    Just Right Carbine: Pistol Caliber Carbine

    Stumbled upon this little gun on the Guns and Ammo facebook page. Looks pretty sweet. Its offered in 9mm, .40 S&W, and .45 ACP. It takes Glock mags for the most part, however the .45 can be ordered to accept 1911 mags.

    Looks interesting, but for about half the price, I'd probably go with a "Carbine Conversion Unit" that fits on my existing Glock frames.
    I haven't seen one of the Glock models, but have shot TennMike's 1911 version
    Plus they have a wider range of Calibers available 9x19, 357 Sig, 40 S&W, 10mm & 45ACP

    When you are dead, you do not know that you are dead. It is only difficult for others.

    It is the same when you are STUPID.

    Re: Just Right Carbine: Pistol Caliber Carbine

    its been out for a while.

    my LGS had one in for a Glock mag. They arent the lightest toy in the box either!

    I do like the ambi controls and ability to make it into a lefty gun, eventho im not. iirc, the last time i checked, they didnt have alot of the differenet mag wells available and no idea on price. I still like my OA K9 & K45. If/when they come out with other mag wells, i maybe interested.

    I have seen a few writeups of the JR carbine, and I kinda wanted one, until I saw the procedure for cleaning it:

    Needs a crapload of special tools. I'll stick with my Keltec Sub 2000.

    Those are also ugly as sin. Neat conversions, but certainly not the most ergonomic.

    I'm with you snake, one of those in .45ACP would be super cool in my opinion.

    Detail stripping my 1911 CCU is a pain, too. Lots of screws have to be removed to get at the good bits. Not hard, just time intensive. That they use a readily available lower is a good selling point, though. And they make them for several different manufacturer's lowers. No need to putz around finding specific magazines; run what you already got.

    Mech Tech makes this in 10mm. The non functional front brake is a joke, but if you could get it threaded and put on the correct flash suppressor it would be interesting. A Buffalo Bore 10 mm 180 gr round would make just about 1000 FPE at muzzle, using my Glock 20 as a lower. If it shot 3 MOA it would be a nice 50 yard pig gun / brush gun, among other uses.

    Re: Mech Tech makes this in 10mm.

    The Mech Tech seemed to be the best option in a 10mm carbine for my usage. I like the results.

    Drifter, What kind of accuracy do you get out of it? Looks good.

    Dan,

    I'm still working up different loads to see what flavors it favors. Accuracy wise it's not as forgiving as my 14" Contender (or maybe I'm just more familiar with it). A mediocre shooter like myself should be able to put five rounds in a inch and a half circle at 50 feet and put most of a fifteen round magazine in six inch circle at 100 yards. With the right loads and a proficient shooter, it should be able to do better than that.

    Re: Mech Tech makes this in 10mm.

    Just for fun, I wonder if there is a slower burning powder you could use in that 16.25 inch barrel and increase the velocity of the 10mm. The Buffalo Bore 180gr hollow point rounds peak at around a 13 inch barrel at around 1575 fps and 1000 fpe.

    If you hand loaded with a 220 gr hard cast, how much energy could you get? 1100 maybe 1200 FPE?

    The "just right" carbine was the Ruger PC 9 and PC40. Not sure why they stopped making them.
    That don't confront me, as long as I get my money by next Friday.
