    I slightly remember a carbine that I owned many, many years ago. Haven't seen one for years and was beginning to wonder if it was a dream. And then I found this article. The carbine that I had was chambered for the 9X19 Parabellum.
    Has anyone else ever seen one of them?? It was a neat little rifle but was somewhat crudely built.

    I remember those for sale in Shotgun News but never actually saw one. How did it shoot?

    As I recall, it shot pretty wall. That was about 40 years ago. I do remember that it looked to be cheaply made with poor machining, cheap wood and loose tolerances. But it was fun to plink with.

    I remember them in Shotgun News as well....plus I've seen a couple thru out the years at gun shows. My interest in military stuff has waned over the years. Back when I was into it...if it wasn't Swedish, Czech or German I didn't give it a second look. I should have applied those same standards to dating. :D
