Lots of lever suggestions but the OP clarified he's thinking semi-auto. Nothing wrong with levers, just sayin...

Beretta storm carbine

Not sure did anyone mention Beretta Storm Carbines?
9mm 40 or 45acp choose your caliber. They appear to be high quality.
high priced too!

Good carbines, I almost bought one when they came out several years back. Me and the dealer at the show couldn't deal because he didn't except plastic.

I would take a hard look at a JR Carbine. 9, 40, or 45.

I got a Takedown 9mm. With glock mags.

They run great. mine is over 2000 rounds, not so much as a hickup.
The take down can use their conversion kit to shoot any of the three calibers.
They take AR 15 furniture, AR trigger group.

They also dont care about dirt. Ive ran 1000 rounds through mine without cleaning it.
If anyone would of told me how accurate these are, I wouldnt have believed it.

Awesome rifle. I am looking to buy another.

Good luck.

I have a lot of pistol caliber carbines, all lever guns though!
Marlin 1894's in 357, 44 mag, 44-40, 45LC. The beauty of the lever gun is you can get them with barrel length's ranging from 16" - 24" so you can get the right tool for the right job.

Don't understand the obsession with an auto carbine in the .357 I do believe the Desert Eagle had a pistol in that caliber, and maybe still do, but if I remember right had difficulty with extraction and ejection, have no idea why the .44Mag never experienced that problem as I have the older Ruger .44Mag Auto, as well as the Ruger .44Mag Super Blackhawk, not to mention my M-1 Carbine and my .30 Caliber Ruger Blackhawk. Fact is I just ordered a Henry Big Boy in .357 to go with my Ruger .357 Blackhawk.

I bought a 9mm marlin and a folding stock(ramline) and it is very accurate
I also have a 357 marlin 1894 and it is very fun to shoot & 38s are cheep.neither one ever jammed. You could bet your life on it. Both rifles are good for 130 yd. The 9mm might be a little more accurate than the lever. I would never sell either just because of ammo availability.

How did I miss this thread!?

Pistol caliber carbines are great fun. I have a couple.

1. Beretta CX4 Storm in 45acp.



2. FNH PS90 SBR (Technically a pistol round since there are pistols chambered in 5.7)



3. Taurus CT9. Yes! A Taurus! It's actually a great little 9mm carbine and 9mm AR magazines can be modified to work with it so you have 32 rounds instead of that silly ten rounder that comes with it.



4. MP5 Clone



5. Last but certainly not least, a pair of Ruger PC carbines.

My next lever gun will be a Henry in 327 mag. Supposed to be released in March of this year.

I really want to find a PC9. Its too bad Ruger stop making these. They should start a line similar to the PC9 that would fit into the American line-up...The "American PC9"

I looked at every PCC I could find and got my hands on a lot of them for close inspection and fired a couple at my local range. I ended up opting for the Tresna Defense JAG 9, a 9mm that uses Glock mags. A tad more expensive than others but a fine tool. Sharing all my Glock mags was a requirement and the 9mm out of a rifle will surprise a lot of people.

I got tired of looking for PC or Camp 9. I bought a Gen 2 Kel-tec Sub 2000. Takes the same mags as my Glock 19. The carbine has been completely reliable and accurate. I thought I would just like it but now I love it. Everyone that shoots it wants to buy one. I'm still keeping my eye out for Ruger but I won't be seeming the Kel-tec.

I also think the MechTech Systems CCU is a neat concept... If you have a pistol lower you can dedicate to a carbine rifle.
