A carbine is a rifle with a relatively short barrel. If you have a carbine receiver it's for a rifle. There are lots of 9mm carbines out there. Here is a link to some photos Hope that helps.

How do you check the serial number on an Iver Johnson 9mm carbine to tell if it is a pistol or rifle receiver?

All IJ 9MM carbines are rifles. The receiver itself is not for a firearm, it is the firearm, missing some important other parts though, legally it is the firearm itself. The word carbine would indicate that it is more towards the rifle side of things, but a carbine in itself is a shortened easy handling rifle.

What is the history on a etts continsouza mle-m-16 gun?

I have one of them(only the metal part) found in Gallipoli. I need the answer too. French Berthier rifle model 1916, either carbine or rifle (rifle is about 51" or so). Based on the Berthier 1907 rifle or 1892 carbine (on which the 1907 was based), but with a 5-round magazine (although those markings may appear on the receiver of a rifle/carbine with a 3-round magazine depending on when it was assembled. Available parts were used.) Berthier 1907 was, in turn, based on the Berthier 1892 carbine. Produced to back-fill French troops during WWI after the Lebel Rifles fell into short supply due to German advances and the Berthier 1907/15 was found to be lacking due to its 3-round magazine. Shoots 8mm Lebel. As you can probably tell by now, the history is somewhat complicated. It continues to be so as the rifles were further modified and continued to serve into WWII.

How can you tell the difference from carbine or rifle barrels?

"Carbine", "rifle", and even "submachinegun" really come down to how the manufacturer and the user describe them. In the case of the CAR-15 and M4, they're shortened forms of the M16 rifle, so why they're considered carbines is quite easy to understand. Much different story in the case of the Chinese, who manufacture two firearms designated the Type 56 - the Type 56 carbine, which is the SKS rifle, and the Type 56 rifle, which is the AK rifle. In spite of the SKS being longer than the AK (both in barrel and in overall length), the SKS is designated as the carbine to the Chinese. One possible reason may be that, compared to the standard service weapons of the time - which were generally bolt action or semi-automatic rifles firing full power cartridges - the intermediate 7.62x39 cartridge and comparatively shorter length of the SKS vs. standard service rifles at the time made it a carbine, comparatively. Then there's a case of the HK53 - a shortened form of the HK33 (itself, a scaled down version of the G3), firing the 5.56x45 cartridge. By most standards, it would be considered a carbine. But the manufacturer designated it as a submachinegun. So it's really a simple matter of what the manufacturer wishes to call it. The M16, had it been applied in its intended role, would probably have been considered a carbine. The M16 was originally intended to replace the M1 and M2 carbine, with the AR-10 accompanying it as a standard service rifle to replace the M1 Garand.

What is the value of a us model 1873 Springfield trap door with a short forearm and long barrel?

there are (basically) two types of trapdoors. The rifle and the carbine. (There is also a cadet model) The rifle barrel is 32 5/8" long and the carbine barrel is 22" long. Since you say 'short forearm' it would appear you have a carbine. Measure the barrel to be sure. As to value, it would depend on overall condition, finish, serial number (when it was made) bore and wood...................send me the full serial number and I will tell you when it was made.
