Based on the company’s popular PC Carbine, Ruger’s new feature-rich PC Charger pistol just hit the market.

Using a 6.5-inch threaded barrel and a glass-filled polymer chassis system that allows for the use of standard AR pistol grips, the takedown PC Charger is 16.5-inches long overall. Hitting the scales at 5.2-pounds, it comes with an integrated rear Picatinny rail for pistol braces.

The Charger uses a hard-coat anodized aluminum handguard with Magpul M-LOK-slots at the 3, 6, and 9 o’clock positions and comes with a factory-installed handstop.

The receiver includes an integrated Picatinny-style top rail and is Type III hard-coat anodized for maximum durability. There is also a rear-mounted rail for braces.

Like the standard PC Carbine, the PC Charger ships with an interchangeable magazine well for Ruger SR-or Security-9 series mags, or Glock 9mm double-stacks. For those with a Ruger American pistol, you can get a separate mag well for that as well for a little extra coin.

The PC Charger ships with a single SR-series mag as well as tools for disassembly of the chassis system and charging handle removal. For those behind the lines, Ruger also offers a state-compliant model with a 10-round mag.

MSRP on the Ruger PC Charger is $799.

But how does it shoot? Beyond Seclusion and The Firearm Guy have been testing the gun over the past few weeks and have their thoughts, below.
