What is the latest and greatest news regarding cost and availability of M1 Carbines in .502 Thunder sabre? Or .502 TS necked down to .440 Cor-bon (aka .40 cor-bon with a 7.62x39mm case head) for that matter (greater projectile selection)?

I only made one, and it is still running fine, however it does not have enough rounds on it yet, for me to call it a success. I would never even consider doing one in 440 Thunder Sabre. Say goodbye to the bolt lugs with that one.

Due to ecessive bolt thrust I take it?

Are you planning to offer them in 502 TS at all then? What about other calibers, particularly .357 mag and .44 Mag?

The further you neck down a cartridge, the more back thrust you will get on the bolt.

I have no plans to do any more M1 Carbine conversions at this time.
