    Not many carbine type rifles...

    I've been searching for the perfect backpack gun and haven't came up with much...

    Needs to be fairly light and under 600-700...

    The keltec sub2000 in 40cal is about all i've came up with, priced decent too...i've owned 4 of these now but don't have warm squishy feelings about calling these reliable just yet.

    Am I missing another gun? or should I try to make the best of what I have

    A Marlin .44 or .357 lever gun?

    A Savage bolt action carbine?

    Heck--a Moisin-Nagant M38 or M44...

    ...can you find an old Marlin Camp Carbine in 9 or 45 or a Ruger Police Carbine in 9mm or 40...both are scarce...

    ...if you can bump the $$ up a bit, Beretta Storm Carbines are nice...

    There are a fair number of carbines on the market.

    What excetly are you looking for as far as caliber, action type, and weight.

    Are you looking for a pistol caliber carbine specifically?

    At this point I'd do anything, 9mm, 45,40, 556, 762x39...I'd like a pistol caliber.

    Semi auto would be nice, I've looked at the Chiappa pack rifle (22lr) but not a huge fan of single shot 22's

    ...please ship them to my FFL in my name immediately, I haven't seen one in over 5 years...let my Marlin 9mm go and haven't bought the Beretta Storm Carbine in .45 yet...it WILL fit my backpack...I'm an old Marine and the only backpack I've ever owned is a big green seabag
    ...you've got some nice carbines!!!

    ...don't know a brand offhand but we ordered for someone once a .556 pistol...it was pretty short...I don't remember the price but it was almost 10 years ago...seemed like it was about 16"...

    ...I've read that there are still available the recoil buffer pads (aftermarket) that will preserve them...the 9 I had didn't have one...

    From marlin? I've seen one used 9mm and it was beaten and 600 bucks!
    I haven't put a buffer in mine yet, guess I better read up on that.

    How about a Ruger 10/22 Takedown.

    Just picked one up for my kid. Great little gun, and at 4.5 lbs its easy on the back.

    The armalite AR-7 (Henry makes one too iirc) is designed so it can all be broken down and fit into the stock. Its a semi-auto .22

    Depending on your pack size something like a mini-14 with side folding stock, or a Hungarian AMD 65 might work. Both are fairly compact.

    The big issue is the SBT issue, but, you could go that route.
