Since I got an SP1, I have been thinking about parting out the 604 and turning into a 9mm carbine. Are there any retro type carbines besides the DOE 9mm's or just build something plain along the lines of the 6450? I dont see much on RBR, or if I'm missing something, please point it out.

Wasn' t there a Colt Commando designated  9mm ?

The really retro 9mms all had barrels under 11".

If you're looking for a 16" retro 9mm carbine, I don't know of one pre-A2.  However, that shouldn't stop you.
Make what you think looks cool, and I'm sure we'll all drool over it when you post pictures. . . and you WILL post pictures. . .

Yeah, that's why I was asking if there was anything along the lines of the 6450, if I become a stamp collector, I want a .22 can first. I figure getting rid of the barrel and bcg and replacing it with 9mm stuff would be the way to go. The rifle is already done anyway.

I think the Model 635SD is kind of neat, in a weird, ugly sort of way.

Fixed it. Just my .02 - I was a tax stamp and receiver pin work away from having my 635 clone done when I had to sell it. They really aren't a very good SMG, but as a semi-carbine, whole different thing. I did keep some of the Uzi mags however.

A co-worker wants the 604, so I may just put it all in the piggy bank and get a 6450. I like having a horsey on the side anyway.

I have a Colt 635 SBR clone built on a lightweight sporter receiver.  

It is fun as hell.

How about a Spanish Destroyer carbine for a really way back retro carbine?

I had to look the Destroyer up. That sounds like a horrible idea. However, some of the worst ideas I've ever had turned into the funniest stories I've ever told.

I haven't seen one in years.  They are kind of neat, but not in the same way our type of retro stuff is though.  It just popped into my head when I clicked on this thread for some reason.

I've got one.  It's an accurate little gun and lots of fun to shoot.   Ammo is easy enough to do w/ 9x23 Winchester brass/dies and Largo load data.

The "retro" companion in 9mm would be a Carl Gustav SMG... Including suppressed versions.

In .45, a suppressed M3.

Very good. I would LOVE a Swedish K - just beause. I have a Suomi kit I bought years ago for $19.95 when they were cheap just for this reason. I think one of the current Suomi semis would be a whole lot of gun for the money, but alas, my last day is Tuesday so...

ETA: NOthing said 'spook' in VN like a Swedish K or even an S&W model 76.
