From Extar USA . . .

Firearm innovator Extar USA has evolved the popular EP9 platform into a carbine, and not simply given it a longer barrel. Demonstrating once again engineering prowess and a genuine care for customer interests, the EP9 Carbine accomplishes a weight and recoil combination rarely achieved.

Unlike so many other large-format pistol and carbine pairings on the market, Extar has taken the time to recalculate and reformulate bolt mass and spring rate for the increased back pressure longer barrels create. The end result is a carbine that shoots just as softly as the famous EP9 pistol. Additionally, Extar‘s Dynamic Mass Bolt eliminates bolt bounce for a safer, smoother-running PCC.

Why Carbine?

Pistol-caliber carbines (PCCs) have had a resurgence of popularity for multiple reasons.

  1. Cost of ammunition: Even during ammunition crises, pistol-caliber ammunition is less expensive than rifle ammunition, making range sessions and self defense less expensive.
  2. Shared magazines/ammunition: The EP9 Carbine is fed using Glock-pattern magazines, so the same magazine and ammunition can function in your pistol and your rifle. Extar‘s own 9mm Glock-pattern magazines make this even more affordable.
  3. Competition: PCC-based competitions have gained popularity for the reasons above plus can be run at any pistol-rated range. Weighing in at just over 5lbs, the EP9 Carbine is sure to provide a speed-and-handling advantage.
  4. Fun!: A carbine that costs less to feed, is easier to handle, and can be used more places is simply fun to have. Additionally the firearm you use more is likely to be the one you become more proficient with, turning fun times into training.
