MechTech Carbine Conversion Unit.

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...http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_FoXyvaPSnVk/SCOXT26jDEI/AAAAAAAArqg/KvncucGWN60/s400/Corvette_C4_2.jpg

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...

Pssst, pay attention, mine is a Just Right carbine, not a TD.

They're not pretty, but they work well. It's tough to screw up a blowback carbine (although Kel Tec managed).

They look extremely cheap, but to each their own.

Guy at a match was using one. Did pretty well with it, and he said the Kriss 45 magazines work well.

The kit is heavy, converting your glock to accept the carbine isn't exactly click click carbine. You have remove your barrel block, and install their feed ramp. Then, put it in. Once it's in, unless you have an extended take down lever, it's hard to remove. So your not really going to convert your glock to a rifle on the fly. Also, the kit is HEAVY. Even with the skeletonized stock, which is annoying. You get this loud "PTHANG" every shot. The "loaded" model, is pretty expensive, and you could have yourself a keltec carbine, for that much, and 2 guns instead of 1 and a conversion. The keltec's I've handled surely didn't split when you installed the mag, maybe his needs to be looked at? Keltec has a fantastic warrantee.

I'm all for it, just not this one.

Recap - no sights, heavy. Pricey, skelontized model is annoying.

If I'm going to carry a long gun, I'd rather just have my LE6920 and get real rifle ballistics.

No offense but I think you're missing the point... The objective is to have a reliable carbine that takes the same caliber round and the same magazine as your side arm. This simplifies things on many levels and in many situations. Particularly urban settings where long range defense is impractical.

A person could have multiple, loaded, interchangeable magazines and in the event of firearm failure still be able to continue defense without sacrificing round count.:whistling:

I kinda like the RONIN G1 better just can't belive you have to file a Form 1 SBR for the kit :wow:

Interesting idea, but I personally see no need for something like that or a pistol caliber carbine in general. Service pistol calibers are underpowered, period. If I think I am going to need a long gun its going to be either my AR or 12g.

They're fun and cheaper to shoot than a rifle cartridge, but then again so is a .22.
