I'll buy one if I can get it for $500 or less. I would get a real .30 cal carbine but I would have to travel 45 miles just to shoot it. I can shoot 9mm carbines at my local range all day long. Plus I have plenty of 9mm reloading components.

7.62x25 would be a good choice as well.

Tell the idiots at your range that the .30 carbine round is practically a pistol round anyway.

Show them this too:



If they still won't let you shoot a .30 carbine there, they're morons and you should not give them your business just on principle.

Now if it comes as faithful reproduction of the M1 in 9mm I am sold, especially if it takes 92FS mags, but if it takes glock mags I will go and buy some glock mags and a G19 later. Now if they have one with a Paratrooper stock

Ammo cost. Some people will want to shoot something that hits harder than 22lr, not worry about chasing down cases for reloading, and something that doesn't cost a stupid amount of money per round.

Beretta 92 mags makes the most sense. Glock mags require a funky angle that would ruin the lines of the gun, and they're necessarily thick due to the polymer shell.

Because most of us wouldn't use it to clear our house with it. It'd just be cool to have. Additionally, some of us would buy one to hunt with. A 45, 10mm, or 357 model would be tits since some of us are limited to shotguns and thundersticks for deer.

No, not a mini14, a carbine in 5.56.



A mini 14 has the same gas system as an M1 Carbine....

No they don't. Not even close.

The M1 Carbine has a short stroke gas piston. The Mini-14 has a hollow piston affixed to the gas block. The slide has a cylinder bored out of the front that slides over the piston.

(Over the years I've owned four Carbines and two Mini-14s.)

How do you like the .45 mech tech? I tried out one of the first gen ones on my Kimber, but I didn't get to run it beyond indoor pistol distances. How's it for effective range?

I have the same question about my 10mm, because I haven't managed to get it to a proper rifle range yet.
