Looking for a pistol caliber rifle

Anyone have any sugestions?
Thinking of something in 9mm 40 or 45. Most likely 9mm just due to the cost of ammo. It will just be for fun at the range and such. I donít really want anything with a real short stock or too Rambo ambush looking. Wooden stock would be a huge plus.

I don’t own one but this seems like one of the few that would meet your requirements. I don’t know if this is a good price.

I kinda like this CZ but I know it’s not what your looking for.

There are a number of pistol caliber lever guns, from makers such as Henry and Marlin. A trip to a well stocked local gun shop may help with form, fit and function. There are lot's of options out there.

I've always had in the back of my mind that I wanted a Marlin .38/357. Maybe one day...

I have Henry Rifles in the rack and they offer a good selection of handgun ammo models. They also have great customer support.

That's a good looking rifle. Short stroke piston? Blowback?

I got a CZ Scorpion Carbine last week. It will eat up someammo. A hoot to shoot he he. With the stock folded out, it is about the same length as an M4. CZ makes some great guns. It is nice to have.

What's your pleasure? Semi-auto, Bolt action, Lever action?
Pretty good selection, wooden stock narrows it down some but I'm with you I like wooden stock better myself.
I've always wanted a rifle for each pistol caliber I own. Still on the list lever action .38/357mag, .44spl/.44mag.

I'm digging on the looks of that Chiappa M1 9mm... Anyone actually own one? Interested in quality and function. Seems like a reasonable price. How many rounds in magazine? Which magazines work in rifle? Only Chiappa? Price of mags?
