Ruger this week delivered on a new Chassis Model version of their 9mm pistol caliber PC Carbine that allows the use of standard AR pistol grips and collapsible buttstocks.
In addition to the new glass-filled polymer chassis system, which ships with a six-position, telescoping, Magpul MOE buttstock installed, other additional features include a flared magwell, ergonomic pistol grip with extended trigger reach, and a factory-installed Picatinny top rail.
As with standard PC Carbine variants, the new Chassis Model comes standard with an interchangeable magazine well system to accept common Ruger and Glock magazines, and a reversible magazine release and charging handle to accommodate right- or left-handed shooters.
The little carbine, which has an overall length of between 32.25 and 35.5-inches due to the adjustable stock, also includes a simple takedown mechanism. The 16.12-inch cold hammer-forged chrome-moly steel barrel, in most models, carries 1/2x28TPI threads.
Speaking of “most models,” the new PC is also available in a pair of 10-round state compliant models for those behind the lines– one with an adjustable stock and threaded barrel, and the other with a fixed stock and non-threaded barrel.
MSRP is $799, which is about $150 higher than the standard PC Carbine with synthetic furniture and a fixed stock.
