Ruger’s Pistol Caliber Perfection: The PC9 SHOT Show 2018

Share:

This is going to be hard to come by, for a while. Ruger has the capacity to run-up production, but even at the MSRP of $649, these PC9s are not going to stay on store shelves long.

This is the ultimate utilitarian 9mm carbine. It is sturdy, without being heavy. The barrel is threaded for those who want to quiet it down a bit. You can use Ruger’s magazines, or GLOCK mags (17 or 19).

It isn’t going to win any beauty contests, but damn…. This is a great reboot. The GLOCK mag compatibility speaks volumes for Ruger’s desire to fill a huge hole in the market. Who wouldn’t want a 9mm carbine that runs off GLOCK mags?

    Ruger is really shaking up the industry with new product introductions and re-innovating old products. This new PC9 will be on my farm without a doubt (as soon as I can find a dealer who actually has one in stock). Thanks for this presentation, it makes me anxious to get a PC9.

    Ruger’s PCC is on my “buy this year” list. I’m impressed with what I’ve read – now I just need to get one in my hands to try…
