Who would be interested in a 9mm Luger bolt action?

Post by mickb » 12 Jun 2019, 9:06 pm

Not trying to get numbers to petition a major company :) , more just a general conversation. Who else would find the idea of a small accurate 9mm bolt rifle Interesting or fun? I think it would be great for kids, can fulfill roles like a plinker, 22LR, and also stoked out of a 20" barrel you would get light projectiles to 1700fps, like an oversized 22WMR. Noise would probably be similar as the two cases hold about the same capacity.
There are some oddball single shots and combo rifles out there using the 9mm, but no bolts.

Obviously to custom make one is serious dollars. But if someone took something like the howa 1500 mini in 223 with similar bolt face to 9mm it would be a starter right there.

Could you just use an existing rifle or pistol case and use Trailboss to do something similar. Like a 50 S&W?

Yep you can do fairly similar yes by loading by reduced loads in 357, 44 rem and 45 colt. The idea with 9mm( and not trying to sell the idea, this is just bored wednesday musings) is 9mm has much less powder capacity, you could load 3500 plinking rounds off a pound of powder, better loading density, and the better accuracy potential bolt actions have over lever actions.
Actual practical benefits of all this, probably none :D

So something like this? http://www.gundepot.com.au/Listing/Details/887076 I know that's 9 X 23 not 9 X 19.

Exactly wombat, bloody nice one! I have not seen a destroyer advertised for years. They were used by their police in the day I believe.

The bergara takedown 9mm rifle almost tempted me but I prefer repeaters with longer barrels.

Nice I heard there were custom ones being done, also I think Armalon in the UK used to do them off enfields, but a $4K price tag.

G'day mickb,
Several Destroyer carbines were converted to fire 9x19 here when 9x23 was impossible to find, if you happen upon one remember they can only use 9mm Luger Standard ammo, not +P. If you find a Destroyer in 9x23 Largo do not EVER try loading 9x23 Winchester as the Winnie round is nearly 2x the pressure of the Largo. I have one of these carbines and they are great fun, as well as a really nice short (100m+) range fox and hare rifle, Cheers.

My preference would be to have one of the current 9mm Semi Auto Carbines on the market converted to lever release along the same lines as the Savage A22. Not too tactikool looking so it's not prohibited based on appearance and should use standard Glock 9mm magazines.
How's my posting?
