Default 9mm upper?

My wife wants me to buy a 9mm upper but isn't there more to it then just swapping out the upper and the mag adapter?

This one seems to come with everything needed for the conversion. At least according to the description.

High Standard manufacturing in Houston makes them. Upper, mag block and a very heavy buffer are all that is needed. The standard carbine buffer is 3 oz. I run a 6 oz 9mm buffer in mine. Midwayusa generally stocks them.
