    Am I the only guy in the world who would love to see an M1 carbine in 10mm?
    Don't want an AR style, a mini 14 or deerslayer would be a nice platform but I'd really like one in the M1 platform.

    Wait just little while. Iver Johnson has had a 9mm version out since 1985, and I just read where Citadel Arms (Legacy) is releasing a M-1 Carbine in 9mm this year. It shouldn't be too long before a 10mm follows.

    Did a search for Iver Johnson and came up with nothing. Are they still in business?

    I've been clawing through the net for tha last several weeks for information about. 10mil carbine. Not a lot out there.

    Mech tech was mentioned. Goid solid platform. But by the time you build up a serviceable rifle, you're in it close to a grand. Toss in a new glock lower and you're over that. Way beyond the $365.00 base price.

    Olympic arms makes a 10mm . Price is high and I can't get much info on it. Website isn't very informative I've got a call into them for a spec sheet and brochure..

    Feather industries makes one but they have the worst website I've ever seen. This is exactly the one I want. But any info, reviews, opinions are non existant. I want it pretty bad but not sure I want th throw a grand into a black void and hope for the best.

    If you find a decently rugged 10mil let me know.

    That break down feather if literally keeping me awake at night.

    Could a competent gunsmith convert an existing M1 Carbine to 10mm? Would it be worth it?

    I am not a gunsmith but

    even if it could be done I doubt that it would be worth the cost. I would think that the old Ruger 44 mag carbine might be a better base gun for such a project but I am sure that it would be a pretty expensive project at that.

    also

    check out the guys on youtube who turned a 40 S&W Hi-Point into a 10 mm. It worked for them. I was also thinking about a a 10mm carbine and think that the Mec-Tech might be the way to go.

    This would be a very fun carbine. Do you have link to an online article?

    I want a 9mm carbine, but none of the options really do it for me, except an AR. However, 9mm AR's are too expensive for a plinker. IMHO.

    These guys went ahead and turned it into a carbine.

    Looks like a fun project for a guy who likes tinkering with guns.

    Back when Ruger was making their PC carbines, I had hoped they would make on in 10mm. But it never happened. I all ways wondered if you could convert one of the PC 40 carbines to 10mm. I would want one that used a 15 to 20 round mag. I would be in just for grins.

    A Mec-Tech for a Glock 20 would use Glock 15 rounders, or you could easily add the two rd extension to the 15's for 17.
