I saw a thread on the forum that showed a 45 ACP carbine based on a Mauser surplus rifle. I've thought in the past this would be a fun piece to play with. There are 45 ACP semi-auto carbines out there, but I hate chasing my brass so this seemed like a good idea. I had an action around and an old stock that was the survivor of a plan gone bad. I added a piece of mahogany to the tip to lengthen the stock and here it is. A few forum members may recognize the stock. A word of caution on the Rhineland kit; it is a pretty good kit but it isn't quite a drop in thing as they would lead one to believe.
I've still got to get some sights installed but it has come together to my satisfaction.
