    She’s ugly....but in a cool kinda way. What’s the chances of seeing wolverine stock these?

    Still want her lol! And considering it’s roughly the same cost as a Glock slide it’s pretty appealing (to me anyway)

    They work well. The bolt is hefty so it has an old world SMG feel rather than the lightweight carbines of today. They even run 10mm in blowback so go figure.

    Although I'm in agreement with the MechTech carbine, I seriously doubt that it'd be a big seller here in Canada.
    Being nothing more than an 'upper' for a Glock pistol, or a 'variant', it'd still be restricted.
    Cool product - yes.
    Stupid rules - yes.
    ON the other hand, there are other pistol cartridge carbines out there that'll accept Glock magazines and are NON-restricted and IMHO equally as cool.

    I don't know where you're getting your pricing, however it's incorrect that they're the cost of a glock slide assembly.
    You're looking at a personal project retail costs, @ a bit more than $750-800 canadian and usps for the unit, adding a stock of choice, and accessories (tax), to get to canada.

    My husband built me one, we both have some of these for glock and 1911's.
    They're a pretty decent carbine conversion upper kit.
    I've run deutsche 9x19mm NATO +p CBXX , punching through armor vest panels and plate out to @30m with 16" barrel.
    Though I had to have a buffer installed to soften the action.

    They weigh a bit, mine is @ 2.458 kg with feed block, alone, without sights or optics, not mounted on a frame, nor mag and ammo.

    I already have a PCC,plus the few that are in the pipeline as NR I’m also planning on getting at least one of,and restricted or not,for me at least,it makes no difference as I can pretty much only shoot at a range regardless unless I’m travelling hours away from home.

    As for pricing,the going rate for just a Glock slide that I’ve seen in Canada seems to be 800+ And that’s not including a barrel,so really I’d consider this a much better value.

    forgive me if i'm confused but uppers aren't firearms right? unless the government deems this to be a prohibited device it would be just like any other rifle upper and be unregulated.

    You are correct. It does, however, matter what lower it attaches to when you want to shoot it. If the lower receiver is deemed a restricted firearm, this upper then becomes a range only toy.
