    Plinking, small game gun, home defense and 9MM ammunition is on the shelves occasionally. :)

    As an SBR, it has potential. I never liked full-size pistol-caliber carbines, other than lever guns.

    I like the 33 round Glock Mag compatibility.

    MechTech is where it's at. I picked up a used 9mm model with the telescoping stock, threw a $90 red dot on it and it's great with the lower off my Glock 23. I like it so much that I'll probably be buying a dedicated compact lower for it off Gunbroker soon.

    Is this the Oregon produced rifle? In 10mm it would have serious potential. I would prefer a side folder but there are AR SF units out there as bolt-ons

    Thanks, I see that id does come in 10mm and can use a slide fire stock! mags may be an issue though.

    Exactly why I'd opt for the 9mm. Accepts 33 round Glock Mags.

    I have always wanted a pistol caliber carbine. The Beretta CX4 storms have gotten way too expensive! It's good to hear that there is another alternative on the market.

    Looks nicely made and the stock being on the same axis as the bore is a big advantage if using a SlideFire stock. A 2X optic on that PCC would really rock @ 200 yards!

    Yea!! Sounds like fun! Now, if I could reliably find ammunition, powder, primers and boolits! :)

    A 9mm Buffalo Bore 124 grain FMJ bullet at 1300 fps has about a 52 inch drop at 200 yards, and Buffalo Bore 147 grain at 1175 fps has about a 58 inch drop at 200 yards. Yup you seem to be right, at 200 yards 9mm drops like a rock, kinda like a motor trajectory.

    Does barrel length have any effect on bullet drop? I would think it would, but I am not that deep into shooting. I'm still on the "WoW, this is fun!" end of the game.

    between a pistol length and carbine length there is a big difference in velocity, hence bullet drop is less in the carbine

    So is the 1300 fps Hook is talking about pistol or carbine muzzle velocity?
