[SHOT 2016] Just Right Carbines

    Just Right Carbines

    Maybe I’ve got a sort of a thing for pistol caliber carbines. Anyway, I happened upon the booth for Just Right Carbines and decided that there could never be enough options available for one shopping pistol caliber carbines.

    Just Right Carbines are completely ambidextrous, with bolt and ejection switchable without a gunsmith. They are available in 9mm, .357 SIG, .40 S&W, and .45 ACP. They use standard Glock magazines, though the 9mm and .40 S&W can be converted to use M&P mags with a magwell replacement. Using pistol magazines means that not only are the cartridges interchangeable between the carbine and a matched handgun, but the magazines can be used in either, also. This is a definite plus for those who take advantage of it.

    Based on customer feedback, Just Right Carbines has added a quick release stock for 2016. It takes only a quick twist to unlock the stock and pull it free of the receiver.

    The standard model Just Right Carbine has a 17-inch button barrel and a free floating quadrail handguard ready for lights, lasers, or other accessories. The receiver has an upper rail for optics, and the stock is a stanard adjustable carbine-style unit. MSRP begins at $799 for the 9mm, .40 S&W, and .45 ACP models. MSRP on the .357 SIG model begins at $874. Models compliant for California, SAFE Act, and Canada are available, and all but the .357 SIG and SAFE Act models can be had with camouflage in Desert, Muddy Girl, A-TACS FG, or Snow Ghost.

    Caliber conversion kits are available, making it pretty easy to switch a Just Right Carbine over to another caliber. Each kit contains everything needed to convert without a gunsmith, including barrel, bolt, mag well, ejector plate, magazine, and all required tools. Conversion kits begin at $249 MSRP.

    Takedown models of the Justr Right Carbine are available in all calibers. The Takedown models swap out the quadrail and barrel nut on the standard model for a tube that screws off without tools, releasing the barrel and making takedown literally as easy as a twist. Reassembly takes just moments. Takedown models begin at $799 and are available in the same color options as the standard models. A takedown tube is also available which easily converts a quadrail model to a Takedown model. The tube retails for $70.
