Ruger PC Carbine Refresh

Recommended Posts

It looks like it should be on a tripod....and belt-fed.

I have seen multiple people shoot the standard version. Its a nice PCC for weekend fun. 

 

This one is fine, but if you want a more AR style version, I would proffer starting with an AR style version as the base.

I thought the whole platform felt on the heavy side.(bolt?)...... Didn't seem to point fast for me.....("Spoiled" by the Taccom aluminum shrouded barrel AR I use I imagine?). Was very reliable Glock mags, lower cost than most AR  9mm's.....Just not for me....

What stinks is that as a CT resident, because of those 'evil' features you can't purchase a 9mm AR-platform unless you start with a pre-ban lower ($$$) or gear something configured as an 'other'.  So one can't even get a Ruger in this new configuration anyway.

That sucks. Do people there have to use the conversion kits that allow regular 223 lowers to accept glock mags?

Yes, I do on my dedicated PCC which is based off a PreBan lower ( I use the Stern Defense).  For just personal use you can get a new 'other' configured AR-9 type that uses a pistol brace and a 12"+ barrel, and many local competitions or steel/plates allow shooter to use that as PCC.  But actual USPSA requires an actual 'rifle' with a shoulder stock.

 

Some have older AR's with magwell converters for Colt mags and such.

 

What's even worse is that for USPSA matches in NY state where I want to shoot PCC, when I had the regular Ruger PC9, I couldn't legally shoot it in that state because it had a threaded barrel....a la just one 'evil' feature.

Why are you allowed to have a new AR-9 pistol, but not a new AR-9 rifle?  Maybe I shouldn't try to understand the logic behind gun laws...

Not an AR-9 pistol, an 'Other'.....something that's neither a pistol nor a rifle.....a la, it comes with a pistol brace not a stock, but the barrel is longer than 12" (overall length over 26") and it has a vertical fore grip from the 'factory'.

 

It's screwy.
