    There wasnt much said about them on the very short threads already searched on this kit from a while back and I was wondering if there is any new current info?

    My friend just bought a KelTec Sub 2000 but it felt rickity and the grip was splitting when you inserted the mag and the safety button works in the opposite direction than usual. I didnt like it.

    It's not legal here in Washington, if I'm correct. Otherwise, I'd love to own the kit.

    The grip looks like it really sucks, especially in the lower pic.:cool:

    Hey BAC, they make it for 1911s.

    OP, I had one in .40, bought it with a 2nd gen 22 frame installed. I shot it a few times then sold it. My version was a railed top and skeletonized stock. Accuracy was ok, granted I didn't shoot it a lot, but it was noisy, like an AR with a squeaky buufer spring.

    My guess is that converting the pistol into a carbine will work at least as well as converting a Corvette into a pickup truck...[​IMG]

    I agree with Bruce M; get the right tool for the job.

    I registered my G20 and P14 with CA DOJ with a hope that a decent carbine upper would come along.
    What's wrong with this one?

    I picked up the 1911 version over 15 years ago. It's a lot of fun, not too useful for anything in particular.

    Didnt cowboys carry a 44 SA pistol and a 44 lever action to extend their range and consolidate the ammo they carried?

    Didnt Navy SEAls use a pistol caliber carbine (HKMP5) for accurate shoulder fired CQB shooting?

    My wife and kids could probably shoot a Glock carbine better than a 12 gauge shotgun for self defense?

    I dont get the negative mindset for a Glock carbine?

    It may be a reliability issues, or an issue with saddling a Glock frame with something it was never made for. Just speculating, though...
