And this one comes with the correct-length barrel to be tossing in a conversion cylinder when you shoulder the thing.

Hi, the carbine is an interesting firearm, but has a downside using cap and ball. Cap parts and gas so close to one's face is a bit discombobulating. Expect to get pieces of cap embedded in your  face. IMO the safe way to use the carbine is with the conversion cylinder.

The carbine with conversion cylinders can be a very accurate firearm with good groups. The sight is excellent. It certainly would be a conversion piece at the range.
