    I believe that your cheapest option is going to be one of the Tommy Gun reproductions by Auto Ordinance.

    The Kriss rifles are really nice, but expensive.

    Marlin used to make a Camp rifle in .45, but it has been discontinued for years.

    Hi Point, MasterPiece Arms, H&K USC, Kriss. If you search on the Internet I you might be able to find more.

    Check out the MasterPiece Arms carbine rifle in .45 Auto which has a magazine capacity of 30 rounds. Another option is the Hi-Point .45 Carbine ($300.00) but it has a 9 round mag.

    No, they only have 8 round mags.
    I have one and love the gun but it has a low round count in the mag.

    Back when I followed the CX4 talk on the Beretta forum there was a good bit of chatter about extended mags for the .45 acp CX4. I think there were some successful extended mag conversions discussed.

    This is an area of the market that is sorely lacking. I'm not sure why none of the big boy manufactures have not taken this ball and ran with it. Besides Beretta, there is nobody making a good quality PCC anymore. KelTec is hit and miss and leaves a little to be desired in the quality department (Not to mention spotty availability), and the Beretta is nice, high quality but a little restricting and pricey. I miss the Ruger and Marlin carbines.

    Olympic makes a decent .45acp AR carbine that runs with M3 (Grease Gun) mags.

    My buddy had one that I wish I'd bought off him when he wanted to get rid of it; decent enough, ran fine, accurate.

    I was reading in "American Rifleman" that Taurus (I know, I know) is coming out with some carbines in pistol calibers.

    YouTube - Taurus CT G2 Carbine 9mm, .40 & .45

    Another option (and perhaps the most versatile one) - put a stock on a Glock (price is right, too):

    I also considered the Beretta Storm but in .40 which provides a 14-round mag. Still, it's a pricy meatball and I have other things' on my gotta have list.

    I'd be a little leery on that stock for the Glocks, as far as legality is involved. IIRC, you can not attach a buttstock to a pistol, and have it legally still be a pistol.

    I agree that a good .45ACP carbine is needed in the market.

    Seems you need to do the $200 tax stamp, assuming it is legal in your state.
