Pistol Caliber Carbine Reviews

9mm Carbines

A 9mm carbine is good for competition shooting and home defense. It extends the range of the 9mm and retains its moderate recoil. We surveyed this latest craze and picked our favorite models.

Rifle Reviews by Brand

CMMG (Banshee FourSix)

The CMMG Banshee FourSix performs similarly to the 17 HMR so it’s not that hard-hitting, but its size and low recoil make it really fun to shoot. Plus its penetrating power ranges out to 150 yards, so you can stack rounds at that distance.

Rifle Reviews by Model/Caliber

  • 30-06 Rifles – The 30-06 is mostly used by hunters because of its tolerable recoil and its ability to handle small to large game. Most experienced hunters love its versatility because you can choose heavy or light rounds and this rifle will perform equally well.
  • 6.5 Creedmoor Rifles – The 6.5 Creedmoor is one of the best match and hunting rounds today because of its flat trajectory, high ballistic coefficients, manageable recoil, and wide availability.
  • .300 Win Mag Rifles – The .300 Win Mag is a versatile hunting round that can drop almost any big game no matter the hunting condition. It has also proven its efficiency and reliability for military and long-range bench rest shooting applications. 
  • .338 Lapua Rifles – The .338 Lapua is a popular long-range, powerful cartridge with a max effective range of 1910 yards. Aside from hunters and long-range shooting enthusiasts, this round is also utilized by the military.
  • .300 Blackout Pistol – 300 BLK pistols offer transportability and maneuverability while retaining the .300 AAC Blackout’s performance.
  • PSA PSAK-47 Review – For its price range, the PSAK-47 is a standout. It marries classic AK reliability with modern features that the modern shooter will appreciate.

Air Rifles


  • PSA 223 Wylde AR-15 Upper – The PSA 223 Wylde 18″ is one of the most reliable AR-15 uppers you can get your money’s value out of. The fit and finish are excellent, and while the accuracy is unlikely to be sub-MOA level, it compares well to mid-level builds.
  • 300 Blackout SBR Uppers – The 300 Blackout is designed for short barrels so it’s most potent when fired through SBRs 4or when using subsonic ammo. That’s why most gun enthusiasts who want to convert their AR-15 into a short-barreled rifle use a 300 Blackout upper. Here are some of our favorite brands:
    • PSA 7.5″ 300 Blackout Upper – The PSA 300 Blackout upper is reliable, cost-efficient, lightweight, and easy to install. It has easily controllable recoil, especially for seasoned shooters. We suggest doing a trigger upgrade if you want better accuracy.
  • Left-handed AR15 Uppers – Lefties have difficulty finding uppers that suit them because not all uppers are ambidextrous. So we created an article with the best left-handed AR15 uppers.


  • AR Lowers – Lower receivers are as important as uppers. So if you’re looking for a reliable lower, whether it’s for an AR-10 or an AR-15 build, you’ll find the best one in this article!
