Ruger Announces Six New PC Carbine Models

U.S.A.-(Ammoland.com)- Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) is excited to introduce six new PC Carbine configurations including three free-float handguard models chambered in the popular 9mm Luger and three standard models offered in the highly anticipated .40 S&W chambering. These new PC Carbine models are offered in varying magazine capacity and threaded barrel configurations to ensure multi-state availability.

With improved utility for home defense and competition, the 9mm free-float handguard models feature a hard-coat anodized aluminum handguard with Magpul M-LOK accessory attachment slots on all four sides for easy mounting of M-LOK-compatible accessories. The appeal of the popular PC Carbine is further broadened with new models designed to accept the powerful .40 S&W cartridge.

All of these new models boast the hallmark features of the original PC Carbine. Uniquely designed for use with a variety of magazines, the PC Carbine has an easily interchangeable magazine well system that allows the rifle to accept common Ruger and newer Glock magazines. The PC Carbine also features a dead blow action with a custom tungsten weight that shortens bolt travel and reduces felt recoil and muzzle rise.

Similar to the popular 10/22 Takedown rifle, the PC Carbine is designed for 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 rifle is unloaded, pushing a recessed lever, twisting the subassemblies and pulling them apart.

The rifles also feature a reversible magazine release and charging handle to accommodate right- or left-handed shooters. The bolt is machined from heat-treated, chrome-moly steel to ensure strength, structural integrity and durability. The cold hammer-forged, chrome-moly steel barrel with ultra-precise rifling provides exceptional accuracy, longevity and easier cleaning, and some models feature a threaded muzzle to allow for use of standard muzzle accessories.

The accurate sighting system features a barrel-mounted, ghost ring adjustable rear aperture sight and a non-glare, protected blade front sight. The durable, glass-filled nylon synthetic stock features a soft rubber buttpad with spacers to allow the rifle to be adjusted for different sized shooters or varying levels of outerwear.

The PC Carbine ships with the SR-Series magazine well installed and an additional magazine well that accepts newer Glock magazines. A 9mm Ruger American Pistol magazine well is available separately at ShopRuger.com.

    I’d love to see a 10mm version come out so I can pack it with my Glock 20. Be nice to have a Ruger PC 10mm carbine for long range shots.

    I want a 45 GAP PC Carbine…better than the 40, same bullet as the ACP, everything else stays the same size as 9mm. What’s not to like, other than everyone hating on 45 GAP. I love the 45 GAP.

    Come on Ruger. Nothing is more American than 45acp. We really need a good one and you need to build it.

    They should make an ISB unit to sell/use, like they did with the 10/22. I would really want one in .45.

    Graham Rockwell’s of Ruger phone number is included in this message. I am disabled veteran who has been shooting all of my life. Yes, I am disabled and I know I look pathetic so if you want to make fun of me for being a cripple and missing body parts that’s okay. You can make derogatory comments like I should kill myself, or throw another pity party. I’d just love to cut the legs off of some people and see how they do the rest of their life. There is not many people I would do that to but there… Read more »

    Quit whining!!!! I’m a disabled vet, lost my arm. Did three years in Iraq and been blown up, shot and stabbed! Even with my injuries including TBI I persevered. You throwing Graham under the bus and posting his phone # because he couldn’t give you a job is total bullshit. Try being a professional warrior and stop crying about your injuries. I’m proud of mine! Every scare ( my body looks like a road map ) and piece missing from me is a sign of a true warrior and I never quit and I sure as hell will never rant… Read more »

    Bustedupgi – First, as another busted up GI – 25 years jumping out of airplanes as an Infantry Paratrooper (Retired from active duty in 2008), I feel your pain. I was lucky enough to *not* get blown up, but I lost several good friends, and only now, 15 years later, is my body starting to recover enough to have a little bit of life in me. My wife and children are the main benefactors in that, BTW – I still can’t do much, but at least I’m not always holding them back. However, I am confused about your comments that… Read more »

    So you were at Hue in ’68. That would make you at least 70 years old. I am calling BS on your “story.” At the very least you should be thankful for making it out alive. My cousin’s life ended at the age of 21 in Pleiku Province as a combat medic while trying to save the crew of a downed helicopter while under heavy fire. For that his family was thanked by a grateful Nation and he was awarded a Silver Star and a posthumus promotion. I have nothing for you.

