I'm half toying with the idea of getting a pistol caliber carbine again. As I've been looking around I keep wondering why no love for the good ol .45? There are so many options on 9mm but almost no one makes a .45. have thought about a 1927a1, but they're definitely on the pricy side and also heavy. There are a few companies that make ARish kits, but again on the pricy side. Not in a hurry, maybe someone will come out with something interesting sometime soon.
