Colt’s famous Frontier Six-Shooter was chambered in the .44-40 round used among Winchester’s Model 1873 almost 150 years ago, and pistol-caliber carbines now provide the same kind of benefits. When contrasted to carbines or rifles chambered for rifle cartridges, pistol-caliber long guns are an economical, small, light, and cheap choice. Furthermore, compared to a handgun chambered for the same cartridge, they provide highly promising precision and more power. When certain cartridges are in short supply, possessing a rifle and a pistol that both use the same ammo can make a shooter’s logistics easier.
