    Id be all about that in 45apc
    if it was made to be 765mm that would be ideal

    I would opt for a .22 LR firing solid bullets over the 7.65mm Browning (.32 ACP). The .22 is a lot cheaper to feed with similar ballistics to the 7.65mm. No argument with the .45 ACP!

    Its a neat concept,a small compact bolt gun in 9mm.....its a pity our small market size,would probably rule out producing a similar type of newly made carbine here...but I don't doubt there are so many hunters and shooters out there who would find such a carbine very useful in this age.I have often why the likes of GC have not had something similar made in China for sale here.

    @gundoc how much does it weigh . is the offset suppressor better than a concentric one. would it be possible to make one chambered in 38 special / 357 mag /357 maximum as I think that would be a good multi purpose as I could use 38 specials for homekill and 357 maximums for pigs and goats at longer ranges.

    the best bit about the non concentric suppressor is you can retain iron sights, mount scopes lower without seeing the supp ect

    765mm is approx 30 inches. would be a tad hard on the shoulder
