Love the looks of the Ruger. I always like the old Deerstalker 44mags and this reminds me of them.

That Taurus is just plain butt ugly. Even Hi-Points have nicer looks over this thing.

I 2nd the Hi-Point...I have one in 9mm, and .40. They are accurate, and super reliable. Takedown is very easy if you watch the you-tube vid (instructions that come with the gun, not so great) Tons of fun..They are very popular with the Girls at work, when they come out to the farm. Love both of mine..

There is the MechTech which is an upper that fits onto your Glock, 1911, and a couple others. It is available in multiple calibers. It seems a bit pricey considering that you have to provide your own lower (pistol) but your magazines are a 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.
Meh. I have one in 40. I bought it mainly to go with the 96A1 that I already had. If I had to do it, I'd think harder. For a $700+ gun, it's lacking a few things. WAY too much plastic. Trigger linkage parts make the trigger feel spongy. But, for $300=, you can replace all those parts, and get something Beretta should have provided to begin with. And, as always with Beretta, the parts availability to switch mag types is so-so at best. If the thing was $500 new, my tune would be different.

I think Olympic Arms still makes a .40 S&W AR.

I had a Ruger police carbine and found that it would not shoot aluminum cased ammo, (blazers). I experienced case separation leaving a ring in the chamber and jamming the gun. I also had one in 9mm that did not have that problem. My theory is that the slight taper of the 9mm was enough to prevent separation. I saw other references to the same thing while searching the web. Other than that
I found the PC40 to be a fine carbine in every other respect.

Beretta. Light, short, handy and reliable.
