    I have been looking at the Roni Glock carbine conversion and it looks pretty interesting.

    Who here has one, has tried one out or has any feedback on such conversion kit?

    On a separate note, it requires the tax stamp as its a sbr, which is a process that I've never been thru but I'd imagine is quite tedious. So given the extra steps, I don't want to jump out and get this if it's not a solid performer.

    Your input is appreciated.

    Ohio has this quarky law about a gun that can fire 31 or more shots without reloading is considered a "machine gun."

    That's not "illegal" in Ohio, it's just that a such a gun needs to be in the ATF registry to comply with OHIO law. So, I sent a Form 1 on one of my Glocks so that I can run 33 round mags in them during our monthly carbine shoots. (It's just plain easier to use the same 33 rounders in my pistol and my carbine.)

    With that said, the paperwork is really pretty strait forward. There is nothing difficult to filling out a Form 1. If you can a CLEO sign off, then the extra step of forming a TRUST, or LLC/CORP is unneccesary which makes it that much easier.

    When the Form 1 comes back, I will probably buy one of these kits and try it out. I like the looks of the kit, and the fact that it just covers the entire pistol makes it more appealing, from a reliability standpoint. (imvho)

    Good info

    And I dont have hands on experience with them but the HERA arms kit looks better constructed. And everthing Ive seen from CAA looks cheap and fragile. YMMV

    Saw them at Shot and I think they will hold up. The price and tax stamp keeps me from buying one. Saving my cash for the Kel Tec shotgun in Oct.

    I shot a G18 in one of the Roni sbr set ups. Very nice, made the G18 much more controllable. If I had a G18 of my own, I would buy one for sure, if I didn't I would just get an AR.

    Evane if it's not considered a "machine gun" in your state it is still considered an SBR.

    Re-reading my post, I wasn't really clear. The OHIO law that states a gun that shoots more than 31 rounds without reloading is considered by OHIO law as a "Machine gun."

    In order to use high capacity magazines, you need to have the gun in the NFA Registry. The NFA has no magazine capacity laws, so it would be in the NFA Registry as a SBR. Since it is in the Registry, it meets the OHIO LAW as a "Machine gun" that is properly registered.

    Doesn't make much sense, but that's how it rolls.

    Got the same opinion, I went the HERA way
    Way better having 2 support point than just one.
