First Look: Tandemkross Titan Magazine Release

posted on August 15, 2019

The Ruger PC Carbine is Shooting Illustrated’s Rifle Of The Year for 2019, and it’s easy to see why. Compact and comfortable, it leverages the proven design of the Ruger 10/22 rifle and teams it up with the increased power of the 9 mm cartridge. Firearm accessories manufacturer Tandemkross, known for its high-quality 10/22 accessories, has just released an innovative new upgrade for the Ruger PC Carbine.

“Tandemkross has a reputation for breaking paradigms in the firearms industry, and this new “Titan” Magazine Release for the Ruger PC Carbine is no different," said Bryan Haaker, Tandemkross business development manager. "When our customers started asking for a larger magazine release we decided to apply what we learned from previous implementations on other firearms and combined that with feedback from dozens of seasoned Steel Challenge competitors. This new magazine release is so easy to find and actuate by feel, no looking required, that the speed of a magazine change is reduced to a fraction of what it takes with a stock button. Don't take my word for it. Watch our install video or even better, try it for yourself.”

Because of its small size and its flush design, the standard magazine release for the Ruger PC Carbine can be a challenge to use, especially in a competition. The new Titan Extended Magazine Release by Tandemkross extends and increases the surface area of the magazine release for easier manipulation and quicker magazine drops.

Made of CNC-machined 6061-T6 aluminum for long lasting durability, the Titan Extended Magazine Release extends and increases surface area of the magazine release for easier manipulation and quicker magazine drops. Designed with deep grooves for maximum grip and control, the oversized magazine release is compatible with all PC Carbine models in both 9 mm or .40 S&W.

MSRP for the Titan Extended Magazine Release is $29.99, and more information is available at
