Check Beretta CX4 Storm. Selection is just 9mm, .40 and .45 (that I know of)

Marlin Model 1894 comes in many pistol cartridges, including 357 and 44 mag. I have one in .41 Mag and a Ruger Blackhawk in .41 Mag as a combo rifle/pistol. Both great firearms!

I had an early Ruger .44 carbine with the tubular magazine. I kick myself on a regular basis for having sold it. Although .44 magnum ammunition is crazy expensive right now.

I also had a Marlin 94 CS in .357 and it was a hoot.

the key is an effective pistol cartidge when used in a carbine rifle. the only practical one i can think of is the ruger 44 carbine. you can get autoloaders or revolver style pistols to match.

This probably isn't the kind of carbine you are looking for, but i think they are pretty interesting and Ruger has a good rep. I wouldn't mind a 10-22's big brother for a fun gun. :) I have wondered about mags for them, but a buddy found a 30 round mag for his Ruger P95, so that should be a climbable hill.

I have not used that vendor, but i have heard a few favorable reports.

Lucky dog. The 1894 in .41Mag is a rare bird.

Marlin DID make a light carbine semi in 9mm and in 45 ACP. Neither is a giant powerhouse, but the carbine DOES extend the reach of a pistol round quite a bit.
