    No such law in the safe act. Removing the pistol grip makes it legal again.

    That is awesome. I'm going to look those guys up.

    I bet you could use that adapter with a different insert for 10mm/40S&W, probably even 45acp.

    After doing some thinking, I bet an adapter like that could be made for 357 magnum. You could use a standard 9mm barrel and ream the chamber out to 357 magnum or maybe even 357 maximum.

    Brainstorming some 44 magnums up in my head right now too.

    You guys have me laughing here at my workstation reading the excitement in your posts. I'm real interested in this since I have yet to build a proper AR. I could finally do that and just get extra mags and swap the upper to a 9mm and run this mag adapter setup and just swap back when I want to go back to 5.56. This is great for the guys that have SBR tax stamps on some of their lowers and wanted to try 9mm etc. I first saw this on arfcom and the guys there contacted Mean Arms as well and they said MSRP is $50. They(ppl over on arfcom) speculated seeing them maybe for around $40 on shelves at stores.

    BTW I forgot to add that I was reading the comments section from that video and they responded to a question from TGC about being able to ditch using adapter blocks then and the response was this

    "That is correct, no need for an adapter block. Use your standard AR lower with a 9mm upper of your choice. You will be able to train and maintain muscle memory using your 30 round Pmag magazine body instead of the small Glock style magazine. The product is shipped as a 10 round unit and the customer can choose to have 15, 20 or 30 rounds by cutting the round capacity limiter at marked locations. It also maintains last round bolt hold open function as some other solutions do not. As with all Mean products it has a Lifetime Warranty. The product is Patent Pending and will be released in late August of 2018."

    Got a pretty timely reply from mean arms about the adapter.

    "The 9mm adapter is in testing now and they will have an MSRP of approximately $49.99

    Which 9 mm upper style? Colt mag, Glock mag, or something else?

    We have successfully tested with both Colt and Glock style BCGs/uppers of multiple manufacturers in the 9mm AR industry and have not identified any specific variants that this does not function with. We at Mean Arms will provide a 30 day money-back guarantee and a lifetime warranty on the Caliber Converter, so if the caliber converter does not function with your AR build configuration you can just send it back and receive a full refund. If you have any concerns on your build, please contact us with more details pertaining to your rifle
    Regards,
    Tommy"

    the pistol grip was a killer for this laws but if your PPC takes a mag in the pistol grip you stuck. I'm still saving g for the rugger.

    Yeah, 5 years ago, a lot of people said 9mm was obsolete. Not worth even shooting anymore.

    Now, .40 S&W is on the decline, the military is starting to go with other calibers than 556. We are living in bizarro world.

    Being nearly 100 years old, folks can say what they want about the 9mm, but it's proven its' worth the world over. It's hung a lot tags on a lot of toes.

    Well I hope that Mean mag insert is better then their loader.

    I would rather a 40 carbine 0r 10mm. Even a Super 38 over a 9mm
