Practical and versatile, the Ruger Pistol Caliber Carbine is ideal for any shooter, from novice to experienced. Built to excel in a number of roles from plinking or competitions to home or personal defense, the PC Carbine™ is highly configurable and compact, making it the perfect portable companion to match with many pistols.
The Ruger PC Carbine in 9mm features interchangeable magazine wells for use of common Ruger® and Glock® magazines. Other features include a 16.12" threaded, fluted barrel, and a black synthetic stock. Easy takedown enables 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.
Uniquely designed for use with a variety of magazines, the PC Carbine features an easily interchangeable magazine well system that allows the rifle to accept common Ruger® and Glock® magazines. This new rifle also features a dead blow action with a custom tungsten dead blow 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.Firearm Features
It is such a good RC. The iron sights are great. Pop a red dot on there if needed. Little to no recoil. The break down is easy, and it stays zeroed. Too bad about the rise in 9mm prices.
Now most fun rifle I own
Shot this carbine straight from the box, just like I always do to test quality. FMJ, JHP. JSP loads in Brass, Aluminum & Steel cases from 6 manufactures all ran perfectly. Got to splatting beverage cans filled with water from 50 yards fairly quickly, and with mixed ammo in the same mag. This is a great companion to a 9mm Luger pistol, as it increases both the power and range of the round. Also have the Ruger 77/357 rifle to dramatically boost the power of the .357 Magnum cartridge. Love this gun, and it is 100% American Made: that matters.
I had been looking at this rifle since its release was announced last year. It finally became available for rent at my local range, and after shooting 50 rounds through it, I really wanted to add one to my collection. Sportsman's Outdoor Superstore had it as a pre-order item. So I got in line expecting to have to wait for a couple months. I was really surprised when I got an email 11 days later saying my order had been fulfilled! Two days after that I picked it up from my FFL.
The first thing I did when I got it home was to add another spacer to the stock to accommodate my long arms. The next thing I did was to move the magazine release to the right side because I shoot rifles left-handed. I also installed the Glock mag-well adapter and a reasonably-priced red-dot sight: A Bushnell Custom, also from Sportsman's. My wife and I took it to the range the next day. What a nice, soft-shooting, rifle! We shot over a hundred rounds of Federal American Eagle 115 FMJ without a single issue. I took it to the range again a week later and shot 60 rounds of the same ammo as last time and also a box of Winchester NATO 124 FMJ rounds. I really couldn't tell the difference shooting the hotter ammo I can in a pistol. One of the NATO rounds did jam and couldn't be chambered after that. I'll chalk that up to the rifle not being fully broken-in yet.
This is a really sweet shooting rifle! Very accurate and seems to be quite reliable. I noticed that this rifle tends to eject the spent casings somewhat forward, which I wasn't expecting. It's actually kind of nice because the shells would land in front of the shooting table and I never got hit with one bouncing off the wall of the lane. I don't know if they all do that, but mine does. Something else I noticed is that the barrel cools down quicker since its fluted. Its pretty easy to clean because you can disconnect the barrel from the rest of the firearm.
All-in-all, I highly recommend this carbine.
Ordered on April 4th and received on the 12th. Not much more can be said about this rifle. Ruger corrected a mistake they made when they first came out with a pistol carbine all those years ago when it comes to mag usage. Hopefully the aftermarket field comes up with a wood stock but that's just my desire. Other than that 50rds of my reloads and no issues as of yet.
This gun was back ordered a few weeks ago and I assumed I wouldn't see it for quite some time. Got an email on a Monday that it was on its way and I had it by Friday. Had it my gun room for another few weeks until I got an opportunity to take it out, today! It was worth the wait. This is a kick in the pants to shoot! Used my Glock mags flawlessly. Two Korean 33 round mags also functioned with no issues at all. Thank you SOSS for getting this for me. Looking at a 12 gauge for my next purchase.
Was never too impressed with my Ruger P95. It's more like a war club than a pistol. Liked my Glock 19 a lot more so when I read about the new Ruger PC9 carbine and its ability to shoot using Glock Mags and I was interested. Backordered mine so was surprised when Sportsman's Outdoor Superstore emailed me notice it had been shipped just a few days later. Arrived at my FFL in pristine condition. Didn't even bother to clean it before shooting but did mount a cheapo Feyachi Reflex sight under $20 on EBay then took it to the range. Using WWB and Rem UMC 115 gr standard ammo every shot was dead on and the gun functioned flawlessly. Smooth trigger and very little recoil. But make no mistake this little weapon is a beast. My Urban Assault Rifle. Best $ I've spent on a firearm in a long time and totally worth it.
I got mine a few days ago. Took it to the range after swapping out the adapters. It will only use Glock mags. Flawless performance, accurate, and fun. I put a TRS-25 red dot on it. My new favorite gun.
Got mine a week ago. Strapped on a Deltapoint Pro/American Defense QD. No co-witness but easy off to access the irons sights, which incidentally are as well designed as every other feature SR packed into this beauty. Twisted on a Si-Co Omega 9k, Snapped in 17 Rd Glock mag with PP 158 grain subs....Get outta DODGE! Accurate. Fantastic trigger. Don't forget a quick twist of the wrist converts it to backpack or bug-out bag size! Ruger once again hits it out of the park with the PC-9 Carbine. And you thought you went overboard with the Glock mag stash...SOSS-No kudos needed...you know how I feel about you just by my order history. Thank you.
What else can you say? The rifle performed flawlessly. Well constructed and thought out. Used the integrated Picatinny rail to mount a riser and red dot sight. The threaded barrel allowed for a short compact muzzle brake compensator, more for appearance than function. The rifle has no real felt recoil. Great trigger, has molded swivel studs to attach a sling. Used an extra SR9C mag with no problems. Very easy take down of barrel/forend assembly from the action. It is a real pleasure to shoot.
