Finally its almost done. 995 converted to 32 N.A.A. its going to be a real bottle rocket. Shilen 7.65 barrel blank 1/10 twist. Finished barrel to be 16.5 inches, target crowned and ported. Fires and cycles the bolt with no problem. We need to tweak the mag some for proper function. Maybe add a full length shim and spring change. A custom made scope rail is in the works. A fixed 4X will ride on top. Final finish will likely be a matte hardchrome. Chrony and gelatin test to follow. All work performed by a pro smith.

I would hate to see this one go back to the factory.I'll bet thay would re barrel it put in a factory stock and send it back with 2 extra clips.

Looks good post picks when available!

Cost effective? Hell no. I needed a inexpensive reliable platform to start. The 995 fit the bill. There is no other 32 N.A.A. rifle or carbine I know of. And believe me I've looked. This may be the first of its kind. I just could'nt leave this one alone. I do own a converted East German Makarov in 32 NAA, built by the same gunsmith. I think you'll agree he does nice work.

How are you making the mags work from 9mm Luger to the .32? If you could, post pics of everything you did, I am interested in this.

The stock mags for the 9x18 Makarov work just fine with no mods. for the 32NAA pistol conversion. The 9x19 995 mags are a touch long for the 32 NAA for fully reliable feed. He's working on mag modification now. He does not see it as a major obstacle. I will post all the pics you want when its complete.

Wow! I questioned on here if HP would ever make a 32 naa a while back. Didn't think someone would home brew!

.32 NAA is a .380 ACP necked down to accept 60gr .32 bullets, so in the 995 it really shouldn't be an issue. the .380 and the 9x19 mags for the pistols are the same, and as we know, the carbine mags will fit the pistols, albeit a bit loose.

I'd like to see more info on the .32 NAA round, it sounds intersting. There's just not m,uch on it out there I can find. Personal experiences anyone?

380 9X17, Makarov 9x18 and 9mm luger 9x19. 32NAA 60 gr. Speer Gold Dot H.P. Cor-Bon factory loads average about 1430 FPS IN 4.25 inch barrel. Handloads mild to wild 85gr. Hornady XTP average just under 1200 fps. Hornady 65gr. XTP HP 1700fps 4.25 inch barrel. This is not a typo. That load will be high stepp'in out of a 16 inch barrel.

If I send you my carbine can you convert it to 7.62x25 Tokarev for me? Now that would kick butt.

Wow, that's 7.62 Tokarov speeds, I'm impressed. I'm interested to see how that gun shoots EZ. Let us know.

I'd like mine coverted to .22LR, now that would be cool, but I'd also like it to be easilly converted back to 9mm.

I wish they made sabot rounds for .22's or something.

I don't see Ceiner breaking into this market anytime soon! :D :roll:

Awesome project EchoZulu. Doing stuff like that gives me a chubby; the only thing that would make it better is if you were actually doing it yourself. Looking forward to the AAR.
