Guns Ruger’s New PC Charger 9mm Brace-Ready Pistol Iain Harrison March 16, 2020 Join the Conversation Ruger recently announced the newest version of its pistol caliber carbine, the PCC Charger 9mm. It's just now hitting distribution channels, and based on the success of the PC9, we're reasonably confident it will find a ready audience. Like the 10/22 Charger, the latest addition to the lineup is a chopped-down version of an existing carbine, but is sold in a pistol configuration, rather than a factory SBR. We're currently in the process of wringing this one out, but for the moment the stats are as follows: 6.5-inch hammer forged barrel, threaded 1/2-28 for the muzzle device of your choice Polymer chassis system which accepts AR15 pistol grips Interchangeable mag wells to accept Glock and Ruger pistol mags Takedown barrel and fore end Pic rail section on rear of chassis to accept braces The takedown feature means you can leave your can attached to the barrel, rather than unscrewing it The takedown feature might seem to have limited use when teamed up with a six inch tube, but when used in conjunction with a can, it really comes into its own. You can leave the suppressor connected to the host and instead use the takedown feature as a QD mount – as an added benefit, the fore end doesn't heat up anywhere near as much as the suppressor, so you can disassemble it without either waiting for it to cool, or using your shirt tail to avoid getting burned. The pistol version of the PC carbine features a polymer chassis which accepts AR pistol grips As part of our initial testing we added a Liberty Mystic X suppressor, Trijicon MRO, and SIG folding brace and it makes for a compact backpack gun- just the ticket for a run to the store to pick up more toilet paper … More in 9mm Carbines, PCC's, and Subguns on RECOIL The 9mm Carbine: Part SMG, Part Pistol, Pure Utility.
