I've Wanted A 10mm Carbine For So Long....

But nothing available was affordable. So....since I had a 10mm 1911 type pistol already, I decided to got with a Mechtech CCU.

Took it to the range, man this thing is a hoot! Went through magazine after magazine with not one single failure to feed/fire. My only complaint is that the bolt does not lock back on the last round fired. If I wasn't seriously counting the shots I was pulling the trigger on an empty mag a lot. Of course, dummy me I take this to the range and forget to bring a screwdriver to adjust the scope. So I improvised enough to at least get the elevation about right. I'll remember next time and get the windage adjusted, then fine tun it. Here was my sighting in target set about 25 yards downrange.
Some people think I'm paranoid because I have so many guns. If I have lots of guns, what do I have to be paranoid about?

    Is that the Hi Point 911 carbine?

    Just kidding. Glad you made a plan come together, glad it's working for you. pistol caliber carbines are so much fun. And pistol caliber Carbines in a cartridge that can humanely take deer might be just the ticket for a bug out bag....... Especially if they break down and re-assemble easily.

    Now that the ATF has that pistol to rifle and back thing worked out these should be getting more popular. Not many options for the 10mm but these are neat. One of my future builds will be a Mac 10 carbine in 460 Rowland. I have been knocking around getting a 1911 jig and some 80%ers to play with.

    I suck because I got one, or that I wanted one?

    I've got the .45 ACP version; had it around 15 years more or less. They are fun to shoot!
