Olympic Arms Carbine
Cav Arms Carbine
Auto-ordnance(Kahr) SA Thompson clone
1911 carbine kit
Beretta Storm carbine
Vulcan Arms V10-45-250 carbine
Valkyrie Arms SA grease gun clone


Am I missing any?

The Vulcan Arms carbine is very intriguing. If it wasn't for the bad rep they have, I'd be all over that.

Don't say HK USC or Marlin Camp carbine because they are not in current production.

Was hoping I'd missed somthing. I guess this is it.
Nobody make a semi-auto mac 10/45 anymore besides Vulcan?

still in production? Checking it out.
Thanks.

ETA yep Vector will do one for $595.

Is Vector Arms any good, or do they make junk?

No longer in production. Parts no longer imported. Otherwise very cool.

I remember really wanting to get one until I handled one. The top of the pistol grip is "blended" into the square receiver in such a way as to make it feel like you are holding a two-by-four. No mattet how many times I tried it, that blasted grip kept me from buying.

And a big +1 for the Beretta CX4 Storm. Great carbine, best carbine I have ever owned, and I have owned a bunch. My 9mm Storm is my go-to carbine in the house. Favorite rifle of some members of my household.....

The only thing about the .45 ACP BerettaCX4 is it uses the Cougar mags, 10 rounds only IIRC. Wish they had made a little beefier mag for it.

I think theres a company called feather industries, they make a 45 carbine.

Alas, Feather Industries went out of business, was bought by Mitchell Arms, who went bankrupt, AFAIK.

I have had a Beretta .45 on order for quite some time now. I wanted one since they came out, but waited for the .45 version. I should be getting it in a few weeks.

Well, as for the USC, I just like .45 carbines, and I do like the looks of the UMP.

Found something about "Masterpiece Arms" apparently they make a Mac 10/45 carbine clone called the MPA-1 or something like that. Apparently still in business, but their website really sucks, no but cheesy vids with no specs, prices or data.

I know Ruger makes a PC9 and 40, perhaps they have a 45 on the way.

Never shot a Storm in .45, but the 9mm I shot was a cool little gun.

I owned a PC4 (.40S&W). Heavy, very tough, very hard to take apart to clean, a million small parts, crappy sights, canted front sight... did I say HEAVY? Over-engineered. Kinda like a M1 Carbine for the 20th Century PC world. Sold it and never looked back.

Ok...scratch that.

What about one of those Mec-Tec(?) conversions for either a 1911 or some glock models? IIRC they use the grip and frame of the pistol but they are fitted into the longer "upper" which has the slide, bolt and all the other stuff built in.

Nevermind, _DR mention those in the original post.

I have one in 9mm, and I just LOVE the thiing big tine, so much so i see myself getting on in 45 in the near future, Are there any bigger mags made for it yet?

Rhineland arms makes kits to turn an FAL into .45 carbines. they have two kits, one for gg mags and another for thompson mags. i just bought one of their kits coverting a crappy mauser 98 i had laying around. it should be coming in pretty soon.

Ok, that's relatively cool.. But the Suomi drum conversions are just dead sexy
