This Has Possibilities…The Top 5 Best 9mm Pistol Caliber Carbines

In the video below, the narrator says something about 9mm’s being a ‘staple firearm of the American West’, this is not true, so accept my apology for that. The 9mm has been around for well over 100 years, but it certainly wasn’t available in the old west.

The 9×19mm Parabellum (also known as 9mm Parabellum or 9mm Luger or simply 9mm) is a rimless, tapered firearms cartridge. Originally designed by Austrian firearm designer Georg Luger in 1901, it is widely considered the most popular handgun and submachine gun cartridge due to its low cost and extensive availability.

So I don’t know where the narrator got his facts from…but whatever.

But, alot of people do ask; ‘When did 9mm become popular in the US?’.

By the 1990s, many civilian gun owners moved away from handguns like the . 38 Special and . 357 Magnum, favoring 9mm semi-automatic handguns. Ammunition availability has followed this trend, with 9mm cartridges more plentiful and easier to find than most cartridges.

So, now that we have our facts straight, let’s get down to the meat of the subject, 9mm carbines.

Pistol caliber carbines are very popular and almost every gun manufacturer today makes one, or more, depending on the particular pistol caliber their customers want. But, since the 9mm cartridge is a very popular caliber, it just makes sense for alot of these carbines today to come in that particular caliber.

In the video below, you’ll see 5 of the most most popular types of these carbines chambered in 9mm.
