U.S.A.-(Ammoland.com)- Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) is excited to introduce the new PC Charger, a 9mm pistol based on Ruger's popular PC Carbine Chassis model. The PC Charger boasts an abundance of features including a 6.5″ barrel; an integrated rear Picatinny rail that allows for mounting of picatinny-style braces; a glass-filled polymer chassis system; a flared magazine well for improved magazine reloading capabilities; and an ergonomic pistol grip with extended trigger reach.

The glass-filled polymer chassis system allows for the use of standard AR pistol grips. These models utilize a CNC-machined, hard-coat anodized aluminum handguard with Magpul M-LOK-compatible slots at the 3, 6, and 9 o'clock positions for easy mounting of M-LOK-compatible rails and accessories. The 6 o'clock position of the handguard features a factory-installed handstop for secure support-hand placement.

These models also maintain several hallmark features of the original PC Carbine, including an easily interchangeable magazine well system that allows the pistol to accept Ruger Security-9 and SR9 magazines, as well as Glock double-stack magazines; a dead blow action with a custom tungsten weight that shortens bolt travel and reduces felt recoil and muzzle rise; a reversible magazine release and charging handle to accommodate right- or left-handed use; a simple takedown mechanism to allow for quick separation of the barrel/forend assembly from the action; a durable heat-treated, chrome-moly steel bolt; a cold hammer-forged chrome-moly steel barrel with ultra-precise rifling and a 1/2″ x 28 threaded barrel

The PC Charger models ship with the SR-Series and Security-9 pistol magazine well installed and an additional magazine well that accepts newer Glock magazines. A 9mm Luger Ruger American Pistol magazine well is available separately at ShopRuger.com.

The standard model features a 17-round capacity, and an additional 10-round, state compliant model also is available.

Michael Bane recently got together with Ruger in Pennsylvania and gave us a good look at the PC Charger on his program. My take-away after seeing his show is that the PCC is a sweet addition to the growing availability of pistol caliber rifle types that are for personal and home defense.
As for now I still maintain my G34 will serve me as well or better. As for those who would like to see it in 300 AAC, why not add an upper to your AR?

I think they’re for folks who are interested in the work to become proficient with the handgun.
Im also a fan of the g34 and its a reacher for me because i work on running it well.my wife on the other hand isnt interested in pistol practice but could pick up a brace pistol and hit way better than a handgun
