/:f The latest update [smilie=popcorn.gif] the parts are ordered as of this time. Expect them in hopefully by the end of the week. :ber
As for what I picked [smilie=033.gif] I will take some pictures and make that reveal when they all come in.
You may be as surprised as I am as to what I picked. Most set in stone but the upper, lower, bolt and barrel were not. Lots of brain work ](*,)
I literally changed my mind during the night :ham'r and settled it in the morning and put the order in. =:e

Have A Good Weekend ALL and get out to the range and _:

I finally got to test fire mine today, in the rain, ran well, its fast with the 3 round burst trigger in it....a couple of bugs to be work out .....the bolt shaves( rubs ) the top side feed lip of every mag though :-k , Korean, Glock and ETS mag now , I guess they will be dedicated to this gun, also the bolt stop has trouble holding the bolt open ???, might need to clearance it some or look at the enhanced models, its a Palmetto lower, palmetto 9mm bolt and Spikes Upper.... and the plastic mag button has to go, I know Spikes and others sell a billet aluminum one, I can see where the plastic mag button will definitely wear over time...it has a hard time inserting mags on a close bolt too :-k

I have read most people seem to have Some Issues getting these 9mm's working and tweaking them. Sorry to hear about the issues. I read about the plastic release also and when I ordered mine from Joe Bob's it offered a Odin Works Aluminum one. I read the reviews and it mentioned people bought if for the same reason. The plastic is square and catches, the Odin is rounded extended a bit and all just said get it. There was a good I think $20 savings to add it as opposed to just buying on it's own so I snatched one up at the last second. I will let you know what I think of it also when I get it. I am also going to order a heavier buffer I think from Heavy Buffers. I keep reading over and over heavy buffer is the way to go to smooth things out. Glad you got to get it to the range and shoot it.

JUST Caught the Link Below it before I signed out. Wow! Very NICE =D> _:

Love the Paint Job!

=:bye =:bye Also Once Again a Question #-o :-k

I know I can't use the BEV Block I used to assemble my first build.

Does anyone know IF or what is better to hold the Upper for the Barrel Install?

The Wheeler Upper Block or Something Else? :-k

Just not sure if or what is going to be different besides not having the Lug part in the barrel that the BEV Block fit so nicely into to lock it in?

Any and All Suggestions are Welcome.

You cant use that block....clamshell type or the 2 halves from plastiXrevolution or something check spelling ...its less than $20

And you will need a dedicated 9mm buffer and I recommend a spacer so you dont break the bolt release.

I used a 5" Tros barrel. I went with their barrel as it comes with the house tri-lug machined in which mates perfectly with my AAC evo suppressor. Went colt style for my first one and then a Lone Wolf G9 lower for my second build. Did regret going that route as there's no bolt catch after last round.

ss1 Thank You for Your Post, You must be a mind reader. I am pretty much done with my build [smilie=033.gif] don't tell anyone. I am getting ready to post the pictures and all [smilie=popcorn.gif] as soon as I can get the time to do so. During the last week or so, I have actually been considering a 5 or 5.5 inch barrel. I was thinking IF I am going to add it, I would be doing so mostly to keep it with the suppressor under the handguard. That would involve putting it on now buy just screwing it on and that's Not as secure as I would like it to be especially for run and gun 30 to 60 rounds a run. I had thought of the lug also. So a fortuitous post by you for sure. The barrel you mentioned is obviously the exact combination I was spinning around my mind. But didn't know existed until now. I will be looking into this for sure. [smilie=cheers1.gif]
