Ruger PC Carbine Models
One of the hottest segments of the firearms industry these days are Pistol-Caliber Carbines (PCC). Ruger has taken notice of this and introduced Six new PCC models. There are three models chambered in 9mm and three in .40 S&W chamberings. So now for a closer look at the different options.
While Ruger introduced 6 new models, not including the 4 distributor exclusives, there are few differences between them. First, all the new PCC models chambered in 9mm feature an aluminum free-float handguard with Magpul M-LOK slots on all four sides. The .40 S&W models have the standard black synthetic nylon stock and forearm of the original Ruger PC Carbine. Threaded barrels are available in both calibers.
All of the Ruger PC Carbine models feature:
- Interchangeable mag wells for use with Ruger or GLOCK mags
- Dead blow action to reduce recoil
- Quick takedown similar to their 10/22 Takedown rifles
- A reversible magazine release and charging handle to accommodate right- or left-handed shooters
- Ghost ring adjustable rear aperture sight and a non-glare, protected blade front sight
- Adjustable buttpad with spacer
- One SR-Series pistol magazine, wrenches, and buttpad spacers
