Who currently makes a .45 ACP carbine available in the US? The Beretta Storm has a variant. HK used to import their USC, but no longer (I believe). Marlin once made a Camp Carbine, but no longer.

Anyone else?

Olympic .45ACP upper for your AR.

Uzi's can be had in .45ACP.

ETA I forgot all about the Thompson clones/Auto Ordnance/Kahr.

If you can find a Marlin Camp .45 I'd say buy it. I had one a long time ago and I'll always regret selling it. Very accurate and uses M1911 mags.

I would say go with a classic. Thompson.

I have always wished for a semi-auto Reising SMG clone.

There is a guy who is tooling up for a dedicated .45 AR lower that will take grease gun mags. That, combined with the above-mentioned upper should be pretty cool.

I have to agree that the .45 Camp Carbine would be a good choice.

The CC can be found for around $500. There is a guy local that has a SA reisling for around $900.

Personally I would wait and get a CNCgunsmithing 45 acp lower that takes grease guns mags. The magwell is solid and cut for the GG mags. Very cool!

I like a good thompson as well!

I ran into a CC in .45 at a pawn shop last year for $237 on the tag. Passed on it and bought a Plainfield M-1 Carbine for $167 instead. Went back three days later and it was gone They were having a going out of business sale and had prices slashed, missed that one.

I'm sorry to point this out but this is a violation of the "Get Both" principle.

Hey, that's my rifle! A few of the guys going to the Oregon ARF shoot this weekend will get as much trigger time with it as they have .45 ammo

MGI will also be offering a .45 M3 magwell for their modular lower and will be developing a .45 system for their modular upper as well. ( you can use the Oly upper with the M3 lower )

I knew you wouldnt mind cause it is the most bitching pic of the CAV lower I could find.
Link Posted: 1/20/2006 4:54:33 AM EDT
No, if I could get Stickman to take a pic then it would be bitchin!

I think Valkyre is making a semi grease gun, no?
Link Posted: 1/20/2006 8:36:19 AM EDT
Yes they are/were, cool rig but overpriced for what it is. If you want a nostalgic piece to display/shoot I'd say it's worthwhile ( If SBR'd) otherwise it's seriously outclassed by just about every other .45acp carbine on the market. It would be a good buy at $300 but not really at $750+

Just put a wooden stock on a MAC-10 and there you go.

There were semi-Resings available after the war. A buddy of my Dad's had two, and they were a hell of a lot of fun. But ate up a lot of ammo fast.

I'd try to find a used Marlin Camp Carbine, I think it's the best rifle out of the bunch, even if its not NIB.
Link Posted: 1/21/2006 12:23:20 AM EDT
There is a .45 conversion for FALs...
Link Posted: 1/21/2006 1:20:23 AM EDT
the special weapons .45 Mp5 clone

Tommy Gun?
Link Posted: 1/21/2006 3:21:53 AM EDT
A Tommy gun may be worth picking up, now that you can buy the drum mags for it again...
Link Posted: 1/21/2006 5:04:19 AM EDT
easist and one of the cheaper ones is a Mech Tech carbine conversion for your 1911 or Glock pistol.

One of my freinds has one in .460 rowland. its a blast to shoot and shoots any .45 auto ammo. he's got his on a paraordance frame. After i get my glock 20 that will be the next thing i get.
