Our Assessment: The Calico M-900 carbine is a unique firearm known for its high-capacity magazine and distinctive appearance. Manufactured by Calico Light Weapons Systems, the M-900 is a semi-automatic carbine chambered in various calibers, including 9mm. However, the most notable feature of the Calico M-900 is its large-capacity magazine, which can hold up to 100 rounds of ammunition. The M-900 carbine features a futuristic design, with a polymer frame and stock and a distinctive helical magazine located above the barrel. The magazine feeds the ammunition into the firearm through a helical coil, which allows for the large capacity while maintaining a relatively compact size. This design also helps distribute the weight of the ammunition evenly, reducing the risk of jams or feeding issues. The Calico M-900 carbine was designed with the intention of providing users with a high-capacity firearm for various applications, including self-defense, target shooting, and even law enforcement use. The large magazine capacity allows for sustained fire without the need for frequent reloading, making it suitable for situations where a significant amount of firepower may be necessary. However, despite its innovative design and high-capacity magazine, the Calico M-900 carbine has seen limited adoption and popularity compared to more traditional firearms. Some users may find the carbine’s appearance unconventional, and its reliability and compatibility with different types of ammunition may vary. Overall, the Calico M-900 carbine with its 100-round magazine remains a curiosity in the firearms world, appreciated by collectors and enthusiasts for its unique design and capabilities. While not as widely used as other firearms, it stands as a testament to the creativity and ingenuity of firearm designers in their quest to push the boundaries of firearm technology.
