Default Polymer for 9mm

Would a polymer lower take the 9mm? I see great deals on those lowers but, would want to build a 9mm to pair up with my pistol. Any thoughts?

9 is a fuzzy bunny compared to 5.56


It will easily handle it

If the small frame of a glock can handle it why question an AR lower? BTW if you get the right 9mm lower (forget what) it will take glock mags. If that happens to be what you carry.

I have been thinking about getting a polymer lower also. I have heard mixed reviews about them. There are some really great prices out there on the lowers. 9mm should not be a issue, because I have seen a Plum Crazy polymer lower handle .308 with no issues.

Personally I think over the years you'll never be sorry that you spent a little more and got a standard lower.
