    If you want a pistol caliber carbine look no further than the Beretta storm. Why anyone would want a block carbine when they no longer are capable of designing something as simple as a recoil spring is beyond me???:dunno:

    There is no Glock Carbine because Gaston designed a pistol for the Austrian military contract.



    ....it's also the same reason the original mags do not drop free as only one was issued with the pistol.

    There is one. Kel-tec makes it (if you can find one).

    That was half joke, but it is a nice little weapon.

  9. No military is going to buy a 9mm carbine so Glock sees no point.

    And why a pistol carbine when a 5.56, about the same size and price, can be had?

    Just glue a spare pistol grip to a 3 foot section of a 2x4 and paint it black.

    It's not rocket surgery; get a metal tube, a basic fire control group, a heavy bolt and some springs....stuff a magazine in the side.
