Hello from Saint Petersburg, FL

I'm new to the forum. I just got a Ruger PC Carbine takedown. I had ordered it a day or so before things started getting crazy. Then the LGS started saying that they didn't know when it was going to come in. Once things started getting nuts, the guy at the LGS was slammed, but he still kept me updated. Fortunately I had ordered it before people started panic buying, and it came in today.

My new PC Carbine had a super tight receiver assembly, and I couldn't remove it to switch over to the Glock mag insert. So I did a Google search for the problem. That brought me here. I guess a few folks complained about the problem, but then it mysteriously resolved itself, and so no solutions were ever mentioned. I figured out how to get the receiver assembly loose, so I figured I'd register and share what I learned. Short answer: remove the mag, pull the bolt back, check for rounds, then let it go...repeat a couple of times and the receiver assembly comes loose. I guess they press them in pretty hard at the factory. Now if I could only somebody made a wood stock for this piece....

Greetings Lamar! When things get back to normal, I will be look into getting a PC Carbine myself, though I live in the town where Ruger makes them, so it might not be too hard for me.
