Default glock and 1911 lowers used for a carbine upper.
Anyone ever seen or have any experience with this conversion?
No FFL is required to purchase these tactical carbine uppers as the Glock or 1911 lowers are used.

It looks like the answer I'm looking as far as a tactical carbine round availability goes.
I already have a good all round long distance carbine and have been looking to get an AR but dont like the idea of buying another round.
I have a 1911 and thought this setup was nice for tactical and practicality.
Havent yet read much about it as I just seen this conversion in shotgun news.
Price looks good.

After getting a chance to go to the forum some owners of this say their AR's are collecting some dust and losing their sights to put on the CCU
One guy said this set up is now his "Go to" gun over a 556.
And these are highly accurate from some testimonials I've read.

Pretty cool stuff.

I would just stop at step 2.

Would that be legal?

step 2 looks like a stormtrooper gun from star wars.

The problem is you still just have an anemic pistol round with a few more fps because of a longer barrel. Just because you put a longer barrel on a pistol a rifle this does not make. It would be fun to have or for someone small or very weak. As a go to gun, if rifle caliber firearms are available, this is a no go.

Like I said I have a long range rifle. I dont want to buy loads of a different round like a 223 for a light weight tactical gun.
I'm looking for something like this in a SHTF get out of dodge in a quick hurry.

Its really just a modern day tactical semi auto Tommy gun having no FFL paper trail.

That is a decent option if you have a 1911. If you had a glock though I don't really think that it is worth it. You can buy a keltec sub 2000 that takes the same mags as your glock for less money than that upper....and you still have a fully functioning side arm instead of one in parts.

^This

For a model with a fixed stock, you're at an OAL of 32-33 inches. Why not consider getting a draco AK, or even just a yugo underfolder, which will give you a short OAL than this thing, WITH a stock AND a much more powerfull round.

Realy though, if pistol cal carbines are what you want, look at the kel tec, as BC stated, especialy if you have a glock.

Now all they need is a drum for a 1911.
