NRA Gun of the Week: Ruger PC Carbine

posted on February 10, 2018

There are plenty of good reasons to own a pistol-caliber carbine in the same chambering as your everyday carry gun—its ability to accept the same magazines chief among them. For the 9 mm Ruger PC Carbine, this means that right out of the box it accepts mags from the Ruger Security-9 and SR9 pistols, but buyers are also supplied with an adaptor for the ubiquitous Glock 9 mm mags. Other notable features on this takedown carbine are an adjustable length of pull (three 1/2-inch spacers included); a 33 percent glass-filled nylon stock; CNC aircraft-grade aluminum receiver; integrated Picatinny rail; a trigger group comprised of 10/22 components and, also like the 10/22, an easy takedown mechanism. There are many more features and much more to be learned about this exciting addition to the Ruger catalog, and you can see them in this week's NRA Gun of the Week video above.
