The Ruger PC CARBINE is an autoloading rifle chambered for the 9mm Luger (Parabellum) cartridge. The PC CARBINE is “blowback” operated and uses standard Ruger SR9 pistol magazines. 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. Dead blow action features a custom tungsten dead blow weight that shortens bolt travel and reduces felt recoil and muzzle rise. Bolt is machined from heat treated, chrome-moly steel to ensure strength, structural integrity and durability.
The Ruger PC Carbine includes interchangeable magazine wells for use of common Ruger and Glock magazines. Ships with SR-Series and Security-9 pistol magazine well installed and an additional magazine well accepting Glock magazines is included. The reversible magazine release and reversible charging handle support ambidextrous use or one-handed control manipulation while maintaining a proper firing grip. A cold hammer-forged, chrome-moly steel barrel with ultra-precise rifling provides exceptional accuracy and longevity. The heavy contour barrel provides consistent accuracy, while barrel fluting sheds unnecessary weight and allows for quick handling. The soft rubber buttpad with spacers allows the rifle to be properly sized for different shooters or varying levels of outerwear or defensive gear (three, 1/2" spacers included).
