My new Mech Tech Carbine Conversion Unit (upper) and my Springer (lower) make for a neat 16.25" barreled .45 ACP carbine. Familiar operation for a 1911 man and just a lot of fun to shoot!

That's really different looks like it could be a really neat range toy and conversational piece

I've been looking at those for quite awhile now but could never justify buying it. If you don't mind me asking, how much was the kit and where did you purchase it? If I could find one cheap I might give it a try just for fun.

What are the legalities involved in making a rifle from a pistol?

Basic unit is $349.95 + shipping & handling from the manufacturer. http://www.mechtechsys.com. I saved a few bucks by ordering from AKJ Concealco, $336 + $19 shipping. http://www.concealco.com.

No federal restrictions using the CCU. Using your 1911 or Glock pistol receiver and adding the CCU as a top end you have a 16.25" barreled pistol, not a rifle. The stock on the CCU is legal. Then it is legal to take off the CCU unit and go back to your stock pistol mode, in my case a 5" barreled 1911 pistol. The CCU with or without receiver is not a NFA weapon and the CCU by itself is not a firearm, just an accessory. Disclaimer: There are restrictions in the Republik of Kalifornia and there may be other state/local restrictions that I am not aware of.

How has the reliability been as far as feeding and ejecting?

And how is the accuracy?

I have only had occasion to fire about 200 rounds thru it and only at ranges of 30-50 yards. It is accurate and it has been totally reliable, no malfunctions. The only drawback is that it is not designed to hold the bolt open after the last round is fired.

Pistol performance, from a rifle ?

Why ?

Want a rifle, grab a real rifle.

Its meant to be a fun range toy not replace a rifle.

I guess, but in that case, compare it to a 10/22, or .22 AR, and you've got a range toy that costs far more to shoot, and doesnt improve on anything.

Just seems like a solution to a problem that doesnt exist.

Yep. Not everything has to have some sort of practical or tactical application. It's OK to have a goofy gun just for the hell of it.

Do you have lime green leather pants ?

If you do, I can see your want for something like this.

I dont, if I want something shoulder fired, i'll pickup my AR, that fires rifle rounds. If I wanted a range toy, i'll pickup a .22 that closely mimics that same rifle.

Sometimes it just makes sense to get things that serve some sort of purpose, and/or have advantages over something that improves upon nothing.

I semi agree with you but everybody is differant and I keep repeating this but any gun that is SAFE to shoot and goes bang is fun to shoot. I would never buy one but other people will and I would shoot the hell out of it if someone put it in my hands. I would say HEY GUYS WATCH THIS.:rofl:

Just like ya said, i'd never buy it, its like those hood scoops at auto parts stores, people buy em and stick them on their cars all the time, looks stupid, benefits them none, just made their wallet lighter.

This is one of those items, just makes me look and shake my head.

But once you have 20 or more ARs something else is refreshing. Kinda like the bump stock on an AR.

If you've got 20 or more AR's its time to add a new hobby.

Congrats, looks like it would be fun to shoot.

Me, I would like to build a HK USC into one of these for launching 45acps.

When they still made the SA-9 Derringer I wanted one, but it was really impractical, so I held off and then they stopped making them and now i wised I had gotten one.

I wanted a Marlin Camp Carbine / Camp 9, but I thought they were impractical - why have a carbine when I could buy a .308? And then they stopped making them and i really wish I had gottn one.

I also wanted the H&K 94 but told myself it was too expensive and what would I do with it? Now I really wished I had just gotten one.

I think now - if I want something, I'm gonna get it. I've just had too many regrets talking myself out of guns I wanted.
