U.S.A.-( Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE: RGR) is excited to introduce the lightweight, compact Ruger® LC Carbine™ chambered in 5.7x28mm. The compact nature of this carbine owes to its bolt-over-barrel design and feeding through the grip. The Ruger LC Carbine has a full 16.25″ barrel, features a reversible side-folding stock adjustable for length of pull, and is compatible with Picatinny rail-mounted accessory stocks. The stock and Rapid Deploy adjustable sights can be folded for storage.

Utilizing the same magazines and controls as the innovative Ruger-5.7™ pistol, the LC Carbine is the ultimate range companion. Even when using typical 40 grain 5.7x28mm jacketed bullets, this high-performing carbine’s felt recoil is comparable to a .22 LR. Like the Ruger-5.7 pistol, the LC Carbine utilizes Ruger’s safe, reliable and proven Secure Action™ fire-control mechanism that combines a protected internal hammer with a bladed-safety trigger that has a short, smooth pull, clean break and positive reset. The fluted, nitride-coated alloy steel barrel is durable and lightweight and allows for the attachment of standard muzzle accessories.

Ruger President and CEO, Chris Killoy, took time out at the range with the new LC Carbine and says, “I can’t describe how ergonomic the LC Carbine feels in your hands. You have to experience it on the range to really appreciate how it balances and moves. The controls are intuitive and conveniently located, and the lack of felt recoil makes it hard to put down.”

Saving my money, as I need this and lots of ammo. Will go great with my Ruger 57.


This is pretty cool I guess..

Wild Bill

What is a “… its bolt-over-barrel design …”?


Maybe that old PWS design? I forgot what it’s called. The Para TTR uses it… There’s some others, too….


How much?

Basic detail…


MSRP $979. Hopefully the actual retail will fall around $700. We’ll see.


Right now the asking price is over $1,100.00. I think I’ll wait. Two years from now, when a thinking person takes over from Chairman Joe, I expect to see under $700.
