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.
