    No Ruger bashing here. Although it does look like they tried to do a "Lets beat Hipoint Carbines for Ugly" contest.

    Price is my sticking point.

    http://www.southernohiogun.com/longg...t-carbine.html

    Yes I could buy two Hipoints for the same money.

    True the ruger does take down for easy packing.
    True the ruger does have mag well inserts and glock mags. Which IMO is the only thing that justify's that price point.

    So it comes down to personal preference.

    My preference is I like saving money and I like my Hipoints.

    Now if they had one in .38 special I might be tempted.

    Winelover - There are 20 and 30 round magazines available for the Beretta CX4 Storm carbine.

    I have a Storm and it's a great firearm. I went to the range with a friend one day. He had a Just Right cafrbine and I had my Storm. I let him shoot the Storm. The next day he sold the Just Right and ordered a Storm.

    For what the gun is meant to do, pretty isn’t that important to me. But reliability is paramount.
    If it has a halfway decent trigger, I am interested and $525 street price is what I pay for a Glock. Seems like a fair price to me.

    If it shoulders right, I will likely buy one. Nice self defence carbine and a fun plinker with cheap brass. With about the same performance as a .357 from a revolver, it would be able to take deer at 50 yards or so.

    For SHTF, having the same magazines as the Glock is an advantage.

    I'm neither for or against Ruger. I buy what makes since to me regardless of who makes it. I have a Hi Point 9mm carbine that has been a decent truck gun for the farm. Certainly no Range Queen but it does what it was designed to do. I hope Ruger does well with its new offering and look forward to seeing it in other calibers. It seems to me that Taurus tried a Carbine a few years ago that died a quick and ugly death. Maybe Ruger will go better.

    Interested to see what's going to happen to the price of Ruger Police Carbines. They've been selling for $700.00+ for a long time now.

    That's a good thought, hope they drop back down in price to.

    I've never cared for a 9mm. But if Ruger decides to make one in a 45 ACP that takes 1911 mags, I'll be getting one.

    For the difference in price I'll keep my Hi Point that has eaten every type of ammo I have fed it especially 105 swc. It also looks every bit as good as that Ruger does.

    It's as good looking as a mass produced/plastic stock rifle can be. I *think* the poor serfs in the Stalinist kingdoms of CA, NY, and NJ might be able to buy the version without the threaded muzzle so that is a plus. Hopefully the commies won't notice and ban them. Kudos to Ruger for giving it real sights and not just the picatinny rail. I've already started a secret savings account in my desk at work!

    I like it. But I'd rather have it in .40 S&W, or .45ACP.
    I have a Taurus CT40, its a great carbine, although a little on the big side.

    I see the Camp 9's are much maligned here but I love mine . Heavy ..adding to bench accuracy and mine has been unfailing with no problems at all . I keep hearing the buffer needs be replaced but after years of use I can't justify replacement . Camp 9 is wood and steel , a more 'traditional' rifle and I shoot it more than any other for plinking ..it's cheap to shoot .

    Some want the more 'space age' carbines and that's great ! But I'll defend the Camp 9 .

    I must admit to a time when I bought a couple of guns because of their looks(Diana grade Browning Broadway). That was a long time ago and I value function more than looks now.
    I will wait until I see some user reviews and make my decision then.

    Give us an inch and we want a mile
    Like Loyd I think a 10mm would be real interesting.

    9mm is just fine with me. Shouldn't be any special trick to squirt a Lee 358-125-RF out at 1500 fps or so, faster than most .357 revolver boolits. Modest powder charges and endless buffet of free range brass to feed it from Glock mags and we have a winner!

    If I can get one for 450, ill take it. I have 18 Glock mags laying around for a G19 and G17 and have had the itch to build a PSA AR9. But a takedown 9mm rifle with good irons and Glock compatibility AND the ability to take it to the LGS if something goes wrong for warranty work is a no brainer for me. I want.

    They were smart. They made it so that it takes Glock mags. Look wise, I've seen 9mm carbines that looks much worse. I'd buy it for the right price (under $400).
