I would love something in 9mm thats CA legal. The MP5 would be awesome but it is 15k and up plus its not CA legal. I then thought maybe an Uzi but those are not CA legal. Then I looked at the Berretta CX4 but those aren't CA legal either. Who makes a CA legal 9mm carbine thats affordable and doesn't look like :crazy: ? I keep looking but can't seem to find anything cool.

Why would you want a 9mm carbine?

Cheap ammo. Fun to shoot at the steel targets at the Angeles pistol range. It doesn't have to be a 9mm but some sort of pistol caliber. I am just wondering what the options are? Maybe I need something like this for the range ahahaha. :crazy:

Marlin used to make a "camp carbine" you could check to see if they still do.

track down a Winchester Trapper they came in .357 and .44 plus some other rifle calibers... No longer made but you can probably find a used one for a good price.

I have one of these, very cool little carbine. Got it for 300 bucks from a guy on another gun forum.You can look into Ruger PC9, but they are expensive. Probably even more so now. You can also get a Hi-point carbine with a bullet-button. Or just skip all that and build a 9MM AR. :1106:

Heck, for just fun, cheap shooting, you can't beat a 22LR in my opinion.

Why not build an AR with a 9mm upper? If you already have an AR, you just need the upper, mag adapter and magazine (I think that's all you would need).

Well...do you currently have a Glock or a 1911 in 9mm? If you do, then you can buy one of these: A Carbine Conversion Unit. I have one for my Glock 20 in 10mm. I use it mainly for home deffense...every time I take it to the range everyone around me wants to know what it is I'm shooting and where can they get one. It's fun to shoot, quite reliable and you can switch between hand gun and carbine by just changing the upper.

Did you happen to read their disclaimer???"Legal Alert: This product is for sale to California dealers under limited conditions only. Although the product of itself is legal, the resulting combination with a pistol frame becomes illegal under California law. Please contact Mech-Tech for details relative to dealer sales in CA.

Yes, I read it. Once you combine the pistol with the Conversion Unit then it becomes illegal. however, it is not illegal to own one, it is illegal to fire one. I have taken this baby to the range any number times with out a single problem. Only once the range master asked me anything about it, and it was how long is the barrel (16.25"), how much did it cost you, and how long did you wait for it. Transportation wise, I keep them separate to avoid problems if pull over by the police.A friend of mine is an Investigator for the San jose City DA. I showed it to her and we went over the California Code. He told me that I can most defenetly use it for home deffence without a problem. As long as I don't go around displaying it in public I should be Ok.

Could you possibly contradict yourself anymore? :signs1242cn: The law states that if it is assembled, whether being fired or not, it is illegal. Doesn't matter if it's in your home, your car, or the firing range. And is your friend a "he", a "she", or...both? :roflmao3[1]:
