    If you're looking for a pistol caliber carbine, have you considered a 9 MM, AR-15 Carbine? I purchased this Rock River LAR-9, 9 MM Carbine a couple of years ago, and it accomplishes that goal nicely. With +P ammunition it delivers the maximum velocity one could expect from the 9 MM cartridge. Around 300 FPS more in any given load. It is also machined from solid as a dedicated 9 MM lower. Instead of having the block pressed into the magazine well like Colt and several others do. This gun is really fun to shoot, and is a lot cheaper to keep fed than the same thing in .223. Recoil, velocity, and power are surprisingly substantial for a 9 MM out of an AR platform weapon.

    Yet another good choice would be one of the AK type pistols. It will give you a little more thump with the 7.62 X 39 MM round, and the ammo is still very affordable. This milled receiver Bulgarian Arsenal model runs well, and is very controllable. Now you can install one of those Sig Braces on it, and they substitute pretty well as a shoulder stock without all of the expense and red tape of a SBR.

    Do you have one of your 1911s registered as an SBR? Installing a shoulder stock on a pistol/firearm with a barrel less than 16" is building a short barreled rifle. Mearly owning the components needed to assemble an SBR without having a legal SBR to install them onto is a violation of the law. Once you have a registered SBR 1911 frame, you can legally posess a shoulder stock accessory for a 1911. Don't get caught with it on a non-registered SBR though.

    Same type of logic goes for ARs. If you have an AR pistol receiver, you can own a short barreled upper. If you only own rifle lower receivers, you are in violation of the law.

    From: https://www.atf.gov/firearms/faq/nat...-firearms.html

    Q: If a person has a pistol and an attachable shoulder stock, does this constitute possession of an NFA firearm?

    Yes, unless the barrel of the pistol is at least 16 inches in length (and the overall length of the firearm with stock attached is at least 26 inches). However, certain stocked handguns, such as original semiautomatic Mauser “Broomhandles” and Lugers, have been removed from the purview of the NFA as collectors’ items.

    [26 U.S.C. 5845, 27 CFR 479.11]
    Q: What can happen to someone who has an NFA firearm which is not registered to him?

    Violators may be fined not more than $250,000, and imprisoned not more than 10 years, or both. In addition, any vessel, vehicle or aircraft used to transport, conceal or possess an unregistered NFA firearm is subject to seizure and forfeiture, as is the weapon itself.

    The MechTech carbine conversion is a 16" upper that converts a pistol to a rifle. It is totally legal and doesn't require any paperwork as the upper itself is not a firearm. It is also totally legal to convert the rifle back to a pistol without creating an SBR. This is why they are backordered to the point that MechTech is not taking any orders.

    That looks like something that came from the Plumbing Dept. at Home Depot.

    My appologies. I was not familiar with that particular kit.
