guide to pistol caliber carbines

The most popular pistol cartridge among today’s shooters in terms of sales is 9mm, and many would consider a 9mm carbine to be the ideal companion to their handgun. In fact, shooters have expressed interest in all types of pistol-caliber carbines but sometimes it can be difficult to get an idea of what the market actually offers in this category.

This is a non-exhaustive list of pistol-caliber carbines assembled by Lucky Gunner that have been made available on the commercial market. Some of these carbines are no longer made, but may be plentiful on the used market. A few of the carbines that are technically still in production are nevertheless difficult to track down. In any case, if you’re in the market for a pistol caliber rifle, this list should help get you started.

And because there are no pictures of actual pistol-caliber carbines anywhere in this chart, here’s a video of SIG’s upcoming MPX. Enjoy.
