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.

Ruger makes some of the most under-rated firearms in the business. I don’t know why they made a 40, but 10mm would sell even less.

For all the 10mm heads out there, there really isn’t that big a difference between .40 S&W and 10mm Auto. I have compiled data off of Ballistics By The Inch (BBTI) that shows 10mm only gets you 100-150 fps more than .40 S&W at either 4″ or 16″ barrel lengths: http://oi64.tinypic.com/14cgmrl.jpg

I own 7 ruger firearms. Various rifles and a couple pistols. Just got a new (my first) takedown a few weeks ago. Love it! Man is it sweet!They are all excellent firearms, finely built, and reward me with high precision fun quite often. Ruger makes a top of the line weapon. Up there with the best. Also proudly American made. I see the disparaging comments here about quality and performance, they are wrong. Ruger is a cut above the rest. Not quite winchester but damn close.

Don’t say all are excellent… I bought my dad an SR9… I liked their rifles… Wasn’t impressed with the LC9S I had, but bought it anyways… The first time we went to the range and I shot his pistol, I turned to him and apologized… I felt so bad for buying him that for his birthday… I offered for him to trade it in and buy something else… It’s a step above FisherPrice… I don’t know about their revolvers… They seem well made, but their pistols seem to be built out of recycled soda cans… I still really like their… Read more »

Ruger builds geat bolt rifles, revolvers and semi auto 22’s that’s about it.
I’ve had about every make of weapon over many years of collecting and shooting. I value Ruger for what they are good at, given I haven’t bought or used any of their new offerings as I swore them off years ago but the 10 22 is an awesome little rifle and is easy to upgrade.

Offering a .40 is just prolonging that chambering from its inevitable demise. I’d be happy to see a 45, though.

Grant
Guest

The .40S&W isn’t going anywhere. There are a ton of older pistol cartridges that are still around despite being used less than they used to be.

Also, the .40S&W is still a versatile round capable of shooting light and fast bullets or heavy and slow bullets equally well.

A 40sw carbine will kill a bear or hog with ease. And I killed a dear with a Kahr PM40 before.
10mm will obviously punch the animal harder, but the 40 (especially out of rifle barrel) will do the trick just fine in a self defense encounter. I’d like to see the Carbine in 357sig for actual hunting purposes. The 357sig will hold velocity at distances that 10/40 won’t and even 9mm would struggle. Then my rifle can share ammo with my pistol.

I will be buying it. I like 40 over 9mm or 45. 10mm is simply stupid to me. 44mag…hmmm I would tempted, but not really. At that point buy an AR15 in 6.8 300BLK or good old 5.56.

This rifle is on the right track as a emergency vehicle back up rifle. Breaks down stows well. Uses Ruger and Glock mags. But if one we’re in grizzly bear country, a 10 mm would be the caliber to have running Buffalo bore ammo. A 10 mm in carbine length barrel would have much more velocity and down behind it. I would not be to keen on using a 9mm caliber in bear country, you may find it some were in the southern region of the human anatomy. Against a bad guy it would do just fine for home defense

For everyone wondering “why .40?” probably to appeal to law enforcement agencies which use a lot of .40. Be nice if they had .45 though, I’d get one, especially with that sweet heat shield.

44mag would thrill me, 45ACP much preferable to 40 S&W.

Sorry you have had bad luck with Ruger. I have not had that problem. 2 x Super Blackhawk, No. 1, P90, 10/22 and they are all pretty accurate. The No. 1 is precision.

I do no own this carbine and won’t unless in 44 or 45.

Brian
Guest
Brian

.44 Mag would be too much for a blowback action, plus there would have to be proprietary mags and a new receiver design for the longer, rimmed cartridge.

Lance Headrick
Guest
Lance Headrick

44mag TOO MUCH for blow back???? Nonsense.

They previously made a blowback 44mag carbine. 44mag too much for blow back…don’t shoot a Desert Eagle then 44 Mag or 50 AE

They already built a rotary magazine, 44mag carbine.

Having said all that; it would take major mods to fit a 44 into Ruger PCC.

William
Guest
William

Dude, what are you talking about? The Desert Eagle is a rotating bolt action, it’s not straight blow back. A straight blowback .44 pistol would have devastating recoil, if not outright harmful. It would also probably ruin the firearm.

Right on! My PC9 combined with the Glock 19 extended mag is awesome. Never skips a beat. Taken down, fits perfectly in my backpack.

