Since I was 17 years old, I’ve consistently said that “They need to build an M1 Carbine that fires 9mm and feeds from a regular pistol magazine.” I think I’ve said this on just about any gun forum I’ve talked about the M1 Carbine on.
And now, finally, many many years later… Someone has done just that. Using common and easy to find… and cheap to acquire, Beretta 92 Magazines. I’d have rather Glock, but barring Glock, Beretta 92 is the next best choice.
I love this idea. I’m completely jazzed about it. I’m looking forward to seeing many modifications to these… all manner of custom work. The thought of one of these in a Paratrooper configuration just makes me weak in the knees.
Some will ask about the Company. Citadel. These guys are in the Philippines… state of the art facility. And have put out some very decent 1911 pistols for very reasonable prices.
I’m unsure of the state of that facility now, giving the disaster that has befallen the Philippines with that Super Hurricane that almost wiped the whole country off the map. But here’s to hope.
