The Just Right Carbine

Whether you’d like one for home-defense, just want to have some fun on the range or still pine for the good ol’ days, - when your rifle and your sidearm took the same ammunition – you can appreciate a pistol caliber carbine. Today we’ve got one that goes a step further – it accepts your favorite pistol-caliber magazines, too.

Based out of Canandaigua, New York, Just Right Carbines was formed in 2009. Its founders had one mission in mind: to engineer a simpler, more reliable and more flexible carbine in center-fire pistol calibers. The gun I’m holding, simply called a Just Right Carbine, is the result of their work. It’s a straight blowback-operated, semi-automatic, pistol-caliber carbine with a telescoping 6-position collapsible buttstock and free-floating quadrail forend.

I hope we will see a .44 Mag version sometime, because home-defense where I live can mean grizzlies and black bears in the backyard at any time. Until then the Rem 870 is on duty.

I have one in 9mm and love it.It's a fun rifle,on the cheap side for ammo.Also very accurate at close range.Being a member at a range where the longest range is 135 yards I haven't had the chance to check accuracy beyond that,but its highly accurate up and to that range with 3' groupings!Well worth it.
