    I'm curious about 9mm ar pistols.

    anyone know of the best place to get a kit?

    thinking 7.5 " barrel for a future SBR

    I've seen some kits from like RRA for $1100 but thats a bit much for me, any kits out there closer to 500 or 600?

    Not sure what you mean by kit, but I went ADCO for my upper:

    And VM-Hytech for my block:

    http://www.brownells.com/.aspx/sid=...130303030313430322d3130303030313430322d373831

    ~$500 Complete RRA upper
    $165 Mag Block
    $8 Uzi Mag
    ~$670

    It's interesting to see that they raised the price on the block, I think I paid $125 from Brownell's. I see the button is now more recessed as opposed to the old style w/ raised texture. On the plus side though, you no longer have to practically remanufacture them to use 32s. Internet wisdom at the time was to give "a few passes w/ the file" to the back of the block... which I did cautiously and conservatively. It took some serious dremel work before I could get one to go in at all, then I kept it tight for a few trips and went back and opened it up some more to get drop free.

    The finish is also a lot better looking... the old anodizing just didn't look right on a gun. I resprayed mine w/ an adhesion promoter and Rustoleum textured since I took this pic and it looks 1000000% better.
