    yes, i know i know. it's a piece of shit and ugly as sin. oh well. 100 dollars face to face for one new in box is too good to pass up. i just want something to shoot 9mm with.
    it's a camo version, which i don't mind

    yea, they're fuckin terribly ugly, i know, i'm not gonna lie. but 100 bucks for a 9mm carbine is a good deal, and especially if they're decently reliable like Krott says.

    An old friend used to have one. Shot it many times and saw it being shot even more. It's been quite some time, but looking back, I don't recall the gun ever having even the slightest hiccup.

    $100 for a bulletproof carbine ain't too bad.

    hmm, i'm having second thoughts. he wants 110 FTF, and i'd have to drive 20 minutes out of my way. i'd like a 9mm carbine, but i'm not sure... 110 dollars could buy a lot of 10/22 parts...

    yea, i'll probably bluff w/ him for a little bit at first, but if he stays strong i'll pay 110.

    10 an 15 round mags.

    My Dad picked one of those carbines up at a gunshow with a reddot on it. We've shot mostly WWB through it, and that thing has never had a single FTF. Definately VERY reliable (and ugly).

    may be the ugliest gun i've ever seen, but it's a good deal if you just want somethin to shoot 9mm

    If nothing else, it'll be worth a few more bucks in the future if you never use it.

    even at $110 it's worth it. We have a few out here that own both the 9 and the 40. they shoot anything you can put in them and pretty damn accurate.

    Best part is, when you run out of ammo, they make good clubs.

    those who've shot them before, are they at least semi-accurate?

    alright guys, i'm headin over to pick it up now with 110 dollars in pocket. i don't think u can easily change the camo stock, since that part looks to be 1 piece and is probably considered the lower receiver. oh well! i'll get pics up later today.
