    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.

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

    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?

    Fun, cheaper to shoot. That's about it.

    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.
