NEW RELEASE: Ruger PC Carbine In 9mm

Pc carbine

Ruger has just announced the PC Carbine – a pistol caliber carbine chambered in 9mm. And to answer your most immediate question: YES, it takes GLOCK mags. As well as SR/Security-9 magazines with an included interchangeable magazine well. At an approximate street price in the mid $500 range, the PC Carbine appears to pack in a lot of features.

Take down capability, a threaded barrel, reversible magazine release and charging handle and, once again, GLOCK mags. Add in a direct-machined optics rail and Ruger set projected to sell the PC Carbine by the container full.

Personally, I see this new pistol caliber carbine as being a lightweight and inexpensive silencer host.
While those who live in less firearms-friendly areas of the country will appreciate the model with 10 round magazines and without the 1/2 x 28 threaded barrel.

Additional specifications are listed below.

RUGER PC CARBINE

 

 

  • Interchangeable magazine wells for use of common Ruger® and Glock® magazines. Ships with SR-Series Pistol and Security-9® magazine well installed and an additional magazinewell accepting Glock® magazines is included. Ruger American Pistol® magazine well is available at ShopRuger.com.
  • Easy takedown enables quick separation of the barrel/forend assembly from the action for ease of transportation and storage. Takedown is as simple as locking the bolt back and verifying that the rife is unloaded, pushing a recessed lever, twisting the subassemblies and pulling them apart.
  • Dead blow action features a custom tungsten dead blow weight that shortens bolt travel and reduces felt recoil and muzzle rise. Bolt is machined from heat treated, chrome-moly steel to ensure strength, structural integrity, and durability.
  • Reversible magazine release and reversible charging handle to support ambidextrous use or one-handed control manipulation while maintaining a proper firing grip.
  • Cold hammer-forged, chrome-moly steel barrel with ultra-precise rifling provides exceptional accuracy, longevity, and easy cleaning. The heavy contour barrel provides consistent accuracy, while barrel fluting sheds unnecessary weight and allows for quick handling.
    1/2″-28 threaded barrel with included thread protector allows for use of standard muzzleaccessories.
  • Accurate sighting system with adjustable ghost ring rear aperture sight and non-glare, protected blade front sight.
  • Soft rubber buttpad with spacers allows the rifle to be properly sized for different shooters or varying levels of outerwear or defensive gear (three, 1/2” spacers included).
  • Durable, glass-filled nylon synthetic stock features sling swivel studs for rapid slingattachment and forward mounted accessory rail to allow for a variety of under-barrel accessories such as lights or lasers. The grip features a proprietary texture for enhanced control.
  • Light, crisp trigger pull with minimal overtravel and positive reset utilizing proven 10/22® trigger components.
  • CNC-milled from an aerospace-grade 7075-T6 aluminum billet, the receiver includes an integrated Picatinny rail and is Type III hard-coat anodized for maximum durability.
    Also includes: one, SR-Series pistol magazine and hex wrenches for rear sight adjustment, buttpad spacer adjustment and charging handle removal
