    I have, not impressed. Felt cheap and flimsy. Looking forward to seeing the real Glock rifle when and if it ever comes out.

    I was thinking of getting the kel tec sub 2000 in 9mm but when I saw that MechTech can do it for my 31 (.357sig) i am now debating it. Like others, I will wait and see what Glock does. Pretty happy with my M&P15 and SBRd M4 at the moment.

    I used to have one and sold it. It was very solid, heavy, ok accuracy, fairly easy to clean and reliable. I sold it because the ergonomics sucked, I didn't like the way it came to the shoulder. I much prefer my Beretta Storm.

    I truly wish someone would make a 10mm carbine...a good quality one.

    Me too. I thought about attempting conversion on an M-1 Carbine, as I hear it's been done, but I've not been able to find good documentation on it.

    I've shot the 1911 version, in .45 ACP. It was neat, accurate, fun to shoot. However, it also had this really annoying steel band buttstock, that made this silly "PTH-ANG!" every time you shot. It was also HEAVY (for a small carbine). Even the glock version, which I've held. Also, there's not real clear ruling that I've found, that says you can take your carbine, back to a pistol, without creating a SBR.

    Read up on the Fiala/Neos rulings by the ATF...back in the 30's, Fiala made a pistol/carbine kit that is much like
    the Beretta Neos pistol/Carbine kit made today. They used the old Fiala ruling to say that the NEOS could be changed back and forth...
    IF...and only if...you followed these steps precisely...
    (Cliff Notes Version ;) )
    When converting from Pistol to Carbine, you must first...
    A. Remove the pistol barrel FIRST.
    B. Attach the Carbine Buttstock SECOND.
    C. Attach the Carbine Barrel THIRD.

    When converting back to Pistol Configuration, steps in this order are the only legal way.
    D. Remove the Carbine Barrel FIRST.
    E. Remove the Carbine Buttstock SECOND.
    F. Attach the pistol barrel THIRD.

    Assembling/dissasembling in ANY other order than the above does tend to create an SBR, which requires a Tax Stamp.

    If you want to avoid ALL issues, just get the $200 stamp...it ain't that big a deal other than the long wait & background check.
    If you already passed the checks & have an FFL 3 C&R license or other FFL/stamps, it'll tend come back faster.

    What I really need to do is find an old Marlin Camp 45, and figure out how to convert it to 10mm ;)

    Reline barrel to 10mm...
    Put in heavier Wolf recoil springs...
    hrm.....might work ;)

    Sounds like a Hell of an idea. If you come up with a plan or some information on this having been done, please let me know.

    I was able to get this kit at our local gun show (Philippines). Unlike in the USA where I heard you need another license when putting the kit on, here there is no such requirement.

    They have to license, and can only own so many. Take the good with the bad.

    You don't need a tax stamp if you aren't making a short barrel rifle. The kit has a longer barrel.