    I am not sure what branch of service you were in but it really does not matter. When you were at Hue I was at KheSanh with the 27th Marines. Like you I am disabled (lost my legs) and I went to school after being discharged from the crotch. It’s been very hard to find a job all of my life. Now you are old and disabled you have to ask yourself, who is going to want you? EXACTLY! No one will. No one cares. Only you and what’s left of your family. You know what I mean, don’t you?… Read more »

    You’re about a sad excuse for a Veteran. I as well am I disabled combat vet and amputee with 3 tours to Iraq. I would never blame my country or any of her people for my loss. I raised my hand and joined willingly. Nobody forced me. So why would I attack others for my disabilities? Ridiculous. Not to mention, you sound like you’re off your damn rocker. Don’t blame others for your short comings. You made your own life. It wasn’t given to you that way. I still work 40+ hours a week.

    Over past 20 years I’ve been loyal Ruger customer. I love my stainless 300 Win Mag. I’ve recently looked at PC at my local BIG 5. I have to admit it’s a good looking carbine. However the takedown option does nothing for me. I also do not see that 9 mm or even 40 S&W is a good option for hunting. What is the aim of this model?

    This is the funnest plinking rifle I own. More punch than a .22LR but still affordable to shoot. Good for small varmint hunting. Works great. I like the breakdown because I use it for camping. Small fairly light and uses the same magazines as my side arm. Only one kind of ammo to carry. I paired mine with. Solar powered red-dot and it’s very accurate.

    A friend of mine got M&P mags to work with the Ruger mag well. A small amount of work with a file on the mags is all that is required. The mags still work in the M&P

    I know glock 22 mags will work with 9mm as well, but does the pc carbine 9mm function with glock 22 mags..?

    What exactly makes you think .40 will work in a 9mm barrel

    Matt
    Guest
    Matt

    I think they were referring to using .40 cal mags with 9mms stuffed in. Maybe because they don’t own a glock in 9mm and wants to try the existing owned .40 mags. Even though 9mms fits in the mags, the feed angle would be wider for the .40, so there may be feed issues using 9mms in a .40 mag.

    I am anxious to see the PC 40 S and W carbine appear as I have already the PC 9 mm rifle and I really enjoy shooting it. Along with that I have two Ruger 22 rifles and a Ruger ..223 and a 7.62 x 39. JB

    C’mon guys. 10mm is still too expensive for range day fun. Philosophy of use for pc9. Nice , easy to handle pcc that’s inexpensive to shoot and learn with. Also I’ve tried backpacking this thing and it’s still pretty bulky but fits my covert pack pretty well. With right ammo it’s pretty rowdy. Still wanna try it with can on it but not yet as they are twice the cost of the rifle.

    10mm would be awesome. Theres good deals on 10mm ammo just look. Or get a better job. 10mm is way worth it, build it they will come. God bless

    45 acp and 10 mm come on guys. That would be awesome if you could swap calibers with barrels.

    I have the 9 and absolutely love it it seems like it will cycle anything. I reduced powder charges to see how low I could go and still cycle it’ll cycle with a bullet getting stuck in the barrel below 500 feet per second 147 grain jacketed. now shooting 147 grain lead with 2 grains of Red Dot at 800 feet per second

    I know I’m going off the path here but why in the world would ruger ever stop production and never bring back in it’s original configuration the Mini -14 with the original factory folding stocks they would surely be Rugers biggest selling firearm even outselling rugers version of the companies AR-15 don’t understand why theyve not done so.

    Because it has nothing on all the various different ar15’s that can swap parts etc.

    Midwest Industries sells a nice m lok floating hand guard. I just installed today and it fits like a glove. Looks pretty sweet too. Doesn’t go to the end of the barrel like the new Ruger but is an upgrade to what comes with the older model pc9.
