    Now I want a 9mm M1 carbine

    How cool would this be if it worked? I can't believe that an American gun company hasn't thought of this before. I would buy the hell out of this.

    I was somewhat interested in this rifle - until I heard the price. Then after watching the video I'm pretty sure that I do NOT want one anymore.

      I'd like to see Ruger put one up...

        Yeah, Ruger would do it right. I would like to keep the Beretta mags though.

          Ruger did a great job with the Precision Rifle, I think they can pull that off with a M1 Carbine 9mm..

            They wouldn't have to go far from their old PC-9.

                I have a Legacy Sports International Citadel M1 - 22 Carbine and I am not happy with it (although it did receive some good reviews on YouTube).

                See attached; mine does not have the scary and dangerous faux plastic bayonet lug.

                I bought it when it first came out but I did not shoot it until this past weekend. It misfired a lot despite using different brand ammo (maybe it is just a part of the break-in period), the safety button is loose, and the trigger jammed/locked in the fired position after approximately 100 rounds.

                I considered buying the 9mm version but that was before I fired this rifle. Instead, I will continue to keep my eye out for a Ruger PC9.


                By the way, does anyone know how I can fix my trigger?

                  If you want an M1 carbine, get an M1 carbine. If you want a 9mm carbine, there are lots of better options out there.

                  The M1 carbine is really not that great a rifle. It takes an oddball cartridge and it's not very accurate. The only reason to own one is just to have an M1 carbine. If you want a 9mm carbine, I wouldn't base a new rifle on the M1's design.

                    I prefer my old Ruger 44 Carbine. Taken more deer with that rifle than any others.

                      I agree. The only reason why I wanted a M1 replica 9mm carbine was because it is a 9 mm rifle which is SAFE Act compliant, and has a removable magazine.

                      I have a Hi Point 995TSGFL which I obviously bought pre-Safe Act. She is ugly, but you should have seen her older sister.

                      Actually, she seems prettier and prettier to me each day because she is always good to me.

                      As they say, it is the beauty on the inside which counts!

                        Yes, but you can shoot the 9mm for 1/3 of the cost of the .44Mag, AND have a good chance at accuracy beyond the third shot.

                          I reload for the .44mag, and I can take 5 shots and have them touching most of the time. The older Ruger deer stalkers are great little rifles.

                            Yes they are. My Dad has been collecting them for years. The thin barrel is the ONLY weak link, IF you can't get the job done right in the first few shots.
