Just Right Carbines Expands Offerings


Just Right Carbines manufactures a number of pistol caliber carbines that have an AR-style appearance (and partial compatibility) and use popular handgun magazines from Glock and Smith & Wesson. Two new models have been shown at the recent National Association of Sporting Goods Wholesalers show. One was the rifle chambered in .357 SIG that was announced earlier in the year, while the second is a new generation of rifle that features a removable stock.

The first rifle – chambered in .357 SIG – follows the same pattern as the existing models in other calibers. The gun can be had in both the Quadrail and Takedown models with Glock magazines. However, the caliber is not available for the Marine model or models that use non-Glock magazines. Finishes such as the Muddy Girl line and A-TACS Foliage are available in addition to standard black.


The second rifle shown at NASGW is the third generation of rifle designed by Just Right Carbines. The new gun will look very similar to and function the same as the current rifles. However, two significant things have been done to make this rifle worth consideration. First, the company added the ability to quickly detach the buttstock from the receiver to vastly improve the ease of cleaning the guns. According to the company, sub-$100 kits will be sold to retrofit existing JRC guns.

The second improvement is in the warranty offered by the company: these guns will have a lifetime warranty.

It seems that pistol caliber carbines are becoming more popular in the current market. You can even get them in .380 ACP if you so desire.

    Not my thing, wouldn’t buy one; however, if I was handed one at the range, I’m sure I would smile while shooting it.

  • Maxpwer

    Can’t get enough pistol caliber carbines. Wish JRC disassembled like an AR, but then I guess it would just be an AR.

  • Critter

    I have all these hi cap Glock mags…..

    • Daniel

      All I have is a bunch of standard capacity mags.

  • Jsim

    They just need to make one in 10mm

    • Anonymoose

      .460 Rowland, tho.

      • BattleshipGrey

        There’s been a lot of requests for .460 Rowland lately.

      • Cal S.

        .50 GI or go home.

        • Anonymoose

          I wonder…if you pumped .50GI up to .460 Rowland pressures, what kind of ballistics could you expect? (let’s say 300gr ammo, because 230 is pretty meh) This is assuming you still have both your hands after firing the first couple rounds.

          • Cal S.

            Psht, who needs hands?

  • Plumbiphilious

    Is it straight blowback? It’s a bit odd to have a .357 Sig round with a wonderful pressure curve go to waste in straight blowback (and somewhat uncomfortable due to the relatively heavy reciprocating bolt mass). It’s the sort of round with enough gas to comfortably cycle a DI AR, if RMW Xtreme is true.

    My 9mm JR runs like a clock and is very accurate. My 45 is an upgraded early version, with the tri-flatted barrel. It has been a bit more troublesome, basically doesn’t like to run dirty. It is also very accurate.

    I’m curious about that (apparent) quick-detach stock. Something custom? Haven’t been able to find it online.
