Hello,
I'd like to get a pistol setup with one of the rifle conversion kits. I've seen these for the 1911's but they are rare.

Do any of you know of a carbine conversion kit for a Beretta M9? If I can't use my beretta, what would be the best pistol to buy if you are specifically looking to get a carbine kit for it also.

I'm not opposed to buying a new pistol, but I'd rather use my beretta if possible. If possible, I'd rather keep the new pistol & carbine kit in 9mm since I already reload that and have it in stock.
Just happy to be here!

I've got nothing against the CX4 Storm, but I've just had a hard time finding a good deal on them. They just seem to cost too much for a 100 yard carbine.

I'll look into the kel-tec. I wasn't really aware of them.

I've thought those conversions were pretty cool as well. My only concern is that the BATF has stated that the T/C exception only applies to T/C products. Anything else is still covered by the "once a rifle, always a rifle" rule - if you convert a pistol to a rifle, you cannot legally convert it back into a pistol.

im not aware of any other conversions other then the mech-tech.

there are other carbines that uses pistol mags. OA, Marlin, Ruger, and Beretta as mentioned, there maybe a few more, but i dont recall at this moment.
