    just right carbine .45acp

    Does anyone know if the .45 is more prone to stoppages than the 9mm? and if there is any knowledge out there about what to do about it?

    The factory warranty would be all I need if I lived in the states....

    I'm thinking about buying one and want the .45 for smacking naughty wabbits hard

    Thanks in advance,

    My mate has one and it is terrible for stoppages. He has devised a method to prevent them but it involved a lengthy reloading process and was against the idea of having a cheap pistol cal carbine with cheap bulk ammo

    Dam. I have done a bit of youtube research.... and found a couple of reviews bagging it. but have found more praising it. Mostly it seemed the owner sent it back to the JRC and it was fixed, I'm hoping that somebody knows what the fix is? hopefully it is a simple part exchange or addition etc.
    Thanks for the feedback, might be time to email JRC and ask them...

    the most humane ever.... even manage to make a nice little burrow for their orphaned offspring once the round passes through them! (i hope no greenies read that...)

    The .45 ACP is born subsonic. Therefore the fairest comparison (I assume you'd want to use a silencer) would be against 9x19mm subsonics. The 9mm subs I understand are less reliable in blowback semi-autos, but someone may wish to correct me on that.
    Guns don't kill people - drivers do.

    I've got a JRC in 9mm, it's been really reliable with only the occasional smashed case while ejecting the last round in the mag. I had mine cut down and suppressor permanently attached, runs perfectly with home brew sub sonic ammo.
