It fires the Photon grenades that cause pining.

the grenade launcher is what causes pinning yes, but photon grenades are a different grenade IIRC.

Feel free to give me a page ref. if I'm wrong :P

The background for the carbine says it is firing photon grenades, but that is not reflected by the rules. A model equipped with a carbine does not automatically have photon grenades.

It claims it shoots photon grenades but has a different effect than the ones you can equip your units with. Anyone had much luck with pinning units?

pinning is far from reliable ^-^ on marines you have to hit with 9 carbs on average to get a pin, about the only army that you can actually pin are guard ^-^

Carbs aint so great in 4th :P

Ok...lemme see if I understand this correctly...

Carbs come with Photon Grenade launchers..meaning they automatically fire Photon Grenades, and that's what gives them the 'Pinning' attribute?

Or do you have to purchase Photon Grenades in order to do so?

The grenades may or may not be factored into the pinning check. The fluff makes it sound like it is, but n ever specifically says. You don't have to purchase grenades to cause a pin check.
