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).

The Sub2K takes glock mags, but a glock carbine it is not!

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.
