Hey guys, I’m new to Uzi platform. I went to look at what looks to be a NIB FA RR Vector Uzi chambered in 45. The lower looks like a MAC lower that runs grease gun mags. If I wanted to convert it to 9mm, besides barrel and bolt what else would need to be changed? Thanks in advance.

Should be as simple as barrel, bolt and FA lower. Id just buy a complete lower with all the parts in it. They are relatively cheap.

This will not only supply you with a lot of spare parts as insurance against future wear or breakage, but will also permit you to sell the .45-specific components for considerably more than you spend on the parts kit. Complete full-auto .45 conversion kits are on the order of $1000 these days, and .22 kits even more.

I'd get a barrel and a parts kit.

That will cover the 9mm conversion.

Since you have a GG lower I'd also keep the 45 setup.

I have a GG lower and they are far from cheap due to never showing up for sale.
I've seen them sell for 500 + for just the GG lower.
It's way better then the 10 and 16 round UZI 45 mags.

Since you are new to the Uzi platform, ask to see the form 3 or 4 on the gun. I have never seen a registered receiver Vector sell set up only for 45. It would make NO sense to get rid of the 9mm parts and sell the gun with the much more expensive 45 barrel, bolt, lower, and magazines. I suspect what you are seeing is a B&G 45 bolt (probably the least desirable conversion) in a Vector semi host.
