Ruger recently announced the release of three new configurations of its popular Pistol Caliber Carbine series. The new PC Carbine Chassis model adds more features to aid in accuracy, fit and shooting ease.
The PC Carbine Chassis comes with a glass-filled polymer chassis system. It includes a six-position, telescoping Magpul MOE buttstock. It also includes a flared magwell for improved magazine reloading. Meanwhile, an ergonomic pistol grip with extended trigger reach provides comfort. A factory-installed, barrel-mounted Picatinny rail enables various sight setups. Ruger also makes a fixed stock, non-threaded barrel version of the PC Carbine Chassis model.
Ruger PC Carbine Chassis Features
The new, glass-filled polymer chassis system allows the use of standard AR pistol grips and collapsible buttstocks. The adjustable ghost ring rear sight of the original PC Carbine makes way for a factory-installed, barrel-mounted Picatinny rail. These new models utilize a CNC-machined, hard-coat anodized aluminum handguard. Magpul M-LOK accessory attachment slots provide easy mounting on all four sides.
These models also maintain several hallmark features of the original PC Carbine, including an easily interchangeable magazine well system. The system accommodates both common Ruger and newer Glock magazines. The dead blow action with a custom tungsten weight that shortens bolt travel reduces felt recoil and muzzle rise. A reversible magazine release and charging handle accommodates both left- or right-handed shooters. The simple takedown mechanism allows for quick separation of the barrel/forend assembly from the action. Finally, a heat-treated, chrome-moly steel bolt, cold hammer-forged chrome-moly steel barrel, and 1/2-inch x 28 thread pattern round out the features.
The PC Carbine Chassis model ships with the SR-Series magazine well installed. An additional magazine well accepts Glock magazines. A 9mm Luger Ruger American Pistol magazine comes separate at shopruger.com. The platform comes in three configurations: two adjustable stock models, with 10- or 17-round magazine; and a fixed-stock model with a 10-round magazine.
