Mine is on order!!!
Put a wooden stock on it and I couldn’t resist any lomger
Put a .45acp barrel or a 10mm barrel on it and I'm your huckleberry.
That's hot! Good score!
Good for Ruger. Offering what people want!!!
Can you some gel or water bottle cases /towels with it and some rem UMC 40 sw JHP's?
I just picked up the 9mm, after giving up hope for a more potent cartridge. I was really hoping for a 10mm. I guess the 9 is at least cheaper to shoot.
Are they crazy?
Comes in a version with a free-floated handguard too.
I still want it to take S&W M&P mags either 9mm or .40. I don’t know why no one has made different mag adapters yet
looking at the pictures of the free float version it looks like the barrel is touching the hand guard, kinda kills the free float concept.
About 5 years ago I made the switch from Glocks to M&Ps purely based on the triggers. Personal preference purely, but I am much more accurate with the stock M&P trigger.
Maybe ruger won’t make a S&W mag well adapter because it’s their main American competition? ... but after market makers might???
Let’s face it —-I’ll probably get one of these Ruger PCs either way. But for now ,I’ll stick with my Hi-point 995 as magazine commonality isn’t an option for me yet... plus I like how the hi-point has the mag well In The pistol grip.
I love PCCs -but I’m not even sure why since they are the same weight as an AR for way less firepower ...
Looks like thats only a 9MM option anyway.
Im wondering if anyone makes a trit front site yet?
Im intending on leaving this w favtory peeps.
Let us know how you like it when it comes! I see myself getting one soon as well, but probably in 9mm. I've just never really cared for my AR, but I loved the PC Carbine the first time I held it at a gun show. It just felt "right."
I love the AR. Its simply not as acceptable for my application. Besides the compactness and break down ability, trump my AR. Sure I know that I could fit the AR with the ability of quick take down but for near the cost of this firearm. Ill take the redundant firearm opposed to piling $$ into another one that does the same thing but might be banned in some areas.
Ergonomics are all with the AR. Most anyone spending time with one would agree. But the Ruger PC will fill a nitch I feel needs filling!
Bank on my thread about it once I get one!
+1 on the 10mm
I just knew they would offer this in another caliber. I'd say .45 and 10mm are not that far off. And yes, let's get some more magazine adaptors going for different popular handgun brands. So far,my PC 9mm is doing very well with a Glock 19. Really like it..
If they offered that with a wood stock it would look like a modern day Suomi or PPSh.
Now to convince myself that I really don't need one, but sure would like to have it..
fortunately my favorite local shop doesn't show it on their website, at least not yet
I too would be more interested in a .45 acp
I think you will like it. Mine makes a dandy truck gun...stick it in a Ruger 10/22 TD case, have plenty of pockets for spare G19/17/33 mags...ammo...all set. Nice lil carbine for what it is. Would not wanna go brown bear hunting with it,but I find it a useful and handy weapon.
Will it fit in the case with a red dot scope attached?
If only they'd make one in. 308 with BAR adaptors I'd get one.
That's a good question. I honestly don't know about that fitting with the PC carbine. I do have a truglo red Dot on the 10/22 which does fit very well... I wish I had an answer though to you question...
I might have found a awesome travel case for it! Im gonna stop tomorrow and grab one. I measured a PC Carbine today. Looks good as long as no inserts are in butt.
Harbor Freight hard case with enx handel & Wheels!! Think roll on case for overnight travel!! 90$
I wasted no time in casting up some fodder... Ill have another mouth to feed soon enough!
what does that weigh? Does it attract attention?
Whats the application ? and why was 40 the decision to purchase over 9mm?
Can hunt deer with .40 in my state. Would make a handy little deer rifle.
Look a little closer. I think what you're seeing as the barrel touching the hand guard, is actually the barrel to the front sight base.
Thinking about this more I want a non takedown version with a conventional peep sight location. A pistol version like the ruger braced charger would be cool
Ruger PC carbine OAL : 34.37"
Standard AR15 w/16" barrel and telescoping stock OAL: 35" (when fully extended) 32.5" (collapsed.)
