    Has anyone seen the new Citadel M1? Chambered for 9mm, wood or synthetic stock, 10 rd Beretta 92 fs mags (2included). MSRP just shy of $650.
    What do you think? Is it worth having?
    Legacy Sports has them.

    Played with a buddy's Marlin Camp carbine, and some loads with slower powder. Got some rounds up over 1600 fps, and saw some good penetration increases with heavier bullets.

    Don't know how significant it would be in a practical sense, but gets it close to .357 mag range in comparable bullet weight/velocity.

    I think it would be fun. Any pistol caliber carbine would be fun. I want one of some sort in the future.

    I have a Citadel 1911. It is a very reliable gun. It is not fancy. But even though I have bought a more expensive 1911 to replace it, I just can't bring myself to sell it. I would take a closer look at that M1. I think it is cool looking with the wooden furniture on it.

    Maybe if it was chambered in something other than 9mm NATO or .22LR, maybe a 5.7x28.................

    I have a 9mm AR that a couple of members here have shot. It is a hoot to shoot. With a max load of Blue Dot 115's top 1600 fps and 124's push 1550

    The UZI based mags are reliable and easy to come by. Promag actually makes a darn good mag for these.

    Haven't seen the 9x19mm version, I've seen and handled their .22LR version though.

    YES!! And I have seen it listed for $529. Being a 9 guy, and My Dad having had one in Germany in 1949 and the first part of his Korean vacation, I def. Want one. Robo: I have The RRA 9MM-AR. Love it, but hardly shoot it because A) it's in the Bug out bag,..and B) I can Burn 300 rounds without realizing it!!:)

    I know some of the 22's and 30 Carbine versions were recalled in late 2011 and early 2012....

    Trust me,. It is. But after I blew through a 250 box of Remington UMC Ball,.. I said to myself( I said SELF) easy does it now,..were in an Ammo shortage,.
    Otherwise I'd have 3 digits worth of Ammo instead of 4......

    Looks like a great companion carbine to the 92FS.

    I'm willing to bet the increased MV of the longer

    barrel probably gives it 100 yard range.

    I was just going to ask what the effective range might be. :)

    Well,..some 9MM's have a "shorter" (Sry brain cluster) BARREL, like Box guns(M-10 & M-11's, and the MPA's) ...

    Hickok45's proven he can hit the gong on his range at 80 yds with a Glock 26. Might not be very effective but he's done it.

    Two of my favorite things: 9MM and Carbines. It's like Reece's Peanutbutter cups....

    Assuming it performs similar to my Ruger PC9, I have good shot accuracy and groupings at 100 yards....

    I can't speak to the price of the rifle, but I see no reason not to get it. Less expensive than CX4 about the same as a conversion kit and 9 mm upper for your AR.

    Everyone should have a Pistol Caliber Carbine (PCC) to shoot just for fun.

    A Hi-Point 995ts might be a bit less expensive, but heavier and not as classic as the M-1.

    My choice was the 4095TS in 40 S&W and that too is fun to shoot.

    I wouldn't mind it( the Hi Point carbine) if it had height cap mags (the 9MM) are only 10 or Aftermarket 15's

    The 9 mm carbine is a handy rifle, especially for women. The 9mm carbine is not intimidating to new shooters and it is much more capable than a 22 LR. I would not feel outgunned if I was defending my home with a 9mm carbine.
