More on the Ruger PC carbine, one of the must-sees of SHOT Show (VIDEO)

Ruger’s new pistol caliber carbine was the subject of much interest all week both on the range and the floor at SHOT Show in Las Vegas.

The blowback action 9mm, new to Ruger’s line, is capable of accepting Ruger SR-series or the new Security-9 series pistol magazines right out of the box, while a Glock 9mm well is included for those who already have a stockpile of those mags.

At just under 35-inches overall with a 16.12-inch threaded and fluted barrel, the stock is adjustable with a series of three buttpad spacers for length of pull while the carbine itself takes down for easy storage, screaming camping and hiking use. The little gun has both a reversible magazine release and charging handle to accommodate left- or right-handed preferences.

For those quiet moments or for those looking to add muzzle accessories, the barrel is standard 1/2-inch-28TPI threaded with a protector.

Speaking of aftermarket upgrades, the trigger on the PC uses 10/22 components, which means there is likely a lot that can be done in that arena. A Picatinny rail is standard, but the rifle ships with an adjustable ghost ring rear and protected blade front sight.

MSRP for the “10/22 all grown up”  is $649, but a quick look around shows them available for a good bit less.
