Default Pistol Caliber Carbines. The semi auto kind.

Does anyone own one or more?

Do you have a favorite?

I have owned an Olympic Arms AR15 in 45 ACP for some time and enjoy it very much, but they have gone out of business and I am looking at others.

I have owned one for 3 days now. TNW aero survival rifle in 9mm. I've only fired 5 rounds to check function. Looks like it's going to be a fun little gun. It's a straight blowback and changing calibers to .40 S&W or .357 Sig only requires a bolt face change, a barrel and appropriate magazine. I need to pick up some Weaver style rings so I can scope it. So many guns (projects, chores, work, etc), so little time.

Aim small, miss small!!!

I've owned/own a few.
Had a beretta storm a little over 10yrs ago, in 45acp. Worked great, accuracy fell off around 75yds.
Built what was the first cz 26 semiauto subgun conversion as a carbine, it's 7.62x25 tokarev. Never really played with it past 50yds. Ended up selling it.
Built an uzi semiauto carbine from an smg parts set, still have it. It's sighted at 50yds, but life got busy right after I finished it, so all I know is out to 50. Seriously considering sbr'ing it, so it can look like an uzi should.
I have a brugger & thomet tp9 sbr, with suppressor. It's sighted around 25yds. Got it while building the uzi, so haven't gotten to do a lot with it either. Shot a 3-gun match or two with it, 20yds and less.
While I have had a like for the uzi since I was a kid, the tp9 is so short, and light, there is no comparison. The uzi is quite heavier than it appears.
Always wanted a Thompson, since I was a kid. Shot a couple. Maybe one day......

WOW! That is the best news have had heard all week. They are the only ones that make an AR15 upper, in 45 ACP that will work with any milspec lower.

Thanks carlflh!

Let us know how it works when you get some rounds downrange, I like the concept of these and the fact that you can configure it to left handed ejection.

I've got a few 9mm's ones and have two more bolts and uppers that I need to make barrels for. I'm still using milspec 223/556 lowers with magwell adaptors but have been looking at getting a couple dedicated 9mm colt pattern lowers. Spinta precision recently has/had cosmetic blem 9mm bolts for $109. They look nicer than the PSA bolt I have. The blem on one was a light spot in the finish and the other had a few tool marks in a non critical area. You can use a standard upper, but adding a 9mm deflector and port door is nice.
