Anybody had some experience with one of these yet?  I'm pretty well invested in Glock handguns and the idea of having a little carbine that would use Glock mags is interesting to me.

I bought one for my wife (and me...) for Christmas after seeing a fellow run one to great effect in a local carbine match! Very fun, seems well made, and it's cheap to shoot.

I got the one with the conventional handguard, all of those slots seemed unnecessary for a light and Sig Romeo5 scope that we plan to add.

The recoil is about like a 10-22, the heavy fluted barrel seems to be more than enough to tame the "savage" recoil of the 9x19mm...

I recommend it!

Thanks, Azrial.  I agree, it seems a lot of the tactical stuff they hang on guns these days doesn't really seem necessary for a particular gun or a particular need, and in this case the fancy handguard and the adjustable stock seem a bit over the top for what I need.

I picked one of these up a year or so ago just for shitz and giggles. Fun little carbine. With a red dot mounted on the receiver I noticed a slight change in point of impact when removing and reinstalling the  barrel assembly. In going thru the parts box, I found a one piece Weaver base for a Marlin 336 matched the rear sight hole pattern. Now it holds a zero no matter how many times it's broken down for transport.
I also caught a sale on Magpul 20 round Glock mags. These are just long enough to use prone without banging on the ground.

I got one for one of my employees and he loves it.  It uses the pistol magazines like I have on my e-store so he hit my inventory for those.  My employee's get deal cost on guns and stuff so he went crazy on the mags.

He loves that carbine as it is a take down and lives under the seat of his truck with a quantity of magazines.   His is 9mm.

I would be interested if they come out with one in .45 ACP.  The cost of these is very reasonable considering they are take downs.   I have an AR-7 living in a storage compartment of my Durrango and would love to have a Take Down in .45 there instead.  Especially if it used 1911 mags.  If Ruger did offer one it would not take 1911 mags as it would take some type of Ruger Mag as they don't want to miss out on mag sales.  I would still get it.

I have one in 9 wearing a Vortex Crossfire RDS and it's a treat to shoot.  I bought it primarily for my 5'3" wife but she still likes her iron-sighted AR carbine better.  If they make one of these in 10mm Auto I'll be the first guy in line and this one will go down the road a heartbeat later...

10mm would really ruin a perps day and of ensure he has no more of them.  10mm coming out of a 16" barrel would have so much more zip on it then from a handgun.   Zip + mass = "Oh Shit!" for bad guys.

And it would be an awesome pig gun.  I think it would fulfill the role that Cooper saw for what he referred to as a "Thumper" quite nicely...

Not sure of ballistics and all of that but up close it would be like a semi-auto 45/70 I would think even more lethal.  I am swamped right now and just come to forum for a break from packing orders (it's insane the orders coming in)  but if anyone has the time to compare those two and post it I think it would make a good read.  The 10mm will not have the range of the 45/75 so give the close up numbers.
