I have heard nothing but good things about the CMMG ramped bolts.

If this is going to be a dedicated 9mm AR, you may have better luck with a 9mm hammer and a standard 9 bolt. I went that route after I tired of tweaking swapped uppers.

Just to talk you out of my RRA 9mm buffer:
The heavier Spikes buffer helps keep the bolt closed longer to reduce ejection port noise. I have convinced myself that I can hear the difference.

I have also had empty brass get behind the bolt with the standard 9 buffer. PITA to clear. The longer buffer seems to address this type malfunction as well by limiting rearward bolt travel- which is a good thing.

Good luck!

Is this the one you are talking about?

Dave,

To each his own... For me its the WOW factor behind the trigger. Semi just seems a waste of ammo that could be shot a lot faster these days. You can be into a nice FA SMG in 9mm for under $4k today. The only reason I said anything is I see how much you guys spend on a semi rifle and I just can't see spending that much anymore unless its shooting more than one round at a time. 9mm is also not that expensive still... I grant that you will not be shooting it every other day but I would rather shoot less and enjoy more. But like I said, to each his own. I just like to plant the seed if you know what I mean.

Well as I have not seen any FAs under $4K I will stick to semi auto for now.

That's not the buffer I am talking about. I don't see it on Spikes site now.

Found it on AIM. http://www.aimsurplus.com/product.as...fer&groupid=53

It is the ST-9X. Don't know why it isn't on Spikes site now. I did a short search looking for it and found lots of other fans of this buffer. My Franken-build had some teething problems. Changed lowers, buffers and springs, triggers and hammers, polished everything internal including the CProducts mags, fiddled with the mag block and ejector. Not sure if the ST-9X is solely responsible for my AR running right now, but I am not taking it out.

Hope your build gives you less trouble. It's still the funnest rifle I own and worth the trouble.

Unsure which carbine buffer spring it has now. I swapped between 2 Bushmaster, a RRA and a misc. carbine buffer spring I had from an old Model 1 kit.

The ST-9X does not require a special buffer spring. Don't know if a heavy Wolff would have done anything better or worse. I would like to think I'm done tinkering with the internals so far as reliability is concerned.

M11s are $2.5K, Stens are about $3K, Reisings are about $4k... I guess thats it under $4k in 9mm. Try Sturmgewehr.com and subguns.com

Check this thread. Now there are even more options then when I posted:

Yeah i saw those but not the FA I was looking for. Guess I will have to get the Semi-WOW factor until I win the lottery.
