    9mm bolt action / low mag capacity options

    Hello all

    My apparently scarily evil (or evilly scary) but never fired (bought Jan 19) 9mm carbine will be handed in December. I also bought a goodly supply of 9mil ammo to fire through it. So, now I'm looking for a bolt action or otherwise "legal" replacement to use the ammo in.

    Searching the Gun City website does not provide choices, unless I searched wrong. And now that all semi-auto pistol carbines are also history if I understand correctly, I'm wondering if I have any options in legal long guns for 9mil.

    Thanks in advance.

    Is it a PC9?

    I would think you might find a piggin gun in 9mm, but as for repeaters... not so much.
    You might turn up a Rugger77/357 or something which could be converted

    I never understood why no ones makes 9mm or 45 lever actions. It seems so obvious.

    Youd almost think with a name like PC 9 it would be "PC" enough for them to let you keep it.....If only......Politically Correct / Police Constable 9mm.

    Or revolver rifle, break barrel for easy stowage as well as that Webley wonder of six simultaneous extraction pings.

    Could message Ken at 55six and see if he is getting anything suitable in or can import it for you?

    The revolver rifles weren't able to be approved. Maybe a 9mm de lisle carbine project, using 9mm 1911 mags perhaps?
    Identify your target beyond all doubt
