Magpul M-lok on all 4 sides. The small hand guard on the front was my main complaint about my current PCC9 carbine. Not enough space on the front rail & too close to the sling stud. Seems the new fore-end will allow for a better grip like the 3 gunners use.

I'd love one in .45 to go with my American, and its mags. But yes, a bolt-on front stock with at least key mod or M-lok so we can add rails and all our toys.

I'm really hoping that they sell the new handguard and that it's not half the price of the carbine.

I'm REALLY hoping to see a .45 ACP come out. Glock mags would be a natural but I'd also like to see a 1911 mag adaptor.

Has anyone measured the magwell to see if it's large enough to accept .45 ACP?

I know it's physically large enough but is it large enough WITH the magwell adaptor.

They do, the rail is made by Midwest industries. They are out of stock at my distributor, but once available they will be about $160. Might be cheaper to sell your PC and buy the new model with the rail already installed.

The complete rifle with the factory included rail should be around $550, that is a great deal!!

I like it. If I get one I will stick with 9mm since itís compatible with the Luger.

The two rails are different if you look at them closely.

The .40 cal. I’m happy about. The tacticool looking one with the free floating hand guard, not so much.

My biggest issue with pistol caliber carbines like this is that too me they’re basically expensive toys. They cause us headaches at our range. We have steel at 25, 50 and 100 yards. The steel at 25 and 50 is for rimfire and handguns, and we have a hard time keeping people from shooting it with AR’s. We’ve decided not to let people shoot the closer steel with pistol caliber carbines, as it confuses other shooters who think the carbines are rifles.

When we did allow shooting the 25 and 50 yard swingers with pc carbines, people seemed to waste a lot of expensive ammo blasting away at short range.

I’ve tried out Ruger PC Carbines at the range and have not been all that impressed. Accuracy seems to be lacking- at least with the examples I’ve tried out.

Ruger has found something that sells, and I say more power to them. It’s just not my cup,of tea.

I've fallen for the PCC in the past, and they are indeed fun. But I finally grudgingly admitted to myself that their practicality is lacking. The bullet really won't do a lot more to a target than a handgun will; if you want rifle power, use a rifle caliber.

If you just want a fun plinker to keep your rifle skills from getting rusty, that uses cheap ammo, use a .22LR rifle.

JohnR, I agree. In fact, I would go so far as to say that for most purposes a 10/22 with good ammo is a lot more useful, and even just as effective as a 9mm carbine.

I cast my own bullets and of course I reload. I can shoot 9mm for less than what CCI Mini Mags cost.

The PCC is the 10/22 for adults.

I hope Ruger doesn't forget about us 45 owners...I have no statistical proof of this, but I suspect there are more of us than there are 40 owners.

If they decide to not offer one in 45 I guess I will be forced to get the 9mm (which I would be totally happy with), but I am really hoping for a 45!


Hint Hint Ruger!!!

I was wondering the same thing.

Although I hope never to be shot... if I was and I had a choice, I would rather get hit by a 22lr over any of the normal SD calibers.
