I have always had a 9MM Carbine of some kind since I got my gun license. They are super fun to shoot, teach new shooters without much recoil, cheap to find 9mm ammo, plus you can share mags with some 9MM pistols. My current 9 Carbine is a Marlin Camp Carbine that I picked up used pre Covid for $650. I have a S&W 915 that takes the same mags,Have a 1997 Ruger carbine in 40cal that I've had for about 15 years,paid $500 for it at that time.

They are a sharp compact package, easily concealable. I like the Kel-Tec Dual tube KSG bullpup shotguns too, I think they're pretty sharp and have a place also, plus they can shoot 3" shells in a compact package. My pistol carbine is a Beretta CX-4. Its about 13 or 14 years old now and been a solid performer. It uses the same mags as my Beretta 90-Two .40.

When I was a young man my cousin had a 44mag Ruger based on the 10-22 design, I really wish I could get one of those.
Those are for sale used everywhere up here in the northeast as they were super popular deer hunting rifles years ago in NH, VT, &ME. They have a wood stock and did look like a 10/22. I think they had 2 versions ,1 with a tube feed and 1 with a 4 round magazine. I have admired them ,but I have no need for a 44 mag. If you search the gun sites ,I;m sure you'll find one online or at a cabelas somewhere?

Weren鈥檛 they called the 鈥渄eer slayer鈥 or something like that. If I recall, the early ones had a problem with firing out of battery. Pretty disasterous.

That Chiappa M1-9 looks interesting. I'll have to keep my eyes open for that one.

Everyone has memories of guns they should have bought when they had the chance, but didn't. One of mine is a Marlin Camp Carbine in 9x19. It was one of the early ones in 9mm, handled nicely, I don't recall what magazine it took except it was not a Glock as they are made now (I want to say it was for the Walther P-38 but I am probably wrong). But I checked it out and found the buffer, which looked like a thick white plastic washer, was partly melted, and that replacements for that part were difficult to impossible to find. So I passed on it. A couple of months later, I found a source for the buffer and trotted back to the gun shop, but someone more knowledgeable than I had glommed onto it and it was gone.

Next time I will trust my instincts and buy it first, and worry about replacing the worn part later.

The Marlin Camp 9 takes Smith&Wesson 5900/6900 series mags. The Camp 45 takes all Colt 45acp mags.
Sorry that you missed out on that Marlin. Parts are NOT an issue . Numrich has just about every part Marlin ever made for them! and buffers are available for sale everywhere, (Ebay, Amazon, MidwayUSA,Brownells, etc. ) and they only cost about $8. I have several in my parts bin and 16.5 lb springs from PowerCustom and Wolff gunsprings.

I was wanting the new version with the 4rd magazine because I wanted to see about making a adapter, if possible, to use IMI Desert Eagle magazines.

To tell you the truth, the Camp 45 would be my preference. You can always find M1911 and M1911A1 magazines.

I've got a Sub 2k and a Ruger PC carbine, both in 40 S&W. Both are great gun's, but I enjoy shooting the Sub 2k more than the Ruger. I have installed most of the MCARBO upgrade parts in the Sub 2k, as well as putting a Volquartzen trigger pack in the Ruger.

Sounds like you have a buy at a discount sell at a profit relationship brewing here.

here are pics of mine after it fired out of battery. it had a failure to feed, I turned it on its side to see the chamber and why the cartridge didn't feed. when I closed the bolt, it blew up in my face! I sent it back to Ruger who claimed it was from over pressure. you can clearly see from the pics that the chamber is open and the brass is only partially in the chamber.

like a dumbass, I wasn't wearing glasses and got a face full of burnt powder (H-110) luckily, no damage was done to my eyes!

to anyone who owns one of these excellent (in spite of my mis-hap) carbines; if you ever have a failure to feed jam, don't manually close the bolt on a live cartridge without first checking to see if the firing pin is stuck out! I believe this is what caused my slam fire.
