Every 9mm carbine or pistol could be converted to this round very simply. And it would use a standard .22/.223/5.56 suppressor.
See THIS is where I think this round has potential over 5.7, 4.6, and other small pistol "PDW" calibers before it. If they can make a drop-in conversion barrel for 9mm Glocks for around $100 (lone wolf, are you listening?), this round could really gain a following. The fact that you can convert basically any 9mm to this round (in theory) makes it a serious contender IMO.
But such a conversion seems like such an obvious boon, I wondered why no one has tried it before? Then it occurred to me, that the interchangeability could also be the achilles heel of the whole enterprise. Couldn't the .22 TCM be accidentally fired in a 9mm firearm?
Of course a person would have to be an idiot to load such an obviously different cartridge as the .22 TCM into a 9mm firearm. But that's what many product liability lawsuits are made from. Attempts to idiot-proof the world.
