Product Preview: CMMG 9 AR Conversion Adapters

posted on October 29, 2019

AR-style pistol-caliber carbines chambered for 9 mm Luger typically require the use of a dedicated 9 mm lower receiver, but CMMG’s 9 AR Conversion (9 ARC) Magazines remove that requirement by allowing any unmodified AR-15 lower to function with the company’s Radial Delayed Blowback 9 mm Luger upper receivers. And taking the versatility of the system even further, CMMG’s 9 AR Conversion Adapters allow any standard (.223 Rem.) 30-round Gen 2 or Gen 3 Magpul PMAGs to be temporarily altered for 9 ARC compatibility. Just remove the magazine’s baseplate retainer and spring, insert the CMMG adapter, compress the spring and slide the factory baseplate back into place. Capable of up to a full 30 rounds of ammunition, the adapters can also be modified to limit capacity to either 10, 15 or 20 rounds. These adapters are available for $30 each, or $80 for a pack of three. For more information, please visit

Sniping In Korea: 1950-1953

When U.S. forces rushed to stop the North Koreans from overrunning South Korea in 1950, there were almost no American snipers. As the battle lines stabilized, that would change, and the war would become ideal for the employment of well-equipped and well-trained snipers.
