    Been looking for a .45 acp rifle, like the Marlin Camp Carbine. Are there others similar to that out there?

    The Areo takes standard Glock 45acp magazines, if that helps in the think about it process...

    And is Oregon Made!!!!

    It will be my next long gun, whenever I break from the IowesSoMuch...

    Money is cheap to replace...

    Wood furniture like this?

    FYI, this is a M10-45 full auto. Most people would call it a MAC10. No, it isn't mine.

    There was a Mauser for sell in the classifieds a few months ago that was .45 ACP. I thought the price was a bit high, but I don't know, it's a market I am just not in.

    That is too cool! Too rich for my blood, but I'd love to shoot it.

    I have an AR-45 carbine. The upper was made by Olympic Arms but at the time I built it, the company was known as SGW. That was back in the 90's. I love that carbine and will never get rid of it. It has brought home a few trophies. I went one step farther. I did not want to be limited to only 16 rounds from an UZI mag. So I peeled off the side of a grease gun mag and slightly opened up the mag well to allow it to fit. Now I have a 30 round mage for my carbine.
    As far as another carbine. I have a real IMI, stamped .45acp Uzi carbine. Because of it's value and rarity I don't shoot it a bunch. Every once and awhile I will run a mag threw it.
    If you can find one. Up here in Auburn Washington for just a few short years, there was a manufacturer that made a .45acp carbine called D-Max. I had one and am kicking myself for years when I got rid of it. Luckily a couple of years ago I found a D-Max in 10mm. Very close to .45acp. I will NEVER get rid of this one. It has a side mounted mag so the 30 round grease gun mag does not interfere when you shoot it prone. It was designed by a former LEO. It uses a Sten or Sterling type round bolt and AK trigger parts. The value to me is that it was made right here at my back door in Auburn Washington. I have pictures of my D-Max and will post them when I have some more time.
    Recently I have picked up the most modern .45acp carbine you can get. I have a Kriss Vector carbine that I am very much in love with. It also takes standard Glock 21 mags. With the Kriss mag extension you can have 30 round mags. Everytime I pick it up, I need a towel........lol

    Thank you for posting that info. Yes that is a picture of my D-Max. They were made in Auburn Washington between 1987 and 1993. I love that carbine. I do not know who PGW is and if they are manufacturing the carbine as we speak. If they are it is new news to me.

    Love my Beretta CX4. Mine is 9mm, but they make it in .45 as well. The designer also designed a couple of Ferraris ;-) Mine is undergoing a face lift as we speak. Will post pictures in a few weeks.

    I've got a Mech-Tech upper on a Glock 21 frame, and it's totally reliable, like a blowback action ought to be. After I got it, TNW came out with their ASR .45 carbine, and I'd probably have bought that one if I had it to do over again. It's pricey, but my FFL says it's worth it.

    Still, with the custom-fitted Uzi folding stock and threaded muzzle, I've got no complaints about my Mech-Tech. It's nice that you can just order it and have it dropped off at your door, since the upper on a Glock isn't the "gun."

    Here she is, with an ATI reddot and Osprey can:

    The folding front grip that covers the trigger is the only safety it has, which is okie-dokie with ATF provided you don't leave it on when the frame is switched back to the pistol upper.

    @chemist - who did the threading for you? I've been looking at getting one of these myself, but noticed that MechTech doesn't offer threading. Was that done locally? If so, by whom?

    Mr. Patrick Murphy at ORL-LLC is a 2A true believer, who isn't into maximizing his short-term profit. I'm a fan!
    If you need work done, Patrick will either do it in his shop or hook you up with someone who can.

    Tom Denall did the threading on mine and did a great job, highly recommended.
