    Glock Carbine

    Anyone ever seen this before? Mech Tech Systems, Inc.

    Convert a Glock or 1911 style pistol into a Carbine for about $350. It replaces the slide/barrel on the pistol.

    Oddest thing I think I've ever seen, but I kinda like it a little.

    I think I would rather just have a keltec sub2000 and use my glock mags. That will probably come next year for us.

    edited: I guess it is already next year. So it will come later this year.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    looks good and different. but the price for a complete setup. it would go with the kel tec.

    My friend has one for a .45 1911. That round is really too slow to gain much benefit. I've got a Glock 31 in .357 Sig that I think would make a smoking carbine. It's already 1300 fps out of a 4" barrel with 147gr Gold Dots.

    They have been around for a long time now. They havent really proven themselves all that worthy for defense roles, but one might be fun to have just because.

    A couple of guys shot one at a recent IDPA match. I recall a few jams.

    +1 I think it would be fun to have, but a little too pricey for me.

    They're pretty cool. I'm from Kalispell, Montana where these conversion systems are made. I've visited the 'manufacturing' site of these and I'm pretty good friends with the inventors/makers son! They are fun to shoot, it just seems you could buy a whole different firearm for the price! Rumor has it, they're looking to make one for the XD-series of pistols. I don't know how far they've gotten on that track though!
    In a crisis you don't rise to the occasion but rather default to your level of training!

    Forgiveness is between them and God, it's my job to arrange the meeting!

    I own one. My Mech-Tech. I use it for tactical matches. Works fairly well.
