Who remembers the "D-Max"?

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.

Very cool! Where did you find it and what did you have to pay?

Oh man I haven't seen one of those in years; maybe late 90s. I always thought they'd be a nice pistol caliber carbine.

'gratz on the find. :)
