I know of the AR-15 types, Beretta, Kel-Tec, and Hi-point. Are there any other manufacturers?

Thanks.

It's been discontinued, but Ruger used to make a gun called the "Police Carbine". Came in both 9 and 40. Used the same magazines as their pistols.

You might could find one on the used market.

Just Right Carbine has some cool little rifles. http://www.justrightcarbines.com/

I have a friend that has 2 of the JRC carbines one 9mm one 40 smith. He and his wife love them. The 9mm and 40 both use widely available GLOCK mags.

How reliable are the Just Right Carbines? I do like that they take Glock mags.

There are carbine kits for the glock if you have a glock pistol already. you remove the slide and attach the glock lower to the carbine upper. but then your out a pistol. Here is the site http://www.mechtechsys.com/ I've heard good things about this particular manufacturer. It looks like they are not taking orders but maybe other places might have them in stock. The kits were around $300 a few years ago when i was looking into it.

Any reason why you didn't get it?

I decided to spend my money on an ak-47 instead. The AK just fit the need better. I'd still like to get one to carry in my backpack while hiking around and stuff. Nothing against them but I just opted for heavier firepower at that time.
Makes since to me though.

I heard of Mechtech sys sometime ago, but finding decent reviews about their products has been difficult. What little I have heard has been pretty favorable however.
