I do not see the point of it, at all.

If you want an AK pistol get a 7.62 or a 5.45.

If you want a 9mm pistol, get a 9mm handgun.

They make factory 30 rounder for the 92 due to the 93r pistol

Mec-gar makes 20 rounder that are the shit. I used them extensively with great results. That said, I was looking back at some youtube reviews of the 9mm M1 carbine these guys made. Really wanted one but I'm glad I never bought one.

If you look closely at it, it doesn't appear to be "standard AK" in any direction . .

"Throwin' the wood on" might not be as easy as it seems.

I bet it's blowback crap in an AK looking shell.

Looks like Lower HG and mag well are probably injection molded and are only one piece

Um... I want one kind of. Obviously as a project because damn that's ugly. With some work it might be pretty fun though. Chiappa quality does scare me though.

The grip appears to be weird too. So no ability to swap it with an AK grip? I genuinely think you could probably put it under the knife and make something decent with it, so long as it runs to begin with.

But I won't be.

Mec-Gar 92 mags are flawless and way cheaper than the Beretta stamped 15 rounds for no reason bullshit.

It's a base for converting to an SBR or a pistol for the disabled once one of the assisting braces is installed

Is it even possible for a 9mm to operate anything other than blowback?

I suspect it's in a "shell" like the Mossberg Blaze 47.

It is possible, but blowback is simple and efficient with the 9mm.

HK uses a roller locking delayed blowback system in their MP5 ( leave it to the Germans to complicate what should be simple )

I ran a Tokarev AR that was DI. I'd imagine if you stayed with the hottest 9mm you could. But you likely wouldn't be able to use cheap stuff. You're really going to be pushing the limit of how much energy you can store in the recoil spring. Which, then has to strip another round, move the bolt carrier, etc.

I'm thinking everything inside the gun would need to be glass in order to not get hung up all the time. Not to mention the gas energy acting on something like the AK's piston. Which, we all know lets a lot of gas escape around it, and has a very short amount of time to work before its vented. It can be inefficient because it normally has tons of gas to work with.

So, if you had tons of time to get it worked out, I'd say yes. But it definitely would take some tweaking to get it right.

The newer sig 9mm "pistol", sbx might be the name, is gas operated I believe. I'm just going off of memory from watching macs videos and he was getting gas in the face from shooting suppressed.

Possibly but in one of the links posted it stated "standard ak trigger pack" or some similar wording that makes me believe it has an actual ak style receiver. I think an ak shell would make it hard to run an ak trigger.

Standard AK trigger, HG and mag well appear to be one piece plastic

Hmmm, interesting to hear it's Romanian.

Would be really cool if someone bought one & did a review.

I dislike everything cosmetically about that pistol. The grip is ugly, the front sight looks out of place on it and the magazine just looks ridiculous. It's like mixing polymer furniture with wood furniture.. It sometimes works but in most cases looks like crap.

I'm a fan of Chiappa. Having one of their Rhinos I am often impressed with the quality of their stuff. This case.. Price is good, idea is good. Actual product ugly.
