut, I would say yes. You will need to research if your specific handguard is compatible with this barrel nut setup.
What are the parts I would need to complete the build using the Betsy Ross 9mm lower I purchased Friday?
Will P on Jul 7, 2019
BEST ANSWER: You will need a lowers parts kit , or drop in trigger, a pistol brace or pistol tube , and a red dot or flip up sites. And watch some utube videos.

NOT A Good Fit
I am disappointed in this product. The fit with a lower needed to be machined to fit and the lrho had to be filed to fit correctly just to close the front and rear pins. These were. ot due to the casting, as I have prints for fit and finish.

You need this upper!
Upper is awesome. Paired with a Black Dirt Rifleworks 9mm Buffer and no issues. Shot 200 rounds of multiple ammo types and reloads without issue. My only wish is that there were enough slots to add a m-lok handstop. I also was impressed that it was shipped the next day after my order.

Great Upper!
Bought this 4" upper to pair with a PSA 9mm complete lower and they both match up perfect together. Fit and finish are top notch and have run over 250 flawless rounds through it so far. Out of all my pistol builds this is by far my favorite!

I like my upper 9 mm . Only thing I didn't know if you buy a short Barrel, you have to buy a pistol lower to be legal.

Great 9mm!
Great pistol, shoots great. Only reason I gave it four stars is due to having to order a different handrail to fit my suppressor.
Need an after market handrail. The hand rail it comes with doesn’t have clearance for a 1.3” can.
