Sure, we all love ripping 5.56mm NATO rounds through a good ol’ AR, but that’s not the only game in town. There are plenty of companies selling 9mm carbines that offer less report, recoil and muzzle flash traditional rifles. When compared with handguns, 9mm carbines also have an edge, boasting an increased magazine capacity, bullet velocity and long-range accuracy. Ammo affordability is a consideration, too. With all this in mind, we took the liberty of rounding up 15 9mm carbines that are worth a close look.
