Default .40 Carbine options

I'm interested in a .40 carbine for some reason. The only options I have been able to find are hi point, beretta cx4, and Keltec sub 2000k. I really like the Keltec but availability is crap. Beretta looks like a space gun, and the hi point is well...a high point. Are there any other options out there?

JR, Taurus, AR15 uppers. Google 40 S&W carbines.

I like the Hipoint, mainly for the price

Rock River Arms makes a nice 40 and 9mm carbine. That's the way I would go.

You can trust Beretta on this one. The spacey molded stock is exceptionally comfortable, I have no doubt it contributes to accurate shooting. The fit and finish is also best of the bunch.

I have shot the Beretta in .45 and the Highpoint in .40. I also thought the Beretta was too futuristic but after shooting one I'm buying one in 9mm. The Beretta is a very quick take down where the Highpoint is a relatively complicated take down shoot before you buy if at all possible

I've been thinking about an emf jr carbine but I was looking at the 9mm they also have 40 though. The cool part for me is they use glock magazines which are easy to get and depending on where u live you can get 33 and 50 round mags.

Why? Most will be around the price of a AR-15 with the exception of Kel-Tec or Hi-Point. Just get yourself an AR-15 in 223/5.56.

With that said, don't diss the Hi-Point. It is very accurate, yes a bit big, but being a blow-back system with a spring recoil stock is very easy to shoot and has hardly any recoil. It is fun to shoot, easy to operate, uses inexpensive 40 S&W ammo (cheap for me I reload) and except for a gritty trigger (it will work itself out) is a good piece of machery. Price is half of the other options so you have extra cash for ammo. Customer service is great from this company and mags are only $18.00 apiece (so you can stock up on them without breaking the bank).


But it is your choice.
Jim

They will be hard to find, so when one comes along, jump on it.

CX4 storm is an amazing gun. Crazy accurate with just the factory sights with ergonomic feel.
