    Cool pistol carbine conversion kit

    i don't really get the whole folding rifle = handgun thing for OC at all. seems too bulky and attention whoring to me to carry and would take waaaay too long to draw and fire in exigent circumstances. maybe if that's all you had and were waiting to buy a handgun but i saw this in shotgun news and was fascinated.

    http://ema.plutog.co.il/viewProduct....=267&catID=376

    whole gear to wrap around your handgun and all kinds of accessories like a barbie doll. ad says it converts in 10 seconds and no pistol disassembly required. once again not practical for OC but still frickin' cool. it wouldn't add any power or velocity to your shots but an innovative concept. thought i would share.

    ps - if anybody bags on me for not being directly OC related - i am OC in front of the computer right now.

    That kit looks pretty sweet. I wish they made more add ons for the M&P's.

    Thumbs up Sweet!!!!

    That is one BAD A$$ Glock Toy. I personally don't have a need for it but it would make a great "one gun Pistol/Carbine" option for someone that diddn't have the $1000.00 handy to grab an AR15.

    And I am fairly certain it is illegal in MI as it would be considered an SBR.
    Anything I post may be my opinion and not the law... you are responsible to do your own verification.

    Blackstone (1753-1765) maintains that "the law holds that it is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer."

    There is always Mechtech and their uppers for handguns http://www.mechtechsys.com/ .

    Keep in mind that the ATF as of last year holds that once a handgun is made into a rifle, it requires a form 1 to go back to its original configuration.

    Those are neat and all, but I think I would rather get 2 separate pieces so I have a dedicated pistol and SBR that use the same ammo:

    Ah yes.. the PS90...

    I rented one of those once; got a free gun rental from the paper.

    It's by far the most fun firearm I've fired in my 10+ years of shooting. The only gun I think that might be able to compete with the unique characteristics of the PS90 would be the Kel-Tec RFB.

    Unsure

    Not really sure how I feel about this.

    You can get a Kel-Tec sub2000 that takes glock mags for the same price, and it has more barrel length.

    I was considering the pistol (5.7), but it looks too toy like, and I really dont care for the trigger. It was either the 5.7, or the Kimber in my avatar, because of the trigger, Im going with the Kimber.

    Yes, the Sub 2000. Folds down to 16X9 inches. 16 inch barrel. AND you can use the 33 round Glock mags.
