Are there any sensible way of converting a 223 lower to glock 9mm?

Probably not. Even dedicated lowers have feeding problems with glock mags.

The last time I checked, mag blocks cost the same or more as a dedicated lower. 

 

So yes, totally sensible. In fact, you should buy two.

Dedicated lower is not as easy in Norway yet since PCC is not a recognized division, so what would be the best route, colt style upper?

Wow, he blew his gun up and goes for a reload. The loud noise and smoke coming from the wrong places is usually a sign to stop.

I especially like his grip. Especially with what looks like a 20" barrel, it's probably very easy to aim and hold the rifle steady that way.

To answer your question slemmo, I would be looking at colt mags if I was gonna block a lower.

I don’t think you can get magwell blocks for Glock - not enough room for the angled Glock mag.

here's the easy way:


I'm guessing he had a case head separation and the case was still mostly stuck in the chamber? He eventually after a few tries gets a round chambered and it goes off with a big kaboom. At which point he thinks 'yeah, keep trying to fire it'.

I would have thought even before the kaboom the fact it wouldnt chamber or ignite a round would be cause for concern.... I really do wonder about how these people tie their own shoelaces.
