    Anybody have any info or sources for 9mm carbine kits? is a receiver/feed ramp the only additional hardware needed?
    I always wanted one, just started looking into them. would prefer wood stock or both including folding steel if legal.
    thanks!

    That sarco kit is a 10.5 barrel with stock. Makes it an SBR if completed, right?
    I think numrich has kits also.
    What is required to complete one? Receiver? Somebody in another thread mentioned welding? I can do that if mig is all it needs.

    I'm told that the receivers have been torch-cut, so welding would be required.
    Might consider TIG welding if available ;) Not sure if it requires any heat-treatment afterwards ??
    I've never done one myself, so my knowledge is limited.

    To make it legal as a rifle you could build a mock suppressor out of tube and weld it to the barrel to make it 16"

    As a former Uzi owner, just a heads up. Uzis were created as submachine guns. They are amongst the best submachine guns ever made and are a blast to shoot in FA. Being in California, we cannot SBR modern guns or have the folding stock so, I was stuck with a wooden stocked, 11lb, semi auto carbine with a 16" barrel and a bullet button. Neutered to the point of uselessness by ridiculous, pointless gun laws. I shot it once and sold it. In a free state, if you can have the folding stock and the 10.5" barrel by SBRing it, they are okay. But even though, it's hard to get excited by a machine gun that has been neutered to only shoot semi-auto. And they are really heavy. Fun for new shooters and those who are recoil averse though but for most of us, meh, not fun to shoot.

    Building one could be a fun project but just wanted to give you my impressions having owned one.

    Thanks, only time I ever shot one was years ago. It was FA with wood stock and very controllable. pleasant and fun to shoot. I can SBR here but I'm not sure it's worth it either the more I look into it.
