Longarms that use handgun magazines

Hey guys,

Trying to make a list of rifles/carbines that use handgun mags, can anyone name a few?

The Ruger police carbine utilizes the P series pistol magazines I believe.

Browning Buckmark rifle.

Just Right Carbine. (Several manufacturers use the same "Just Right" name for their version.)

Glock Carbine. (Don't think it's available yet, though.)

Thureon Defense Carbine.

Kriss Vector / 45 Carbine.

Hi-Point Carbine.


And, you can get into "what came first" territory, where calling something a pistol magazine, or a rifle magazine, is debatable...
AR rifles / AR pistols
UZI rifles / UZI pistols
Cobray rifles / Cobray pistols
And on... and on....

well there are the carbine kits that take pistol frames and turn them into carbines like the mechtech and RONI.

then there are the AR15s that take either glock or uzi mags

hi points use the same mag as their handguns.

beretta CX4 storms can use either PX4 or M92/96 mags(depending on model and caliber)

I personally have an enfield in 45ACP that uses 1911 mags.

that's all I got off the top of my head.

Which came first the chicken Or the egg? The Ruger charger pistol uses Ruger 10-22 mags.

I looked up that Glock Carbine. That could be interesting.

Lone Wolf Glock AR
DD Glock AR
JR Carbine
Thureon
DD gets the best reviews although it isn't cheap.
I'm working on one myself, but I am a long way from bringing it to market.

Are there any that use BHP magazines? I have a bunch of those, including some 20- and 30-rounders. The Keltec is available configured for just about everything but.

An old Inglis pistol with the removable buttstock doesn't count.

I think there is one. Manufactured by a foreign company decades ago and never imported en-mass. Of course, a few made it into the country. Probably not saving any money on using those HP mags though. I bet it goes for a small fortune given rarity in US.

Hi-point 995, 4095 & 4595 do as well as the Kel-Tec carbines (Glock mags)

I wanted us to adopt the Ruger PCC with red dot sight as a patrol rifle and explained to my boss it would be good for 50 yard head shots in hostage situations. He said, NYET.

Puts me in mind of the silenced DeLisle carbine.

That's one of the options we use . . . PC4 works great for us at that range.
