They're out of business, and the Pro-Ord carbines and pistols are rather prone to jams. To bad such a good concept was so poorly executed.

I think Savage and Thompson Center both make single shot .223 pistols. They're not semi-auto if that is what you're looking for.

Olympic Arms makes one called the OA-98 the following is a descripton from their website http:www.olyarms.com
The ONLY AR-style pistol using aluminum forgings, and all metal parts (except for the pistol grip) that has a removable magazine. The )A-98 is able to use any mil-spec AR-style mag. All weight has been removed in non-critical areas to ensure safety and strength.
All lower parts are standard AR-style parts, and are interchangeable with other standard GI (non-Colt's) parts. The upper is a modified component that contains the famous OA-series recoil system that eliminates the need for a buffer tube or standard recoil system of any type. There is virtually no recoil due to the gas-op OA style system, but it still packs the punch of the .223 Remington centerfire rifle cartridge. If you have any questions, please e-mail our info line. Features include:
Button cut light barrel, 6.5" OAL, 1x9" twist
No buffer tube
Uses standard AR lower parts and bolt
Weight: 48 oz
Length: 15 3/4"
Check out the picture of it.

I have one, there a lot of fun to shoot. Very loud and a big fireball, most impressive at night. No spare parts, so be forewarned.
