Oly 9mm AR-15 magazines ??

Postby JCS » Tue Feb 14, 2017 10:04 am

Hi - I have three Oly 9mm AR-15 magazines on order from Olympic Arms - my order shows as "Processing" - I talked with a guy at Oly today and he tells me that they are filling orders as fast as they can before closing the doors - in the event that I don't get my three magazines from Oly, what alternatives do I have for magazines for my 9mm Oly AR-15 ??

There are several viable options. Sten mag conversions with mag blocks will still work with the Oly system. There are also several companies that make dedicated lowers that use Glock magazines or other types of mags.

I’m assuming that you ordered up the newer polymer version magazines?

Here are the magazines I ordered - "K9M: AR-15 Magazine, 25 Round, 9mm" - are they the newer polymer mags you referred to?

What's that magwell block in the first picture? Something I can still order from Oly, or purchase somewhere else? There's a guy on YouTube that shows a magwell block (not yet in production, unfortunately) to allow a standard Oly lower and 9mm upper to take Glock mags - that'd be a sweet setup !

I have six (6) Oly magazines for my Oly AR-15 in 9mm - but the part of the loader that pushed the round down has become bent - and it seems loose - does anyone with a connection to Oly know if they have any replacements - or might there be some kind of alternative mag loader that'd work with the Oly 9mm mags ?? THANKS !!