AR front take down pin: 5 seconds or less to make gun break down into 2 pieces.
Agreed, but I live and work in the liberal cess pool known as New England. "AR"s are "assault Weapons" here they are Illegal in Mass NY and NJ...places I'm in weekly.
Plus the PC is a Take Down and its measurements are just under 20" for butt and just over 17 for barrel assembly.
Don't get me wrong I greatly prefer the AR, but the world I'm in the PC is accepted where the AR will have me living off the government in a cell.
The travel case is a new one form harbor Freight in there Apache line its the 5800. Think old school Airline stewardess. It is approx 9'' x 13'' x 21'' with two wheels and a extendable handle. I can make up a essentials bug out kinda kit and have the rifle locked and with me everywhere.
40 over 9, cause that's how I roll. With a handgun defensive caliber, bigger is always better, ten times outta nine.
Technically, we could use the 9MM here... But I like the way you think!
I have a whole list of accessories here...
Im hoping to find and not have to make a trit front site.
I cast up some 165g deep HP bullets then powder coated them my “pool bottom” Blue
what's going to be your carry load in 40 for the carbine?
Those are awesome.
I was wondering when someone would come out with accessories to trick out the PCC... Thanks for link guys! Looks like some useful kit right there...
I dont know yet! Guns decision mot mine!! Gotta shoot and see what it likes!
Im partial to HSP & Gold Dots. But bet your last dollar my own cast powder coated will get thoroughly tested!!
If I were going to get a new PC I’d like one in 10mm, (I already own an older PC4GR in .40 S&W). Of the two currently in production the 9mm with the Glock adapter would more likely attract me. It would not only allow for less expensive but still capable 9mm, but also allow me the use of my current Glock magazines.
I have no plans to get rid of my current PC4GR or the Ruger P94 that I also own, but finding magazines for them are not the easiest (or cheapest) task. So I’ve been trying to carefully husband and care for those magazines I do own. And to make matters worse many of the available magazines for the pair are the ten round Clinton era magazines.
The new Ruger PC’s keep getting more interesting!
@Cwlongshot what is the purpose of powder coating bullets?
Powder coating is simply a bullet jacket.
Lubed cast bullets are smoky and many ranges will not allow there use.
Powder coating has very very small effect on bullets ability to expand. Its a tough elastic polymer. So instead of needing “hard cast” to effect leading. A PC bullet will resist leading allowing for sorfer bullets that are better likly to expand a bit.
They are safe in glocks
They allow high velocities
You size after coating and its quick and easy.
Plus it looks great and allows instant identification of a given loading.
@Cwlongshot Thanks for posting those harbor freight cases, what a great deal at a fraction of what I have paid for a pelican case.
Also - I love your powder coated cast rounds —- how involved is that process? I’ve cast my own bullets before but I just coat them with Alox.
It’s really pretty easy
Get an old toaster oven
By the powder on eBay or online it’s about $10-$20 a pound
Your new Cool Whip container through about a teaspoon in there and then a handful of bullets maybe 50 Swirling around for 30 or 40 seconds to create static electricity in the powder sticks to the bullet Then you got to get some nonstick foil or parchment paper some guys use a silicone cooking cloth the idea is something that’s not gonna stick And you bake it to the minute facture‘s recommendations which is usually about 20 minutes at 400° But you want to get a good thermometer because the thermostat on the oven is way off they all are After 20 minutes to pull them out and chuck them in a bucket of water Then pull them out and dry them on a cloth then go size them to the diameter you want or need go shoot them and have fun !
This thread is getting long.
Did someone get one of these yet, or are we still in the planning to stages?
Really interested in accuracy compared to the nine at distance.
As of last Sunday two different distributors had it listed but none in stock.
So I dont have one.... YET.
I hope it's not as elusive as Henry's single shots were. Or Ruger's RPR after the first batch was released.
I doubt it there is two or three versions offered.
