    I think a 9mm carbine would be pretty damn cool.
    Cheap ammo, heavy bullet

    I have a Stirling M20P which is the .22 semi. I think it's great but I would never recommend one to someone, thanks to their Remington-tier QC.

    No , interestered in the bolt action made for the small new 22TCM , its centerfire , basically a 223 case cut to 25mm long to function in a hicap M1911 pistol , 40gr jacketed at 2100 fps out of 5 inche barrel , out of the rifle its 2800 fps .
    They make an interesting 45 M1911 that has a 22lr slide available , unlike most 22lr tops for 9mm/45 pistols , its all steel , like the CZ75 cadet , and NOT cheaper alloy

    Mean, I'm doing a ar15 9mm upper as well in e cat to use on possums as a laugh. I was looking at one of the 9mm mp5 clones but are too expensive and too much hassle with the police.

    What was your issue with the barrels?

    Looks like an interesting round

    Would be good to compare against a 9mm AR.
    After using a 9mm AR, I gotta have 1.

    Ones a 10.5 so a bit short, the other is 16 inch so a bit long. Yes mine will go on the E, some as you possum gun and a cheap rifle to use at the range.
