Now if they would only make one in 45acp they would have a WINNER.

after looking at the video, my first (perhaps only) complaint is similar to my issues with the charger, its just a funny grip/shooting style, too small to hold like a rifle, too small to hold like a pistol.

I've always had a little bit of interest in the charger, just because it looked nifty, and I have a boatload of 10/22 mags so it seemed like a cheap pickup since I wouldn't have to add $100 worth of mags to the arsenal.

I'm not sure this would appeal to me, i'm still waiting to get my first pcc as it is, I just haven't yet pulled the trigger on the purchase (pun intended), but when I get around to it I think i'll stick with the rifle version to pair it with my sr9.

It has limitations as it comes from the factory. These type of firearms really shine with a brace or as a SBR. Of course, a suppressor just makes it more fun!

I would want it with a brace and add my can to it. Fun plinker that's relatively affordable to shoot

I'm glad I didn't hoard toilet paper. I can use that money to buy this gun.

Agreed. For now I'll just have to enjoy my Hi Point 4595 in a High Tower Armory bullpup stock with 20 round Redball mags.

Like the carbine I think they will sell quite a few.

this is definitely making me consider a more traditional AR-9. I do wish they would have went a little longer with the barrel/hand guard. Between this and then new magpul backpacker stock for the original PC Carbine, we definitely have some cool stuff coming for this platform.

jburks, thanks for the very good link. Makes it hard to ignore this new offering from Ruger. I know it is not a 45 but this in 9mm maybe something I could live with. Will wait to see what comes out of this after we get some good data or reports from the Ruger fanbase. I wish Ruger all the best on this one.
*One good thing all the SR9 magazines I have will get a little more range time.
*I sent a email to Ruger for a 45 version but will not hold my breath.

I wouldn't hold my breath on the .45 ACP. It would take a complete new design to accommodate the .45 ACP.

Don't get me wrong, I'd have burn marks on my butt from my wallet coming out so fast if it were offered in a .45 ACP.

I've put myself on a waiting list. $654.

I'd love to own one, but this would be considered an AW in my state. Now if Ruger sold the separate components or Brownells, Volquartsen, and Kidd had aftermarket Receivers and bolts like the 10/22. I could build an AOW or "Other" version of the weapon with a 12.5 barrel, brace, and VFG.

As soon as it is available in .40 I am buying one. That just blew my mind. Thank you Ruger.

Same thought for me, for 45acp with 1911 mags...

Pretty neat I guess but what I really yearn for is a PC Carbine or Pistol in a non-takedown version as is offered in the .22 Charger. The takedown feature adds cost, complexity, and weight which isn't necessary or desirable especially in the Pistol.
All just my opinion of course.

I doubt you'll see it. It's just not possible to do with the current design.
