JP Ready Rifle PCC - which model? 5.5” w/ shroud vs 14.5” pinned

Recommended Posts

Good Afternoon!

 

Looking to buy a JP Ready Rifle PCC from Ben Stoeger pro shop. Trying to decide on the model I want. Any feedback is appreciated. I will leave links to the two models below. 
 

#1

https://benstoegerproshop.com/jp-rifles-gmr-15-9mm-competition-pcc-carbine/

 

$1699 - 
JP Rifles GMR-15™ 9mm Competition PCC Carbine

 

This model has 14.5” pinned and welded barrel. Basic JP internals. Basic hogue stock.

$1989 -

JP Rifles GMR-15™ 9mm Custom Competition PCC Carbine
 

This model has a 5.5” barrel with 16” aluminum shroud. This is the lightweight barrel. Upgraded internals. Raptor charging handle. UBR stock. Maybe a little better trigger. 
 

———————————

 

A couple concerns I have are:

accuracy of the different barrels

 

weight difference and how that will affect recoil and shooting stages.

 

i will be putting a Trijicon MRO on top if that makes a difference.

 

just trying to get advice on the price difference, seems like the custom model is a bit more upgraded but I don’t know enough about it to tell how big of a difference the upgrades will make in shooting. 
 

Thanks for your input!

All depends what is the  main purpose. If you are looking for Steel Challenge, 5.5" barrel is the way to go. If you will use it for USPSA / IDPA, I do recommend 14.5"  . You can also review JP  site for ready rifles or order it in rifle builder section. I ordered mine to JP and get it in less of 2 months

I got the 14.5” pinned and welded from BSPS back in September just before nationals. It ran great at the match and has been extremely reliable since then. The JP is much heavier than the MPX I ran previously, but reliability is king.

No experience with the 5.5” but my MPX did have a short barrel with extension. That setup balanced really well and transitioned fast. I’d imagine the same would be true for the JP 5.5”.

The 14.5" is a pin and weld and the 5.5" is a build one of the sales guys (that is also deep in PCC) dreamed up for his perfect JP.
The biggest differences are going to be the 5 Stainless short stroke on the 5.5", the UBR stock and the Raptor Charging handle. If you like the UBR stock, which I do, and want a lighter front end go with the 5.5". 

If you want a lighter stock and the 14.5" pin/weld barrel, you can upgrade with SCS buffer with the Short Stroke conversion kit from BSPS and swap the charging handle if you don't like the Badger. Really you only use it at make ready and unload and show clear so it's one of the least used parts on a JP PCC anyway. The triggers will feel pretty much identical, the barrels will both shoot well and most importantly the guns will both run 100% reliable. 

If you're going with USPSA, you might also consider adding a Taylor Freelance Magwell and some TF Basepads to your order. Feel free to message me with questions but bottom line is I'd definitely run either rifle at any PCC competition (USPSA, SCSA or Outlaw) and feel confident.
