    I'm confused mainly about the 9mm piston and carbine. Are the magazines the same between the two or not? It looks like the .40 and .45 use the same mags. I was wanting to go 9mm for cost of ammo and less recoil. I don't have a problem going to another caliber except for dealer availability. My in-town dealer has the 9 and 45. I'm looking to buy in a couple weeks. Thanks

    If those are the only two available at your dealer, and you want interchangeability, go the 45 acp route.

    I thought the 9mm carbine mags would fit the pistol but the pistol mags wouldn't fit the carbine.

    Yes, 995 carbine mags will work in the pistol, but not the other way around.

    Ok, I actually have all 3 pistols & carbines,
    fact: the 45 & 40 S&W mags swap fine between carbine and pistol. The other guys are right the 9mm pistol mags are too short for the carbine. The carbine mags fit pistol. However, they stick out the bottom of grip & wobble.
