    After today, it's all historical.

    Interesting. But, I'd be more interested if it were .45 Auto.

    Glad to see them bringing that back, and surprised to see the mag selection available for it!

    Not a fan of its looks but the original was no beauty either. That being said I'm interested especially with the Glock mag compatibility.

    Agreed ! We used to call something looking like that "butt ugly".

    I've already seen pre-orders for as low as $520 shipped.

    With the current state of the gun business I'd bet it'll be cheaper by next Christmas.

    I definitely want one of these. Put the charging handle on the left side, get some Glock 33 round mags, maybe throw a red dot on it, and you should have a nice little SMG stand-in. Would be nice if it weighed a pound less, but maybe they'll come out with a lightweight version eventually to hopefully bring it down to at least M1 carbine weight. Otherwise I love the feature set, and if you're going to have a meaty barrel I do like the fluted profile they went with.

    I too would be interested in that. Hopefully they come out with one.

    I'd rather go 9 mm AR pistol with a brace. Would fit in a vehicle better.

    I'm trying to decide if I want/need one. I, already, have a Hi-Point 9mm., a Chiappa M1-9, and a Kel-Tec SU-2000.

    Don't know if I can justify getting another 9mm. carbine.

    May pass on this one....

    I wasn't too interested until I found out about the Glock mags.

    The Kel-Tec SU-2000 uses Glock mags, too.

    Not a fan of the Sub2k. First one was a pile of shit, second was gen 2, but I just did not care for it.
