They make a 10mm CCU for 1911s and one for Glock 20s and 40s. If you get the Glock version you need to buy a feed ramp for it. It comes in 2 sizes so you just tell them what model you want it for and they'll get you the right one. If you get a 1911 version with a ramped barrel like my Para-Ordnance you need a Para Block that only comes in one size. If your frame isn't milled for a ramped barrel there nothing extra you need to buy.

On the Glock page it says: Factory Loaded Ammunition Only. Mech Tech recommends only using good quality factory loaded ammunition in the CCU which meets SAAMI, CIP or NATO standards. The CCU is a blowback operated action and is capable of safely firing ammunition up to +P. DO NOT USE +P+ or ‘hotter’ loads.

The 1911 page says: Factory Loaded Ammunition Only. MechTech recommends only using good quality factory loaded ammunition in the CCU. The CCU is a blowback operated action and is capable of safely firing ammunition up to +P. DO NOT USE +P+ or ‘hotter’ loads.

And the XD page says: Factory Loaded Ammunition Only. Mech Tech recommends only using good quality factory loaded ammunition in the CCU which meets SAAMI, CIP or NATO standards. The CCU is a blowback operated action and is capable of safely firing ammunition up to +P. DO NOT USE +P+ or ‘hotter’ loads.

So you can use any ammo that's within SAAMI specs, whether it's +P or not. I haven't seen any 10mm ammo labeled as +P but if I did I would look for something else.

Here's a video from YouTube that wouldn't work when I tried it from another site. They shoot 10mm DoubleTap ammo in a MechTech carbine.



Hi-Point is coming out with a 10mm carbine with a 10-round mag sometime in 2018. https://www.hi-pointfirearms.com/index.html

There's another PCC option this year. Iver Johnson is selling a .45 ACP 1911A1 carbine for $698.00, and a 28-round .45 ACP 1911 drum for $75.00. In the past I've heard that 1911 carbines don't always work very well. I'll be waiting to hear the verdict on these.

Numrich Arms (Gun Parts Corp.) Used to sell that as a kit. Was under $150.00 if I remember correctly.

The 1911A1 carbine needs a VFG so there's a good place to hang on with both hands. Without it, I think it would be awkward but not entirely useless. A full length dust cover with a Picatinny rail would be nice.

Years ago, maybe a year or 2 after they came out I bought the 1911 version. While I traded it away later I did enjoy it. It WAS a bit bulky and "chunky" feeling. Heavier than needed, and did not have a fancy finish but it DID work, allowed for mounting an optic, and allowed me to carry my 1911 and have a carbine for backup that did not take up very much room. All in all, I would own it again now, maybe for the clock since that would lighten it up a bit.
