And it can take Glock mags. If they make an adapter that works with S&W M&P mags, I'll get one the day I find out.

Huh huh "PC Carbine" ... that's funny raht der. ;-)

Had one many years ago (decent little rifle) but sold it. Now have a Marlin Camp 9. Like it much better.

Interesting, given I am stuck in the gun hellhole known as NJ for at least a few more years. Hopefully, they bring one out in .45 ACP.

Reaction to it has been funny. On another forum, folks would complain that if you gave them free suitcases of cash, that the bills were too new|old|large|small.

I have a Camp 9, an AR pistol (in 9mm) with a Tailhook Mod 2 arm brace and the lower (Upper is getting bought soon) for an AR 9mm rifle. I am probably good in that area.

It is good to see SOME in the manufacturing side are bowing to the will of the people regarding mags and not making you avoid their gun because of $60 proprietary mags.

I think I'd like one of those with glock mags in it, 33 round ones. But I think I'd like it better in .45 acp with say a 20 round mag.

If I got the 9mm though, I think I'd want a matching pistol. But probably not willing to buy a Glock. I have an SR9 as it happens. Have to look and see if there are hi-cap mags that fit an SR9.

edit: Well how about that, there are 32 round SR9 mags from promag. Looks like this just got on my want one soon list.

I'm a big fan of pistol-caliber carbines, in fact, I have two of them. Of course, mine are lever-actions, in .357 Mag. and .45 Colt.

I guess, at some point, I'm going to have to come into the 20th century, won't I?

Give it a hundred years or so and see how this new fangled stuff works out first. :mrgreen:

Now that I have a couple of pieces of Combat Tupperware these sound interesting, and cheaper than the the AR platform based ones using Glock mags I had been looking at.

That being said, I still have a hankering for a lever action .357 to go with my S&W Mod 19

Go for it! It's the most fun you can have and still keep your clothes on! We love ours (technically, it's The Boss's, since she has dibs on any .357 that comes into the house, but she lets me shoot it once in a great while), and they are silly accurate inside of 100 yards. The Boss has taken a couple of deer, and several hogs with hers, using GP-100 proof handloads.
