Carbines that use Glock mags

This is a discussion on Carbines that use Glock mags within the Rifles forums, part of the Rifle & Shotgun Forum category; I got a Beretta CX4Storm. Light, accurate, dependable, 9mm. Depending on the model you order, it takes either glock, Beretta92, or Beretta PX4 mags....

My next purchase is going to be a .40 JRC; I'm going to opt for the M&P magwell though.

Well what do you know, Tom @ JRC called this morning. I could not believe it being I have sent so many emails and phone calls. It seems he is the man to contact, he told me

"get it all together and send it in, we will do all the upgrades and you will be happy when you get it back"

Now I am very curious about the "happy" part since I have been so disgusted since I have owned it (2012)

We'll see what happens, now I'm sitting on needles.

I'll weigh in with one more positive experience with kel tech sub2k. I have a gen 2 9mm - Glock mags. It's really a very good shooter. I have 4 of the 32 round Glock magazines for it; making it a really fun range and plinking gun. It's certainly not a collector's piece if you know what I mean. From a quality, fit and finish perspective it's maybe a little better than you might expect from KT. Months ago, I posted on one of the "if you only could take one gun" threads that the sub2k would be my one gun. Not the best at anything, but very good at a lot and clearly the most versatile. It's great to carry in a back pack. It's uglier than any other gun I own - so if looks matter to you, this is not your kind of gun. It's also relatively inexpensive to buy and shoot. If you haven't fired one, you should check them out.

Joe- thanks for your input on the Kel Tech. I have checked out the Gen2 and was all set to buy one until I read a couple of reviews that the cover screw on the rear frame is not really "screwed" in. It just sits there with some blue Loctite on it. Don't like that at all. I ended up that same day finding a Ruger Mk IV Target (blue) at the dealer where I was checking out the Kel Tech!

Op, hmmm wasn't aware of the non-screw screw. I'll check it out. Thanks. The Sub2k is not very conventional and not everyone's cup of tea. I'm satisfied with mine so far. It is what it is - versatile, folds in half and has worked every time (so far). It shoots pretty reliably - not a target gun but good out to about 75 yards with factory sights (my mileage - yours may vary). Anyway, I knew I wasn't buying a collectors' piece when I got it.

Since this photo was taken I've swapped out the grip for one a little less fat and added a red dot.
Waveform,

That's an awesome build. I like it a lot. So I hope you don't mind me asking, what was your all-in cost?

Thanks. I honestly don't keep track of the cost of all the parts for these projects cause it always adds up to a lot more than I tell myself I'm gonna spend. I've never saved any money putting these things together that's for sure. But it is a lot more fun than just buying a rifle and shooting it.

The pistol caliber carbine stuff is more expensive than standard AR15 parts. I started with a blem PSA lower but that was about the only thing I bought on sale except the Glock mags. The upper is Spartan and has a side charging handle which I thought was different and kinda cool. The comp, barrel, buffer kit and handguard were all Kaw Valley Precision, BCG is from New Frontier Armory, LPK is WMD. The buttstock is from Mission First Tactical, sights are Magpul. The finish is Cerakote Titanium.

Looking back at the invoices it seems I have about $1200 tied up in this carbine (gulp). A lot of money but it's also a lot of fun to assemble and uniquely mine. Not a cheap date for sure.

Thanks for the info. Wanted to see if it would save me money vs the CZ Scorpion carbine I am looking at.
