Somehow I acquired a couple destroyer carbines. It shoots the 9mm largo round. It's a neat little rifle and fun to play with but how practical I don't know. There are other choices for a pistol caliber rifle. Any thoughts?
It is as useful as any pistol caliber bolt action would be. Small game/medium game/defense out to 100 yards.
Shoot 38 supers out of it. Probably best if you load them down to .38acp specs. These are 1937 Spanish civil war relics if I remember correctly. I have never seen one in person. I guess they did not make it down to my area.
A person often meets his destiny while walking the path he took to avoid it.
I like the fact that I can learn something new every day.....I have never heard of a Destroyer carbine till it ws brought up.
So I did the search:
I'm guessing they are of very limited use?

Survival isn't a game...it's what you do when the game goes sideways.
they are a neat little rifle, poor mans rook rifle perhaps? LOL. I have a star pistol too but I don't really subscribe to a pistol/rifle combo. Nevertheless they are a lot of fun. It don't look like there is a crown on my rifles. I have lots of brass and dies to go along with them. I don't see this little rifle being of much use. I thought about converting it over but really couldn't come up with a round any better than the 9mm bergman in this case.
Do you have a link or info on those yugo bullets?
More Sporters 019.jpgHello all,
Just a quick note to say that the little Destroyer carbine is a ball to shoot and as deadly as any small caliber rifle I own. For some reason it is one of the two rifles that I can actually hit something with using iron sights and bi-focals. The factory ammo 125gn/ 1120MV/352ME is a potent little rascal and the carbine carries nicely and points like a dream. My Destroyer is in the safe at this point but I will dig it out to see if it has the crown.
randyt take one of your new treasures and try plinking with it, I can throw a soup can into the back yard and keep it going through an entire clip.
BTW I am new to your forum, seems like a great place you have here. Take care and God bless....cordell
