Are there any .45 caliber carbines being manufactured these days?

The Kriss Vector was originally designed in .45ACP, and you can purchase the carbine version instead of the pistol version.

Kriss uses Glock Mags.

Hipoint - uses their own mags.

I have an SBR'd Kriss and HK USC. The USC started life as a carbine, neat guns.




When in doubt, pinky out.

Kahr/Auto-Ordnance offers semiauto Thompson carbines.

There's also the JRC (Just Right Carbine), which uses Glock magazines. It's laid out like an AR15, but is not an AR.

An AR that uses Glock 21 mags (with the Kriss extensions) is probably your best bet. But there are other .45 ACP AR options too.

There are also .45 ACP AR lowers designed to take M3 "Grease Gun" magazines.

And Olympic Arms offers proprietary polymer .45 ACP magazines that work in standard AR15 lowers. For a time, they sold modified .45 Uzi mags that also worked in standard AR lowers, but they stopped offering those several years ago.

For pistol caliber ARs, ( especially .45 ACP ) I'd highly recommend checking this place out:

There is also the Aero Survival Rifle from TNW
http://www.tnwfirearms.com/pro...t-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx.htm
It takes Glock magazines. It is also available in 9mm, 40S&W, .357SIG, and 10mm.
My dad has a 9mm and likes it a lot

Although a different animal, Beretta still makes the CX4 in .45. I have one in 9mm and it is fun to shoot.

Do you know if there's a reason to prefer direct impingement over blowback, or vice versa?

I'm the wrong guy to ask.

Rudy at Macon Armory can readily explain the technical aspects of both methods of operation and what the advantages/disadvantages are for each one.

Give him a call. While he's a very busy guy, I'm sure he'd be more than happy to discuss these things with you.

Mine is in .40 and I've shot many 1 hole groups at 25 yrds with it. Kick ass fun to shoot, but I seem to leave it home when going to the range of late. I'll have to change that.

For cheap fun there is always the High Point rifle. Butt-ugly, basic blow-back operation and often maligned, it is a .45 ACP carbine still being manufactured.

If you're looking for something short & handy with a 16" barrel...
This is my CX4 next to my 10.5" AR pistol.
Very handy inside a structure.

There are a couple of people who can take a Winchester 1873 and convert it to .45 ACP.

I'm having one made up for me so I can shoot Wild Bunch matches and use the same ammo in my rifle as I do in my 1911.