Sorry for the typo, recently purchased a RPR, not rmr. Gun is junk,(see prior post). Bought a mini-14 a few years ago. Also junk. If you just what to pull the trigger and have it go bang, buy Ruger. If you want to be able to shoot what you aim at, buy something better. I learned. NO MORE JUNK RUGER GARBAGE FOR ME

I have to agree. Mini 14 over priced and not a great perfomance. Anything ruger doesnt apeal to me i was exited to see these until i realized more over pricing is it worth it? High point makes a carbine half the price and preforms well

I am happy that High Point what uses a firearm in your price range. Seriously doubt that you have ever owned a Ruger. For over 40 years I have been purchasing Firearms including Ruger and find that Bruegger’s pricing is very reasonable. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion of course. I am just happy that both of us have the choice to purchase what we wish to. Hopefully that will continue to be the case.

I bought a mini 14 about 6 years ago, by far the most reliable rifle I own. Accurate as far as my eye can take a ethical shot, shoots any and all ammo I fed through it, I clean it about every thousand rounds or so. I also have 2 10/22s, a gp 100 in .357, a lc9 and a Lcr x. The pc9 is my next purchase, I love all my Rugers.

Not that i need to explain,but, qualified expert in the military, master firearms instructor for the PD, 1 of 2 snipers on the swat team. Believe me, i can do my job behind the trigger. If the firearm is built to be sold at Walmart, like Rugers are, they are junk. Anyone that wants to burn money on a piece of garbage mini 14 or RPR, let me know. Neither will hit the same spot twice

Still waiting for more magazine compatibility. I don’t own a Glock or Ruger pistol. I would like to see Beretta 92, Sig 226, or Cz75b magazine capable. Until then I will keep using my Kel Tec Sub 2000. With CZ mag catch it’ll use S&W m&p, Sig 226, and Cz75b mags.
I have been waiting since Ruger came out with this rifle. I’m beginning to think that they don’t want my money.

Arman75
Guest
Arman75

Beretta 92???? Sig p226???? CZ75?????? What do you think this is, the 80’s???? The sig p226 maybe, but Ruger is most likely only going to make this gun with mag wells that fits newer popular pistol magazines, not old dinosaurs. I have a Kel-tec 9mm carbine that takes Beretta 92 mags, but I bought it in 2002. I don’t have a Beretta 92, but at that time MidwayUSA was selling Mecgar mags for the 92 for $8 a piece.

So I guess that I am a old 80’s guy with my cz 75 , beretta 92, and a Sig. I have the same gun and I would like ruger to do the same. I hate glock and will never update to a piece glock. That said Ruger please make the plastic mag change to have more sales of you very find rifle.

I myself own a fair amount of Ruger. SP101, P94, 10/22’s of course, and my most recent is the sr1911 cmd talo Navy seal edition. I have shot 5k dollar 1911’s and my Talo Ruger shoots as good as any of them. It’s truly a smooth shooting, accurate as the operator, fine piece of American craftsmanship. I don’t get it when I see comments from people saying their Ruger experience has been junk etc. I guess I’ve been lucky, but for the performance and reliability they have given me, I trust my life to any of them.

I have a Ruger PC Carbine. The MCarbo springs I put in it reduced the trigger pull down to 1 pound, 6 ounces average. I’d really like to see somebody like Magpul introduce an aftermarket stock for the PC Carbine. As far as the 10mm goes, I’m not so sure we’ll see that right away. Perhaps Ruger learned their lesson when they tried to make a decent 10/22 in .22WMR. This may be why we are seeing a .40 S&W instead of the much desired 10mm. Having said that, I certainly would love one to go with my Glock 20… Read more »

NEAL, At what distance, 50 feet. My RMR groups like a 12 gauge at 100 yds., target should look like one hole at 100 yds. When smith took gun apart all stamped parts filled with burrs. 1 screw on forend hand tight, 1 on rail half out. Nothing torqued to their own specs. Action block out of line. JUNK OUT OF BOX. Not much better now. Wish i could get my money back.

“Target should look like one hole at a hundred yards”
No firearm, ever, has the kind of accuracy where you’ll shoot through the same hole everytime. You can get a neat, ragged hole, but never a target that you shoot a box of ammo into and it looks like one shot was placed. Give me a break.

460 Rowland, this way you can shoot 45 Supers, and 45 ACP + P. 45 Supers are just about the same power as full power 10mm loads

Boomer
Guest
Boomer

45 super alone surpasses 10mm but my standard load for the 460 Rowland is 185 gr bullet at 1550 fps at 987ftlbs which is roughly a mid load 44 mag level.

I’ve converted 2 1911s and am considering doing my XD. I love that caliber! Also love the 45 super probably moreso as it doesn’t require a compensator.
