Ruger Announces Six New PC Carbine Models

Sturm, Ruger & Company, Inc. (NYSE-RGR) is excited to introduce six new PC Carbine™ configurations including three free-float handguard models chambered in the popular 9mm Luger and three standard models offered in the highly anticipated .40 S&W chambering. These new PC Carbine models are offered in varying magazine capacity and threaded barrel configurations to ensure multi-state availability.

With improved utility for home defense and competition, the 9mm free-float handguard models feature a hard-coat anodized aluminum handguard with Magpul® M-LOK® accessory attachment slots on all four sides for easy mounting of M-LOK-compatible accessories. The appeal of the popular PC Carbine is further broadened with new models designed to accept the powerful .40 S&W cartridge.

All of these new models boast the hallmark features of the original PC Carbine. Uniquely designed for use with a variety of magazines, the PC Carbine has an easily interchangeable magazine well system that allows the rifle to accept common Ruger® and newer Glock® magazines. The PC Carbine also features a dead blow action with a custom tungsten weight that shortens bolt travel and reduces felt recoil and muzzle rise.

Similar to the popular 10/22 Takedown® rifle, the PC Carbine is designed for 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.

The rifles also feature a reversible magazine release and charging handle to accommodate right- or left-handed shooters. The bolt is machined from heat-treated, chrome-moly steel to ensure strength, structural integrity and durability. The cold hammer-forged, chrome-moly steel barrel with ultra-precise rifling provides exceptional accuracy, longevity and easier cleaning, and some models feature a threaded muzzle to allow for use of standard muzzle accessories.

The accurate sighting system features a barrel-mounted, ghost ring adjustable rear aperture sight and a non-glare, protected blade front sight. The durable, glass-filled nylon synthetic stock features a soft rubber buttpad with spacers to allow the rifle to be adjusted for different sized shooters or varying levels of outerwear.

The PC Carbine ships with the SR-Series™ magazine well installed and an additional magazine well that accepts newer Glock® magazines. A 9mm Ruger American® Pistol magazine well is available separately at

    Put a drum and wood rear stock on it and it would look like a PPSH-41.

    Concur…it looks rather PPSh-ish

    I think it looks more like something from Planet of the Apes

    This is just begging for an integrally suppressed fore end. They’re handy little shooters.

    I love the retro, Soviet look!
    And it’s a take down? Here’s my wallet; just take it.

  6. Uncle Dan says:

    Pleeeeze bring out the MLOK forend model in .40 S&W for those of us with a lot of that left hanging around,

  7. MIke Nomad says:

    Meh. I remember last time: Initially offered in 9mm & 40 S&W, one of the top two requests after the roll-out was a model in 45 ACP. First they said, “Yes,” then they said, “No.” The other top request was the ability to use Glock magazines. They said, “No.” Then the line went away because of “low demand.”

    Well, this time they got it half right…

    It’s look like the russian ppsh… please, make this in 7.62×25 Tokarev! More precise, fast and better range.
