Todays Photo Of The Day includes some rare carbines. From the most modern to old-school.

From top to bottom we have:

Swiss B&T APC-9 in 9×19 mm, with collapsible stock and Aimpoint H-2 in a Spuhr mount. This is the most modern design.

Turkish MKE T-94 “MP5”, with – and without – Aimpoint. The muzzle brake is made by the owner. This design is over 50 years old.

Swedish Carl Gustav m/45, called “Kulsprutepistol m/45 (Kpist m/45)”, in 9×19mm. This one is fully automatic. It was designed in 1944 and was used (for instance) by the Swedish Army and National Guard until 2007.

At the lower end, we find a Thompson Submachine Gun, Caliber .45 ACP,

This is a real Chicago typewriter, Modell M1928, made in 1942. Semi-auto only, but comes with a drum magazine as well.  A word of advice is to avoid gripping anywhere near the barrel once you have emptied a magazine, don’t ask me how I know.

Which one is your favorite? Are you a modern guy or would you rather go for classical?

I bet everyone will go for the fully automatic M/45…

      According to the overlords they be SBR’s, but yeah. Ain’t no carbine.

    If one wants to be authentic when firing the Swedish K one should make sure to use Swedish m/39B ammunition; a led cored, steel jacked and tombac plated bullet weighting 109 grains traveling at 1300 fps will do some damage. The m/39B is also the reason that the Swedish armed forces ended up with Glocks.

      Just love my M-45 “King Karl”. Fortunate to have an original, not a tube gun.
      Have had it for 25+ years now. Have quite a few sub guns,but this is my gun of choice.
      Controllable, stone reliable.
      And I do load some stout loads that are similar to the m-39B round.

    One plus for the Thompson is that if you’re out of ammo you can just club the enemy to death with the sheer weight of the thing.

    This could really be improved by the addition of a Mini-Uzi SMG

  • Henrik Bergdahl

    That shooting range need (more) pistol caliber carbine competitions 😉

  • Sianmink

    Forget the rest, I really want to fire a Swedish-K one day.

  • Gun Fu Guru

    They look like crime scene guns.
