In short NO your current bolt will not work. You will need a new one.

Really depends on the bolt you are buying. SOME!!! BCG will work with both the traditional Colt 9mm AND a Glock mag.

The link is from CMMG. They do a lot of AR 9mm stuff and are great quality. The second picture on the page shows where SOME bolts are cut to work with Glock.

I personally have a SBR Colt Style 9mm AR. It uses the bolt i linked. to. Don't pay attention to the priced it can be found cheaper elsewhere.

Best of luck to you. If you need any help with it or more info post on this thread or PM me.

ok I have kind figured this out the bolt that uses glock mags is shaped like a glock mag the colt bolts are flat like the colt mags I thought there was more to it but I had early on set senility or something
