PC Carbine in 5.7

Are there any hints or rumors that this is in the works?

It kind of seems like a no brainer, given the success of the Ruger-57 pistol.

5.7 works fine in blowback guns. It looks like the magwell of the PC Carbine is long enough to adapt.

It would make a fine HD or truck gun.

Totally agree! I posted the same question a while ago. As a combo for the new 5.7 Pistol, it seems like a perfect match. 20 round magazines for both the pistol and Carbine seems like a win, win. I donít plan on adding this caliber, but for those who buy the new pistol, think it is a great idea!

Not going to happen.

The 5.7 has a oal of 1.594". The .45 ACP is 1.270 and I was told it would take a complete redesign of the gun to accommodate the .45 ACP.
