Great Pistol Caliber Carbines

So finally I am hoping the run on and high inflated cost of guns and ammo go down with Trumph winning so I may finally be able to purchase a carbine. I'm just wondering how long it's going to take for a decent drop in demand and prices.

Looking for a pistol caliber to match one of my pistols and really want something more powerful than a 9mm. I have a New Ruger Blackhawk .357 and was wondering if anyone can tell me if a .357 carbine can use .38 specials?

Please advise, thanks!

The Marlin Model 1894C is an excellent .357 Mag/.38 Spl carbine.

Rossi 92. Affordable, reliable, tough, accurate, fast handling as a pistol caliber carbine should be. I highly recommend.

Dang it, I meant semi-auto not lever action. Something more along the lines of the new Hi-Point bullpup.

That link doesn't show that gun chambered in .357 mag. I don't think .357 mag can work in a semi-auto rifle.

Bullit..Hi-point makes an .9mm, .40, and 45 caliber semi-auto carbine. Their inexpensive ($250-300), come with rails, and they work!!!! I have the .9mm 955TS and I have no complaints. Straight blow back design and ultra reliable. May not be what your looking for, but they are a blast to shoot.

I don't know why it couldn't be done. Coonan Arms makes a semi auto .357 pistol, and Ruger made semi auto rifles in .44 magnum, so the technology exists. Most of the dimensions of the .30 caliber carbine are the same as or close to .357........robin

...I'm just wondering how long it's going to take for a decent drop in demand and prices...
I predict that it will take at least 3-monts AFTER his inauguration. He's already backpedaling on ObozoCare & immigration, what's next.

While it is true that... During a November 5 speech in Reno, Nevada, former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani said Donald Trump will save the Second Amendment but Hillary Clinton will “take it away from you.”

There's this post election development...
Whom he picks for US-AG could be troubling for us pro 2nd folks... The Second Amendment and President Trump - the final paragraph is quite worrisome to say the least; stay tuned...

Regarding your search for a carbine... the 38-spl is one of my favorite cartridge's, BUT, it was designed for wheel guns, not autoloaders.

The only auto-loading carbines your going to find are those that are chambered for auto-loading pistol cartridge's - 9mm being the most common, 45-acp come's in second, followed by.?? Most are copies of para-military type's "aka assault weapons" which I don't think your interested in.

Doesn't Ruger offer a second cylinder chambered in 9mm for the BH-357?? Could've swore I saw one somewhere in my travels. Both cartridge's have a nominal bullet diameter of .355", so it's logical choice.

Marlin used to make a pair of carbines called Camp-9 & Camp-45. Stylistically they were similar in concept to a Ruger 10/22, by that I mean they were NOT copies of, or attempts to, mimic para-military type rifles. Now discontinued they fetch a pretty penny on the used market.

The C-9 used the same mags as one (or more) of the S&W "wonder-nine"s from that era (mid~late 80's); 15-rds was the limit prior to Jan-1995. The C-45 used the same mags as the 1911's if memory serve's me right.

I had a C-9 back in the 80's, trigger was extremely heavy, a trigger job was a must just to get into the 3~4lb range and I was never able to find any hi-cap (over 15-rd) mags.

I don't know of any civilian-ized carbines on today's market. Seems like every manufacturer is bent on making military style firearms, apparently in an effort to piss off the anti-2nd crowd. Check 2nd to last paragraph of the above referenced article - The danger we face is

Try finding a hunting rifle with a nice walnut wood stock - I've been looking (unsuccessfully) for quite some time now.

Sorry for the long winded post, didn't want to give you a quick flim-flam type answer.

Hmmm....not sure if you will find an auto loader in 38/357. I highly recommend trying an nice lever gun to go along with that Blackhawk. You can really churn out rounds out of those lever guns if you get good. They are a blast to shoot. My kids automatically go to the Lever guns on range trips. Give one a try!

My next gun purchase is going to be a [Henry] lever or a CZ-452 / 455 [south paw] bolt rifle.

Marlin had a really nice .357/.38spl lever rifle (model 1894C), saw one in a local gun store couple months ago.
Couldn't get the owner to give me a price [we just took it in on trade blah blah] it was in great condition, I really wanted to buy it, needless to say, it wasn't there very long.

Yeah Rossi has .357 lever rifles too (with a built in lawyer lock), but I like USA made. For the most part fit & finish is far superior to south of the border products - just my 2C.

I love my Marlin Camp9 Carbine, use it in PCC competition.
Unfortunately Marlin doesn't make them any more.
