PCC Recommendations

Recommended Posts

I've read the "Diving into the PCC Pool" thread but my question is a bit different so forgive me for starting a new thread on what seems to be the same topic.  

 

Background:  I'm a casual PCC shooter and shoot a monthly local Steel Challenge match and a couple of steel plate matches a year.   I'm not good but not terrible either and shoot for enjoyment.  I have no illusions of ever making master and at my age (76) major improvement isn't real likely. 

 

My current PCC is a Ruger PC Carbine set up with the Glock mag well, 33-round Glock magazines, a Taccom 2-chamber compensator and a Vortex Venom red dot on a bmiller rear sight replacement pic rail adapter.  I enjoy it a lot but wonder if something better might be fun to have.  Not essential but fun.  Money is a bit of an object but since iIve owned a Les Baer 1911, a $2000 gun isn't a show stopper.

 

So, my question is which 9 mm PCC's to consider?  I do NOT want to build one from parts, I want to buy a complete "turn-key" carbine which is why I started this new thread.

 

I gather the JP Enterprises GMR-15 is the current class act and I'm considering it but any other good candidates?  I'd like to stay with a Glock mag well but that isn't essential.

 

Thanks for your recommendations.

If you want to buy a competitive gun that will need zero tuning, JP is the time-proven front runner.

 

For most of us, we enjoyed the building process as much as we enjoy shooting it.

Sounds like you have something that works, but want another toy that you won't have to mess with and just enjoy.  JP would be good.  You'll get support. 

They are heavy though...

My vote
Nordic Components AR9
It also has interchangeable mag. assemblies. I paid $1250
The trigger is a polished milspec.
I put in a 3.5lb. CMG Trigger for under $100 that breaks at 3lbs. Like glass. The Gun runs everything, wonderful machining.
You would be very happy.

I got a pws pcc 9mm in 9.5” barrel. I got it zeroed but not yet proven in actual competition.

CKARMS with Taccom ULW barrel is hard to beat, especially for steel. It comes with a mil-spec trigger, which have been proven to be pretty nice, but that allows you to choose the trigger “you” want rather than what the builder thinks you should have.

I sent you a PM. See what you think.

Thanks for the PM and the offer.  It sounds like a very fine gun but I specifically want to avoid one assembled from various supplier's parts.   I'm an adequate tinkerer and "gunsmith" but I want one source to go to if I have a problem.

No hands on experience but have followed the build up to their unveiling and the MBX certainly deserves a hard look from anyone who didn’t want to piecemeal a PCC.

The JP will come out of the box ready to run 50,000 rounds minimum. I put 175+ power factor down to well below 100 power factor loads through a stock gun. If you want a package you can still tinker for 10 minutes but will work even if you don’t touch it for 3 months of matches, get the JP and the SCS tuning kit to play with weights and springs. 

 

Or or just do what I do and wipe off old lube, add more lube and have fun shooting a really fun gun.

 

Feel free to PM me if you have any questions about loads or options.

JP Is a winner and holds its value

+1, you definitely get what you pay for.

JP is definitely the front runner.  The only complaint I hear from people who have them is they are heavy.  But then again, My build weighs 8lbs.

Y'all keep saying the JP is heavy?!?  Compared to my LANTAC with a Vortex Razor, it feels like a toy in my hand.  And come to think of it, it is a toy, a pretty badass toy!!  I traded for mine on Wednesday, sighted it in at an indoor range and shot an IPDA match with it on Saturday.  It hasn't failed yet.  Love it.

You could also consider the Ruger 9mm PCC.  From all accounts I've read they are very reliable.

That's what the original post says he is currently using

Yes, and while he wants an AR type PCC he really didn't say whether or not he thinks the Ruger is essentially trouble free and reliable.

Spend the money and buy the JP.

^^^this. From a disgruntled sig mpx owner two times over. Just get a JP and be done. There are 5 of us at the club running gen2 sig MPXs, only one has a rig that doesn't malfunction.

 

I've seen good things from the cmmg guard, havent seen enough rounds down range to be conclusive on it.
