This little carbine is a rare puppy. They were manufactured in Auburn Washington, I think, a short 5 years or so. From 1988 to 1993. They were made in 9mm, 10mm, .40s&w, and .45acp. The 9mm used Sten mags and the other calibers used M3 Grease gun mags. They made both a carbine and a short barreled pistol version. They were designed by a retired LEO and are quite unique. To start with, they use a Sten/Sterling type round bolt and combine that with AK trigger parts. Back in the early 90's I had one in .45acp but had to get rid of it to pay bills after the ex left. It bummed me out for a long time. A good accurate, reliable nice looking carbine. Fast forward to 2005 and I found another carbine but this one is in 10mm. None the less, it is the real deal and I jumped all over it like stink on poop. I have lived in south King county since I was a teenager and I think it is very cool to have a firearm made here locally. So any question or comments? Let me know what you think.
