SHOT Show 2018: Ruger PC Carbine

posted on January 24, 2018
Ruger brought back its pistol-caliber carbine in a big way with the launch of the new Ruger PC Carbine, designed for versatility, compact carry and ruggedness. The new carbine is compatible with both Glock and SR-series pistol magazines with a simple change of the magazine-well insert.

In addition, the gun easily separates into two components for ease of storage and transport, thanks to a takedown mechanism borrowed from the company's 10/22 Takedown rifle. The Ruger PC Carbine also features a rugged, textured polymer stock and a flattop Picatinny rail ready for optics.
